Louis Vuitton GMT

La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton's new GMT watch is indeniably masculine, urban and modern.

The new Louis Vuitton GMT watch features a distinctive case with a shape that has never been seen on a Louis Vuitton timepiece. Midway between a circle and a square, it is a result of the constant quest for creativity that has been the founding spirit behind La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. Its reduced thickness, compact diameter and optimal wearability make it a functional watch for everyday use, and its GMT complication means it is perfect for travellers.

Though different, this design still echoes the brand's distinctive codes. The case boasts satin-finished sides and a polished top, a satin-finished dial and rounded hour and minute markers. It has been designed to be comfortable in any circumstances. The unique shape is so versatile that it was also used for the Tourbillon Volant Poinçon de Genève watch, the House’s signature complication.

The dial was conceived based on the letter V, the signature originally designed by Gaston-Louis Vuitton, that indicates 12 o’clock and forms the steel bridge that supports its dial. Its masculine presence sets the tone.

Mechanical watch with automatic wind, its second time is shown on a disc whose hand is the foot of the V which crosses the dial. The disc is calibrated at 24 hours and divided into two colours to indicate day and night.

As a trunk maker and leather goods specialist, Louis Vuitton uses the House’s Taurillon leather for the strap. It is slightly grained and extraordinarily supple. Alternatively, the watch, which comes in a steel case with grey or anthracite dial, or with an 18-carat pink gold version featuring a dark blue dial and an alligator bracelet (see picture at the top of the page), may be worn with a steel bracelet that has been crafted specifically for the occasion. Its links are an alternating series of polished and satin finishes, a testament to the House’s singular commitment to quality.
