As the most modern design in time-hopping watches, the Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time watch, which appeared ten years ago, astounded the entire watchmaking world with a unique time display method. This time, in keeping with its unique concept, the series was re-launched with a new image of Tambour Spin Time Air, introducing a total of 7 designs, including three men’s watches and four women’s watches.
The Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air watch replaces the central hand with 12 rotating cubes to display the hours. Every 60 minutes, two adjacent cubes are rotated simultaneously as a group. One returns to the side with the same color as the other cubes, indicating the end of the previous hour, and the other shows the side with a different color from the other cubes. One hour starts. With an exclusive patented movement developed in 2009, this innovative design concept has created a new way of showing time, which is fun and interesting, and highlights the connotation of science and technology. This year, the watchmakers at the La Fabriquedu Temps workshop in Geneva have reinvented their unique self-winding movement with extraordinary talent to create a LV88 movement that provides a 35-hour power reserve. This new movement is loyal to the original design concept and displays time in 12 floating cubes, which are more elegant and smart.
Case is made of sapphire crystal on both sides of the case, the movement is in the center, and is decorated with Louis Vuitton’s iconic elements: the classic LV letter logo for men and the Monogram Flower floral pattern with pointed round shapes. Each cube is like a satellite, suspended between the movement and the case. At the same time, through the transparent case back, the other side of the cube and the pendulum can be seen at a glance.
Seven new Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air timepieces are available in white gold with a diameter of 42.5 mm and a water resistance of 50 meters. In addition to cubes, each watch is also paired with various forms of center motifs and gem inlays, demonstrating the spirit of creativity. Each side-whether embellished with diamonds or colored gems, with a lacquered or satin finish-is uniquely crafted to show the time in a special way.
Seven chic Tambour Spin Time Air watches are a tribute to the innovative idea of turning reading time into pure fun for 10 years.
