There’s nothing more elegant than an artfully-designed luxury wristwatch. In fact, we would even risk a bad pun to claim it’s timeless. But the newest launch of Dior watches will still absolutely blow you away. The designer brand has debuted two dazzling new lines, featuring two specific timepieces that have really caught our attention. So we just had to share.
First up, there’s the Dior Grand Bal Plume, an emerald green slice of magic from the new Grand Bal line.
“A ball gown is your dream, and it must make you a dream,” according to Monsieur Dior. And in answer to that comes the 'Dior Grand Bal Plume' watch, featuring the unique Dior inversé oscillating weight exquisitely tricked out with 25 tiny hand-set feathers to reproduce the swish of a ball gown at a party that never ends! #DiorHorlogerie
“Inspired by Christian Dior’s taste for extravagant society balls, the highly limited-edition ‘Dior Grand Bal Plume’ watch marks the perfect fusion of couture savoir-faire and Swiss watchmaking excellence,” the brand shared on Instagram. “It takes 3 days to prepare and carefully attach the 25 white feathers to the signature patented Dior oscillating weight. Against a background of a swirling green malachite dial – symbolizing protection and good luck – and a glossy green alligator bracelet, they swish and flutter inside their steel case’s diamond-dotted bezel.”
This collection is defined by bright color and opulence. You can se why we’re obsessed.
Then there is the La D de Dior Satine, designed by Victoire de Castellane for the La D line.
La Mini D de Dior Rose des Vents watch, designed by @VictoiredeCastellane and inspired by the Rose des Vents jewelry collection, takes the wind rose and transforms it from an indicator of direction into a teller of time. A black satin strap subtly offsets the profusion of fine jewelry and watchmaking perfection, as the diamond-set crown and stainless steel rice grain bezel frame the telltale star on a dial of malachite or white or pink mother-of-pearl.⠀ #DiorJoaillerie
“Mimicking a satin ribbon, its signature supple metal mesh bracelet is the result of extensive research and development, and with its diamond-studded bezel, crown and buckle it represents a flawless fusion of Dior fine jewelry and Swiss watchmaking savoir-faire,” the brand shared about this ladylike design.
Of course, these aren’t the only two masterpieces making up the latest accessories line.
