Karl Lagerfeld creating watches

Karl Lagerfeld is set to launch a line of watches.

The designer has teamed up with watch company Fossil Inc. to create an exclusive line of original timepieces.

The range will feature designs for both men and women and will be distributed under the Karl Lagerfeld label.

"We look forward to working with Karl Lagerfeld," said Mark Quick, Vice Chairman for Fossil, Inc. "It is a pleasure to work with such an inspiring fashion visionary."

Karl is best known for his clothing designs for high fashion labels Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous label.

The whole team behind the Karl Lagerfeld label is excited about branching out into watches.

"It is essential for us to work with the best license partners in each segment - that is why we are happy to partner up with Fossil," said president of the Karl Lagerfeld label Pier Paolo Righi.

The first collection is scheduled to launch in Spring 2013.

The announcement comes just days after the German designer revealed he would be working on a new affordable womenswear collection called Karl. This new range for the everyday woman is available exclusively through Net-A-Porter in the New Year.
