The Tambour has been the main driver of Louis Vuitton's high watchmaking narrative since its debut in 2002. The distinctive round case resembling a drum has been home to everything from the groundbreaking Spin Time complication where all 12 hours are indicated by rotating cubes to the Tambour Horizon smartwatch. While this year's rendition, the Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poincon de Genève, may not be its most complicated, the tweaks made to the design and material are significant enough to qualify it as a new chapter for the model.
The 46mm round case is visibly more elongated than usual, with its surface featuring continuous curvy patterns. The lugs are set right inside the case for a coherent architecture that evokes pure masculinity. A domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal shields the dial.
