Beating the Tambour

It was with the Tambour watch that Louis Vuitton took its first steps in the world of horology back in 2002. This timepiece with its uniquely shaped case has given rise to a whole collection, ranging from three-hand quartz models to Grand Complications. This new Tambour duo is intended more for fans of powerful design than for watchmaking purists drawn to technical content. The dial topping the quartz movement bears motifs embodying the distinctive values of the Maison. The ladies’ version has a textured dial adorned with the Monogram canvas motif and comes in three sizes to fit all wrists, while the 41.5mm men’s version features a textured rice-grain patterned dial evoking the checked Damier Graphite canvas. These motifs are swept over by hours and minutes hands filled with Super-LumiNovaTM, as well as a thin seconds hand lending a radiantly colorful touch. The Tambour Monogram is yellow, whereas the Tambour Damier Graphite is light blue. The watch comes with a strap patterned to match the dial, but those who so wish will have plenty of opportunities to add their own personal touch, thanks to the ingenious Louis Vuitton-patented interchangeability system.
