During an exclusive lunch at Louis Vuitton’s La Fabrique du Temps in Geneva recently, the French brand unveiled its brand-new Tambour Moon Collection featuring a totally new look. “I asked our designers to create a new Tambour Collection to celebrate its 15th anniversary,” explained Hamdi Chatti, CEO Louis Vuitton Watches and Jewelry. “The case is still a perfect circle, with no lugs or steps on the watch’s silhouette, but the profile of the case has changed from convex to concave, which gives it a slimmer look while keeping the beauty of the original design,” he notes.
All the previous convex references remain in the collection, with the addition of several stunning new Tambour Moon concave references for both men and women.
One of the timepieces debuting the new collection is the Louis Vuitton Tambour Moon Flying Tourbillon “Poinçon de Genève” – a new Haute Horlogerie creation showcasing a skeletonized tourbillon movement certified with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève. The flying tourbillon has a delicately open-worked carriage, giving the impression of extreme lightness.
