Diamonds, Diamonds, And More Diamonds From The New Watch From Louis Vuitton
In celebration of the opening of Louis Vuitton Vendome, the fashion house has released a new watch collection: tambour moon.
What better way to celebrate the opening of the new Louis Vuitton shop at place Vendome in France than to adorne the already spectacular Tambour Moon Tourbillon Volant Poinçon de Genève Pavée with 145 baguette-cut diamonds, and set the movement with 106 brilliant-cut diamonds. This version of the Tambour Moon Tourbillon is also equipped with a black alligator strap with a platinum PT950 ardillon buckle, also set with diamonds.
What differentiates the new watches from the previous tambour collection, originally released in 2002, is the curved-case.
The timepieces’ movement is none other than the 160 component LV 97 calibre mechanical movement with manual winding developed at la Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. The flying tourbillon, held in place by the monogram flower cage, is set at six o’clock. Visible on the central bridge and the back of the case is the “Poinçon de Genève” certification.
Not only does the Tambour Moon Tourbillon Volant Poinçon de Genève Pavée reach the stylistic standard Louis Vuitton has set, it marks the first time a gem-set movement has received Poinçon de Genève certification.
