he LVMH group that owns Louis Vuitton mens replica also owns a series of replica watch makers such as TAG Heuer, Bulgari, Zenith, and Hublot. It is arguable that Louis Vuitton as a brand doesn’t need to also make replica watches – but they do, and for the most part, they are very nicely done. Louis Vuitton’s best replica watch craft comes from their in-house La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton facility. The brand today makes a small number of replica watches (comparatively speaking) and they range from everyday models with quartz movements for women to very exotic tourbillon-based timepieces at the uppermost end of the spectrum. Today, we are looking at the new-for-2016 Louis Vuitton Voyager GMT replica watch collection.
The Louis Vuitton Voyager GMT offers a novel case design which is somewhere between round and cushion-shaped. I haven’t worn it myself yet, but I am curious about how it looks on the wrist. Like the famous Tambour case that Louis Vuitton is known for, this new Voyager case design benefits from being both comfortable-looking and distinctive. It is hard to tell from images alone what it will look like on the wrist, but I’m open-minded and optimistic about it.
I just had to re-write the below paragraph because I initially worte it after reading Louis Vuitton’s materials on the replica watch – which didn’t even include the proper name of the replica watch. For that reason you might see this timepiece out there referred to as the “Louis Vuitton GMT” without the Voyager part of the name. What I said is that I almost felt that Louis Vuitton utterly didn’t have replica watch enthusiasts in mind when coming up with this personality-free name for an otherwise interesting collection if the name was just “Louis Vuitton GMT.” As you likely know, “GMT” is the term for a complication, and it also refers to “Greenwich Mean Time.” GMT is the name typically given to any timepiece which offers a second time zone in 24-hour format. If a replica watch offers a second time zone in 12-hour format, it is just a “dual time zone” replica watch, and frankly, brands get this confused a lot.
Yes, it is correct that these replica watches have a GMT function. With that said, is that enough to give this collection any manner of personality? It would be like calling a new truck the “Ford 4×4.” All that does is explain some of the functionality that the product has – which is functionality shared by others. Louis Vuitton is by no means the only company on the market to make GMT replica watches, and this isn’t the only GMT replica watch that Louis Vuitton makes. So knowing that, you can understand why I was irritated to receive documentation that simply called it the GMT. Rather, these replica watches are the Louis Vuitton Voyager GMT.
The Louis Vuitton Voyager GMT case is 41.5mm wide (water resistant to 50 meters) and available at launch in either a steel case or an 18k pink gold case. You also see three different strap options which include a steel bracelet, textured gray “taurillon” calf leather strap for the steel case, or a blue alligator strap for the 18k pink gold model. I am happy that a bracelet exists. Louis Vuitton offers bracelets on a number of their replica watches in addition to straps, which is a good sign. Bracelets are difficult to engineer and often work only with particular cases. That means Louis Vuitton puts the effort into making them in order to have a more complete replica watch design experience – and I approve of that, of course.
