Louis Vuitton Tambour Damier Graphite Race
Energy and creativity come together in this new Tambour timepiece, an unprecedented interpretation of the iconic Louis Vuitton watch.
The Tambour Damier Graphite Race is a sporty-chic timepiece combining modern design and watchmaking know-how.
A creative cornerstone of 21st
century watchmaking, the Tambour pursues its legendary adventure with true audacity, while remaining faithful to its resoundingly successful original shape.
Its boldness now features a double contrast. Firstly, between the dark grey of the graphite PVD coated steel case and the polished steel horns.
Secondly, on the dial, between the Graphite Damier adorning the background, the polished indexes and the fluorescent green accents, a reference to the strikingly intense colour palette of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh.
Its identity is preserved through House codes. The architectural dial features a V for Vuitton against a Graphite Damier patterned background.
As for watchmaking craftmanship, it remains visible and evident through a smoked-grey sapphire glass caseback, subtly revealing a traditional mechanism.
This new watch is available in two versions: a 41.5 mm diameter automatic model and an extreme 46 mm diameter chronograph. Both designs are fitted with a black or fluorescent green rubber strap that can be switched according to one’s whim thanks to an exclusive Louis Vuitton-patented interchangeable strap system common
to all Tambour watches.
Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has brought unique designs to the world, combining innovation with style, always aiming for the finest quality. Today, the House remains faithful to the spirit of its founder, Louis Vuitton, who invented a genuine “Art of Travel”
through luggage, bags and accessories which were as creative as they were elegant and practical. Since then, audacity has shaped the story of Louis Vuitton. Faithful to its heritage, Louis Vuitton has opened its doors to architects, artists and designers across the years, all the while developing disciplines such as ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, watches, jewellery and fragrance. These carefully created products are testament to Louis Vuitton’s commitment to fine craftsmanship.
