Hi everyone, is it worth buying a Chanel J12 watch?
Please share your thoughts
What are the pros and cons?

As long as big watches are still "in," J12 is too..

Ps. Chanel manufactures new versions every year.
Baggage, I have a Rolex two tone date just with diamonds and a SS Cartier tank. Does it make sense to get a white Chanel J12 now? If you had my two watches and were going to splurge on a watch, what would it be?

Good question.. you have two beautiful watches!

I love the white J12, but with my coloring it only looks good in the summer when I'm tan, so for me personally I probably wouldn't get it unless I decided it was a mad money spend on a watch specifically for the spring/summer. I do own a black J12 w/diamond markers, 38mm automatic, and it is fabulous and takes a beating like no other with no signs of wear and tear. Good luck deciding and let us know if you purchase it. Would love to see it.

I think the 38 would be miles too big, same with the 33, so I am seriously considering the 29. I have tiny wrists. Is that too small? I’m in Atlanta. I think there is a boutique inside NM.

I'm very tall but small boned...I have the 33mm and find it perfect. I might add that I want to make sure I can read the time, first and foremost. KWIM?
For reference.................

I am also thinking about getting the black one but torn over the LE this year. I want automatic so my size option is limited yet my wrist is just medium size. Am I crazy for wanting this over Cartier Santos? I have 2 Rolex to swap around.

PS. why is this in Celine thread?
