Louis Vuitton Launches New Lv Fifty Five Watch

Following the core series Tambour, Louis Vuitton launches the new LV Fifty Five series. This series of watches is inspired by the famous luggage in the history of the brand. The round case has a soft curve, and the upper and lower rivets are decorated with metal plates.
   The new LV Fifty Five GMT watch case is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 41 mm and is equipped with an ETA 2893 automatic movement. The 12 o’clock time scale is referred to as ‘LV’, and ‘LV’ means ’55’ in Roman numerals, which coincides with the series name ‘Fifty Five’; the quarter clock time scale is referred to as ‘V’; Stick design. The dial has a central GMT pointer, and the tip is decorated with an inverted ‘V’.
   The engraving and logo of the letter ‘V’ is repeated on the GMT hands, hour and minute markers, buckle and crown. The carefully carved winding crown is reminiscent of the rivet head on the trunk.
   The Louis Vuitton LV Fifty Five GMT watch is priced at $ 5,000. This series also has a 31mm ladies’ watch with an ETA quartz movement, priced at $ 3,300; and a 36mm unisex watch with an ETA 2892 automatic movement. Louis Vuitton’s new LV Fifty Five series will be officially launched in January next year.
