Haute couture or haute horlogerie?
I’m no Fashionista, but what can I say, I’m a fan of Louis Vuitton’s Tambour watches. The design is very unique, and even though the Louis Vuitton fashion influence is strong, their watches are more than just a fancy case around a cheap movement (a la Gucci watches, for example). The Tambour’s modicum of eccentricity is what I like most. This particular model is a straight-3 chrono with tachymeter and date function. Price – about $6,000, it will be available June 2011. What about you? Is this just another overpriced fashion watch, or do you also have some appreciation for Louis Vuitton’s timepieces?
