The number eight has featured in many special events in the history of Christian Dior.
The Dior VIII collection pays tribute to the couture house’s historical address in the eighth arrondissement of Paris, which opened on 8 October 1976 with the first range of watches, named En Huit, meaning 'In Eight'.
The watches themselves are designed in elegant grey steel with accents of pink and pale blue: Christian Dior’s favourite colours. The watches have been slimmed down to give a more feminine take, with 25mm, 32mm and 36mm versions, all delicately adorned.
Inspired by Parisian luxury, the watches are embellished with diamonds and white mother-of-pearl, making them the perfect combination of timepiece and jewellery.
