This new Louis Vuitton Tambour Automatic Chronograph Flyback is characterized by strong colors including a bright yellow center hand which reads the chronograph seconds elapsed on a dual circular scale, reminiscent of old aircraft gauges I seem to remember. Although I have featured flybacks many times here on Perpetuelle, here is a quick refresher of how the function works: a running chronograph can be reset and instantly restarted by pressing the reset button (lower right); the seconds hand will immediately return to the starting position and begin timing again — the visual is that of a hand that “flies back” to the starting position. I’d guess that the flyback on this dual-scale layout is particularly eyecatching. Note also the rubber-coated crown and the dual-leather strap — calfskin with the horizontal yellow stitch, fused with alligator. Good looking watch — I am a fan of Louis Vuitton horology. I’ve also included a neat short video demonstrating some of the Louis Vuitton watch strap-making process.
