Introduced in April 2016 with the exceptionally pricey Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève,Louis Vuitton‘s circle-meets-square ovoid case returns with the new Voyager GMT. A dual time zone automatic, the Voyager GMT has a prominent “V” indicating the second time zone.
Essentially a bridge screwed onto the dial, the second time zone pointer is an oversized “V” – a recurring motif throughout the trunk maker’s products – indicating the home time zone on rotating 24-hour disc that’s black and white to distinguish between day and nighttime. Both the hands and second time zone are set with the crown.
The case is 41.5mm in diameter, while the movement inside is an basic ETA automatic with a 42-hour power reserve. It’s available in stainless steel with three dial colours, or 18k pink gold with a blue dial.
The steel models are fitted with a calfskin strap and priced at US$6100 or S$8100. On a steel bracelet it’s US$6500 or S$8900. In pink gold the price is US$18,700 or S$25,600.
They reach stores in June 2016.
