Louis Vuitton Unveils Voyager Flying Tourbillon ‘Poinçon de Genève’ Plique-à-jour

Louis Vuitton is illuminating the world of high watchmaking with a new timepiece, the Voyager Flying Tourbillon “Poinçon de Genève” Plique-à-jour. The intricate timekeeper marries artistic craftsmanship with mechanical mastery to create a modern stained-glass window upon the wrist.

With its plique-à-jour enamel dial, the Voyager becomes a wearable prism, refracting light into a kaleidoscopic canvas. This rare and painstaking technique, requiring great dexterity and precision, transforms the dial into a radiant work of art. The visually arresting blue gradient, achieved through meticulous layering and firing of the enamel, emanates an ethereal iridescence.

Beneath the translucent enamel, the skeletonized flying tourbillon movement is unveiled like a cosmic phenomenon. The rotating V-shaped carriage evokes a comet tail streaking across the deep midnight sky. This astronomic allusion is fitting, as creating such a timepiece requires utmost mastery of the celestial mechanics within.

The Poinçon de Genève hallmark further cements the Voyager’s stature, certifying the peerless quality of its craftsmanship. With this timepiece, Louis Vuitton has created a veritable lighthouse to guide the way for contemporary haute horlogerie. The Maison paves the way for the future by reviving and honoring historic artistic traditions. Much like light through a prism, the Voyager refracts the past into a brilliant new vision.
