Chanel J12 White Watch Review

You'll be surprised to learn that in addition to the time, date, and 1/1000 of a second chronograph, the watch has a world time function and alarm. The world time function is neat, because it uses the upper left subdial to show you the reference time. In fact, you can choose to have the reference time on the main dial, and the second time zone on the little subdial. Again, consult the manual for this. Easily the neatest part about operating the watch is the 1/1000th of a second http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-chromatic-watches.html. When operating the hands are all flying about rapidly. It is an intense little feat of engineering, and relies of five different small motors. Though reading the measured time isn't that easy as it uses all the dials to measure the time, and you need to know how to read them. You also need pretty good vision to see all the little numbers. Seeing the miniature ballet of hands moving around never seems to get old.
What makes the http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-watches.html watch harder to use is the lack of labels on the pushers on the side of the case. There are labels on the rear of the watch, but they aren't super helpful. Many digital http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/ watches try to label the hands, at least generally so that you know what they do in most situations. That sort of exists here, you need to take the watch off to see them, and it can be a bit confusing and frustrating to figure things out without the manual. I recommend learning how to use the basic functions, and not throwing the booklet away for when you need it. As I have said in the past, Chanel does a good job at writing the manuals - so at least when you consult it to figure out how to do something, the answer isn't a horrid pain to find or understand.
Using a steel case that has been IP black coated, this J12 White watch has an impressive stance with its multi-color black, green, and yellow dial. The case wears a bit smaller than it is because of the thick bezel, but it is 46.9mm wide and 51.5mm tall. Though it isn't super thick at 13.7mm. The case is water resistant to 100 meters and has a mineral crystal. The bracelet is integrated into the case and has a push button deployment clasp. While it is not as adjustable as other Chanel bracelets, you shouldn't have a problem getting a comfortable fit. Most people won't think this watch is a Chanel, and will likely be impressed when you tell them that it is. Just don't forget the reference number so that you can tell them to go look for a Chanel J12 White! Actually on the back of the watch Chanel calls it a Wave Ceptor J12 White - there are so many names to keep track of.
Overall I am really impressed with the technology and what Chanel was able to do with the Chanel watch. The dial is really neat looking and the chronograph operation can't be beat. At $500 it is really expensive for a Chanel (by US standards - Japan has much more expensive models), but I don't think it is too unreasonable. Now I need to get back to the manual to finish understanding how to set everything.
