Posted Thursday September 27, 2012 11:50 AM GMT

They've made a name for themselves in the world of apparel and accessories, and Burberry is looking to add yet another jewel to their fashion crown.

The UK label is gearing up for the launch of The Britain, a high-end watch designed personally by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey.

Mr. Bailey gushed, “The Britain collection is something that we have been working on for a long time and, like everything at Burberry, this watch has craftsmanship at its heart but is wrapped in functionality and innovation.”

“The trench coat is the inspiration and starting point for so much of what we do at Burberry — and many aspects of The Britain nod to the trench coat in some way, from the D ring, which is reflected in the shape of The Britain, to the trench color palette, which is woven throughout the collection,” he added.

Pricing for The Britain varies widely, with the entry level model going for $1,795 while the blinged-out automatic edition is priced at $4,995.
