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 their first ball, in 2012, Dior VIII is proposing a “Résille” model designed in black ceramic and white ceramic, with an openwork oscillating weight that has been elaborated with great intricacy, like mesh embroidered with diamonds. A tribute to Haute Couture and its refinement.

“Deep in every heart slumbers a dream. The couturier knows it: each woman is a princess.”
Christian Dior
