Today we’re taking a close up look at Dior’s latest collaboration with Zenith. The Chiffre Rouge C03 fuses high fashion and haute horlogerie, with an automatic Elite 691 calibre movement by Zenith at its heart.
Housed in a 38mm brushed stainless steel case, this timepiece does not rest on the laurels of its looks. The black lacquered dial features matte black timers, big date at 1 o’clock, small second counter at 9 o’clock, openwork hour and minute hands, and a moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock. The case features a screwed crown with a guilloché pattern and a red lacquered circle, a setting button for the moon phase at 8 o’clock and a translucent black sapphire crystal caseback. black lacquered oscillating weight engraved with “Dior Homme Calibre Zenith 691″, 50-hour power reserve.
This timepiece is completed by a handmade semi-matte black alligator strap with a brushed stainless steel prong buckle engraved with “Dior Homme”.
The Chiffre Rouge C03 Moonphase will be limited to an edition of just 100 pieces.
