"The dial itself is comprised of a series of rings integrated into the movement. These rings are hand-painted with the names of the cities and corresponding emblems inspired by the monograms used on vintage Louis Vuitton trunks. There are 38 colors used on the dial and it takes over 50 hours for an artisan to hand-paint and fire the various rings. The Louis Vuitton logo and the yellow arrow are actually applied to the underside of the sapphire crystal and they sit suspended over the dial rings." This stunner is priced at $67,000 and comes only in white gold. But this timepiece is truly a conversation starter!

An ad of all things had caught my eye while reading the latest trade magazines. The owner of a 17.48cts pear shaped natural fancy purplish/pink internally flawless diamond was stolen from its own in Switzerland in 2012. The stone is GIA certified and has significant value. There is also a $1.0Million dollar REWARD. Since this stone has been missing for 2 years any guess its been recut and set and sold already. But for the owners sake, I hope that they find their stone.
