The opulent white gold 38 mm case is framed by a bezel glittering with 50 round-cut diamonds totaling 2 carats. The case is crowned with white gold, delicately set with 18 round-cut diamonds totaling 0.11 carats, each adding to the watch’s luminous appeal. Below the anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass lies an onyx dial, where white gold lace details are intricately set with 74 round-cut diamonds. This design echoes the grandeur of Dior’s iconic haute couture, making the dial an homage to the codes of the magnificent maison. The polished Dauphine hands sweep over the dial, pointing delicately at the applied white gold “DIOR” logo. A sleek black satin strap and white gold buckle encrusted with 26 diamonds secure the watch with elegance and ample glamour. Inside, a Swiss-made quartz movement keeps precise time, honoring the watch’s functional purpose amid its decorative splendor. Despite its elaborate design, the watch promises durability with water resistance up to 30 meters.

Altogether, the remarkable timepiece presents a total of 168 diamonds, summing up to approximately 2.68 carats of the highest clarity (IF-VVS) and superb color (FG), ensuring that every second shines as a flash of brilliance.
