Louis Vuitton X Akrivia

The LVRR-01 Chronometer with a tourbillion regulator boasts an acoustic reminder of elapsed time through the chronograph’s striking sonnerie mechanism – a true statement in contemporary watchmaking history.

In a recent trend of luxury watch collaborations, Louis Vuitton has entered the arena for the first time, partnering with watchmaker Rexhep Rexhepi. Their joint creation, the LVRR-01 Chronographe à Sonnerie, is a testament to their shared vision for the future of horology and artisanal craftsmanship. The collaboration also includes the Louis Vuitton Watch Prize for Independent Creatives, providing financial support and mentorship for emerging watchmakers.

The LVRR-01 Chronographe à Sonnerie is a masterpiece, with double dials housed in a platinum case. The front dial showcases exquisite craftsmanship, while the back dial pays tribute to Louis Vuitton’s heritage. The watch draws inspiration from Akrivia’s AK-01 and Louis Vuitton’s Tambour LV277.

This collaboration is historic as it merges Louis Vuitton’s iconic “LV” logo with another brand’s insignia for the first time. Limited to just 10 pieces, this timepiece combines Rexhepi’s watchmaking expertise with Louis Vuitton’s signature design elements.

What sets this watch apart is its status as the world’s first wristwatch chronograph equipped with a sonnerie mechanism for measuring elapsed time. It offers an acoustic reminder of time passing and features an innovative twin-barrel design.

Louis Vuitton presents the watch in a hand-painted trunk box, adding a touch of artistry. The LVRR-01 comes with a natural cowhide leather strap and a unique platinum pin buckle.

This collaboration redefines the horological landscape, blending innovation, craftsmanship, and heritage. It promises to inspire future generations of watchmakers, leaving an indelible mark on haute horlogerie.
