Watch Wednesday

Louis Vuitton Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon

A transparent mysterious watch that appears to defy gravity.

Resembling the clean lines of Star Trek’s Enterprise, the new Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon from Louis Vuitton updates the 19th-century “mysterious” concept to propose a modern-day movement that appears to be floating in space. Moving sapphire crystal discs create the optical illusion that plays an important technical part in the mechanics of the watch, magically making the inner workings vanish before your very eyes. The mesmerizing gleam of the spinning mechanical elements brings to mind the interlocking initials and fleur-de-lis symbols of the iconic “LV” monogram. And, like the iconic Vuitton luggage, the back of the tourbillon cage can be personalized with the wearer’s own initials. The piece, no doubt, elevates Louis Vuitton into the stratosphere of high watchmaking.
