As a recognized high-end brand, Louis Vuitton continued to incorporate mechanical complications: this year, it was presented a new luxury watch for Louis Vuitton: The Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève. Available with and without diamonds, the timepiece is run by a powerful mechanical movement offering 80 hours of power reserve. Design Limited Edition brings to you the best of luxury lifestyle: take a look and get impressed by this supreme craftsmanship piece with a unique design!
Louis Vuitton’s new watch design takes a future-forward beat. Featuring high tech upgrades and a modern signature watch design, the Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève is sharply designed and finely executed.
The timepiece exhibits a notable level of attention to detail in styling and craft. As a craftsmanship masterpiece, it also comprises Louis Vuitton‘s complicated watchmaking with a confident, contemporary design combined with a first-rate calibre.
According to Louis Vuitton master watchmaker Michel Navas: “We wanted to create a watch that was more fluid and lighter – one that easily marries the wrist. (…) We use carbon layers stacked with a random chance of fibre orientation.”, producing a charming effect that contrasts with the lugs and highlights the modern watch case’s exclusive geometry.
The construction of the case of this expensive watch is really complex: the exterior is a proprietary carbon-fibre composite called CarboStratum which begins as 100 sheets of carbon fibre, which are then heated and compressed in a mould to form randomly layered strata of material. The case also increases in size at the horizontal axis and diminishes at the vertical, giving it a somewhat oblate profile. The timepiece by Louis Vuitton is a big watch with a streamlined and is crafted from ultra-lightweight materials commonly used in aeronautics. It is also created in a diamond-set version.
