Dior Reveals New Fireworks-Inspired Grand Soir Watches


April 2, 2018 | BY AFP

The festive-looking collection pays tribute to Christian Dior's taste for parties and festivals.

Dior has revealed nine new Grand Soir watches. These unique creations are inspired by the enchanting and festive nature of fireworks, captured with gold, diamonds, sapphires, aventurine and feathers.

The watches in the collection are characterised by an enchanting explosion of colour, precious stones and light, festive colours and illuminations that light up the watch dials, as well as their 36mm cases and black patent calfskin straps, featuring a fade-out of silver sparkles.

Dior's Grand Soir Feux d'Artifice watches have white or rose gold cases paved with round snow-set diamonds and, for some versions, round sapphires. The dial is finished in glossy black lacquer, contrasted with bursts of different colours, depending on the model. Indeed, each model features a variety of precious stones (diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, pink sapphires and tsavorite garnet) and couture details (feathers).

These unique pieces have a quartz movement with adjustment corrector. They have hours and minutes hands, often set off-centre, and are water-resistant to 50m. Aventurine hand-engraved with gold brings a final precious touch to the caseback.
