Louis Vuitton Flexes Its High-End Watchmaking With A Trio Of New Releases

In addition to the new Louis Vuitton Flying Tourbillon, Louis Vuitton has announced a number of other real high-horology pieces produced by La Fabrique du Temps in Geneva. All are priced well into the six figures but put on full display the mixture of craft and high watchmaking that few outside the world’s largest luxury brand can match. Let’s take a look.
For this first High Watchmaking timepiece, LV has worked with architect and long-time collaborator Frank Gehry to develop a sapphire flying tourbillon that also has Geneva Seal certification. For this five-piece limited edition that’ll cost you about a million bucks, Gehry took inspiration from previous buildings he’s designed for Louis Vuitton, along with the 2022 Tambour Moon Saphir for the case and dial. The result is a watch with a sapphire case, lugs, dials, and crown that feels airy paired with the skeletonized rose gold movement. The sapphire dial is polished and finished by hand; if you’re only making five, might as well, right? https://www.highluxurystore.ru/

And about that movement: It’s crafted by the wizards at La Fabrique du Temps, LV’s workshop outside Geneva. The movement features a flying tourbillon that rotates once a minute and carries Geneva Seal certification.

It’s as much a wrist structure as it is a watch, but the sapphire and skeletonization gives it a contemporary feel that matches Gehry’s aesthetic and feels fresh compared to something like the Carpe Diem https://www.highluxurystore.ru/.
