Meet Louis Vuitton's first foray into fine watchmaking.

BY EDITORS | Jul 5, 2016 | News

Louis Vuitton ventures into the exclusive realm of fine watchmaking for the first time, armed with a “Poinçon de Genève”, or the Seal of Geneva, certification, which is awarded only to watches with finishing that abides by the highest standards and quality. Here, transparency leaves nothing to the imagination. The exposed winding column from the crown to the gears can be seen under the off-centre hour and minute sapphire dial. A flying tourbillon is suspended from a “V” bridge. The case is made up of both matte and mirror-polished platinum.
