The all-new Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon replica watches UK mark the time when one of the most important luxury brands entered the smartwatch scene. Whether it is a bigger deal for Louis Vuitton or smartwatches in general we’ll ponder at another time soon enough, but for now we’ll give you a quick run-down on what the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon brings to the table, and also on what the luxury label’s stated approach is. Buckle up.
Michael Burke, chief executive of Louis Vuitton fake watches, told the New York Times that, in his view, when it comes to wearable technology “there’s a lot of ugliness out there. For us,” he said, “the aesthetic is nonnegotiable.” Okay, so, for a kick-off, there is a strong emphasis on aesthetics – and Louis Vuitton worked with the only watch design that they have working for them: the Tambour.
The Tambour got its name and case design from a traditional element in architecture, namely the upright part of a building on which a dome is raised. As far as watch design is concerned, this entails a case that is wider near the case-back than it is in the front. The Tambour Horizon incorporates recent updates to the design with the concave sides that the brand calls the Tambour Moon case. To see how it wears on the wrist, look forward to Ariel’s review of the Tambour Diver soon.
The Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon is a refreshing 42mm wide and a very commendable 12.55mm thick – TAG Heuer’s Connected Modular 45 is 45mm wide and while it wears well, it is unquestionably large on the wrist, while Montblanc’s recently launched Summit is a massive 46mm wide and, what’s worse, is pretty much unwearably long unless you have extremely thick wrists.
The 42mm diameter LV replica watches of the usually very comfy Tambour case sounds more than promising. The swiveling lugs are neatly integrated and should further enhance wearability, and for their short and articulated architecture, they don’t make the Tambour look unnecessarily long on the wrist.
The case of the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon is either brushed or satin finished stainless steel with polished “horns” and crown, or a black PVD-finished stainless steel. Considering the near-$3k price point of the black version, we would hope it is of the more durable DLC kind. For both versions, the front is covered by a sapphire crystal with a fixed 24-hour flange ring underneath it. Water resistance is 30m – unlike most other smartwatches, Louis Vuitton has not provided an IP rating.
