One of most anticipated timepieces from Chanel Horlogerie since it made its debut at #BaselWorld2017 has finally been launched, simply known as the Mademoiselle J12, featuring Coco Chanel telling time by way of her hands, of course. In tribute to the woman who started it all, the timepiece is humorous and playful, available in two colours (there’s the white on white, and the black on black), with Coco wearing her synonymous jacket, skirt, two-toned pumps and hat, before being finished with, you guessed it, pearl earrings that you could say was her uniform for most of her life.
Available in limited quantities (there are only 555 pieces per colour worldwide) because 5 was also Coco’s lucky number, it is priced at SGD10,400. Which isn’t all too bad for such a memorable piece, provided you can get it of course, because I hear the wait list is pretty long. But don’t let that stop you from heading down to Chanel’s fine jewellery boutique at Ngee Ann City (#01-04) for a look.
