WWD notes, "It has been Lagerfeld's favorite number for so long that he said he doesn't even remember the original reason," however, it's why the designer, in conjunction with Fossil, Inc., created not one, two, three, etc, but seven watch styles to be in stores on February 28, priced from $150 to $595. Karl really likes — nay, loves — watches, saying, "I love watches as beautiful objects."
