Louis Vuitton sets a new milestone and proudly shows off the Geneva Seal (“Poinçon de Genève”) certification earned for its new Tourbillon Volant watch. We also see a new case design from Louis Vuitton — framing highly skeletonized and largely transparent dial in this instance. The watch is certainly an eye catcher, with an attractive mix of brushed and polished surfaces, chamfered edges and “V” shapes integrated on front and back. And that case? Platinum. A superb piece for the first Geneva Seal certification from La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. Look on…

Did You Know?
Introduced by the Republic and Canton of Geneva in 1886 as the ultimate standard in excellence and an emblem of Geneva’s fine watchmaking expertise, the Poinçon de Genève is synonymous with 3 general criteria: provenance, quality craftsmanship and reliability.
Provenance – the Poinçon de Genève is a guarantee of authenticity, of a product made by the finest craftsmen in the Republic and Canton of Geneva, whose success is renowned worldwide. Only a few select watchmakers and “manufactures” based in Geneva have been awarded this certification.
Reliability – The Poinçon de Genève submits every watch to a number of tests to ensure their quality and reliability (e.g. quality assurance, functional test, water resistance, accuracy, power reserve). A watch with Poinçon de Genève certification offers the assurance of a fine timepiece made using the latest technologies for reliability and precision.
Craftsmanship – To obtain the distinction, each watch component (e.g. baseplate and bridges, adjustment system, wheel train and jewels, shaped parts) must be made with the utmost care, and finely decorated. The Poinçon de Genève is synonymous with exceptional aesthetic quality, and guarantees that the product purchased is flawless and unique, a source of great sentimental, artistic and material value.
