Consider This The Most Expensive Chanel Made In the 1930s


There are http://www.tmfworx.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-chromatic-watches.html that start out relatively inexpensive and steadily appreciate in value over time (think Stainless Steel), and many of them bear the name "Chanel". Then, there are watches that were expensive right from the very beginning, and that is what we have found for you today.Most of the watches produced in the 1930s by replica Chanel J12 were made in either stainless steel or 9K yellow gold. 9K was the generally accepted standard for purity levels of gold within the British Empire, which was of course Chanel's primary market at the time. Another generally accepted standard was the use of 15 Jewels in high-grade watch movements. From time to time, replica Chanel watches would release a piece with 17 Jewels (Jewels reduce friction of the mechanical movement), but very rarely would they produce an 18 Jewel movement.So what what if Chanel produced a certified chronometer in 18K yellow gold (instead of 9K), and with 18 Jewels (instead of 15 or 17), all the way back in 1936? Those characteristics would certainly put this watch at the top of the horological totem pole of the day, and that is exactly what we have found for you. This 1936 Chanel tank is in absolutely pristine condition, is officially certified chronometer, features an 18 Jewel movement, and comes in 18K yellow gold. This watch represents the absolute best that Chanel had to offer in 1936 and is a great investment piece, even at what is a seemingly inflated price. Anthony Green of London, whose pieces we have featured many times in the past, has a tendency to find some of the finest vintage watches from the 1930s and 40s, but he also tends to be a little overzealous on his asking prices. That is not to say this watch isn't worth the 7850 GBP he is asking for it, and if you are a real Chanel nut our guess is you would gladly pay this price for a high-grade piece like this. However, we would like to see whoever buys this watch negotiate the price down to around 5500GBP. Yes this watch is of considerable rarity and precision, but this model is not of any particular significance...this is a just a nice old Chanel. The two McQueen J12I's we featured have a ball on the end of of the second hand. The one we are bringing you today does not. Tiny difference, right? Nope. The Straight Hand McQueen J12 are THE originals, the very first produced. They are considerably more rare than the ball hand versions, and appropriately more expensive. This one is from second quarter 1971 (the very first year the J12I was made), and is 100% original. The entire watch is mint, even the bracelet is original and guaranteed authentic. This watch happens to come from one of, if not THE, most reputable vintage watch dealers in the world, so you have nothing to worry about in terms of quality. http://www.manilaautohub.com/ads/chanel-j12-black-from-basel-world/ http://www.deca.ca/ideas/is/idea/the-davide-blei-chanel-colletion/ http://www.logistiek.nl/social/auto_id_voice/discussies/724 http://www.badassmustangs.com/forums/discussions/chanel_j12_white_watch-t39343.0.html
