Louis Vuitton Launches New Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon

By Paul Joseph

Iconic French fashion house Louis Vuitton has added a brand new timepiece to its popular Tambour family of watches.

Called the Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève, the new watch is billed as combining cutting-edge watchmaking techniques with ultra-stylish design.

The timepiece has been created using an innovative technology that layers more than 100 sheets of carbon at random and compresses them to create those impressive curves. As a result, each model is totally unique.

The 46mm case also gets a grade 5 titanium base for maximum durability and 18-karat white gold lugs. The watch features an open-worked watch face with a large Louis Vuitton logo at the centre of the dial and a tourbillon at 9 o’clock.

The timepiece is powered by the LV 108 hand-wound caliber which has been developed and assembled by La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in Geneva. The Poinçon de Genève seal certifies craftsmanship and reliability and can be seen at 6 ‘o clock and on the caseback.

The brand has also created a diamond-encrusted version of the watch which will be available alongside the regular version.

Founded in France in 1854, Louis Vuitton has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned luxury fashion labels.
