Just because – the incredible Louis Vuitton Tambour Moon Flying Tourbillon 'Poinçon de Genève'

Earlier this year, Andrew spent some (very) quality time in New Zealand with Louis Vuitton and some of their most serious watchmaking. If you haven't seen the video, it's definitely worth a look (as is this one), but we reckon this watch, the Louis Vuitton Tambour Moon Flying Tourbillon 'Poinçon de Genève' is worth a second look, as our photographer Jason Reekie has worked wonders with his macro lens.  If you're in the mood for a seriously high-end statement piece,…

"Instead of watching TV when I was 10 years old, I took watches apart." Celebrating 10 years of Louis Vuitton's Spin Time with its creator, Michel Navas

When it comes to watchmaking, it's no stretch of a hairspring to say that Michel Navas has done it all. He was a key figure at Gérald Genta in the high complications team in the boom times of the '90s. He also worked at Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet.
