The Dior VIII Baguette 33mm is now in stores
December 5, 2013: Continuing with its Dior VIII collection, the Dior VIII Baguette is an exceptional timepiece with a ruby set bezel.
Its rich red colour pays tribute to the codes of the house of Christian Dior and stays true to a Haute Couture inspired cocktail dress. The exclusive timepiece is engraved with sapphire crystal oscillating weights matching the colours of the baguettes.
The dial is sparely designed with faceted hour markers, and a circle of diamonds delicately sitting on the centre circle. The bezel of the timepiece is adorned with natural untreated stones. The colour of the stone expresses itself after the cut, hence more stones than needed have to be cut to obtain the colour of the watch.
To put it in a snapshot, Dior VIII Baguette is set with 50 rubies and 32 diamonds within a white gold and silver opaline dial. The red engraved sapphire crystal oscillating weight is in white gold.
