Created in 2004, Chiffre Rouge embodies the male universe of the House of Dior and reinterprets its graphic codes: the black (of its rubber bracelet or Nato strap, of its case or dial); the red (on the glass on the case-back or on the crown, the date, a hand or some of the pushbuttons); the asymmetry (of its case, which concentrates its controls on the widened right hand side) or even the cuts (scored into the surface of the bracelet), in reference to Dior Homme’s identity and know-how.
After the Chiffre Rouge A05 chronograph moulded in black rubber in 2012, the new A02 chronograph reinforces its watchmaking quality by incorporating the bracelet onto the revised case, and providing increased stability of the bracelet, a double face antireflection glass and a screwed-in crown. The 38mm case is made of brushed stainless steel and the case-back of translucent black sapphire crystal bearing the engraved limited edition number.
The watch houses the COSC certified automatic caliber ETA 2894.
The chronograph is worn on a black calfskin strap. A version with steel bracelet is also available.
Limited editions of 100 pieces.
