Sekonda Watch: The Chanel J12 Replica

A few of you may have already seen the Chanel J12 watch, which seems to be very popular with both celebrities and us regular folk. I have no idea what the cost is but I know it would be a price I wouldn't be willing (or able!) to pay.


I saw this Sekonda watch from Argos (below) and thought it looked like a great replica of the Chanel J12. As you can see they're not too dissimilar. And best of all it only cost £19.99.


I had to have quite a few links taken out as the wrist band was huge. I always wish the shop would do this for free. It only takes a couple of minutes and it seems silly to pay for a watch and then have to pay extra because I need fewer links than they provide. But it's worth haggling, girls. The watch man in the market tried to charge me £10 to take the links out (how ridiculous!) but I said no and told him I'd pay £3, which he accepted, hoorah!

So I'm very happy with my watch bargain! There's always great replica's to be found so until I can afford designer prices I'll be buying these as an alternative.

  3. You can haggle in Argos?! o_o
    I got my chain links removed for free... They said I'd only have to pay the second time (but obvs, there wont be a second time if you get the right amount removed the first time).

  12. I brought this watch around Xmas time and I love it! It looks great, is really easy to read and looks almost identical to the Chanel one.

    Argos are really hit and miss about taking out links. The first store said they would have to send it off but the second store did it without any problems.

    Like you I'm happy to wear this until I can afford some real Chanel! x

  13. Oh hun, I bought the same one from last year (Argos) and the lady there actually removed the links for me for free -.- You should have asked a staff =(

  14. Nice bargaining skills!! That is a cool watch, my friend found a replica of the J12 at a place called Forever New, about $AU50...a nice fee compared to the thousands of dollars the real one is!
