French luxury brand Dior has released three new additions to its VIII Grand Bal “Plissé Soleil”collection.

The new models come in 36mm cases and are equipped with a self-winding movement, the Dior Inversé 11 1/2 caliber, which is exclusive the brand. The mechanism’s functional oscillating weight, in gold, mother-of-pearl, and diamonds, is visible on the dial and reveals an exquisite, eye-catching sun pleat pattern.

The first watch is a steel and mother-of-pearl piece which comes in a stainless-steel case and bezel and is adorned with a mother-of-pearl ring. It is available in two versions, either with a steel bracelet made up of the collection’s signature pyramid-shaped links, or with a blue alligator strap, and is a limited edition of 888 pieces.

The second timepiece comes in a similar stainless-steel case and bezel with the addition of diamonds to the mother-of-pearl ring. Also available in two versions (steel bracelet with pyramid links and blue alligator leather), it was released as a limited edition of 188 pieces.

Finally, the release’s most exclusive watch comes in a pink gold case with a diamond-set bezel and crown. Here two there’s a choice to be made, this time between a pink gold bracelet with pyramidal links and a black alligator leather strap. Only 88 of these timepieces are available.
