Did you notice how I turned the noun watch plural in the title? That wasn’t merely because I am showing more than one version, that is because I truly want a whole collection of Chanel J12 watches. From what I have been told, collecting J12 watches becomes quite the addiction and I can easily see why.


I am not much of a watch girl myself. I appreciate watches for the functionality they bring us but think of them more as a statement piece. If I am to wear a watch, I want it to be the J12. There are so many options and the design of the watch is geometric, simple and graphic.

Since Chanel knows diamonds are a girl’s best friend, the J12 comes in diamond embezzled renditions as well. I would settle for either of these options, but even having a little glimmer with diamond markers would make my heart go pitter patter. More via Chanel.com.

    I first bought a white 33mm with diamond markers and loved it so much I bought a black 33mm with diamond markers the next day. I have very nice, really expensive watches, but these are my go to watches I wear on a daily basis. I think they are so much fun to wear and I always get noticed.

  • Gerald

    so much more fashionable than Rolex watches!!!

    • lulugurl2006

      8-O Blasphemy!! LOL jk! They are very pretty but Rolex’s are a classic IMO! I like Omega for a little bit of the unexpected tho. I have one with a mother or pearl face and I find it more functional than diamonds..

  • Tiff

  • frbspa

    ^^I think there was a price increase this month:(
    I do <3 my white one, really pops esp suitable for casual outfits. Use my black with diamond markers for more formal occasion. Love them both!!

  • Kristen

    I love mine…..wore it yesterday ~ blk with Diamonds. And yes, I want a white one too. A few months ago I was waiting in the security line at the airport and spotted a girl in front of us with a white one on and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it ~ just gorgeous!!!

    Hate to be the lone dissenter here because I LOVE my Chanel flap, but I have always thought these watches were way over-hyped. Even my SA at the Chanel boutique I shopped at had one, and she made a point to say how she much preferred Michele ceramic watches at a fraction of the cost.

    • Lisa

      I have to respectfully disagree! I have both a J12, and a Michelle ceramic. There is just no comparison….I like (and wear) my J12 so much more than the Michelle (or my Micheal Kors ceramic)…..it just has a richness, and solid-ness to it that the others don’t quite have. To each her own! :)

  • Mochababe73

    I have always wanted one of these watches, but I want to save my money for either a Tag Heur or a Cartier Tank.

  • rose60610

    These watches are very nice. But when you spend beaucoup dollars on a watch or anything else, it’d nice to know you could recoup at least a good percentage of the cost if you needed to sell the asset for cash. If that is a concern, it’s important to consider the brand. If you spent 10 G’s on a Chanel watch vs. 10 G’s on a Rolex, the Rolex would likely get the higher resale value. If you live in a world where that is not an issue whatsoever, then kudos to you. Building a wardrobe of watches can be a lot of fun. And they don’t take up that much space to boot! There are so many beautiful ones out there.
