Description

In 2002, Louis Vuitton premiered the Tambour watch, an immediately recognisable drum-shaped case with a bold and arresting vision of time interpretation. After 21 years, the emblematic Tambour has matured, and its next expression comes in a slimmer form, characterised by exceptional finish, casual elegance, and sculptural, fluid lines. This sophisticated yellow gold model distinguishes the launch of the new Tambour collection, combining precious character and a modern morphology. This Tambour is enriched with two additional firsts for Louis Vuitton — a cleverly integrated bracelet and an exclusive new and beautifully crafted automatic movement designed by La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton.

The Tambour displays a strong statement on its central brushed dial section, LOUIS VUITTON PARIS, a declaration of the Maison’s origins. Tucked below the snailed small-seconds counter, FAB. EN SUISSE alludes to La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton and its elevated craftsmanship. Parisian flair and Swiss expertise, together in one creation. 

The new calibre LFT023 is the first proprietary automatic three-hand movement designed by La Fabrique du Temps to fully embody the Maison’s visual codes, from the barrel cover reminiscent of a Monogram Flower to the micro-rotor engraved with a stylised LV in a repeating motif. The calibre LFT023 is chronometer certified by the Geneva Chronometric Observatory.
