‘The principle of luxury is simplicity over everything.’ Christian Dior once said. Just like the ‘Bar suit’ designed in 1947, the Lady Dior bag launched in 1995 and the ‘J’ADORE’ perfume in 1999, the new Dior VIII watch is also classic The masterpiece of couture fashion and charm, adhering to the long tradition of Dior, showing the design style of geometric figures, full of eternal charm of feminine beauty.
The ultra-thin case and its delicate accessories are simple and neat. The bracelet is made of high-precision ceramics cut in a pyramid shape, which is elegant and noble. Time passes, the light shines on the cut surface, the light shines, like the plaid line of the ‘cannage’ pattern on the Dior Lady Dior handbag, showing the beautiful design. The pyramid-shaped shape faintly lets you see the shadow of the ‘Bar suit’.
Advanced custom services are always at the forefront of the times
腕表 This watch not only displays time, but also transcends contemporary fashion trends, just like the wardrobe in a high-end uniform design interior. Mr. Dior reminds us from time to time: “Premium uniforms are always at the forefront of the times.” The elegant and attractive black of this watch highlights its immortal value through high-precision ceramics. Mr. Christian Dior wrote in his fashion dictionary published in 1954: ‘I can write a book about black. You can wear black at any age, any occasion, and at any time. In the women’s wardrobe , Everyone must have a ‘black dress’. ‘
优雅 ‘Elegance is a whole, and the visible and invisible parts are as important.’ From a technical point of view, the Dior VIII series watches are noble and exquisite jewelry. The collection was created at the Dior Watch Studio in La Chaux-de-Fonds, home of the Swiss watchmaking industry, and features multi-faceted luminous hands, diamond-shaped hands and unidirectional rotating bezels.
背面 The words ‘VIII place Vendôme’ (8 Fonteun Place) are engraved on the back of the dial. Through the transparent case back, you can see the self-winding (refining) movement, faintly visible with black or painted oscillating weight. Just as the couture uniform incorporates a sophisticated and elegant style into the lining, the Dior VIII ‘Grand Bal’ series’ pursuit of detail has reached its peak.
Watch and fine jewellery craftsmanship in one
Nevertheless, Mr. Dior’s designs are also full of evening and prom dresses, and pieces are luxurious and glamorous. In fact, he did add: ‘Black and white are sufficient, but there is no reason to deprive them of other colors.’ As a result, from the day Dior VIII was born, diamonds and precious stones were used in the Dior VIII watch collection. .
Combining the watchmaking process with the fine jewelry making process, it reminds of the hard-working seamstresses in Dior’s Haute Couture Studio. They pleated, embroidered and cut fabrics with superb craftsmanship and discreet attitude. As a result, a string of diamonds set in the center of the dial of the Dior VIII watch is like satin stitching. Some bezels are set with gemstones, some are set with pyramid-shaped high-precision ceramics with white diamonds, and all are set with baguette diamonds, topaz, tsavorite or pink sapphires.
系列 This series is limited to 88 pieces each, a total of four styles, and equipped with ‘Calibre Dior inversé’ automatic winding (refining) movement. Just like the whirling of a waltz, the swing of the oscillating weight on the dial is reminiscent of an embroidered petticoat, a lace corolla or a pleated skirt with diamonds. It perfectly combines Swiss cutting-edge technology with the rich creativity of Paris.
The “Bar” suit is the iconic design of Dior, which shows that Mr. Dior showed his love for structural lines in the first series of works in 1947. ‘I used to dream of becoming an architect, and now as a fashion designer, I will follow the principles and rules of architecture.’ This explains why this ‘new look’ is soft, narrow shoulders, waist and hips. The design of the jacket could attract the attention of everyone at the time.
Today, Dior launches the Dior VIII watch series, a tribute to Mr. Dior, a great designer. The name of the Dior VIII watch is composed of 8 letters, which is also the lucky number of the founder of Dior: Dior Design Studio was founded on October 8, 1946; his first haute couture collection was named ‘en huit’ ( The French number ‘8’); Dior Fashion headquarters is located in the world-famous Montaigne Avenue in the 8th district of Paris; and Dior’s flagship watch and jewelry boutique is also located at 8 Fontaine Square in Paris.
More importantly, on the dial of this classic and feminine watch, the Roman numeral ‘VIII’ is used to highlight the lucky time of 8 o’clock.
