Louis Vuitton Evolves Its Tambour Timepiece

Eleven years after the watch’s debut, Louis Vuitton has updated its signature chunky Tambour with an edgy black metal-matrix composite used in Formula 1–caliber racecars. Available on either the bezel or the case, the material is hard wearing and lightweight. The new éVolution is available in a standard steel GMT model ($8,350) and a steel or rose-gold chronograph with a day-to-night indicator ($11,000 and $43,500, respectively). Its self-winding movement has a 42-hour power reserve, beats at 28,800 oscillations per hour, and is water resistant to 100 meters. It features a matte opaline dial with rhodium-plated numerals and indexes, 25 rubies (26 in the pink gold model), and a transparent back that reveals the LV monogram. (‘limelight_player_410398’);
