A new Tambour Chronograph for Louis Vuitton

May 2011

The chronograph has its special place in Louis Vuitton’s time collections as it ties in perfectly to the brand’s spirit of travel. The new Voyagez Tambour Automatic Chronograph ‘Tachometer” is a true instrument for travel with its chronograph and tachymeter function that allows its owner to calculate his land speed. This new timepiece joins Louis Vuitton’s Voyagez and Volez chronograph collections, names that represent instruments for land and air travel.

A 44mm stainless steel Tambour case houses a LV172 automatic chronograph calibre with a 42-hour power reserve produced by Dubois Dépraz. A grey and red dial displays the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the chronograph counters, 24-hour display and tachymeter function. The timepiece is completed with a black carbon strap and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

This year is the first time Louis Vuitton will be exhibiting during the BaselWorld fair. Not at the main fair itself, but on a boat docked on the water behind Basel’s Three Kings Hotel. Europa Star is looking forward to getting together with the brand’s Director for Watches and Jewellery, Hamdi Chatti, to find out more about Louis Vuitton’s strategy and seeing all its new timepieces. Stay tuned for more in our post-Basel issue.
