Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has brought unique designs to the world, combining innovation with style, always aiming for the finest quality and preserving biodiversity.
Since then, audacity has shaped the story of Louis Vuitton. Faithful to its heritage, Louis Vuitton premiered the Tambour watch in 2002, an immediately recognisable drum-shaped case with a bold and arresting vision of time interpretation. After 21 years, the Tambour has matured and its next expression comes in a slimmer form, characterized by an exceptional finish, casual elegance, and sculptural, fluid lines.
The new LOUIS VUITTON Tambour is made possible by the advanced watchmaking expertise of Louis Vuitton, embodied by La Fabrique du Temps, the watchmaking atelier of the Maison in Geneva, founded and led by master watchmakers Enrico Barbasini and Michel Navas.
Two steel versions distinguish the launch of the new Tambour, reinforcing the designation of this collection for daily wear. The W1ST10 features a tone-on-tone model with silver-grey dial, while the W1ST20 presents a contrasting deep blue dial, despite being just over a millimeter thick, the dial of the new Tambour conveys surprising depth and three-dimensionality.
A sandblasted bezel with polished rims features the twelve-letter name of the Maison, a Tambour hallmark, but this time the letters are raised and polished, each minutely sculpted letter in line with an hour marker.
Craftsmanship may be visible to the eye, but it truly reveals itself when touched. The tactility of the new Tambour arises from this principle, making this watch a sensory indulgence.
