DIOR VIII BAGUETTE DALLAS SPECIAL EDITION
33mm automatic – White gold, white ceramic and sapphires

In tribute to Christian Dior’s taste for colour, the Dior VIII Baguette collection is enriched with a new jewel-timepiece, in white ceramic. The bezel is set with blue colour-shaded baguettes, subtly inspired by the pleats on cocktail dresses. With its exceptional work and research into the size and setting of the stones, this timepiece is as refined on the inside as on the outside, revealing a mother-of-pearl oscillating weight hand-painted by a miniaturist and matching the colour of the stones on the bezel.

“White is pure and simple and matches with everything.”

An omnipresent colour in the couture house, it evokes the “toile”, the cotton canvas prototype the ateliers use to interpret the couturier’s sketch – a toile cut out, darted and folded over the house model that is metamorphosed into elegant lines, volumes, shadows and light. Then appear the beginnings of a dress… Dior Timepieces are reviving the two founding colours of Dior style.
