Louis Vuitton presents the new Tambour Street Diver
The new Tambour Street Diver is everything that Louis Vuitton symbolises – high artisanal quality, multi-functionality, creative ingenuity and the freedom of expression. It continues the House’s horological journey into the unexpected, one that began in 2002 with the launch of the Louis Vuitton’s very first watch.
Crafted from a single block of metal and larger at the base than at the top, the unique shape of the Tambour was inspired by a drum. With applied horns that seamlessly integrate the case and strap, the position of the hours are indicated on the case- band by the 12 letters “L-O-U-I-S-V-U-I-T-T-O-N”. The Tambour has, in two short decades, become an iconic and instantly recognisable watch.
Like all great designs, the Tambour case is timeless and adaptable and, over the past 19 years, has taken on various forms from spectacular high jewellery masterpieces to the acclaimed Tambour Horizon connected watch, via models boasting the most complications such as 2020’s Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève.
