Louis Vuitton launches the new TamborGreyTitanium watch, designed by art director KimJones for the Louis Vuitton men’s autumn-winter 2018 show. This watch is inspired by rock climbing, combined with a unique gray-orange color scheme, reinterpreting the design code of the Tambour series born in 2002.
The case is made of titanium with a diameter of 41.5 mm and is equipped with polished lugs and crown. The gray dial is printed with a ‘V’ pattern from Gaston-Louis Vuitton suitcases and is decorated with fluorescent hour markers and hands. The vivid orange hue is designed to pay tribute to the technical specifications of outdoor clothing, which is also one of the central themes of this fashion show.
The strap is made of fine metallic crocodile leather, just like some bags in Louis Vuitton products. Louis Vuitton pays tribute to leather goods tools, which rely on traditional expertise to make the ardent hopes of modern customers come true. The new watch uses a patented design that allows the wearer to easily replace the strap.
This unique timepiece provided by the Louis Vuitton LaFabriqueduTemps workshop draws inspiration from fashion trends and leather goods, while loyal to the spirit of travel, highlighting the coherence of this series of timepieces. This watch is equipped with a self-winding movement that can run for 42 hours with precision. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
