In his Fall 2014 fashion show, Nicolas Ghesquière paid tribute to the legendary Louis Vuitton trunk with a piece of fine jewelry, “La Petite Malle”, to wear as a distinctive pendant.

For his very first women’s collection, Nicolas Ghesquière specifically designed miniature trunks to wear as a minaudière bag and as a refined 18 carat yellow gold pendant, as seen here.

With its distinguished character, the Tambour eVolution opens an unprecedented chapter in Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking story. A new masculine interpretation of the Tambour, this timepiece with taut lines and a high-tech silhouette – encased using the innovative material “Black MMC”. The Tambour eVolution is a strong aesthetical departure from the classic tambour, rewriting the codes of Louis Vuitton’s iconic watch.
Designed for the modern, urban, globetrotting man, the Tambour eVolution is the definitive evocation of everyday performance. Available in a GMT three-hand version and a GMT chronograph, in steel or pink gold, with a day/night indicator, the Tambour eVolution displays its modern sensibilities entirely in line with Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking traditions, which have always combined a sense of elegance, a passion for travel and a quest for precision.
Design: a new page in an on-going story
More than a change, an evolution. Since its creation in 2002, the Tambour watch has been distinguished by its uniquely shaped case, eight-sided crown and side engraving with the twelve letters of Louis Vuitton. The Tambour eVolution is ushering in a new era of confident modernity. Its lines are edgy, less rounded and highly masculine.
The eight-sided crown has made way for an ergonomic screw crown with nine grooves for enhanced grip. Featuring a Black MMC flat-edged insert with the Monogram logo, this new crown is flanked by a large “V” on the edge of the case, as if Louis Vuitton’s twelve engraved letters had taken flight and merged into a single concentrated letter.
Restrained and competitive, the Tambour eVolution draws on the energy of its dual-material assembly: a steel case and Black MMC bezel or a Black MMC case and pink gold bezel. The highly architectural design offers a rarely equalled feeling of power and technical expertise. Its imposing diameter, 43mm for the GMT three-hand version and 45mm for the GMT chronograph version, underscores this strong identity. This beautiful presence is paired with perfect ergonomics when worn.
The change can also be seen on the dial, in black color. The GMT’s deep red arrow-shaped hand indicating the time in the second time zone adds a bold, instantly visible and energising touch; as does the circular day/night indicator positioned at six o’clock and the wide date window at three o’clock.
Another new feature that highlights its personality: the Tambour eVolution is the first watch from Louis Vuitton created solely with a metal strap.
Technique: performance materialised
The Tambour eVolution is high-tech not only at first glance, but also to its core. The use of Black MMC – a Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) – propels the Tambour eVolution into the world of very high technology. Used primarily in the aerospace industry and the highly competitive world of Formula 1, this composite material presents exceptional hard-wearing and lightweight qualities.
Created using a complex chemical process, Black MMC has been used to manufacture the bezel in the steel version and in the design of the case in the pink gold version. The combination of Black MMC with satin steel or pink gold gives the Tambour eVolution a dual identity combining tradition and modernity.
The Tambour eVolution’s unique technical expertise can also be seen on its dial with three different concentric surface treatments: blueing around the edge, a satin sunray and then a matte opaline finish in the centre. The rhodium-plated and finely polished applied figures and indexes have been subtly designed at a diagonal seven-degree angle to optimally capture the light. This dial is also visible through a double-sided anti-reflective sapphire glass.
In terms of calibre, the GMT day/night version and the GMT day/night chronograph are respectively fitted with LV71 and LV92 movements. These two high-precision self-winding mechanical Manufacture movements have a 42-hour power reserve and beat at a rate of 28,800 oscillations per hour. The oscillating weight with the Louis Vuitton signature that can be seen through the transparent back is cut out to reveal the LV logo .

In 2010, Louis Vuitton offered a novel way of reading the time with the Tambour Spin Time collection. Its secret: the hours are revealed by cubes which rotated simultaneously to show either a neutral or numbered face.
Building on this now iconic movement, Louis Vuitton is developing a timepiece with a new reference dedicated to Regattas: the Tambour Spin Time Regatta.
A few Regatta rules
Great importance has always been given to the time which precedes the start of a Regatta race. Before the start of the Regatta, a time period set by the organiser of the event allows the skippers and crew to position themselves as best possible on the starting line – called the Lay Line – depending on the wind and forces present.
For a long time, the countdown chosen for major challenges such as the America’s Cup was ten minutes. However, the arrival of sport catamarans with AC45 wing sails has allowed the development of those challenges, making them both more dynamic and more spectacular, and thereby encouraging the public to become actively involved in the event. These highly manœuvrable boats will be replaced by even more impressive AC72 Catamarans in 2013 for the Louis Vuitton Cup and the America’s Cup.
The race rules are now as follows: five minutes before the start, the crews are alerted with a first signal; the countdown begins. Two minutes before the start, another signal means that they can enter the starting zone – this is when they must manage their speed, ideally crossing the line at full speed, just after the starting “cannon fire”. Boats crossing the line too early are penalised.
Tambour Spin Time Regatta
A distinctly nautical example of pure watchmaking, the Tambour Spin Time Regatta is set in a white gold case with an alligator strap and features a red push button to activate the Regatta complication, positioned at 8 o’clock.
Once on board, a simple push of the button and the “Chrono” indication that appears in the 12 o’clock aperture disappears to be replaced by the word “Régate”. At the same time, the chronograph’s 30-minute counter will leap forward and move to the 5-minute countdown displayed in red in the counter. This way the minutes before departure are taken into account in the final measured time.
As if by magic, five cubes on the right of the dial will begin to spin from blue to red, each indicating the elapsing countdown. This unprecedented and first-class complication developed by the Maison Louis Vuitton’s watchmakers will help skippers, in the heat of the action, to keep time of the five minutes before the race and the minutes remaining before they must cross the starting line.
A glimpse of the chronograph’s complication can be partially viewed through the blue-toned sapphire dial, subtly revealing its incredible sophistication. The watch designers’ quest to tame time has led them to create a sophisticated mechanism capable of giving density to minutes, which always seem to stand still when the countdown is on.
Tambour Spin Time Regatta is available at Louis Vuitton for approx. US$60,000.
