Marc Bohan put Philippe Guiborge in the design seat for this collection. Phillipe Guiborge was one of the hip, young designers who shook up the French Haute couture in the 1960s while he worked for Jacques Faith and helped design his ready to wear collection and was invited by Marc Bohan to move to Dior in the 1960s. In 1975, shortly before this watch was launched, Phillipe Guiborge left Dior and went to Chanel where he created the first ready-to-wear line (in 1977). This was most likely the last collection designed by Guiborge for Dior before he left for Chanel.
Guiborge went on from Chanel in 1983 to design his own label but sadly, his life ended shortly thereafter. Chanel was then taken over by Lagerfeld who has headed the house of Chanel ever since.
