Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time
By giving you a new way of reading the time, the Tambour Spin Time collection makes contingent time a moment of pure pleasure. To achieve this, it is introducing two new, highly innovative and playful watches this year.

Tambour Spin Time GMT
A men's watch in white gold, size XL (44mm), paired with a leather strap and driven by a self-winding mechanical calibre.
Resolutely high-tech and contemporary, with a clean, elegant design, this Tambour model features an innovation in watchmaking that is easy to understand and easy to use ! Its name, Spin Time, evokes the rotation of the stems that display the hours.
Calibre LV 119
The Swiss-made LV119 calibre displays the jumping hours in an original new way. It also features GMT, a date window at 4.30 and the LeVel Up system.
The secret of its hour display is the simultaneous rotation of two of the twelve visible staffs (current hour / next hour). At the end of each is a cube alternately showing a numbered or neutral side, the latter being engraved with the famous and historical Louis Vuitton “V”. The open design of the dial affords a view of the internal mechanism, with its 12 ingenious components in the form of a Maltese cross, incorporated into each microscopic rotating shaft. These turn each staff and its cube by a quarter rotation, twice per half-day. With its light, airy appearance, this movement has a solid, durable architecture.
To conclude, this original and extremely reliable construction allows for an unusual, creative 24-hour display, and with its yellow GMT hours hand, also displays a second time zone.

Tambour Spin Time Joaillerie
A women's watch in white gold, size L (39.5mm), driven by a self-winding calibre.
With its playful, poetic and jewelled design, the Tambour Spin Time Joaillerie displays the hours in diamonds and the minutes with a hand designed to resemble a pen nib. The dial is either set with black and white diamonds or finished in a deep black lacquer. The effect is a sky studded with stars, a playful reference to the flowers of the Louis Vuitton Monogram. It comes with a white alligator strap for everyday use, or a black lizard skin dress version.
Like the Tambour Spin Time GMT, this watch features an innovative jumping hours display as well as the LeVel Up system. This unique watch made in 18 carat white gold, and set with black and white diamonds, comes in a highly contemporary size that will appeal to fans of fine mechanical watches. The current hour is displayed via a cylinder set with black diamonds in the section of the dial studded with white diamonds (above 9 and 3 o'clock) and vice versa for the lower section.

Innovation & Patent
The Tambour Spin Time GMT and Joaillerie feature the innovative LeVel Up system which will appeal to all those who appreciate true technical mastery. Our watch designers at the Louis Vuitton workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds pooled their talents to develop the Spin Time calibre and the LeVel Up crown stem lifting system. Inspired by the transfer box in a car, LeVel Up makes it easier to move the crown and also makes the watch more comfortable on the wrist. It consists of a group of toothed wheels engaged with an internal toothed wheel, controlling winding as well as date and hour adjustments.
True to its founding spirit, Louis Vuitton makes watches that combine excellence, innovation and originality for the benefit of people who love travel and adventure. The watchmakers of La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in Geneva use their mastery of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology to reinvent the watchmaking of tomorrow.Find out more >
