In March, 2010, Dior initiated the partnership with highly qualified designers Orny and Girardin in order to develop and manufacture the first Dior 8 Fuseaux Horaires calibre.
A delightfully surprising innovation, this movement enables the watch owner to read three items of information on one and the same index: local time, time in eight time zones worldwide, as well as day and night indications. The mechanism contains an oscillating weight inlaid with a gold leaf.
This exclusive caliber is housed in an alluring yellow gold case, which measures 38 mm in diameter. It sports a bezel fitted with a black sapphire crystal insert. The case of the new Christal 8 watch reveals a crown, also set with a sapphire crystal insert.
The esteemed specialists have given its latest creation a head-turning sapphire crystal case-back, embellished with metallization. The water-resistance of the timepiece is ensured to 50 meters.
The case is complimented by a red coral and ivory dial lacquered with mother-of-pearl and gold leaf. The display comprises an 8 time zones satellite, equipped with an hour indicator. The dial is also completed with golden minute and black circular second hands.
Keeping the new Dior watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a black python leather strap. It terminates in a yellow gold ardillon buckle, fitted with a black sapphire crystal insert.
