The Monogram Flower, one of the House’s key symbols, takes on a new bloom with the arrival of a double collection including both jewellery and precious watches. The highlight of both is a focus on flowers sculpted from mother-of-pearl and ornamental stones, creating a sense of delicate femininity, highlighted by the Louis Vuitton savoir-faire.
Bathed in pink or blue, the Monogram Flower at the centre of the Blossom watches is another example of the technical excellence of the Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. Each flower is sculpted in three dimensions from a single piece of mother-of-pearl, the shapes and details emulating every gesture of the hand, according to the technique used for cameos. Shades of blue or pink are then applied to the reverse of the piece, again by hand, to create a delicate, nuanced effect. The finesse and delicate attention to detail of this craftsmanship allows the House to create every more exceptional watch faces.
With the mother-of-pearl flower as a centerpiece, each face also features diamonds, from a steel design with studded bezel and index to a pink gold version with a snow-set face. Cases and indexes are also diamond-paved on the Tambour Spin Time and Tambour Monogram Tourbillon.
On the Tambour Monogram Tourbillon, one of the petals of the flower is replaced by the flower-shaped cage of the tourbillon, a movement created by the Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. Likewise the Tambour Spin Time, a movement allowing the time to be read thanks to a series of rotating diamond-studded cubes placed around the central flower. An alligator bracelet matches the pink or blue shade of the Monogram Flower.
