Tambour Graphite Chronographe GMT

Since trunk maker Louis Vuitton first started in the 1830s, travel has always been integral to the brand. Journeys were long, packing was labour intensive and trunks were well-filled in the 19th century. The Parisian brand’s signature trunks still exist today alongside suitcases and large travel bags such as the Keepall. Travel light and travel smart, just like the Tambour which puts a second time zone and chronograph on a single dial. A self-winding LV158 calibre nestles inside the 44mm steel case. The dial gleams with different shades of grey divided into concentric circles. From the chapter ring to the centre there’s a minute track, a 24-hour graduated ring beneath a red-tipped hand (GMT) then an hour rim overlapped by the small seconds counter (at 3) and the chronograph minute counter (at 9). Price: 7,800 CHF
