Louis Vuitton Releases The 2.0 Version of The Tambour Watch, In All Black


In 2002, Louis Vuitton made its watchmaking debut with the Tambour, a watch whose aesthetic appeal lies in its simplistic, perfectly symmetrical, circle case. Fifteen years later, several improvements have been made to the watches’ inner workings, still, what remains unchanged is the perfect circle, engraved with the fashion house’s twelve letters on the contour like the twelve hours on the dial.

What better way to celebrate the 15 year anniversary than to release not one but two all black versions of the Tambour watch.

While the petite second version of the Tambour has a modest 41.5mm case, the Tambour chronograph features a crown overmolded with black rubber, an imposing 46mm case, and both the date and chronograph complications. Both watches have a stainless steel case with black PVD coating, a mate black dial with contrasting anthracite V, and the gaston V at 12 o’clock. The hands on both watches are half skeleted with glow in the dark Superluminova. The traps on both Tambours are interchangeable and are fitted with Louis Vuitton’s patented system.

The all black monochrome design is a testament to its unflinching power and performance over 15 years. The Tambour petite second and Tambour Chronograph is the perfect watch for the man who understands the true value behind a subtle, sophisticated, contemporary work of art.
