Since its launch in 2002, the Louis Vuitton Tambour has been reinterpreted numerous times. Today, it is getting a nice makeover with a refined design, an integrated bracelet, a “stepped” dial and a high-end movement.


This new 40 mm steel Drum is a unisex watch par excellence whose recessed back gives it an astonishing thinness. This illusion is reinforced by the curved drop links which also guarantee great comfort when wearing.

Special feature

A true success which required hundreds of hours of work, the dial has four different levels bringing three-dimensionality to the whole. A depth underlined by the finishes – brushed, polished and microblasted – which capture the light with the slightest movements of the wrist. Attention to detail obliges, the concave minute markers in white gold on the flange correspond to the convex ones on the hour circle.


Meticulously decorated, it is the automatic in-house caliber that makes the heart of this remarkable piece beat. Offering a precision of between -4s and +6s, it is chronometer certified by the Geneva Chronometric Observatory, a first in the watchmaking sphere.


Available in several variations.

Thickness: 8.3 mm.

50 hour power reserve.

How much

19 500 euros.
