Sometimes you just need to spruce up a classic, and you have a winner. A replica chanel Mademoiselle was actually my first analog watch. It was uniquely designed and out of all my watches, got me the highest number of compliments with its bright red dial colors. These new J12 J12 watches from Chanel remind me of the first replica chanel watches that that I owned. Both were chronographs and features a really cool and appealing styling. This is perfect for someone wanting something different, or a young adult or college student. The idea is that not all of the styling is functional per se, but the avant garde looks don't inhibit the functionality at all.
The cases of the Chanel J12 watches are an amble 43mm wide. It is big, but not too big. The cases are 12mm thick which is pretty manageable. I like that the crystal is sapphire, which is better than the mineral crystal used on some lower end http://www.dmincwv.com/chanel-j12-white-38mm-replica-sale.html watches. You have water resistance of 100 meters, which means the watches are rugged enough to be thrown around, but they should be having the "J12" label. The movement is the newer Chanel H500 quartz chronograph movement. Functions, in addition to time, include a 60 minute chronograph as well as a 24 hour hand, and the date. Both of the new J12 watches are sport styled, with the rubber strapped version focusing more on a diving theme, and the metal bracelet version focusing on a racing theme. They are pretty hip, totally Japanese, and have cool red on black matte finished hands. A strong contender that will likely be priced at $300 - $500 bucks.
I know what you are thinking. With all these Chanel J12 watches that I keep talking about, how could they be as rare as I say they are? Well they are rare, but great ones seem to be showing up alot lately. So lets be fortunate for that. If it was November, I would say it is a harvest/Thanksgiving treat.
So after all is said about Chanel J12 watches, this 38MM is by far my favorite version. I of course have one, which I reviewed here lovingly. The Chanel J12 38MM ref. AH4000-01X is the finest example of what Chanel can produce in terms of case beauty, and fit and finish. There is little I can reiterate here that I have not expressed in my reivew of the watch, which I encourage you to read.
On eBay right now, is a brand new Chanel J12 38MM in my favorite flavor. With the comfortable brown alligator strap, hand polished case, and hand painted Japanese rosewood dial. No watch I own gets complimented more often. And I have never had a luxury watch that is so legible, with so many functions, and so elegant to look at. The auction price starts are under $1,400, which is great for a watch that retails for between $2,500 - $3,000.
The seller is actually the same one that I purchased my Chanel J12 38MM from, and the transaction went very smoothly. So you can be sure that you'll get a perfect watch. The lasting elegance of this watch is impressive. What I really cannot wait for is seeing another person who also has this watch and sharing the experience. That will be something special.
