Decoding the art of travel with watchmaking

From antique pocket watches to limited-edition luxury timepieces, watchmaking is an art. It is not just about showing the time, it is about the craft, intricacy, detailing and design. There is a fine line between art and watchmaking and there are many luxury brands who bring uniqueness to every timepiece they create.

The Trunk Table Clock from Louis Vuitton is one such luxury example of art. It is the perfect combination of Louis Vuitton’s signature Art of Travel and watchmaking craftsmanship.

Housed in a tailor-made Monogram Eclipse trunk, and made to the same standards as a watch, it features a concave dual-time dial, essential for world travellers, and a bright dial displaying coloured flags. These symbolic Louis Vuitton symbols call to mind the customized trunk patterns of times past. The perfect nomadic object for globetrotters, the true embodiment of the Maison’s heritage in travel is combined with traditional functionality and luxury.

A perfect personal or business gift, this luxurious table clock mixes traditional functionality with Louis Vuitton’s legendary art of travel. When opening the lid, the house’s most iconic creation, the trunk, reveals its precious content, the utmost treasury: time. The trunk is covered with the iconic Monogram Eclipse canvas, giving it a sober yet sophisticated allure. Inside, the clock’s concave dual-time dial creates an impression of depth, with a 24-hour display and GMT indicator enabling local and home time to be read at a glance. Twelve brightly colored flags evoke the travelers’ trunks of yesteryear.
