Originally debuted in 2004, Dior Homme‘s Chiffre Rouge encapsulates the luxury label’s vision of the male universe. The exquisite timepiece style reflects decades of the tailoring know-how and the Dior identity, with even the minutest details. The 2015 version of this everlasting work—a beautiful 38mm automatic, Elite 682 calibre by Zenith—offers its first small complication with the second time zone, whose hand is adjustable by the pushbutton, and two others: the date, which appears in red in a window at 3 o’ clock, and a small second now in its very own dial at 9 o’ clock. The perforated black leather strap augments a sense of refined masculinity that the fashion house identifies with, and is presented against the clean yet intricate brushed stainless steel face.
