La D de Dior watches in 19mm and 42 mm versions

la mini d de Dior gold bracelet

Inspired by the 70’s, La D de Dior was born in 2003 with the tag line “A woman who decides to wear a man’s watch so that she is always thinking of him.” Its classical shape, reliable materials and movements – quartz or Zenith hand wound mechanical wowed one and all. The watch’s cheerful style, precious stones, noble and eternal metals and lacquered finish are marked by the poetic signature of Dior fine jewellery.

La D de Dior has a dual personality in its present avatar. In mini (19mm) or maxi (42mm) versions, it playfully revisits the Haute Couture taste for fairytale volumes. And when it adorns its dial with panther motifs in sapphires or diamonds and black lacquer, it does so in tribute to Mitza Bricard, Christain Dior’s elegant muse.

Dior watchmaking also draws its inspiration from the concept of refined and elegant Couture clothes being as beautiful on the inside as on the outside: such as, for example, the faces of the dials on the cases with their intricate graphic work and tinted sapphire glass that reveals the hidden luxury of the Dior Christal and Chiffre Rouge automatic movements. Price : La Mini De Dior ( steel strap with diamonds Rs 1,478k and La Mini De Dior (gold bracelet with diamonds) Rs 9,30k.
