Tripped Out

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

We’ve seen em­broi­dery-in­spired di­als from Dior be­fore but this year, for their high-end col­lec­tion, that was merely the start­ing point and the creative lens was ac­tu­ally a kalei­do­scope, which adds a won­der­fully fresh and quirky twist to a fa­mil­iar theme. As al­ways, the horo­log­i­cal in­nards are pro­vided by Zenith with Dior tak­ing charge of just the as­thet­ics, from the in­spi­ra­tion to the ex­e­cu­tion to the won­der­ful denim straps. But, in the end, what that means is that the cus­tomer gets the best of both worlds. Based on the brand’s Grand Soir model, al­beit with an ex­panded dial (from 33mm to 36mm) so as to bet­ter dis­play the full ef­fect of all the speck­led jewels and pre­cious mar­quetry, just eight ‘Kalei­d­iorscope’ watches (funny name, we know) have been made, each a one-of-a-kind de­sign. Prices start from 250,000 USD.
