The new version of Louis Vuitton’s emblematic Tambour watch is inspired by the House’s iconic Damier Graphite canvas, but Virgil Abloh’s influence is hard to miss, given the familiar combination of fluorescent green and black.
LV eschews its minimalist approach this time around, opting for an athletic colorway that evokes Abloh’s bold menswear designs. The black strap arrives with eye-catching green accents, and can be swapped out for an even bolder green version. These same green hues appear on the dial.
The Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s V signature enlightens the entire dial, adding a modern twist. The Graphite Damier pattern also appears on the dial, below the indices and the hands. The case, meanwhile, is crafted from graphite-black PVD with a smoked gray sapphire case back.
The sporty, casual new watches are available as a 41.5 mm diameter automatic and 46 mm diameter chronograph on Louis Vuitton’s website, with prices starting at $5,750.
