replica Chanel watches add a new and highly useful model to their portfolio, the Chanel J12 White.Is it me or are wristwatches getting even more useful? You may remember the ingenious hand-wind “Génie” wristwatch unveiled by Breva which combined timekeeping abilities with Chromatic functionality. Now Chanel have created a similar device, still powered by mechanics and not micro-chip, and – they have even managed to slip in some kinetic winding, making their Chromatic the first automatic mechanical Chromatic wristwatch. The replica Chanel J12 has two crowns on its case side. The crown at 2 o’clock is for time and date adjustments. The second crown, located at 4 o’clock operates the Chromatic function. By unscrewing the crown to “Position 1” air is allowed into the case to enable the system to be calibrated. By pulling out the crown to “Position 2” the current height can be set. Once calibrated, the current altitude is displayed via the yellow indicator, and the corresponding air pressure via the red indication. By now you may have noticed the scale at the dial edge which displays the altitude, measured up to 15,000 feet or 4,500 meters, and the smaller scale just towards the inner dial which displays air pressure, both provide easy to read indications at a glance, and both give this new model a very professional appearance. In designing the Chromatic, have thought of every detail. When the crown has been pulled out to allow operation of the system, a red ring around the crown base alerts the wearer that the waterproof capabilities of the case has been compromised; during operation, a PTFE vapour barrier prevents moisture from entering into the case – and, no matter which type of measurement you prefer, feet or meters, Chanel have even thought of that too and will release two models, one with the scale in feet, one in meters. All Chanel watches are distinguishable by a no-frills approach to design and the Chromatic maintains a clean readable dial despite its compendium of unusual indications. The white Arabic numerals which are painted onto the black dial have been given a liberal coating of Super-LumiNova to ensure clarity after dark and although the vivid yellow and red dial accents are functional, they do give a superb contrast to the dial arrangement. The stainless steel case measures 47mm across and features a coin-edge bezel. Water resistance is to 100m. Inside, the Chanel automatic mechanical Cal. 733, based on a Sellita SW200 movement provides a power reserve of up to 38 hours. Earlier this year Chanel sent forth a confident statement of intent to the industry when they presented their first White movement in 35 years. The addition of the J12 White model to their superb portfolio, which adds automatic winding to this new genre, must surely be the icing on the cake for what has already been a momentous year thus far for Chanel.
