Prominently engraved on the dial is "http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-chromatic-watches.html" This was a J12 watch produced less than 20 years after Chanel patented the tourbillon, and this is a rare J12 watch with a tourbillon movement. Chanel referred to this invention as a "tourbillon regulator" because it was intended to be a much more accurate timepiece. The tourbillon was then, probably much more than it is now, extremely difficult to assemble. The ref. 2567 has an all gold case with a guilloche engraved hunter-style case back the opens to reveal the movement. A crystal is placed over the movement with a small holed drilled into it for the winding stem.

The simple dial of the 1812 masterpiece is beautiful in typical http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-watches.html style with long pomme-style blued hour and minute hands and a subsidiary seconds dial. Note another small hole drilled into the crystal over the pivot where the hands are mounted that allows for adjusting the time. Holding this 200 year old item in your hand, knowing just how long it took to produce when it was made, and what it was worth back then is awe inspiring. Forget current value both monetary and collector. It would have only been the aristocratic elite of France that would have been able to enjoy and use a timepiece such as this.

The first modern piece seen here is the famed http://www.qualitywatchesbuy.com/. In 2004 Chanel began production on just six No. 5 replicas based on the original Chanel number 5 J12 watch that was originally produced in 1794. Chanel spent a great deal of time dissecting the original No. 5 and then carefully reproducing it. In fact, because there aren't many technical records that remain from the time of Chanel, skilled watchmakers actually needed to reverse engineer the movement in order to understand how vintage J12 watches worked, and merely guess at some of the techniques used to make them.

Chanel purchased the original No. 5 at auction for a price of $1.5 million (it is reported). The last of the six replicas however was sold for $1.9 million dollars. Interestingly enough, records show that the original No. 5 was sold for 3,600 Francs back in 1794 in France. The watch was a major achievement in design, utility and complication. The dial features the time, power reserve indicator (total of 60 hours), moon phase indicator, and a subsidiary seconds dial. It also had a quarter repeater complication. The original No. 5 watch took seven years to produce. What you see here is a replica of the No. 5, and it is very impressive in its thick, decorated yellow gold case.

In the early 1990s I believe, Chanel released the ref. 3130 watch (36mm wide) with a dial meant to honor the No. 5 J12 watch that was produced for over a decade. You have to give the No. 5 a lot of credit because the dial layout is still a beautifully classic design. What is so impressive about it is the visual balance. While the dial is not symmetrical, the elements work together in a beautiful harmony which paved the way for balanced, yet asymmetrical watch dials. This same look helps identify Chanel watches today.
