Press release 

Inspired by Christian Dior's taste for grand balls, the Dior VIII Grand Bal collection, launched in 2011, is equipped with the “Dior Inversé” calibre whose functional oscillating weight, placed on the dial, reproduces the swirl of a ball gown.

For princesses of a fancy dress ball, in 2012, Dior VIII is proposing a “Plume” model designed in black ceramic and white ceramic, with an openwork oscillating weight that has been elaborated with great intricacy, like a petticoat of feathers embroidered with diamonds.
