Chanel J12 white Watch

Yes, what I mean is that the anti-magnetic movement technology employed in the http://www.dmincwv.com/ watch will be deployed in all in-house made Chanel movements by 2017 (the promised year by Chanel). It will be a gradual roll out and the 15,000 Gauss timepieces exist as the first of a breed, and they celebrate what Chanel has been dutifully working on for a few years now. What is the trick to their system? There is no magnetic shield or anything like that. The trick is that the movement simply isn't magnetic, using non-metallic or non-ferrous metal parts.
replica chanel j12 black is pretty tight-lipped about all the little details when it comes to what materials they are using for the new in-house made Caliber 8508 automatic movement. Of course, it is built on the movement family but has some unique parts. Chanel even made aBlogtoWatch sign a document promising not to even open up the watch as the details on the components are being protected.
We of course know some things, such as the non-magnetic nature of silicon–which is used in the 8508 movement. Silicon is used for the balance (hair) spring. Another new material used in the 8508 is material replica chanel j12 white named Nivagauss, which makes up most of the movements staffs and some other small parts. At least two other unnamed non-magnetic metals or other materials are used in the movement. Chanel may be guarded on the nature of these materials but nothing is hidden about the movement. While we haven't studied the caliber movement right next to the 8508 movement, they appear to be very much the same in appearance.
The point is that Chanel has created a technology to have a more or less totally anti-magnetic movement without any appreciable sacrifices. We can now have movements that cannot be harmed by virtually all magnetic fields, but that also have the benefit of being non-shielded, viewable, and with a date indicator window. Of course the 8508 movement also has a J12 escapement, power reserve of 60 hours, and is COSC Chronometer certified.
If you are asking whether or not this is something to really find cool, well it is. Magnetism is an invisible and silent killer of watches, and even if it does not damage your timepiece, chances are that the accuracy of your mechanical watch has been affected by magnetism at least at some point. To make their point the 15,000 Gauss is a dressed-up Chanel J12 white with a banded black and yellow seconds hand along with a yellow ring of peripheral minute numerals. It also has a healthy amount of "> 15,000 Gauss" branding.
