Tambour Automatic LV Cup Regatta

    This watch features caliber LV 171 automatic movement with a regatta function: Countdown is based on the principle of the Louis Vuitton Cup departure. The 10-minute countdown preceding the departure of a regatta is visible through a five-slit window on the dial that progressively changes from white to blue and blue to red. The movement is housed in a black-steel case featuring a transparent back and oscillating black-steel weight. Inside Information: Louis Vuitton has sponsored the Louis Vuitton Acts, the series of races prior to the America’s Cup.
