To unveil the Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève - the house's first timepiece bearing the prestigious Seal of Geneva - and its latest Acte V/The Escape high jewellery to Hong Kong fans, the brand hosted an exclusive preview at a private luxury residence in Deep Water Bay. Guests such as Andre Fu, Adrian Cheng and Alan Lo joined the brand's vice-president of watches and jewellery Hamdi Chatti as well as Michel Navas, watchmaker of La Fabrique du Temps fame, at the stellar event. 

 

CHIC CHAT with Hamdi Chatti

What's your vision for the Poinçon de Genève flying tourbillon watch?

What we've mastered is the perfect blend of centuries-old traditional watchmaking and very contemporary take of Louis Vuitton.

Has Louis Vuitton always been eyeing the prestigious Geneva seal?

Yes. It's a challenge but we love the challenge.

What's your take of the recognition?

We wanted to honour the craft of the city [Geneva] which is high-end watchmaking, but we wanted to do it our way.

What is your way?

We represent a maison of today. We want something contemporary.
