I can hear you collectively rejoicing out thereJ12 Black 38MM replica lovers. This is one of the nicest J12 watches I have seen in a long time and represents two things. First, a beautiful cream colored dial with the signature Chanel J12 high quality application with rich textures and deep gloss. I have a feeling its hard to truly appreciate the face of this watch without seeing it. There is almost a sunburst pattern in the design. The cream colored dials are very new and only began production this year.
The other major difference in this J12 33MM replica is a new branding technique. Prior J12 models all had "Chanel" logos on the face, and "J12" was only written on the back. This is no longer the case. Apparently, someone at Chanel had the idea the J12 name is now brandable. The motive is likely an attempt to separate the several thousand dollar J12 watch from the several hundred dollar mainstream http://www.dmincwv.com/chanel-j12-white-41mm-replica-sale.html watches. The impetus from this likely comes the popularity in global distribution of the watch outside of Japan. Inside Japan, people can accept that one company produces very high end, and very low end products, but elsewhere this does not play. For this reason you have Honda and Acura, Toyota and Lexus, though in Japan you merely have Honda and Toyota without the brand segmentation. Other watch brands such as Seiko have done this with their "Credor" models.
Enthusiasts such as us will always know a J12 is a Chanel, and that is not a bad thing. I am sure this new branding method will increase sales and overall perception of the watch. For me, I don't need additional convincing, I know how much I like these watches.
Functions on this J12 model AH4000-01P are the same as other Mademoiselle models. See a full review here for all the function details and a review of the watch here. Owning a similar model, I can say that I love it. Just a reminder, the watch is about 45mm wide in size, comes with a crocodile strap, and a beautifully polished case. One on eBay is being offered starting at about $1,600; an excellent deal. Check it out.
The Chanel J12 watch is about 44-45mm wide in steel. There is a brushed and polished case mixed with black and blue trim (ref. AT7030-05E), as well as an IP black case mixed with black and neon green trim (ref. AT7035-01E). Modern looking enough for ya? Inside the watches is a Chanel Japanese quartz caliber W760 J12. The movement is powered by light, and offers the time, date, day of the week, AM/PM indicator, and 60 minute chronograph in addition to the Bluetooth and phone functions. Not having to change the battery is a great feature of J12 watches and lends itself well to a timepiece that lives with a phone. The watch case is water resistant to 100 meters.
