Rainbow Timing

The house of Dior brings us this stunning piece called “La D de Dior Colour”. It took Dior two years to make this exceptional, unique timepiece with its prismatic array of more than 800 gemstones resembling a rainbow.

This is true haute couture for a ladies wrist and the specifications are impressive as well. Its case is in white gold (750/1000 palladium 210 white gold) and crown is also in white gold with diamonds. The bezel & dial are again in white gold with paraiba tourmalines, emeralds, tsavorite garnets, spessartite garnets, spinels, rubies, amethysts, sapphires, pink, purple and yellow sapphires. The hands are polished dauphine hands in white gold which the bracelet is Black satin with buckle in white gold set with diamonds. The movement is Zenith Elite 631, manual-winding and the watch is water resistant upto 30 meter (but who will be going underwater wearing this watch?!?)

There are 195 diamonds with 1.56 carat, 59 paraiba tourmalines with 0.50 carat, 59 emeralds with 0.45 carat, 58 tsavorite garnets with 0.73 carat, 76 spessartite garnets with 0.85 carat, 52 spinels with 0.49 carat, 45 rubies with 0.48 carat, 53 amethysts with 0.39 carat, 93 sapphires with 1.14 carat, 70 pink sapphires with 0.82 carat, 20 purple sapphires with 0.26 carat, 58 yellow sapphires with 0.64 carat.

Price of the Dior watch? Approximately £ 250,000. Not your style? Maybe you may like this Rolex "Daytona Rainbow" watch.

This is a 18ct yellow gold 40 mm case and braclet watch. It dons a bezel entirely set with an array of sapphires in rainbow colours. Also gem-set, the case lugs, crown gaurd as well as the hour markers on the dial participate in the exquisite allure of this variation on the Daytona theme.
