Ten Loves: Chanel Code Coco Watch
Her name is Coco and she’s all you’ve ever wanted to be. The latest wonder coming from the magical workshop of Chanel Watches is Code Coco, a timepiece riff-off of the classic 2.55 Chanel handbag. The bag’s signature clasp has now turned into a real piece of jewellery, with the actual twisting of the clasp revealing or hiding the dials, depending on your what you feel like. Time is a secret worth keeping, you know? The watch was first released in a steel version with a single princess-cut diamond, a subtle jewel if we ever saw one. A new, just-released version of the Code Coco comes in the oh-so-Chanel jet-black ceramic. Yes, that’s the one for you if you’re a LBW (little black watch) kinda gal.
But here at Ten, we like our wrists just a tad more extravagant. That’s why the only Code Coco on our minds is the one drenched in diamonds. 18K white gold, 42 baguette-cut, 136 brilliant-cut and 321 princess-cut diamonds. That’s just about 55 carats of gems, here for your consideration. Why not, right? We believe Shirley Bassey was right when she said diamonds are forever. And ever. And ever. The code is Coco and the time is now. Just scroll down – the coolest Chanel chicks Alice Dellal and Alma Jodorowsky are wearing it and so should you. Meet you at the Ritz!
