Louis Vuitton's exclusive timepiece for travellers

If you are a traveller at heart with a flair for stylish timepieces on your wrist, Louis Vuitton has just the right accessory for you. The new TAMBOUR HEURES DU MONDE has been designed keeping you in mind. If you are wearing this, a flick of your wrist will give the exact time wherever in the world you may be.

The very first thing to notice in this timepiece is the off-centre map of the world on the dial with its light relief and satin engraving designed to highlight the different continents. Surrounding it, the initials of 24 cities  corresponding to different time zones  are alternately written in yellow or white for enhanced legibility. Simply activate the push button located at 2 o’clock to position the little yellow mobile marker (which circles the map of the world) under the time zone whose time you would like to see displayed in the large window next to the date. 

Another one of its many notable features is that the diurnal and nocturnal times are distinguished by the colour of their numbers: white for day and grey for night. The function is incredibly simple to use, even when you need to adjust its settings, as a discreet corrector positioned at 4 o’clock on the middle allows you to set the time in the zones (for example, when the clocks go forward or back).

The elegant grey dial features a vertical satin finish as a graphic echo of the time zones. In addition, the reverse is just as beautiful as the front, because the transparent back of the 44-mm diameter steel instrument reveals an LV 101 automatic calibre whose oscillating weight bears the LV signature cut into the metal. Presented on a grey alligator bracelet featuring a black calfskin chape with yellow stitching and a saddle stitch finish, the case is watertight to 50 metres. The dial comes in 44 mm steel case with transparent back and anti-reflective sapphire glass.

Don't hold yourself back, go for it - flaunt it as you travel the world cherishing memories and knowing exactly what time you created it.
