Earlier this year WatchPro unveiled its Watches of the Year 2012 – the 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Highly commended for WatchPro Showstopping Watch of the Year 2012 was the Dior La Mini D De Dior.
This 19mm white gold timepiece by Dior is part of a range designed by its just as colourful creative director Victoire de Castellane and is a tropical-coloured triumph.
There are three new versions of La Mini D de Dior, adorned with snow-set brightly coloured gemstone dials, contrasted by myriad lizard straps and set with more than 200 gemstones.
This version, with pink sapphires and rare Paraiba tourmalines might have a quartz movement but it is still a stunner and sure to turn heads.
Castellane has made sure that no space was left un-gemmed – even the crown is set with diamonds and the hands are solid gold.
