Christian Dior Christal CD112113M001
From the Christal collection Christian Dior delivers demure excellence with this magnificent timepiece for women. Christian Dior is a huge name in fashion and the designers combine their eye for what’s how with Swiss savoir faire making for these superb, multi-purpose watches. There is no list of watchmakers that is complete without the inclusion of Christian Dior.
This Christian Dior timepiece is powered by a Swiss made quartz movement which is chosen due to its precision. The quartz movement features a typical three hand display format of hours, minutes, and seconds. The main crown is of the push/pull variety and pulls out to only one position to adjust the time. The water resistance on this model stands at 50 meters (165 feet) making this a perfect watch to wear on a daily basis.
The case material is polished stainless steel which is hypoallergenic making it suitable for all skin types. The dimensions come in at 38mm for the diameter (slightly large for women) and it carries an 8mm case height which is quite flat. The bezel is unidirectional and features graduated white sapphires and a double row of crystal clear diamonds. The diamonds are all faceted which adds a measure of sparkle to this gorgeous timepiece. The bracelet is a standard three-piece version with short links designed to contour around the wrist providing exceptional comfort. The bracelet is also crafted from stainless steel and is set with white sapphire crystals. This timepiece is outfitted with a double deployant clasp with a dual push button release system. This watch is made to fit a 6.5 inch wrist and it is completely adjustable.
The crystal over the dial is also crafted from sapphire which has become the industry standard for scratch resistance. Sapphire ranks a 9 on the MOHs scare and is only second to diamond. What this means is that the dial window can only be scratched by another sapphire of a diamond. The white dial features flattened applied Arabic numerals at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 positions, and indexes as the remaining hour markers. Lume is places on both the hour and minute hands ensuring legibility during low light conditions.
