Dior’s Dior VIII watch series is designed to pay tribute to Mr. Dior, a great designer.
The name of the Dior VIII watch is composed of 8 letters, which is also the lucky number of the founder of Dior: Dior Fashion Design was created on October 8, 1946; his first haute couture collection was named “en huit ‘(Ie, the number’ 8 ‘in French); Dior’s fashion headquarters is located in the world-famous Avenue Montaigne in the 8th district of Paris; Dior’s flagship watch and jewelry boutique is also located in Paris 8 Place Vendôme Vendôme Square 8. More importantly, on this classic and feminine watch dial, the Roman numeral ‘VIII’ is used to highlight the lucky time of 8 o’clock.

Just as the haute couture uniform incorporates sophisticated elegance into the lining, the Dior VIII Grand Bal watch’s pursuit of detail has reached a pinnacle. Each of the series is limited to 88 pieces in four styles and is equipped with a ‘Calibre Dior inversé’ automatic movement. Just like the whirling of a waltz, the swing of the oscillating weight on the dial is reminiscent of an embroidered petticoat, a lace corolla or a pleated skirt with diamonds, which perfectly combines the cutting-edge Swiss technology with the rich creativity of Paris.
