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.

Dior’s Chiffre Rouge T01 (42mm) is a complication which renews the design of the Chiffre Rouge whilst respecting its DNA. This movement is the only one which can give time in both 12hour  and 24hour clock with just one index  the innovation is protected with a patent. This complication enables a direct day-night reading for the eight time zones. The correction of the time and the time zones is done with a single crown while most of the multi times movement are done with two crowns.  The movement was developed to have an animated dial, always in motion because, along with the minutes and seconds hands, the dial-back is rotating, each twelve hours the dial returns to its initial position and the 8 time zones plate completes a full tour in 24 hours. The dial features the “piquéde cotton” pattern, dear to the brand and characteristic of the tuxedo shirts. Available in 100 piece limited edition. Price: Rs 3,50 k.
