Catering to the well-heeled, for over 100 years, Louis Vuitton has been renowned for stylish canvas-covered travel case. Moving ahead with the time, the iconic monogram of the French fashion house started appearing on luxury products ranging from leather goods to ready-to-wear, shoes, watches, jewelry, accessories, sunglasses, and books. At Baselworld 2014, Louis Vuitton unveiled new collection of bejeweled watches for women. Inspired by Louis Vuitton’s 2012 high jewelry collection, called Voyage dans le Temps, the 2014 Dentelle de Monogram watch collection is mesmerizing.

The ultimate piece of the lineup is the Louis Vuitton white gold Damier Absolu Rivière jewellery watch (featured above). It tells time in the most glamorous style by featuring brilliant-cut diamonds almost all over the watch. Moreover the three rows of invisible set baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel bedazzles the envious eyes. Since diamonds are a girl’s best friend, this time piece is enhanced by an entirely diamond-set dial and a diamond ‘rivière’ bracelet.
