Created in 2002, the Tambour marked Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking debut. Numerous variations have since been released for both men and women, all while retaining its distinctive features. Now widely considered an icon, it is an ambassador for Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking prowess. Fifteen years after its creation the Tambour has not been replaced, but celebrated through a new version that respects its essence, the Tambour Moon.
This new expression of the Tambour for men and women adheres to the aesthetic codes that made the original such a resounding success; a beautifully rounded case recalling the shape of a drum, applied horns to preserve the perfect circle of the case, the twelve Louis Vuitton letters engraved on the edge, a clever play on light and reflections, and the singular shape of the case that widens at its base so that it can sit comfortably on the wrist.
