History of LOUIS VUITTON
The watch-making tycoon, Louis Vuitton, has a career trajectory of its own. Its inception leads us back to a shop in Paris near the Place Vendome of 1854, where the brand gained success due to its superbly designed and innovative fashion accessories. The label's LV monogram appears on most of its products, ranging from luxury trunks and leather goods to ready-to-wear, shoes, watches, jewelry, accessories, sunglasses and books. Today, Louis Vuitton is one of the world's leading international fashion houses, which produces watches for women and men.
Louis Vuitton’s initial years of watch-making started from 2002 when it launched its first series of watches, the Tambour. This masterpiece has become so immensely popular due to its unique design and intriguing name that it was later made available for both men and women. In addition to this, what makes this watch even more special is that its variants range from simple three-handers to pretty complex ones which include chronographs, tourbillons, Spin Time, minute repeaters and GMT – the latter a reminder of the company’s origins in travel.
LV launched its four Tambour “Icon” watches which have the essence of Louis Vuitton in them, especially Tambour Damier Graphite and Tambour Monogram. The pattern of these gorgeous watches is very suggestive of the name of the brand, as they have the name engraved on the straps and the dials. This variant is the latest among men’s luxury watches. This is how these patterns came into existence. To retain the wild success, Louis Vuitton, in the late 19th century, wanted to set itself apart from its rivals by transforming its flat-top streamer trunks with a new canvas of alternating brown and beige squares, which was called the Damier canvas. Due to the presence of several imitators in the market, Louis Vuitton’s son and heir Georges Vuitton worked out a new Monogram canvas in 1896 which was inspired by four-petal flowers on the Gien earthenware tiles in the family kitchen in Asnières, which latterly became the base of the brand’s identity.
The dial of the new watches incorporate hallowed patterns, show the texture of the canvas recreated by engraved steel, which is printed to make them look like the trendiest men’s luxury watch. It was made possible by the skilled craftsmen, who are the dial experts at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in Geneva.
In 2009, Louis Vuitton launched Spin Time movement, a product completely designed and assembled by it. This advanced movement was equipped with innovative and exclusive time display.
To make sure that the business expands and runs smoothly, Louis Vuitton took over La Fabrique du Temps in Geneva in 2011. Owned by Michel Navas and Enrico Barbasini, the watch-making Gurus, the company aimed at intuitive solutions and contemporary design codes by developing a stellar approach to complexities of the domain. In 2014, the brand constructed its manufacturing unit in Meyrin, which was the one-stop destination for R&D, movement production and dial making. Later in the year the company inaugurated La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton and launched the legendary Escale Worldtime watch. Further, the launch of Louis Vuitton watch, Tambour made Louis Vuitton an upholder in the watch-making domain.
By acing their watchmaking game by traditional craftsmanship, Louis Vuitton acquired the Geneva Hallmark for the first time in 2016, for the Voyager Flying Tourbillon, “Poinçon de Genève”. This elegant timepiece and the award of the exclusive certification became a milestone in the history of watch-making. It was basically a crown on the company’s head.
On the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Spin Time movement in 2019, Louis Vuitton launched the Tambour Spin Time Air Collection.
