Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon

Louis Vuitton’s Enigmatic Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon

No contributor

At Watches & Wonders Miami last weekend, we had the chance to see in person a new timepiece from Louis Vuitton: The Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon. It marks Louis Vuitton’s decisive step into a new chapter of high watchmaking and craftsmanship.

Developed in the 19th century, the mysterious movement makes the hands of the watch appear to levitate. Adaption of the mysterious movement creates an optical illusion combined with a flying tourbillon escapement. This fascinating illusion is made possible thanks to a mechanism of sapphire crystals.

Arranged in a linear form, the co-axial double barrel is concealed by the LV monogram flower situated at 12 o’clock. This lightweight creation features two stylistic effects which make the watch appear to float in mid-air: the absences of connection between the winding crown and double barrel, and the choice of a fling tourbillon, adorned with the monogram flower.

All within platinum casing and mounted on a black alligator strap, the new Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon by Louis Vuitton is a contemporary design that boasts an element of an enigma.
