The Difference Between the LV Long Wallet and Brazza Wallet

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Brazza wallets. Long wallets. Both look the same, with one key difference.brazza-and-long-wallets

Louis Vuitton long wallets come in a variety of choices. Epi, Taurillon, Taiga, and coated canvas the house is famous for, and much more. It’s a dependable wallet, one that you can find use for, everyday. So if you’re a fan of LV and if you don’t have one yet, it’s hard to imagine why not.

When I bought myself an LV wallet, I wasn’t able to read up enough blog posts or Youtube videos of what I might want. At the back of my head, I thought that there was only one kind of long wallet. (My purchase interests did not veer into flap wallets or zippy wallets that LV also has).

In case you’re wondering, the same looking wallet is called two things: the Long Wallet, and the Brazza Wallet. There is one key significance between the two. And we’ll find out more in the photos below.

The wallets all have 16 card slots, with an extra slip-on pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo can be seen. There’s two bill pockets (one wider than the other) helping you part your cash when necessary. And there are two flat slip pockets also for other odds and ends you might want to insert there (older styles have three flat slip pockets). You’ll notice that the Brazza wallet has a tiny little zipper pull, supposedly for perhaps coins. But myself I never had the heart to put coins in that compartment ever.louis-vuitton-brazza-wallet-monogram-canvas-small-leather-goods-m66540_pm1_interior-view

The Long Wallet is the same in almost everything. Except for one glaring fact: this kind does not have a zipper pocket. Which could be a downer for some, so they can instead get a Brazza.long-wallet-no-zipper

After several years with my own Brazza wallet, I realized several things. One, I didn’t have much use for the zippered pocket. And because it’s a hanging metal zipper pull, it tends to leave a mark on the leather where it rests: both dents and metal stains. It’s not a big deal though. But for a zippered pocket I thought I would use and while ending up not using it at all, on hindsight I should have gotten the Long Wallet instead.

Long Wallets, in my way of using it, would have been the perfect wallet for me. No zippers, no dents, no metal stains. So the wallet would end up sleeker, and perhaps less trouble some to carry around.

I’m not saying the Brazza Wallet’s zippered pocket is awful though. It’s just as beautiful. There are wallet users that prefer and use the wallet compartment too. And if you’re find carrying coins in a wallet where you carry cards too, there’s nothing wrong with that. The added bonus of having a wallet that doubles as a coin holder should not be a problem.

So in case you’re interested to buy a wallet in this form factor from Louis Vuitton, I hope this article helps highlight what I glossed over when it was my turn buying one. For me, I guess it’s time to buy a new one!

Breguet reveals the Tradition Dame 7038

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Baselworld 2017 is a still a couple of weeks away, but Breguet is getting head start over the completion by debuting their Breguet Tradition Dame 7038. This is the first of hopefully many watches that will comprise the Tradition collection and while it does boast some subtle bling, it’s less about the glam and more about precision and technical beauty.

The 18kt rose gold, measuring 37mm boasts a bezel set with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds and a crown set with a watch movement jewel. The watch has lugs welded with screw bars and two sapphire crystals to show off the Swiss automatic Breguet in-house caliber 505SR movement which is complete with 38 jewels, and serves up a power reserve of 50 hours. The watch is water resistant to 30 m.

The dial is natural white mother-of-pearl, engine-turned Clou de Paris hobnailing and offset at 12 o’clock. It comes on a white alligator leather strap with an 18kt rose gold buckle.

Louis Vuitton’s latest spin time watch is the Escale Spin Time Blue

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s Escale Spin Time Blue takes their already clever Escale Spin Time watch to another realm of cool. Escale Spin Time watches are powered by an in-house LV movement which allows the 12 rotating cubes on the dial to move and tell time. This 2017 version also includes a flying tourbillon in the centre of the dial that rotates every minute. This is the first time the house has combined their Spin Time movement with a flying tourbillon.

This innovation is housed in a 41 mm satin finished titanium case with a platinum bezel, lugs and crown. The v-shaped tourbillon carriage seems to float over the dial of the watch and the house chose to enhance this effect by using a specially designed sapphire crystal. While previous renditions of the Escale Spin Time have been pretty colorful, this watch uses a single color- blue- to great effect. The Escale Spin Time Blue is finished with a navy blue alligator strap with a yellow rubber-effect calfskin lining and a white gold pin buckle.
