LOUIS VUITTON TAMBOUR SPIN TIME AIR TIMEPIECE COLLECTION FILM
Louis Vuitton's newest watch boasts an innovative system of rotating cubes set within a transparent face.
August 5, 2019
Unveiling the Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air watch collection with an all-new caliber allowing for an ethereal display as if time were suspended in mid-air.
As playful as it is technical, the unrivaled, innovative Spin Time concept provides a fun way of reading the time thanks to an exclusive and patented caliber developed a decade ago. Instead of a central hand, these watches use twelve rotating cubes to display the hours. Every 60 minutes, the corresponding cube spins to reveal the next hour, while the previous hour simultaneously rotates to hide its numeral. This year, the master watchmakers at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton have further evolved the unique self-winding movement to be more even more ethereal, in that the cubes displaying the hour appear to float in mid-air.
These cubes have become veritable satellites, suspended between the caliber and the case, whose hidden sides can be seen through the transparent back along with the oscillating weight.
Each of the seven new Tambour Spin Time Air watches is housed in a white gold case, available with a variety of central pattern in gemstones settings, while the cubes themselves are set with diamonds or colored stones, lacquered or satin-brushed.
