Redesigned after two decades of existence, the incomparably curvaceous watch from the Parisian fashion house embraces the warm reflections of gold to dress its refined silhouette, from head to toe or in cleverly placed touches.

The personality of a watch, its instant identification when recognized on the wrist with a simple glance, is the first mission that every designer sets himself. This is typically the case for the Tambour watch, born in 2002 and the emblem of Louis Vuitton watchmaking, whose incomparable curves were redesigned after celebrating its 20th anniversary. Made more ergonomic thanks in particular to the absence of lugs allowing the metal bracelet to merge seamlessly with the case, its refined morphology nonetheless retains the physical assets and visual codes that have made it such a success and, after the two steel models unveiled in 2023, embraces the warm reflections of gold with three new pieces: Tambour Gold.

The generously curved sides of its 40mm-diameter, 8.3mm-thick case feature the capital letters of the Parisian Maison’s name, inscribed in polished relief. Available in rose or yellow gold, or in steel with a few golden touches here and there (fluted crown stamped with the initials LV, bezel as thin as a wedding band, central links of the bracelet, and triangular hour-markers, luminescent Arabic numerals and dauphine-style hands), the case houses the LFT023 caliber. This self-winding movement, designed by La Fabrique du Temps in collaboration with Le Cercle des Horlogers, is equipped with a micro-rotor, vibrates at the standard 4hz frequency and delivers a 50-hour power reserve. What’s more, its precision is guaranteed by the Geneva Chronometric Observatory. The colors of the faces, on which the hour and minute displays and the small seconds counter (at 6 o’clock) unfold in concentric circles, are harmoniously matched to the metal colors of these three Tambour Gold: chocolate brown, immaculate white or silver-gray.
