n late spring of 2023, Louis Vuitton moved into a new era of contemporary watchmaking with the relaunch of the Maison’s core timepiece collection, the Tambour. Certain visual emblems of the Tambour, such as its drum-shaped case with curved sides, the bezel marked with the twelve Louis Vuitton letters, and the bold volume of its vertical profile, were retained as part of the collection’s essential codes. Other aspects were reworked and reinterpreted, and – most significantly – an integrated bracelet was introduced to recast the Tambour in the modern morphology of sporty elegant watchmaking.
- The steel and rose gold Tambour epitomises everyday indulgence, demonstrating how a watch be both timeless and modern, discreet yet openly expressive at the same time.
The new Tambour in steel and rose gold recaptures the effect of the all-steel version with its minimalist style that puts the primary focus on the details of the finishing and craftsmanship. With selected accents in rose gold, like centre links, crown, bezel, hour markers and hands, this two-tone model embraces the side of the Maison that articulates its tradition of classic luxury.
The undeniable range and versatility of the Tambour arise from the ideal proportions and textures of its finely crafted form, but also from the high quality of the movement within, the chronometer-certified cal. LFT023 designed by La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in collaboration with Le Cercle des Horlogers. The cal. LFT023 has a timekeeping accuracy of between -4 and +6 seconds per day, with a 50-hour power reserve supplied by a high-inertia 22k rose gold micro-rotor.
