    here's a fun one - Chanel J12 Marine

    I really like this one.
    Got it for a lower price as the previous owner had definitely put it through its paces...
    the original rubber strap and buckle has seen better days...
    its the 42mm version advertised at 38mm..probably why it flew under the radar on the bay...
    I have to say Chanel does the whole ceramic case thing very very well.

    AR pretty dinged up...should get it polished off

    u can see dust specks on the inside



    time for a service. lots of sand









    back from the service

    put it on a shaved down 22mm (this one's 21)..it sits higher on the lugs so the watch sits better on the wrist now




    all cleaned up: dust gone




    case back

    on the wrist






    lume shots of course






    enjoy

    Yeah, good job. The bezel and dial gloss comes across great in the pics. A nice little beater you got yourself there

    I like me some 'fashion' watches
    the sapphire bezel makes it a 'pretty' 'beater'

    What ever happened with you and a Hermes Dressage? Was that you? I think that's a HAWT watch.

    Nothing wrong with that Chanel, nothing at all.
