Dream Watch: The Chanel J12

Accessories, Fashion Finds, Listings We Love  /   /  By Nina Louie

Like your best jewelry—your signature necklace, your go-to earrings, and your wedding ring—your watch should make a statement you absolutely adore. So if you’re not in love with your watch, don’t hesitate: sell the thing on eBay, and trade upwards to a J12.

What’s a J12, you ask? It’s our favorite timepiece by Chanel—one that continues to haunt our ideal-wardrobe dreams. With a sporty attitude, a chunky ceramic bracelet, and a sprinkling of diamonds on the dial, the J12 hits all the right notes. It makes a statement without being showy. It looks great with light or dark clothes. It’s perfect with winter whites, but just as cool with your summertime tan.

If you love the look but not the price, Michael Kors makes some fun alternatives—also all white, with that same chunky-sporty vibe, but with crystals instead of diamonds.
