Meet Louis Vuitton's Street Diver Collection
LV’s latest spin on the Tambour is equally at home on the street or in the water.
The watch uses LV’s idiosyncratic Tambour (or drum) case, which has been a feature of the house’s watchmaking for two decades, and features an inner rotating bezel with a 60-minute timer scale.
Rotation of the bezel is controlled by the watch’s second crown, positioned at two o’clock on the watch’s caseband, which allows the wearer to zero the bezel’s stylised ‘V’ to the minute hand and start a timer count, whether that’s for a dive or how long since you placed your food order.
Screwdown crowns and the Tambour’s give the watch 100m of water resistance while a quick-change strap system means the watch can be tailored to any occasion.
Three 44mm automatics (Skyline Blue, Neon Black and Black Blaze) and one 39.5mm quartz model (Pacific White) will drop in early April with prices to follow.
In other watch news, Fears’ latest watch takes a single goldsmith three months to make by hand.
