Suit me up: Dior Chiffre Rouge A05 Chronograph





There’s a new edition to the undeniably stylish Dior Rouge range – this one is the black as night chronograph known as the Chiffre Rouge A05.

Redesigned and embellished with new watchmaking features, the Chiffre Rouge A05 timepiece revisits the volumes and proportions of its case and bracelet, while keeping the codes that have always ensured its success: a steel structure moulded with black rubber and a distinctive red case-back.


It’s a graphic-looking timekeeper, with its new dial echoing the design codes of the Dior Homme universe.





This chronometer certified chronograph with tachymeter scale is a strong restatement of the technical and functional features of the Chiffre Rouge collection.

In order to complement Dior clothing for men, the Chiffre Rouge watch collection from Dior picks up on details from Dior Homme tailoring and transforms them into design cues for this most masculine of Dior's watches.


The Dior Chiffre Rouge range was first was launched in 2004 under the guidance of then Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane.
