Chanel Limited Edition Mademoiselle J12

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


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.

Chanel #BaselWorld2017 Watch Novelties

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


This just in! With #BaselWorld2017 currently ongoing in Basel, Switzerland, Chanel has released a fine selection of watch novelties for the year, and this post will pretty much cover all the ones that I think are to die for. No word yet on their exact prices or release dates, so for now you’ll just have to be content with ogling them online here.

First up, the new #MademoiselleJ12, which is THE watch that marries your love for Coco Chanel and the J12 most wondrously. Limited to just 555 pieces worldwide per colour, it features a lacquered illustration of the Gabrielle herself whose hands literally tell time, yes, they move. Available in both Black and White ceramic styles, the tentative price is set at EUR6900 for now. Which, in all honesty, makes it a pretty cool collectible that won’t exactly break the bank either, especially if you’re a lover of anything and everything Chanel.


For something more understated and something even the boys can get for themselves now, allow me to present the new variations on the Boyfriend. On the left, the sublime Boyfriend in Tweed Beige Gold set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds. Available in Small and Medium sizes, the one I’m tempted by is the one on the right, the Boyfriend in a new size, Large. Measuring some 37 mm by 28.6 mm, it’s definitely something the more forward of men amongst you can sport on your wrist. Feel the one in Tweed here is still too flashy? There’s a large one in steel, finished with an alligator strap that’s also very handsome.


Next we’ve got the Première Camélia Skeleton, one of the pieces specially created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Première watch. Equipped with Chanel’s second in-house movement, the Calibre 2, the Camélia has been reimagined into the movement of this fine timepiece which you can already see right through. Yes, that’s nothing revolutionary but given how much thought must have gone into the movement to represent that iconic bloom makes it pretty spectacular in my books.


There are so many more pieces I’ve yet to share with you all, but let’s end off for now with another J12. Limited to just 1200 pieces and only available in White ceramic, it’s known as the J12 Graffiti, which you’ll surely get why just by looking at the watch face. Purely a graphic interpretation with all the numbers having fallen off the face (and some on the bezel), this 38 mm beauty is perfect for the woman who has a sense of humour, prefers living a life unconventional and doesn’t mind fun for fun’s sake, which in a way, is pretty much how Coco Chanel lived hers.

Tiffany & Co. Paloma’s Groove Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


As if we needed another reason to love Tiffany & Co., what with their pretty robin egg blue boxes and delightfully enchanting jewellery pieces, here comes a new collection even the menfolk can surely appreciate. Simply known as Paloma’s Groove, it is designer Paloma Picasso’s ode to the men in our lives, graphic and handsome in a way that your man can appreciate, what with its well-placed grooves and tactile quality.


Available in full selection of jewellery pieces from a cuff and cufflinks to pendants and even rings that come in 2 different widths, they come in 18K yellow and rose gold, along with sterling silver (for the more wallet-conscious, of course) and even brushed titanium for a finish that’s truly something that must have been created just for me.

Starting from SGD385 for the narrow ring in sterling silver, prices peak at SGD4900for a pair of 18K gold cufflinks, which thankfully for me, doesn’t matter because I’m almost never in a proper dress shirt.


And here they are, the titanium rings that I love love love. Now if I can only get the mister to also wear a matching one as me, I’ll be as happy as a lark.

Hermès Rose-Gold Collier de Chien In Barenia, Black Epsom & English Green Epsom

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


One never needs a reason to blog about Hermès, especially here on Bagaholicboy, and tonight’s #diediemustbuy #wristparty #musthaves that will torture me to no end (until I own them, of course) is this gorgeous trio of Collier de Chien bracelets that are frankly a cut above the rest.

Besides being in the 3 colours I adore the most (there’s Barenia, there’s classic Blackand then there’s English Green, because who doesn’t love a deep dark green, right?), they all come adorned with the most fitting of cherries on the top: rose-gold plated hardware, which I think is still the best thing Hermès ever introduced since the invention of ice-cream. I know, I’m not making any sense, since no one actually needs 3 bracelets all at once (but I do), considering how we only have two wrists anyway, right?

For those of you lucky enough to chance upon any of these beauties (I did happen to see the RGHW Collier de Chien in Barenia at Liat Hermès a couple of weeks back), you should also know that they are now priced at SGD1850 a pop. And for those of you travelling anytime soon, the Collier de Chien is priced at USD1150 in the States,GBP780 in the United Kingdom and EUR975 in Europe. And if anyone is heading down under soon, it’s priced at AUD1670 in Australia.

Cartier goes bold and untouchable with new cactus-inspired jewellery range

Cartier cactus jewellery (2)

Cartuier cactus jewellery (1)
The desert-themed collection was launched in a unique setting. A vast open space off Avenue Franklin Roosevelt next to the River Seine in Paris displayed each piece of jewellery in mirrored viewing booths. The items were placed delicately on desert landscapes made from orange sand piles. Guests relished on these pieces by savouring on green foie-gras balls dipped in nuts and other hors d’oeuvres which the waiters circulated. Dinner by “twice Michelin-starred Lisbon chef José Avillez”, was later served.

Wear the night sky on your wrist with Bell and Ross’ latest timepiece

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


The watch features Bell and Ross’ aviation collection round dial within a square case. Inside the 39mm satin polished steel case is a BR-CAL.102 Quartz movement. The watch is equipped with hour and minute functions and comes with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a midnight blue alligator strap. On the dial are seven diamonds that represent the constellation Aquila and 12 metal dots to indicate indices. The watch comes in two variants, a regular steel one and one with 66 diamonds on the bezel.
We love both the concept and the execution of this celestial timepiece. The inspiration of the night sky is clear and makes for a versatile timepiece. We only have one gripe, the metal indices were totally unnecessary. Usually, we can’t stand blank faced watches with missing indices, but here the metal dots really distract from the constellation.
