It is a precious and secretive timepiece. A timepiece paved with diamonds, a cheerful timepiece, a piece that blends watchmaking and jewelry expertise. The Vivienne Bijou Secret embodies the refined elegance of the house of Louis Vuitton. The watch’s flower face is nestled in pink gold, white gold and yellow gold and over 150 brilliant-cut snow set diamonds. It’s a watch that enjoys playing hide and seek for its movable face twists to reveal or cover a white gold case and within a white mother-of-pearl marquetry dial embellished with the iconic Monogram flower pattern and is set with eight diamond indexes. The house has also launched a version with a diamond-paved bracelet with four supple mobile rows that fit perfectly to the wrist. It was just many of the wonders at the Watches and Wonders digital trade fair held last April in Geneva.
The watch is outfitted with a quartz movement, an anti-reflection sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 30 meters. The watch is adorned with 398 brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 16.81 carats. The house of Louis Vuitton has been bringing refined designs to the world since 1854 and remains faithful to the spirit of its founder, Louis Vuitton, who invented an art of and invitation to travel through luggage, bags and accessories.
