Dior Christal 8 Fuseaux Horaires Calibre 38mm now in stores
November 5, 2013: Showcased for the first time at BaselWorld 2013, Dior’s new Dior Christal 8 Fuseaux Horaires Calibre 38mm is now available in stores.
In 2005, John Galliano and his studio visualized a luxury timepiece inspired by Haute Couture creations. The Dior Christal Collection is thus crafted with expertise, creativity and rigour. Fashioned under the direction of Galliano’s designs, the Dior Christal pieces are produced at La Chaux-de-Fonds, home to finest Swiss timepieces.
The new watch is an art deco inspired couture timepiece, a tribute to Christian Dior and his great love for art. This Dior Christal 8 comes in a jewellery version with set bezel or in a very graphic version where the circle-shaped seconds hand improvises on art deco patterns with its superimpositions on the intricately worked dial. Eight being the lucky number of Monsieur Dior, the mouldings are an expression of the neo-Louis XVI style, revisited with the engravings on the mother-of-pearl of the dial. The calibre Dior "8 Fuseaux Horaires" has the ability to simultaneously see the time in eight time zones and a direct day-night reading in these times zones.
