Louis Vuitton Creates Steel Version of Emprise Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

Iconic French luxury label Louis Vuitton has created a steel version of its classic Emprise timepiece.

Available with a choice of black or white dial, the augmented watch remains loyal to its original design, with its form and decorative motifs inspired by Louis Vuitton’s signature trunks.

The square-faced 23mm watch features a dial with pure lines designed to capture the minimal elegance of wood paneling found in the Maison’s trunks, with their padded interiors replicated by the powdered tones of its dial.

Furthermore, the horns that attach the watch to the strap are reminiscent of the corner caps and notches found on the trunks.

The new Emprise timepiece is also engraved with Louis Vuitton’s distinctive logo and features Sapphire glass with reflection proof coating.

The watch is available in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide priced at £1,860 (€2,356).
