TAMBOUR Louis Vuitton

TAMBOUR Louis Vuitton


To usher in its new decade, the masterpiece symbolizing the Parisian brand’s vision of time embraces a reworked silhouette and a mechanical heart certified by the Geneva Observatory’s Chronometry Service.

It celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022, a young age in which to blossom, experiment with unknown territories, develop one’s personality, and embarks on a new decade with the wisdom that comes with maturity. The Tambour watch, this expression of time interpreted by Louis Vuitton, has chosen to make a few changes to accentuate its outer and inner beauty, to embrace a reworked silhouette and to embark on a mechanical heart whose precision has been certified by the Geneva Observatory’s Chronometry Service, a further guarantee of its well-made nature.

The Tambour‘s aesthetic adventure is based on a softening of the curve of its steel case. This architectural case measures 40mm in diameter and 8.3mm thick, and features the Parisian brand’s signature capital letters engraved in relief on its side. Thanks to the absence of lugs, it integrates perfectly with the metal link bracelet for optimized ergonomics.

Composed of concentric rings bending a large disc and encompassing a small seconds at 6 o’clock, the face of this Louis Vuitton, offered in a silver-grey or royal-blue hue, displays the hours and minutes via two luminescent central hands. This phosphorescence also adorns the quintet of Arabic numerals, while the alternating finishes (grained, brushed and azure surfaces) and stampings (hollowed and applied triangular hour-markers) accentuate the three-dimensional effect revealed on the dial. Time information is provided by the LFT 023 caliber designed by La Fabrique du Temps, a 4hz movement with automatic winding by gold micro-rotor that provides a 50-hour power reserve.
