LOUIS VUITTON LAUNCHES THE STREET DIVER CHRONOGRAPH, THE NEW TAMBOUR WATCH WITH CHRONOGRAPH FUNCTION
The chronograph function’s performance combined with bold colours
Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking journey started in 2002 with the launch of the Tambour watch. For 20 years now, this odyssey at the heart of time has allowed a now iconic model to explore all paths of creativity. Thus, in 2021, the Tambour returned to a territory already explored in Louis Vuitton’s historical collections by appearing as a casually elegant diver’s watch named Tambour Street Diver. This timepiece, imbued with the Maison’s bold spirit, was awarded the Diver’s Watch Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
A chronograph function harmoniously embedded in the Tambour Street Diver design
Today, the Tambour Street Diver — waterproof to 100 metres and bearing the Louis Vuitton signature is enriched with additional features as a new chronograph function. Not only does the chronograph allow you to measure short-time during a competition or while practising a leisure activity, it also has the visually striking design it has been known for since its creation. The Tambour Street Diver Chronograph forges a powerful link between the sculptural shape of the Tambour case, the bold colours, and the performances of a top-level sports watch. The addition of the chronograph function ensured by a hand-wound, self-winding mechanism, led Louis Vuitton to adopt a new architecture while keeping the original sleek design and its perfect legibility. The chronograph’s two push buttons are on either side of the crown on the right of the case; the crown of the unidirectional rotating flange showing diving times is between 10 and 11am on the left side.
