Remember that Mickey Mouse watch that you would never take off as a child? The one with Mickey's arms as the clock hands? Chanel just made a grown-up version that's to die for.

Presenting its new collection of luxury timepieces at Baselworld 2017 in Switzerland, Chanel introduced the Mademoiselle Chanel J12, which has a cute cartoon version of Coco Chanel on it. Like Mickey Mouse, Coco's arms are the hour and minute hands.

Chanel's showcase included a fresh spin on the Première watch as well as new colours for the Boy.Friend Tweed timepiece. There's also a table clock we're putting on our interiors wish-list.

The Première Camélia Skeleton
Featuring a geometric outline of the Camellia flower, Chanel's iconic emblem, the watch is both feminine and handsome all at once. Other than the one pictured below, there's another with a white face, and another with the camellia motif in black. If you're feeling a bit fancier, there's a version with diamonds on the buckle.

The Mademoiselle Privé Aubazine Décor
The sparkly Mademoiselle Privé Aubazine Décor pays homage to Gabrielle Chanel's Aubazine abbey, where she spent a part of her childhood, with its refined pattern and gem-encrusted dial. Baguette cut diamonds were meticulously selected and specifically re-cut to fit the designs and the result is this white gold beauty you can't say no to.

The Boy.Friend Tweed
To complement all the looks you stole from the boys, the maison has added gold and black options to the beloved Boy.Friend Tweed watch. Wear gold for wedding dinners, black for an important meeting.

Monsieur de Chanel Calibre 1
With its design based off the first Monsieur de Chanel watch model (and the house's first watch dedicated to men) that was unveiled last year, the new edition features a round platinum case with a black enamel dial.

The Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel Table Clock
The original Chanel clock has a dial decorated with a motif inspired by the lacquered screens found in Gabrielle Chanel's apartment. Consider it your foolproof conversation starter.
