Published to mark the 20th anniversary of Louis Vuitton’s entry into luxury watchmaking, this landmark volume tells the audacious tale of the House’s renowned Tambour watches. With the goal of creating uniquely stylish timepieces, yet not succumbing to ephemeral trends, Louis Vuitton brought together the most skilled craftspeople in the Swiss tradition of fine watchmaking to work at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in Geneva. The triumphant result of this distinctive approach was the Tambour watch, launched in 2002. Essays by journalist and luxury watch expert Fabienne Reybaud explore the creative origins of the Tambour design and the history of Louis Vuitton watches, along with the precision work of La Fabrique du Temps. A catalogue of major models and exclusive insights from watch specialists make this volume a valuable resource for collectors and connoisseurs. With more than 350 illustrations and a lavish design, this book is a beautiful object in its own right, for all lovers of luxury accessories and the Louis Vuitton lifestyle.
