With this smartwatch, Louis Vuitton continues to explore the world of leather goods with 12 distinct new dials to reflect the different zodiac signs. Illustrations of the ox, rat, tiger, rabbit, snake, dragon, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig are placed on the face of the dial over a red and gold LV Monogram background. The symbols are represented with an animated version of the zodiacs, bringing forth a light-hearted tone to a tech-sophisticated watch. The Tambour Horizon features a signature LV Monogram brown leather strap alongside its branded dial in a dark bronze. Straps are interchangeable between a black leather LV Monogram strap and a red LV Monogram sports strap.
Maintaining the similar features of previous models, the watch comes in a polished, stainless steel casing, incorporating sapphire glass on the 24-hour ring. The Louis Vuitton logo can be seen prominently etched into the sapphire glass on the caseback. Water-resistant up to 30 meters and includes a battery life of 22 hours, the watch is also compatible with Android 4.3+ and iOS 9+ smartphones.
The Lunar New Year 2021 Tambour Watch model also readies itself for future jet-setting with a travel watch face titled “My Flight”, a city guide dedicated travel app, a 24-hour watch face with 24 time zones, weather and temperature monitor, and step counter.
Further information on its price and availability have yet to be announced, but it is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
