Louis Vuitton Voyager Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève
With their ‘Factory of time,’ or la Fabrique du Temps, does Louis Vuitton possess a manufacture capable of making even the most complicated watches in-house. This can be innovative complications, like the Spin Time, but also more classic creations such as the Voyager Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève. While this timepiece pays tribute to the ancient art of watchmaking, wouldn’t this be a true Louis Vuitton if they didn’t make it entirely their own.
This starts with the Voyager case, which has a sleek design to maximize wearing comfort. In this particular watch, Louis Vuitton crafted the case from pink gold and combined it with an invisible setting of baguette-cut, colorless diamonds on the bezel with brilliant-cut diamonds on the sides. This contrast gives the Voyager an even richer look and amplifies the unique shape of the case. The manual wind movement, with an 80-hour power reserve, shines by being as absent as possible. Louis Vuitton utilized an almost extreme type of skeletonization, to the extent that this Voyager is practically a mystery watch.
Details are very important to Louis Vuitton, and they invest a lot of time and resources to get them just right. The architecture of the bridges features several V’s, as also does the top of the tourbillon carriage. This not only looks good, but also serves a practical purpose as the point of the V now doubles as a seconds indicator. The tourbillon is of the flying-kind, which means that it lacks a top bridge so that it can be admired in even greater detail. Despite the extreme skeletonization is the finish of each of the 168 part of caliber LV 104 superb, and does this watch meet all the requirements to be awarded the prestigious Poinçon de Genève. While this Voyager Flying Tourbillon most certainly doesn’t need this seal of approval to shine, it does help to emphasize the incredible amount of knowledge and craftsmanship Louis Vuitton invested in this stunning watch.
