Louis Vuitton Tourbillion Tambour Monogram

Louis Vuitton makes a noteworthy appearance in the field of horological complications with this Tourbillon Tambour Monogram. Most parts of its movement are in gold, matching the colours of the case. The wheels and the tourbillon carriage evoke the famous LV Monogram with its four pointed or rounded petals. The hands are in hollowed gold. The interior of the case is polished and the model is distinguished by two bridges, a sapphire bridge with engraved flower and a gold and diamond bridge. Around the case, the hour-markers spell out the twelve letters of the brand name: LOUIS VUITTON. The octagonal winding-crown is set with a cognac coloured sapphire. The shagreen strap is available in several shades. Each future owner will be given the truly original opportunity to choose the gold of the tourbillon, the shape of the third wheel, the colour of the shagreen strap, and the leather of the presentation box that will house the timepiece once it is completed.
