On the occasion of the Baselworld international watch fair, the House presents its new Dior Grand Soir collection, composed of eight unique flower-inspired pieces.
Heirs to Christian Dior's love of plants, these watch creations turn the spotlight on flowers that seem to be growing under the glass, prompting a shifting of the usually centered hands. Their dials, adorned with precious stones of various shapes and sizes, mother-of-pearl, opals and polished gold elements, testify to an exceptional jewelry savoir-faire.
The white gold cases covered in a pavé of snow-set round diamonds provide a precious frame for these unique flowers that attach to the wrist with a bracelet of midnight blue fabric. Faultlessly considered right down to their mechanism, these watches feature a quartz movement with adjustment corrector. The dial of a Dior Grand Soir Botanic with an off-center movement at eight o'clock features blue, pink and yellow sapphires, emeralds, diamonds and rubies that evoke the falling of evening light. A more morning piece has its off-center movement at two o'clock, and its flower adorned with pale sapphires, intense sapphires, emeralds, pink sapphires, diamonds and rubies.
