Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air
The new Tambour Spin Time Air collection includes seven watches, for men and women.
First introduced in 2009, the Tambour Spin Time definitely sets the Jumping Hour in modernity. The watch offers an entirely new and playful way of reading the time using twelve rotating cubes to display the hours. Every 60 minutes, two of them spin around instantly. The hour therefore ends with a cube revealing its neutral side, making way for the next hour, which is displayed by another cube revealing its distinctive side. The whole is made possible thaks to an exclusive and patented calibre developed in 2009.
Louis Vuitton presents this year the Tambour Spin Time Air. This collection of seven watches, three for men and four for women is dressed in new finery while remaining faithful to the Spin Time concept.

The unique self-winding movement has evolved this year thanks to the talents of the master watchmakers at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton, making way for the calibre LV88 which offers a 35-hour power reserve. The principle remains the same, but this new calibre is more ethereal, the cubes that display the time appearing to float in mid-air.

The mechanism is lodged at the centre of the case between two sapphire crystals, below a motif, the iconic LV signature for men’s versions and two superimposed Monogram flowers, one rounded and one pointed, for women’s watches. The cubes have become veritable satellites, suspended between the calibre and the case. The hidden side of the cubes, as well as the oscillating weight, can be seen through the transparent back.

Each of the seven new Tambour Spin Time Air watches is housed in a 42.5 mm white gold case water-resistant to 50 metres. The watches are available with a variety of central patterns and gemstone settings, in addition to the cubes which become a true outlet for creative expression. Each side – set with diamonds or coloured stones, lacquered or satin-brushed – is unique, displaying the time in its own way.
