April 13, 2011

Dior’s Chiffre Rouge vintage comes into two colours

chiffre rouge

The asymmetrical architecture of its case that groups all its controls together on the widened right-hand side makes Chiffre Rouge unique.   Identifiable also because of its “irreductible” calibre, an exceptional automatic movement developed for Dior Homme in limited and numbered editions by the prestigious Swiss Manufacturer Zenith. Dior brings to you a 38mm chronograph for a vintage and sporty look. Adding to the earlier collection, the new vintage watch comes in two different coloured straps-Blue and Brown. These coloured dials come with elaborate matt and sun brushed subtle effects, matching with the alligator straps. With only 200 limited edition pieces worldwide, each watch has a number engraved on the case-back. Price Rs 210,000.

zenith elite captain dual

Zenith Elite Captain Dual Time associates a stream lined design and a strong identity expressing a very masculine elegance. Equipped with a GMT hand with a different design it has a blue pointer that ensures optimal readability. This hand is set using a push-piece at 10 o’clock. This mechanism makes it possible to adjust the second time zone with a simple gesture, without risking the deregulation of the time on the watch. The 40 mm watch is available in two versions with a silver or black “Clou de Paris” guilloché dial, in a steel case, with a metal bracelet or alligator-skin strap.

The watch which comes with 50hrs power reserve is inspired by the Captain line created in 1952, a leading collection of Zenith automatic watches. The watch makes clear allusions to historic timepieces—its dauphine hands, facetted with rhodium-plating and long markers that are hand-set. The manufactured movements, decorated with Côtes de Genève and circular-graining are visible through a sapphire case back. Price: Rs. 2,39,000
