Dior Christal Watch With Patent Leather Strap
Ah yes, just what the world needed more of - patent leather. Ahem, no. I mean patent calfskin leather. The softest leather, for the softest vinyl-like finish. Patent leather is funny because it looks cool on shoes for graduating marines, and hot chicks in questionably themed night clubs. It just has that many purposes... that many personalities.
Dior watches will not be using patent calfskin leather in their new Christal watch collection that hearkens back to a Kennedy era age. JFK, Kennedy that is. Jackie O would have more than likely swooned over this piece with its fascinating asymmetrical design that looks chic, and is actually loosely based on a diver's watch. The markers on the bezel get further apart proportionally, akin the unfolding of a natural spiral. The rest of the watch is pretty much at home in the Christal family. With plenty of diamond decoration, and the usual afterglow of Dior pretentiousness. Nevertheless, nice watches, and that is all we know until Dior graces us with more details.
