PARIS — Marc Jacobs actually designed his first watch for Louis Vuitton 12 years ago, but only luxury titan Bernard Arnault saw the sketch. It was part of a submission to LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton that ultimately won Jacobs the job as Vuitton's artistic director.
The designer revisited some elements of his original design for the Emprise watch he unveiled on Sunday after the Vuitton fall fashion show here, including placing the LV logo at 5 o'clock. The square, dressy timepiece is slated to arrive in Vuitton stores starting in June, retailing from 6,950 euros to 90,000 euros, or $10,425 to $135,000 at current exchange rates. The watch comes in four sizes for women and men; the most elaborate version is pavéd with diamonds.
