The Grand Bal Dior – the party watch par excellence

A collection of craftsmanship that pushes horology to the highest level of splendor.

The Dior VIII Grand Bal
, the party watch par excellence, is inspired by Christian Dior’s passion for parties and dancing. Manufactured and assembled by hand, the rotor of the timepiece designed at the historic address of 30 Avenue Montaigne, Paris, features a Corolle skirt, while its yardage is made of precious stones, feathers or silk. The Dior Inversé caliber was created at the Dior ateliers at La Chaux de Fonds, in Switzerland,

“The automatic movement’s rotor is in open work form and placed in front of the dial, evoking the airy grace of a swirling ball gown. This particular complication required a total of eighteen months of research and development,” said the luxury French house.

Undergoing over two hundred individual tests, which serve to guarantee their irreproachable quality, the Dior VIII Grand Bal watches are then ready to dance on the wrists of women all over the world.
