Combining cutting-edge technologies with luxe aesthetics, Louis Vuitton has revealed the new Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève. Designed and crafted by master watchmakers at la Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton, the timepiece was produced by layering 100 sheets of carbon at random, then compressing them into powerful curves which make each model unique. Encased in ultra-lightweight, resistant technical materials used in aeronautics, the elegant 46mm timepiece is fitted for maximum durability.

Rather than a skeletonised design, the Tambour boasts an open-worked watch face with a large LV logo centered on the dial. The case’s stretched, elongated shape is inspired by the Möbius strip. Carbon overlays fit over a grade 5 titanium base, while lugs made from micro-machined titanium are set in the case. Controlled by a flying tourbillon, the watch features an innovative mechanical movement with 80 hours of power reserve. The prestigious Poinçon de Genève seal certifying craftsmanship and reliability is displayed at 6 ‘o clock, affirming Louis Vuitton’s seat in technical excellence.

Take a closer look at the Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève in the images above. A diamond-encrusted version of the watch will also be available alongside the regular black colorway on Louis Vuitton’s website.

For more timepieces, Breitling and Bentley celebrate the Continental GT Mulliner Convertible with a limited edition stainless steal watch.
