Paying tribute to Christian Dior’s passion for elaborate balls, the Dior Grand Bal watches contain an automatic movement exclusive to the House, with its oscillating weight mimicking a twirling gown. This season, they are enriched with a new creation, the Dior Grand Bal Plume Or, in an unprecedented 36mm format. Combining the lightness of a feather with the preciousness of gold, this model, with its sun-brushed gold dial, is worked with the utmost delicacy, like an embroidered skirt, and demands the same savoir-faire as an item of haute couture.
For the new pieces baptized Dior Grand Bal Jardins Imaginaires, the House’s artisans succeeded in pushing the limits of their ingenuity. Inspired by the magic and the mystery of nature, their oscillating weight and dial evoke luxuriant flora and fauna, giving a nod to the founding couturier’s love of gardens. Combining rose, white and yellow gold, diamonds, rubies and sugilite, the 36mm Dior Grand Bal Pièce Unique Jardins Imaginaires N°6 is decorated with butterfly wings and feathers, and set off by an alligator-faced black satin strap.
None new watches, echoing the inherent splendor of fireworks, complete the Dior Grand Soir collection. Their dials are lit up like bright bouquets. The Dior Grand Soir Feux d’Artifice N°5, in a glossy black lacquer and embellished with a blue heart set with diamonds and sapphires, and rose and white gold elements as well as feathers, is an invitation to wondrous evening extravaganzas. Exceptional down to its mechanism, this watch possesses a regulator quartz movement and off-center hands at the ten o’clock mark.
