Has anyone else noticed the design changes to some of the J12 watches? I was perusing Chanel.com and noticed that the pic of the 38mm white w/diamond markers J12 has a few design changes- the markers are smaller and have been moved up on the inner edge instead of on the face, the date appears to be much smaller and is now up against the silver circle on the face (it used to be between the 4 & 5), and 'Swiss Made' is now under the 6 position diamond instead of more to the sides of it.
Anyone know when they changed the design and if this is permanent?
I prefer the 'old' design.
Below is a pic of the 'new' design in white 38mm w/diamond marker and a ruby marker version that sports the 'old' design.
Also, does anyone know why some of the J12s have the date in the upper position against the silver circle and some have it in the 'old' position between the 4 & 5? I noticed that some with the 'old' markers design still have the date in that position. Did they start changing the date position in a certain year but keep the old markers design until recently??
sammiekat, You have great eyes! I would have never noticed the differences, but they are there. I hate the date window on the white one. I can hardly read any of the dates anyway, but lol that one looks microscopic!!
I think the black 33mm I've been visiting is the new style. The store had it less than 2 weeks. I'm going again tomorrow to visit and maybe purchase! It has the diamond markers and is a very good deal. Originally the AD told me it had ruby markers but he made a mistake. After asking everyone's opinions on the ruby (people preferred diamonds) he ended up having the diamond one afterall. I may just wear it home!
