A new model, resulting from the encounter between traditional Haute Couture know-how and watchmaking technology, comes to complete the Dior VIII Grand Bal collection. A great festive season gift for the special ladies in your life ! The Dior VIII Grand Bal “FIL D’OR” 38MM is made in limited edition of 88 pieces. This Dior gold and black watch is perfect for a medium to large wrist size.
Gold is at the heart of the Dior identity. Dior, a name that includes Dieu (God) and Or (gold), the Dior VIII Grand Bal “Fil d’or” pays a refined, elegant and subtle homage to the magical and much coveted material – gold.
Like a House of Dior signature, gold thread is given pride of place and, thanks to the dextrous fingers of a lady lace-maker from Le Puy-en-Velay, decorates an oscillating weight trimmed with diamonds and gold.
Proposed in pink gold and black ceramic, the Dior VIII Grand Bal “Fil d’or” is equipped with an automatic movement exclusive to the House of Dior, the “Dior Inversé 11 1/2” calibre, featuring a functional oscillating weight placed on top of the dial recalling the swirl of a ball gown.
Dedicated to creation, an audacious dialogue between jewellery and watchmaking know-how, and the art of lace making, the watch carries an extremely delicate weave on a tungsten frame. With no less than 1.5 meters of thread, the oscillating weight is embellished with 95 diamonds, mirroring embroidery on a gold petticoat.
