A bejeweled beauty from the House of Dior

We love Dior VIII Montaigne with its pink gold, here’s why.

Dior gives all you ladies yet another accessory to flaunt, this time it's a timepiece in pink gold. The new Dior VIII Montaigne is sophisticated, feminine and has just the right amount of bling that your wrist needs.

8 is a magical number for Christian Dior, evoking in turn the 8th of October 1946, day of the opening of his Couture House; his address Avenue Montaigne, in the VIIIth arrondissement of Paris and “En Huit” (In Eight), the name of his first collection. So it was natural that the first ceramic timepiece imagined by Dior received, in addition to the name of the creator, those four simple and obvious characters: VIII. With Dior VIII Montaigne, Dior not only pays tribute to the House’s historical address and to Parisian luxury but also pushes inspiration even further while faithfully returning to the basic colours in the Christian Dior palette.

Just 25mm in diameter, this extremely sleek watch comes with a delicate placement of diamonds on its pink-gold bezel. A stylish black alligator case and the anti reflective sapphire crystal glass contributes all the more to its elegant look. The swiss made beauty comes with an alligator strap (made from the prized Louisiana alligator skin) with the leather turned under the lining without seams, for an elegant and effeminate finishing.  The slenderized horns, the slimmed down case and alligator straps discreetly renew this timekeeper’s couture spirit. In 2014, pink gold is the VIP guest in the Dior VIII Montaigne line which has a single hem of diamonds in the dial, complemented with a ring of diamonds around the bezel. The watch carries an intriguing interplay between the beautiful white mother-of-pearl dial and diamonds. The watch also has a “VIII” indicating the 8 on the dial, with faceted hour and minute hands.

This new expression of femininity is an ultimate gift for the woman of today and is perfectly in sync with the upcoming festive season in case you are planning to indulge in some luxe buys.
