Well I am learning about these watches right now because I have seen A LOT of them on ebay from some Asian countrys, Guess what, FAKE! I am currently learning more ways to spot fakes so I will update this review as I find out more, but here are a few things I have found out:
#1 FAKE J12 watches have a rivet, etc on every link on the side (where you can remove the link) Real ones have a few on each side by the clasp ONLY! BEWARE OF J12 WATCHES THAT HAVE A RIVET ON EVERY LINK. (see photo below)
#2 Real Chanel J12 watches do not come with the bands covered in plasitc (see photo below)
#3 If it is from an Asian Country or Coast less than $1,000- FAKE. But there some sellers that list their fakes for high prices & sell them unfortunatley!
#4 YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, Do you actually think you can get a $5,000- $10,000 watch for $200- $1,000 ??? People on ebay who have 10 listed a week- FAKES! These watches are Limited and NO ONE can get 100's of them...
#5 Look at a real Chanel watch on Chanel.com. It's funny how some of the J12 watches currently on ebay with diamonds around the entire band don't have diamonds on the last link like a real one.
#6 Look at the date on the face, on Authentic watches the date number is Vertical and on Fakes it is Horozontal. BUT NOT ALL fakes have the date Horozontal, just the really cheap ones. There are fakes that just came on the market that no one can tell, only by opening up the back can you tell.
Please look at this review in the future, I will be adding more ways to spot a fake as I find them. I just got tired of seeing certian people make $1,000's a week on selling $50 Fakes.
Be very careful & have EVERY watched checked out, even if you buy from a Jeweler on ebay, My advise to you, Have everything double & tripple checked Don't let thr draw of a good deal get you stuck with a cheap fake.
See the rivets on every link....FAKE
Band is wrapped in plastic...& Chanel never made a watch with silver links down the center of the band... FAKE
