Louis Vuitton launches the new Tambour Moon mysterious flying tourbillon watch, opening a new chapter in the brand’s fine watchmaking adventure. Following the minute repeater watch, skeleton tourbillon Geneva imprint watch and Spin Time watch, the Tambour Moon mysterious flying tourbillon watch further demonstrates Louis Vuitton’s superb watchmaking skills.
By changing the principle of the mysterious movement, adopting a linear layout, combined with the flying tourbillon escapement, the Tambour Moon mysterious flying tourbillon watch marks a decisive step for Louis Vuitton to the wonderful world of fine watchmaking. The mysterious movement was developed in the 19th century, and traditionally makes the movement seem to be suspended. The use of ingenious crystal wafer mechanism makes this charming visual illusion possible, and the commonly used material has now become sapphire crystal.
With a linear layout, the coaxial dual barrel is hidden under the Monogram Flower at 12 o’clock, and the central gear carrying the hour and minute hands and the tourbillon frame at 6 o’clock seem to float in the air. The winding crown is not connected to the double barrel. The flying tourbillon frame rotates once every 60 seconds and is decorated with a hollow Monogram Flower, which further enhances the watch’s ethereal and light texture.
The 45mm diameter Tambour Moon concave platinum case is equipped with a LV 110 manual winding movement with a modern design and a power reserve of up to 8 days. The watch is equipped with a black alligator strap. The Tambour Moon mysterious flying tourbillon watch is developed and manufactured by the workshop of La Fabrique du Temps of Louis Vuitton, and provides customized services for watch lovers: the back of the tourbillon frame can be engraved with the customer’s initials.
