Dior’s watches for women

La D de Dior watch with opal dial and diamonds

Dior is getting serious about watches. Gone are the seasonally changing straps in tune with catwalk collections that were the main attraction for its fashionable quartz timekeepers. The colours of the catwalk and fun were the name of the game chez Dior. But over the past few years Dior has changed its approach to watchmaking and more than ever, this year's collection shows a more a grown up and up-market approach to the business of timekeeping. Gone are the heavily logo-ed watches with snap-on and off straps as easy to change as a pair of shoes, and its place a collection that is positioned to be on a par with Dior's haute couture that is known for creativity underpinned by technical expertise. The families are Christal with the Swarovski crystal inserts, La D de Dior, the all round retro looking ladies's model and Le Chiffre Rouge for men. Think tourbillons, mystery movements and finely worked dials, all enhanced with the frisson of the creative powerhouse of Dior. The design styles range from Art Deco, to the traditional and quietly quirky. The materials span from turquoise to jade and iolite or lacquer. The result is a slightly an eccentric but fascinating melee, as one would expect from a couture house.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
