Louis Vuitton‘s timepieces often skew minimalist but are occasionally enlivened by bold hues in line with the striking hues seen in collections overseen by men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh. The latest Tambour watch is indicative of this mindset, as the Tambour Damier Graphite Race draws direct influence from Abloh’s splashy apparel designs.

Sporty touches come through on the fluorescent-accented black strap, which can be swapped for a bold tonal green version, contrasting a sense of athleticism against the graphite-hued PVD-coated steel case and smoked grey sapphire glass caseback. Graphite Damier patterns grace the dial alongside more hits of bright green, a nod to Abloh’s head-turning runway presentations. “V” — for “Vuitton” — also appears on the face, further juxtaposing statement styling against the timepiece’s traditional mechanism.

The new Tambour Damier Graphite Race watches are available as a 41.5 mm diameter automatic and 46 mm diameter chronograph on Louis Vuitton’s website for prices beginning at $5,750 USD.

A similar sense of striking appeal recently informed Louis Vuitton’s tapestry bandana set and striking silver-toned LV Trainer.
