My next stop of the day was to check out the Louis Vuitton pieces.  They had a cool concept with a Louis Vuitton boat in front of Three Kings Hotel in Basel where it picked up their invited guests in a Mercedes Benz and drove them to the hotel where everyone needed a special invitation to get on the boat.

I was greeted by the PR rep from New York, Michael Kiel, and Director of Advertising, Eric Lichtmess.  They showed me the new selection of watches and  I was very impressed with the just released America’s Cup piece, since I met with Russell Couts, Oracle Racing Skipper just two months ago and heard about the partnership between America’s Cup and Louis Vuitton.

They had a selection of pieces but I was most impressed with the more complicated pieces that ran for around $35,000 to $55,000  Then they showed me the very complicated, special Tourbillon pieces, along with the very cool  Lambour Mysterieuse.  I also liked the Tambour Tourbillon Monogram, where you guess,  you can customize the piece with your very own monogram initials.  These pieces are not cheap, as they run around $250,000 and are well worth the investment.
