This is the new replica Chanel J12 sub seconds diver made to help out the Great Barrier Reef. Each watch that is sold will have Chanel donating 50 Swiss Francs (that's it?) to the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS). Didn't anyone tell replica Chanel J12 Chromatic they don't use Swiss Francs in Australia! I joke! The money will go to help keep creatures in the Great Barrier Reef alive. Basically, there are a lot of serious issues with the reef and rather than help preserve certain areas, the project is going to relocate animals. A brave endeavor indeed. "Little fish! Sign these papers, you don't live here anymore." Now get out of here... we are gonna take you to a better place... Yea, a much better place (chuckle)."
The back 0f the watch doesn't have an engraving, but rather a special plate to honor each of the 1000 pieces in thehttp://www.tmfworx.com/ set. The colors of the watch are done in ocean blue and a high contrasting orange. It makes for a neat look, and a very easy to read dial. You can see for yourself. The Chanel Great Barrier Reef watches comes on their standard rubber diver strap with metal deployment. Though I think that the steel bracelet is also available for the watch.
What about the rest of the watch? Some Chanel watches that are J12 Whites are dramatically different that their core collection. This is just a thematic change with some different colors, etc... but gives people a nice reason to invest in a subsidiary seconds diver if they have been wavering before or needed something a bit more snazzy. The watch is 47mm wide in steel and has that great dive watch case that Chanel is well-known for. Double crowns on the left side of the case are for adjusting/winding the movement, and for the helium escape valve.
The 1000 meters water resistant case is solid and comfortable. Love that blue wave pattern dial with matching blue bezel. The watch is amazingly easy to read. Inside the watch is a Swiss base ETA 2895 automatic movement with the date and a subsidiary seconds dial. Some call it the perfect dive watch. The version comes in a neoprene case with a dive log book.Whenever I get a new watch, I wear it for the following few months, almost exclusively. Why? It confirms that the hunt was worth it, and that I made the right choice. My new watch gives me great pleasure each time I look at it, which is constantly! Oh, and of course, I will soon think about my next purchase.... That is what makes me an enthusiast, and collector. Once again, this is the Chanel J12, Date ref.
