The Dior Grand Bal collection witnesses the arrival of a new model pairing featherworking savoir-faire, an haute couture stalwart, with horological technique – Dior Grand Bal Plume (Feather). Its automatic movement, exclusive to the house of Dior, reproduces the swirling of a ball gown, and comes in two versions: Dior Grand Bal Plume Aventurine and Dior Grand Bal Plume Malachit.
Each timepiece comes in a 36 mm case equipped with the automatic movement “Dior Inversé 11 ½” calibre, with functions of hours and minutes and a power reserve of 42 hours. The remarkable 360° functional oscillating weight placed on top of the dial is reminiscent of the swirling of a ball gown.
Dior Grand Bal Plume Aventurine cimes in steel and pink gold. Diamonds set the bezel while pink sapphires set the centre of the gorgeous blue aventurine dial. Note the oscillating weight made of real feathers! A strap in shiny blue alligator with diamond-set steel prong buckle completes this timepiece that carries a total of 137 diamonds and 83 pink sapphires. It can be yours for EUR25,000.
Dior Grand Bal Plume Malachite in steel and yellow gold, is set with 137 diamonds and 83 tsavorite garnets, this time on a malachite dial with feather oscillating weight. The matching strap is in shiny green alligator. Its price is EUR28,000.
Each version is limited to only 88 pieces.
