Chanel has unveiled a uniquely luxurious watch collection and it's as much an ode to the designer as it is to the decade...

When it launched its J12 ceramic watch back in the noughties, Chanel established itself as a horological trendsetter. Now, the maison looks set to push the benchmark once again with the introduction of the J12 XS collection. With a case measuring a mere 19mm, the new timepiece, which is available in white or black, is complemented by a slim patent leather calfskin strap. Each strap is juxtaposed with an accompanying matte cuff with silver piping. As well, several exclusive editions elevate the watch from monochromatic simplicity to couture sophistication; the Karl Lagerfeld-inspired gloves edition from Causse, the Lesage-embroidered cuffs edition and the exquisite jewellery ring version.
