Yesterday, DiorMag brought you the new Dior VIII Montaigne watch. Today, discover the other new timepieces that the house is presenting at Baselworld.
They're called Dior VIII Grand Bal, Chiffre Rouge, Dior Grand Soir, D de Dior and the Mini D de Dior... From year to year, collection to collection, the iconic Dior timepieces are reinvented to the rhythm of the house's creativity. Though they correspond to the spirit of the time, they always remain faithful to the spirit of Dior, to its unique sense of line and color, of couture elegance and bold creativity. Now, once again, they can boast new finery, new lines, and new materials.
Thus, the Dior VIII Grand Bal watch boasts a couture skirt in silk lace on its visible frontal rotor, where a green silk thread is woven in a delicate skirt hemmed with diamonds, twirling over a black ceramic dial sprinkled with diamonds just like, on the evening of a elegant ball, the colorful dresses that twirl beneath the starry sky.
The men's collection Chiffre Rouge has added a new complications model, Chiffre Rouge C03, offered in a limited edition of one hundred pieces, and which combines a movement for the phases of the moon, big date and little second in a gray metallic mother-of-pearl dial accented with rose gold. With its masculine proportions and its sporty perforated leather strap, this new timepiece is totally in sync with the Dior Homme style, elegant but daring.
The D de Dior, a feminine and timeless watch, also expresses a new style and is set off by a gilded alligator strap, a rare and precious skin that echoes in the scales that cover the dial, embellished with a delicate gold bezel set with diamonds. The Mini D de Dior is reinvented, too. While the elegant lines of this great classic remain the same, its mirrored strap in metallic leather is set off with precious twinkles in the three colors of gold - yellow, rose and white - contrasting with the sobriety of the black mother-of-pearl dial.
Lastly, at Basel, the house is showing its unique watch pieces, jewelry masterpieces in a totally couture spirit. Taking inspiration from Christian Dior's passion for flowers, Dior VIII Grand Bal looks to the allure of the winter garden: delicately openworked, decorated with mother-of-pearl, opals and precious stones following an exceptional level of jeweler savoir-faire, the ball gown suggested by its visible rotor becomes a floral dress composed of delicate and colorful petals, as though frozen by frost on an immaculate dial of diamond pavé in a snow setting. As for the Dior Grand Soir collection, it's been enriched with new, unique pieces decked out with colorful precious gems, paying homage to the palette of Christian Dior the couturier, and revealing a rotor openworked with a level of detail and exceptionalism that could only be Dior.
