For the last few years, brand Dior has been sneaking out watch releases into our closets. The latest are two new styles from the Christal watch line that crave for your appreciation. Referred to as the Christal 42mm Automatic (yep, we do realise that this isn’t too creative), the two watches have been designed so as to marry the modern sporty dive style with art deco.
No prizes for guessing the size of the case. It is 42mm wide! Black sapphires on the bracelet have been shaped after the pyramid. At this, the fashion house has given two different style options. Black lacquer donns the dial while the pyramid theme is continued in the center. The diamonds make a weave pattern all along the middle. Frankly, we liked the design case better and the bracelet much better than the dial, which looks a tad too cluttered.
The hours have been marked in Arabic numerals (now, that might be a bit of a trouble for some to get accustomed to). The mechanism is SWiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement which can be seen at its busiest best through the sapphire crystal caseback window.
