The LVRR-01 watch combines the essence of the two brands. It is a double-sided watch that combines the chime complication and the chronograph function. The LVRR-01 adopts the redesigned Louis Vuitton Tambour case shape and is equipped with a new tourbillon movement independently developed by Atelier Akrivia and its founder Rexhep Rexhepi. It is a rare and iconic work in the watch industry.

The emblem on the surface of the sapphire is unique. From a distance, it seems to be a traditional emblem. When you look closely, you will find that it is a combination of two brand names. The LV letters are cleverly integrated into AKRIVIA, reflecting the basic concept of the LVRR-01 watch. This is the first time in Louis Vuitton's history that its emblem has been integrated with other brands.

Mr. Louis Vuitton was born in a small town near the Swiss border in 1821. He moved to Paris when he was a teenager and became an apprentice to a famous suitcase maker at the time. Soon, he became famous for his exquisite luggage making skills, winning the favor of clients such as the Queen of France. In 1854, he established a workshop of the same name and it was so successful that he eventually moved to the larger Asnières trunk workshop, which is still in use today. History will not repeat itself, but there will always be similarities. Rexhep Rexhepi also left his hometown of Kosovo when he was a teenager and went to Geneva. Soon after, he became an apprentice in a high-end watchmaking workshop at the age of 14. In 2012, he founded the brand Atelier Akrivia, determined to uphold the fine tradition of high-end watchmaking.

An ingenious double-sided dial was developed in collaboration between the two brands to showcase these complex functions. The front dial is modern in style, made of colored sapphire crystal, and contrasts with the traditional white Grand Feu enamel reverse dial, each showing the unique personality of the two brands. Complications bear witness to the history of Louis Vuitton and Rexhep Rexhepi. Atelier Akrivia's first timepiece, the AK-01, combined a chronograph and a tourbillon, while Louis Vuitton's first complication, the Tambour LV277, was a chronograph and its first Haute Horlogerie complication was also a tourbillon. .

It combines the style of Louis Vuitton's Tambour watch with the personality of Rexhep Rexhepi, especially its slim and classic shape. The LVRR-01 reinterprets the Tambour’s drum-shaped case with a streamlined appearance, a high, sloping bezel and elegantly carved lugs that reference the design style of mid-century gentleman’s watches.
