Louis Vuitton Introduces New Tambour Heures du Monde Travel Watch

John Lyon

In honor of the brand’s origins as a travel-trunk manufacturer, the new Louis Vuitton Tambour Heures du Monde is equipped with a GMT function that lets a traveler track the time in two separate time zones. The watch’s satin-finished gray dial features an off-center subdial decorated with a map of the globe. Abbreviations of the names of 24 cities corresponding to different time zones—alternately printed in white and yellow for legibility—encircle the globe, with a yellow marker indicating the time zone currently being tracked. An aperture positioned just to the right of the watch’s date window reveals a jumping-hours display that relays the current hour in the tracked time zone—differentiating day from night with numerals in white and gray, respectively. The second time zone is set via a pusher on the watch’s steel case, and a small corrector located at 4 o’clock allows the owner to compensate for daylight-saving adjustments. A crystal on the back of the $9,450 automatic watch allows observation of its rotor, which is engraved with the iconic LV logo. (us.louisvuitton.com)
