2017's Baselworld watches and jewellery show saw Dior debuting its latest watches alongside replicas of their most iconic haute couture creations. Showcased amongst a host of miniature gowns designed by the company throughout the 20th century, each timepiece boasts distinctive elements of Dior’s brand.

Dior-VIII-Montaigne-Watch

The New Dior VIII Montaigne 2017 Spring-Summer Edition

The new Dior VIII Montaigne 2017 Spring-Summer edition celebrates the first ready-to-wear show under the helm of Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior's recently appointed Artistic Director. The wide silvery-white opaline dial is hemmed with diamonds, complete with a perforated white calfskin strap – a sophisticated take on wearable elegance for today’s busy woman.

Dior-Grande-Bal-Pièce-Unique-Galaxie

The Dior Grande Bal Pièce Unique Galaxie

Under the masterful eye of Victoire de Castallane, Creative Director of Dior’s fine jewellery division, other designs bring a distinct theme to the timepiece portfolio. The Dior Grand Bal harks back to Monsieur Dior’s personal superstition – the “lucky star” that would define his destiny. His fascination with stars and constellations is portrayed as an entire galaxy in the watch’s dial, complete with a shimmering opal sky and a golden pleated drape.

Dior-Grand-Soir-Collection

One of only eight models from Dior's Grand Soir Collection

Continuing with this theme of Monsieur Dior’s own passions, the Dior Grand Soir collection unveils only eight one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by a fairy-tale garden. The flowers are displayed through the use of precious gems, mother-of-pearl, opal and a shimmering diamond surround, complete with a midnight blue fabric strap.

La-Mini-D-Dior-Wraparound

Dior's La Mini D Dior Wraparound Watch

The playful look of La Mini D Dior Wraparound is invoked by the brightly coloured straps that loop around the wearer’s wrist. Available in two new versions, the patent leather is complemented by a lacquered dial of the same colour, with a diamond-set crown, bezel and buckle.

With a range of statement, whimsical and fun choices available, Dior watches are a must-have for any fashion fan.
