Karl Lagerfeld x Fossil: Sneak a Peek at the Watches Now

A little over a year ago, we heard that Karl Lagerfeld was working on a line of watches for Fossil. Then, as the designer proceeded to appear in a Snoop Dogg music video, adopt Choupette and create makeup with Shu Uemura, it totally slipped our minds—but that won't happen again. WWD shared some early pictures of the collection this morning, and it's unforgettably cool.

There are seven styles in all, but we only got a glimpse of "The Chain" and "The Manchette" timepieces. It's reported that the rest will come in an assortment of colors and be decorated with pyramid studs, metallic leathers and shiny chains. Also, each one will incorporate an engraving of the Kaiser's unmistakable ponytailed profile.

"Like beautiful bracelets," Lagerfeld explained by way of description. "I love watches as beautiful objects."

Since the fancy wristwear was designed by fashion royalty, each one costs a tad bit more than a regular Fossil watch would—but not by much. Priced between $150 and $595, none of them are this-is-my-birthday-Christmas-and-Hanukkah-gift-combined expensive. You might, however, need to forgo impulse purchases for a few weeks. Or you can start saving now—the watches don't hit stores until February 28, so you have a few months to put some funds away.
