    As per title, looking to get the J12 White Ceramic which is @ £2050 at a local jewellers.

    I know you can get discounts on other brands, so can i expect anything on a Chanel?

    Its a pretty posh shop so didnt want to ask just yet :p


    and also, do they hold their value?

    Yeah, just because having a white ceramic anything on your arm seems a little... feminine to me.

    Is this the one you mean? It does look pretty girly.

    2 grand for that? dont think you will get a discount, but if you hang around outside the shop you might see them laughing their balls off as they count the money.

    with chanel you are just paying for the name,they have no in house movements etc, so in fact you could by the same watch for between 80+ upwards (thats assuming it has an auto 2824 movement,which pre build of half decent quality usually have) ,but 2K ? someone is having a laugh somewhere and thats if it an auto movement, if its quartz it actually worth about a fiver on a good day.

    Why? Why? I'm not taking about the design of the watch but please don't buy a Chanel, I really can't imagine it holding its value well at all. Get a good quality Omega. Rotty is your best person about watches.
