News from Dubai…
This new Tambour diver from Louis Vuitton will hit Louis Vuitton boutiques in January 2011. A refresh of a model first introduced in 2005, the watch comes in a few combinations: steel case/black dial (men’s 44mm and women’s 39.5mm sizes), steel case/blue dial, and a limited edition pink gold case/blue dial/red bezel. The more discerning eye may appreciate the skeletonized hour and minutes hands, as well as the “dive flag” motif for the small seconds subdial at the 6 o’clock position. There is also a unidirection bezel which is set with “LOUIS VUITTON” letters in rubber to make for easier grasping of the bezel — if you look closely you can see this in the photo below.
