Powering the new Tourbillon Volant is the manual winding Calibre LV104 offers a standard time-only display with seconds shown on the impressive looking tourbillon at 6 o’clock. The movement offers an 80 hour power reserve when fully wound although disappointingly I couldn’t spot a power-reserve indicator. What I could spot however was a lot of ‘V’ shapes, both in the movement and the sub-dial at 12 o’clock, an aesthetic choice I’m not quite sure how to feel about.
Branding wise I would say the Tourbillon Volant it’s pretty understated by Louis Vuitton standards but even still something about feeling the need to display the Geneva Seal on the front of the replica watch just doesn’t sit right with me. Personally I would have preferred to see this on the back of the movement, perhaps in place of the LV logo engraved into the baseplate. It is a timepiece after all and not a handbag.-->
