The latest edition of the Chanel Boy.Friend watch will have you all aflutter

A worthy significant other is a hard thing to find but Chanel knows just how to impress a girl. Showing off a new handsomely dressed Boy.Friend timepiece, the maison is working their French charm to its full effect.

A feminine silhouette of a masculine persuasion, the Boy.Friend is no stranger to the overwhelming attention from women since its debut. Sharply outfitted in a steel case this season, its rectangular frame is subtly detailed with faceted edges that gleam reflectively against a new timeless black guilloché dial. Featuring a medium and small sized variation to suit even the most delicate of wrists, a date counter graces the watch face of the former while the latter is paved with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds along its bezel.

Topped by a steel crown studded with a black spinel cabochon and complemented by black alligator leather straps, the updated Boy.Friend is eagerly lining up to be your new favourite beau. With its high-precision quartz movement and ability to resist water up to 30 metres, you can take your Boy.Friend out anywhere, everywhere and know that you'll be the envy of every other lady.

The Boy.Friend Steel is available at Chanel boutiques from April.
