The latest addition to the LV range – the Tambour Heures du Monde watch – is a must-have accessory for the avid traveller or businessman. The timepiece transcends 24 time zones and comes with an aggressive, sophisticated and elegant design that will appeal to the contemporary gentleman.
Its unique asymmetrical face is wrapped in a steel case and an anti-reflective sapphire glass casing. The satin-finished grey dial features an off-centre subdial decorated with a map of the globe. Additionally, there abbreviations of the names of 24 cities corresponding to different time zones, which are subtle but legible in white and yellow. Day and night are differentiated in white and grey respectively and an aperture positioned to the right of the watch’s date window points to the current hour in the tracked time zone.
A convenient feature allows for a second time zone to be set via a pusher on the watch’s steel case. There is also a small corrector that allows for compensation of daylight-saving adjustments. The $9,450-watch boasts a clean, refined and masculine design with an observable rotor engraved with the iconic LV logo.
The alligator strap complements the severe but sophisticated layout of the case. Subtle yellow stitching adds a note of whimsy and edge to the rigid design. In terms of mechanics – the infamous LV 101 Automatic calibre has been incorporated for unparalleled precision. The watch exhibits a 40-hour power reserve as well as 50m water resistance, bringing together quality, convenience and luxury.
The GMT function of the Tambour Heures du Monde watch emphasises the origin of the brand as a travel-trunk manufacturer. It is an exceptional timepiece that encompasses the necessities of a watch of its calibre as well as contemporary elegance and refined class – a true statement accessory for the modern man.
