In 2002, the Tambour watch marked Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking debut. 15 years later, the Tambour celebrates through a new version: the Tambour Moon. By toying the existing shape from convex to concave whilst playing with subtle branding and a luxurious finish, Louis Vuitton created a new design which is both sensual and playful but also sophisticated and unique. This design was then used to create a new family of mechanical watches as well as the first truly luxury smartwatch: Tambour Horizon. The Tambour Horizon features a unique element of innovation: a physical 24-hour GMT ring which surrounds the display is referenced to at all times by a digital interface which sits within. This allows the watch to be recognisable when off. This hybrid digital-to-physical link is then also empowered by the idea of visualising your day at a glance using technology to feed information within a defined framework of 24 hours. This innovative feature together with the exclusive flight tracking function, the personalization watch faces features and the Louis Vuitton “City Guide” app, inspired by the brand’s own heritage, makes this object an innovative timepiece for travelers in a connected world.
