Not content with launching her own successful fashion brand, Jessica Jung has turned her hand to the luxury watch market and partnered up with the Marvella Group to announced a major joint venture — and an $18,000 watch!
Jung’s fashion brand Blanc & Eclare — alongside rumoured beau Tyler Kwon‘s company The Coridel Group — joined forces with the Marvella Group to work on a range of impressive wristpieces.
A statement reads, “Marvella Group announces a collaboration with The Coridel Group and its global fashion brand Blanc & Eclare, launching a crossover collection and expanding to various global fashion markets.”
The Paris headquartered company added, “Founder and Creative Director of Blanc & Eclare, Jessica Jung, designed a series of watches and jewelry sets to launch in late 2015.”
First of the diamond-studded pieces to be revealed is the limited edition “Style J” ladies’ watch, priced at approximately $18,000. The timepiece boasts a total of 949 white diamonds around the face and beneath the sapphire glass in the shape of intricate bees and flowers, totalling 4.53 carats. A letter J (presumably for Jessica!) sits in the centre of the face.
Only 100 of the watches — which has a sky blue alligator leather straps with diamond buckle — have been made and it uses Swiss-made precision mechanics for perfect time-keeping.
