Louis Vuitton’s surprising Spin Time complication, visible through a transparent back, is an exclusive innovation in dazzling rose gold. This modernized take on LV’s classic tambour links high watchmaking and playful handling to bring about a posh design with big game appeal. A stylish step up for this LVMH member, constructed in La Fabrique du Temps, with unobstructed views of its Côtes de Genève for added intrigue. A doré case diameter measuring 44mm, gray dial and complementary Anthracite gray alligator strap reigns in a 40-hour power reserve and 12-hour GMT function. An agile ticker that oscillates with a LV119 calibre, masked by a reflection-proof sapphire glass coating and uncommon date display at 4:30. Established on a contemporary way to read time, hours are readable on Spin Time’s rotating cubes/cylinders; minutes remain readable by a hand.

Spin Time’s unseasoned, agile movement indeed makes a fascinating release from a Swiss-made, French marque. Price upon request at Louis Vuitton stores and louisvuitton.com
