Watch brands garner their inspiration from all walks of life, but for women’s watches, one of them most important influences comes from the of haute couture and fashion. Top designers of the world unveil sumptuous and intriguing fashions decade after decade, with stunning looks walking the runway every season. Thus, it makes sense that top luxury designer watch brands follow suit. Dior is one brand that regularly offers incredible timepieces and today we bring you a look at five fabulous Dior watches that are perfect for celebrating the New Year.
Watches in the La D de Dior Satine Collection are offered in shimmering steel, rose gold and other finishes and set with diamonds.
This Haute Couture House is one that totally understands style and elegance – and much of the look from the Parisian legend is reinterpreted in the distinctive timepieces. Dior Timepieces is constantly creating new and exciting watches. Every watch is expertly conceived of, sketched, and planned before the design is passed on to the brand’s expert Swiss watchmakers to bring them to fruition.
Some of the brand’s all-time “bests” include the Dior VIII—a collection that reflects the brand’s haute couture history and current-day haute horlogerie. The numeral eight recalls Monsieur Dior’s lucky number; it reflects important dates in the brand’s history (the House was created on October 8, 1946), it reflects an address.
The various series are inspired by the codes of the House: the architecture, the swirl of a ballroom gown, and more – ethereal, surreal, real. Within the Dior VIII line is the Grand Bal and Avenue Montaigne collections. The Grand Bal utilizes the brand’s innovative Dior inverted caliber decorated with feathers or gemstones. More recent editions of the collection include motifs that emulate the flow of a gown with ruffles and pleats.
Metallics are an important theme this season, as well, and the brand delivers – especially n the La D de Dior round Satine collection, with several sizes ranging from midsize to the mini. In fact, Dior epitomizes ‘‘Swiss made’’ Parisian watches – making them one of the most coveted and sought-after watch brands in the world of haute couture.
