In a return to Watches and Wonders at the beginning of the year, Chanel launched the Interstellar Capsule Collection using motifs from the worlds of science fiction, space, and time travel. Presenting several new interpretations of the brand’s J12, Première, Boy-Friend and Code Coco watches, each model encourages playful interpretations of science-inspired themes.

The leading watch, the J12 Hyper Cybernetic, features a contrasting pixelated graphic pattern on the case, 18K white gold and black ceramic bezel, and dial. Each pixel tile is studded with brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of 240 gems (approximately 1.30 carats). At the heart of the Chanel J12 Hyper Cybernetic is the caliber 12.1 self-winding movement. The watch is limited to 55 models with pricing available upon request.

Offering a more subdued version than its predecessor, the J12 Cybernetic features white glossy finishes that create a pixelated pattern across the case, bezel, and dial. Also equipped with the caliber 12.1, the Chanel J12 Cybernetic is a limited edition priced at $13,900, although the brand has not specified how many models will be produced.

Taking a monochromatic approach to the capsule is the J12 Interstellar, which uses a 38mm black ceramic and steel case along with a matching black dial. The display has a sparkling surface embellished with six diamonds, while the seconds hand has a comet-inspired star at one end of it. The Chanel J12 Interstellar is a limited edition priced at $9,600, although the brand has not specified how many models it will produce.

Rounding out the new updates to the J12 collection is the J12 Cosmic, a white monochrome version with a 33mm ceramic and steel finish. Cosmic motifs are once again revealed through the luminescent dial sparklingly decorated with 12 diamonds. The limited edition Chanel J12 Cosmic retails for $7,700, although the brand hasn’t specified how many models it will produce.

The Première Hyper Lucky Star has an elegant white gold case with svelte dimensions of 19.7 x 15.2 x 7.5mm. Its dial and bracelet are completely set with diamonds, and an 18K white gold comet-shaped charm adorns the case at the 3 to 6 o’clock position, also set with diamonds. Chanel Premiere Hyper Lucky Star is limited to 55 pieces with pricing available upon request.

In contrast to the previous version, the Première Lucky Star has a black lacquer dial with a diamond-encrusted steel case. Fitted with a black rubber strap, this watch also features a diamond-encrusted comet logo on the side of the case. The Chanel Premiere Lucky Star is a limited edition retailing for $8,300, although the brand has not specified how many models it will produce.

Marking a particularly playful shape in both the Interstellar Capsule and Première collections is the Première Robot, with its golden yellow, ceramic, black titanium and 3D onyx and diamond sculpture of the robot on the outside. The watch has a black lacquer dial and comes with a black rubber strap with velvet trim. Powered by a quartz movement, the limited edition Chanel Première Robot retails for $25,300, although the brand has not specified how many models it will produce.

The Boyfriend Cyberdata watch features a circuit board pattern on the dial with a black background and diamond accents throughout. The steel case measures 34.6 x 26.7 x 7.3mm and is presented on a black quilted patent leather bracelet. At the heart of the Chanel Boyfriend Cyberdata is a highly functional quartz movement. The watch is a limited edition retailing for $9,050.

Rounding out the main models in the capsule collection is the Code Coco Cybergold. The watch itself has a steel case and bezel with black coating that sits inside a yellow quilted leather bracelet that boldly embodies the six letters of the Chanel logo. The watch has two black lacquered dials, one with hour and minute hands and the other with diamonds. Chanel Code Coco Cybergold is a limited edition priced at 9,200 USD.
