Ten stunning jewelry watches with dial-side rotors, feathers, and various stones.
There are regular jewelry watches – think gem-set dials or bezels – and jewelry watches designed and build from the ground up with the idea of being a piece of playful jewelry art in their own right. And these 10 one-of-a-kind stunning pieces by Dior featuring surprising precious and natural materials surely fall in the second category. The dials are made of opals sparkling with all the colors of the rainbow. A golden circle dominates the center of the dial with the functional oscillating weight, spinning around it.
The Dior Grand Bal Supernatural are powered by an automatic Dior Inversé 11 1⁄2 calibre, exclusive to the maison. The rotor itself symbolizes the swirl of a ball gown and is meticulously decorated with wild feathers and diamonds. The bezel is adorned with baguette-cut precious coloured stones: blue, pink and violet sapphires or green tsavorites. The rim of the bezel and the gold crown are also set with diamonds. The sapphire crystal case-back is embellished with butterfly wings. A shiny black alligator strap adds up to the overall image.
