Dior Dior VIII Grand Bal Haute Couture

#wtbasel/ The Dior VIII Grand Bal collection is proposing one-of-a-kind sparkling timepieces.

Press release

DIOR VIII GRAND BAL HAUTE COUTURE

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 at the grandest of balls, in 2012 Dior VIII is proposing five one-of-a-kind timepieces in gold and black or white ceramic, embellished with precious ornamental stones in sparkling colours, demonstrating exceptional know-how.

A tribute to haute couture and its magnificence.

« Deep in every heart slumbers a dream. The couturier knows it: every woman is a princess. »

Christian Dior
