Manufactured by Fossil (who has also just completed purchasing Skagen watches), the watch collection consists of seven different styles and finishes ranging from matte black to gun-metal grey and polished stainless steel.

The launch collection, which is priced between $150 – $595, features limited edition packaging and specially engraved case backs, exclusive to the initial launch.
Born from the mind of Karl Lagerfeld, the watch collection boldly represents the designer’s vision translated to modern time pieces. Iconic and edgy, the seven watch platforms are presented in an assortment of colors and sizes, offering the ultimate in fashion versatility.
One of the most unique pieces in the collection is the “Karl Zip,” Lagerfeld’s favorite silhouette.
The Zip embodies everything that is Karl Lagerfeld with irreverent design and enduring appeal.
The exposed zipper is fully functional and does more than lure the eye—you can wear this runway-ready style as multiple accessories.
Stand out features within the collection include; stainless steel bracelets, luxe metallic leathers, pyramid studs and bold chains.
Another collection highlight is the “Karl 7” named after Lagerfeld’s favorite number and surrounded by a beveled top ring that achieves a sleek and modern look uncharacteristic of traditional watch designs.
Karl Lagerfeld said, “You cannot buy time but you can get a beautiful watch to measure time without spending a fortune.”
Pier Paolo, President of Karl Lagerfeld said, “These timepieces embody the Karl Lagerfeld aesthetic and redefine the role of watches as a true fashion accessory. This collection provides another way to experience the world of Karl”
Steve Woodward, SVP of Licensed Brands for Fossil Group said, “KARL LAGERFELD is such an incredibly powerful brand. We are thrilled and honored to work with the brand to develop a watch collection that is, just like Karl himself, completely unique in the marketplace.”
The exclusively distributed collection launched simultaneously in select stores and online in North America, Europe and Asia. Retail price points range from $150 – $595 USD. You can find the watches at various department stores or you can shop the collection online here at the Watch Station.
