In 2010, Louis Vuitton introduced an innovative and interesting new time reading method: Tambour Spin Time, the secret lies in the beating cubes instead of the traditional hour hand Display the time at the time mark position.
Love sailing, love Tambour Spin Time
On the basis of this exquisite movement structure, La Fabrique du Temps, a watchmaking workshop under Louis Vuitton’s advanced watchmaking workshop, further developed and manufactured the same series of nautical watches—Tambour Spin Time Regatta. This fun-filled movement has two important functions: timekeeping and a five-minute countdown to the regatta — five flip cubes will show the passage of time.
According to the latest format of the America’s Cup regatta, the pre-race countdown has been changed to 5 minutes. The Tambour Time Spin Nautical Watch helps the sailor make full use of these five minutes to adjust the hull to the best starting position. The 30-minute countdown hand will start to move to the right, and the 5-minute countdown cube will slowly flip in turn, turning from blue to red. This way of counting can count the countdown before the game into the total duration.
Following the platinum model launched in 2012, Louis Vuitton launched a limited edition Tambour Time Rotating Rose Gold Nautical Wrist this year. This new rose gold version features a crown and buttons covered with rubber and an elegant dark gray alligator strap. Through the pale gray transparent sapphire surface, the movement and the Geneva wave pattern on the surface can be seen faintly.
