Louis Vuitton Channels America’s Cup Speed Sailing

The modern, high-speed, catamaran-driven version of the America’s Cup has imposed many changes on the complex rules of sailboat racing, but it has not reduced the vital importance of winning the start. The Louis Vuitton Tambour America’s Cup automatic regatta ($11,600), while it may not actually put you on a boat in the race, will help you win should you happen to be racing your own yacht. Central to the watch is the reliable five-minute countdown function, which legibly ticks off the minutes to the start with a colored bar display and the seconds with a large counter. Even if you are a traditional wooden boat sailor, the black rubberized case of this Tambour will bring a taste of America’s Cup technology to your wrist. (917.822.2294, www.louisvuitton.com)
