Not just another shiny object – this Dior collection gives the illusion of an exquisite botanical garden coming alive

A fairy-tale garden blossom in the Dior Grand Soir Botanic collection where the spotlight is on flowers and plants that seem to be growing under the glass. Unveilved at Baselworld 2017, each of the eight timepieces from this collection draws on Monsieur Dior's love of flowers.

Enchanting and aesthetically wonderful, the off-centre hands give us a peek at the blossoming flora in the dials. The Dior Grand Soir Botanic timepieces feature a detailed gem-setting with the flower dials are adorned with precious stones of various shapes and sizes, mother-of-pearl, opals and polished gold elements.

The one-of-a-kind watches are also embellished with a snow-set round of diamonds on the white gold cases that beautifully frame up the unique flower dials. The Dior Grand Soir Botanic collection is equipped with a quartz movement and polished gold case-backs while the strap of choice in midnight blue fabric is designed with undulating lines. 


What a beauty isn't it? The limited edition timepieces can be had from €220,000 onwards.
