Launched in 2004, Dior's Chiffre Rouge watch range was an emblem of excellence dedicated to the graphic codes of Dior Homme. It drew inspiration from the precision that goes into every Dior Homme collection — look closer at the range's bracelets and you will see incisions that echo its sharp tailoring — and its name sports intertwined letters, much like a family crest.
The 2015 addition is an automatic watch with the range's first complication. Powered by the Elite 682 movement by Zenith manufacture, a second timezone can be displayed by pressing on a push-button at the 10 o'clock position. Two other complications are included on the Chiffre Rouge C05 as well: The date, which appears in a window at the 3 o'clock position, and a small display that counts the seconds in its very own dial at 9 o'clock. The range's sleek, asymmetrical case and classic, masculine shape are a nod to previous incarnations and show off the masculinity of the watch in an unassuming manner. Limited to only 100 pieces worldwide, the Dior Chiffre Rouge C05 GMT is a masterpiece of watchmaking and style.
