A watch has twelve digits on it and the hand goes to each and everyone of those digits. But here is something interesting. Dior has brought out a special edition this month dedicated specially to the number eight. No they are not being partial or anything, its just that eight is considered an auspicious number is the Chinese culture and is also supposed to be the lucky number of couturier.
Christened Christal 8, the collection has two designs that are available in gold and lacquer Art Deco styling and a mother-of-pearl design. Only eight pieces will be available for the gold model while the latter will have about hundred pieces. It displays three things on the same index: local time, time in eight cities worldwide and day/night. The movement has been designed by Orny and Girardin. The mother of pearl design works on this movement but has engraved moldings, golden finishes and a bezel full set with diamonds.
Both the models are resistant upto 50 metres. Now to the pricing. The Art Deco model is priced at 450,000 HKD whereas the mother-of-pearl model will push you back by 141,800 HKD. I wish I could spend so much money cause I absolutely love the dial.
