From Louis Vuitton comes a new wristwatch – the Tambour Horizon, an innovative timepiece for travellers in a connected world, which allows its wearer to explore anew the Maison’s pursuit of personalisation, every day.

Boldly innovative in its embrace of technology, the new Tambour Horizon is a pioneering endeavour that nonetheless remains faithful to the spirit of the Maison’s founder, Louis Vuitton. As is only appropriate for this, the ideal watch for the contemporary traveller, the Tambour Horizon delivers the best of expertise, design and technology via exceptional provenance.

This is a timepiece that was conceived in Paris, with a case made at Louis Vuitton’s manufacturer in Switzerland, which deploys technology developed in California’s Silicon Valley, and for the very first time can be used right across the globe, including China.

Working closely with Google and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the Tambour Horizon combines all the technical capacity of a ‘smartwatch’ with the elegance and grace of a Tambour, the iconic watch that began Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking story in 2002.

At just 42mm, the case is exceptionally compact for a connected watch, thanks to Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 2100 platform. A perfect circle it features the distinctive concave bezel of the Swiss manufacture’s Tambour Moon design, and is available in Graphite, Monogram or Black, and there are 60 available detachable straps, 30 created for men and 30 for women.

Louis Vuitton has always had strong ties with the world of travel and the Tambour Horizon smartwatch is no exception, having been fitted with exclusive dedicated functions.

‘My Flight’, the first of these features and one that is found on no other smartwatch, keeps departing travellers informed of their flight times, terminal, and gate information, reports of delays, and the number of hours remaining before landing. The second exclusive function, ‘City Guide’, extends to the smartwatch the services of the guides edited by Louis Vuitton and their apps for tablets and smartphones.
