Inside the 43 mm platinum case, a vertically mounted gear-train can be seen along with the triple V bridges, inspired by the Louis Vuitton slogan, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez.”
Hamdi Chatti, Vice President of Watches & Jewelry at Louis Vuitton justifies the decision to obtain the prestigious Geneva Seal, “Well, clients of Louis Vuitton have never challenged us on the quality, and when we bring the Geneva Seal to our clients, people who enjoy the best that life can offer, there is no need to explain further. The value of the Geneva Seal is understood immediately.”
Intended to be sold directly to the dedicated clients, only two of these watches will be made per month. The latest and the most outstanding watch from the French luxury brand is estimated to sell at about $200,000 each. A small price to pay to have innovative luxury watches in our wrist.
