“True Luxury requires genuine materials and the craftsman’s sincerity,” noted Christian Dior. Since 2010, the Dior Grand Soir watches have been perpetuating the excellence of haute horlogerie. This year, the new Dior Grand Soir Kaléidiorscope takes its inspiration from delicate embroideries designed by Christian Dior for his dresses and transposes them to the wrist in a whirlwind of precious colors.

The House’s ateliers have reinvented their savoir-faire according to traditional artisanal techniques. More than one hundred and eighty metals and stones of varying nuances and forms decorate the dial with layered lightness. Each piece has been carefully shaped down to the tiniest fraction of a millimetre, before being delicately positioned and then set in a way that best catches the light.

Informed by a mastery of technique, this seemingly floating explosion of colors and lines extends onto a bezel also set with precious stones. Placed behind the «Elite 681» automatic calibre movement, the pure-wrought rotor is visible through a subtly-striped caseback that references kinetic art, one of this creation’s main inspirations.

A bracelet in denim or black satin highlights the play on materials and contrasts. This timepiece creation is offered in an edition of eight unique pieces.
