Louis Vuitton Replicates Frank Gehry’s Architectural Style in a Transparent Tambour Watch

Frank Gehry’s Architectural

Louis Vuitton has introduced a strikingly innovative timepiece in collaboration with the esteemed architect, Frank Gehry. Named the Tambour Moon Flying Tourbillon Poinçon De Genève Sapphire Frank Gehry, this watch stands as a testament to the remarkable craftsmanship of La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in the realm of high-watchmaking. Alongside this creation, the brand also unveiled several other new timepieces, all showcasing their mastery in the art of horology.

Encased in a mesmerizingly translucent 43.8mm-wide casing, this timepiece takes inspiration from the architectural wonders of Louis Vuitton’s Seoul Maison and the iconic Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris, both masterpieces designed by Gehry. Crafted entirely from sapphire, from the case to the lugs, crown, and dial, the watch features Gehry’s signature engraved on the caseback. The sapphire protecting the watch face has been meticulously sculpted and polished by hand to mirror the distinctive shapes found in Gehry’s architectural marvels.

Powering this exceptional timepiece is the LFTMM05.01, an in-house mechanical movement equipped with manual winding, meticulously developed and assembled by La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. It proudly bears the prestigious “Poinçon de Genève” certification on its central bridge. In addition to displaying the essential hour and minute, the watch boasts a skeleton flying tourbillon and a monogram flower tourbillon cage that rotates every minute.

Limited to just five pieces, the Tambour Moon Flying Tourbillon Poinçon De Genève Sapphire Frank Gehry is priced at $935,000 USD. For those interested, further details regarding the availability of this exceptional timepiece can be found on Louis Vuitton’s website.
