My sister just called she has the opportunity to purchase a white j12
from a reseller. I do not know anything about the watch.
Can you give me info or photos to tell her what to look for.

She can purchase watch for $3k? Is this a good price? No diamonds

WOW!!! That seems high. Is it the automatic? Still sounds high.

The J12 without diamonds retails in the $3,500 range. I know because I was looking at a black J-12 with diamond markers and retail was $4,100.

Personally, for $500 more I'd rather buy it at the boutique where I know I have all of the paperwork.

Thanks ladies we did not know never purchased or even looked at Chanel watches before.

Question is there any thing we should know about the movement?
Should the second had have any details?
Are they all automatic? How does it run batteries?

Call the Chanel 800# (here: 800-550-0055) for pricing. I don't know how much the automatic retails for, but it can't be too much more than the battery operated one.
Chanel # is 800-880-0005, I have called the number Mon gave and they gave me the CHANEL number - LOL

Are the watch bands ceramic?
This from a Chanel watch catalog about the ceramic:

High-tech ceramic: Borrowed from state-of-the-art technology, ceramic has extraordinary characteristics: non-oxidising, scratchpoof, and hardness just below that of diamonds. "On the international MOHS scale, diamonds have the highest score of 10, high-tech ceramic registers at 9, while steel and gold are respectively just at 5 and 2.5". And so, diamond is the only material used, with extreme precision, to work, form and polish each ceramic component to achieve the perfect aesthetic appearance demanded by the creater.
