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

Showcasing the Plique-à-jour enamel technique from the 6th century Byzantine Empire.


Following its successful iterations as a minute repeater, a bedazzled and a skeletonized timepiece, the Louis Vuitton Voyager takes another bold step forward with the introduction of the Voyager Flying Tourbillon Plique-à-jour. This new iteration seamlessly blends artistic expression with intricate watchmaking, resulting in a truly unique wrist statement.

The Voyager Flying Tourbillon Plique-à-jour comes housed in a stunning 41mm x 11.68mm platinum 950 and 18k white gold case with polished and brushed finishes, creating a captivating visual texture. The sapphire crystals on both the front and back offer clear views of the intricate mechanics within. Water resistance is 50 meters.

A vibrant blue plique-à-jour enamel forms the backdrop for the dial, showcasing a centuries-old technique that evokes the beauty of stained glass windows. This translucent enamel canvas is meticulously crafted with five to six layers, each requiring a separate firing, resulting in over 100 hours of work per dial. Nestled within this artistic canvas is a simple yet legible time display. A bright blue circle at 12 o’clock serves as the hour marker, complemented by a blue lumed minute hand. At 6 o’clock, a large aperture reveals the mesmerizing flying tourbillon, its V-shaped cage housing the escapement and balance wheel, appearing to gracefully “fly” as it completes its one-minute revolution.

Powering the Voyager Flying Tourbillon Pique-à-jour is the hand-wound LV 104 movement. This 168-piece caliber boasts a robust 80-hour power reserve and beats at a traditional 3Hz (21,600 vph) frequency.

Completing the package is a luxurious navy blue calf leather strap with a platinum folding buckle. The pricing and availability are provided upon request.
