The Chanel Code Coco Electro watch, a limited edition of 255 pieces, comes as an exhilarating shock in neon pink quilted calfskin leather with black trim and lining. The distinctive cuff watch design is modeled on the iconic 2.55 handbag with its toggle-style locking clasp. The central case is divided into two black lacquered squares – one for the dial and the other set with a single princess-cut diamond.
