Louis Vuitton Launches Luxury Smartwatch

Jewelry & Watches

The French fashion house Louis Vuitton is the latest brand that decided to hop on the wearable tech bandwagon. Louis Vuitton’s first smartwatch carries the name Tambour Horizon. The fashion house certainly loves to challenge themselves with innovative products. Recently they collaborated with the exclusive sportswear brand Supreme. Additionally, the brand’s mini trunk bag designed by the creative director Nicolas Ghesquière as well as the cashmere blankets were a major success as well.

The latest product in the series of innovative launches is their first piece of wearable tech. The Tambour Horizon watch is a modern upgrade of the original Tambour watch with Google’s Android Wear 2.0 operating system.The technology is packed in a 42mm case and works with both Android phones and iPhones. The watch is available in 3 different styles and finishes: polished, satin finish and all black. All the styles are unisex, wearable and designed to blend with any outfit. On top of that, there is a variety of downloadable digital watch faces and 60 different interchangeable strap options.

The smartwatch is designed to work internationally and it’s perfect for the trendsetters who are constantly on the go. For travelers, the brand installed two exclusive travel-centric apps on the smartwatch. The first app is called “The Flight” and is designed to gather the traveler’s air travel info on one place. The other app is called “City Guide” and includes recommendations and tips for exploring the place once you land. The battery life of the smartwatch is similar to those of other smartphones and lasts about a day.“It’s something that is pretty new on the market and at the same time very interesting,” said the vice-president of watches and jewelry at LV Hamidi Chatti. Considering the fact that smartwatches have been on the market for a while this is definitely not a new product.Louis Vuitton’s smartwatch will do everything that a regular smartwatch will do. You could receive text messages, set an alarm, explore the internet, etc. There are also a couple of features that separate the Tambour Horizon watch from the other smartwatches on the market. First, the 42mm dial is the smallest among the luxury smartwatches. Also, Tambour Horizon is the first Android smartwatch that is designed to function in China. This is extremely important for the brand because China is one of Louis Vuitton’s largest markets when it comes to jewelry and watches.

Louis Vuitton’s vice president Chatti revealed that the making of the watch took 2 years. The brand wanted to make sure that they had the perfect product. Their main goal was to create a blend of luxury and beauty in a tech version.

As for the technology part of the design, Louis Vuitton teamed up with Google and Qualcomm. The brand had strict requirements about the design. They didn’t want to compromise on the beauty of the watch and asked Google and Qualcomm to come up with a system that will fit in the style that they designed.

If you want to get your hands on the luxury Tambour Horizon smartwatch, expect to spare at least $2,450. Since we are talking about a smartwatch made by one of the most prestigious luxury fashion houses the price shouldn’t surprise us at all.

However, the smartwatches aren’t a novelty in the Louis Vuitton’s family. The brand’s sister company, Tag Heuer, also dropped its first smartwatch back in 2015. Their main concern was the strong competition from the tech giants Apple and Samsung. Surprisingly, the watches outdid everyone’s expectation in sales. They sold 56,000 units, which was three times more than what they expected. The brand expects to sell over 150,000 units this year.

It’s safe to say that lately, the customers are more interested in wearable technology driven accessories. Louis Vuitton revealed that they are working on other technology driven pieces that can be controlled from the smartwatch. Chatti adds that the future plans will release when the technology is ready and it makes sense for their clients.

Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon – An Android-powered stylish smartwatch

Jewelry & Watches


For quite a few years, we saw most of the high-end watchmakers and luxury fashion brands stay away from smartwatches. But lately we are witnessing a trend reversal and in the last one and half year many of these brands have made their foray into the segment. After Tag Heuer, Montblanc, Emporio Armani, Michael Kors, and Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton has become the latest to a swing at the luxury smartwatch market. The famed French designer brand has launched its first smartwatch named the Tambour Horizon Watch. Louis Vuitton developed the watch in partnership with Google and Qualcomm and it runs on Android Wear 2.0.


The Tambour Horizon watch is a reworking of its classic Tambour silhouette and swaps the mechanical hardware for digital technology. The 42mm case of the watch sports a 1.2-inch AMOLED 390×390 touchscreen that is surrounded by a 24-hour dial ring and it is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. In addition to the standard Android Wear features, Louis Vuitton has added some custom watchfaces based on its existing product lineup, along with some flight-tracking and city guide features. The pricing for the Tambour Horizon watch starts at $2,450 for the regular stainless steel model, and $2,900 for the black variant.

Louis Vuitton’s latest spin time watch is the Escale Spin Time Blue

Jewelry & Watches


Louis Vuitton’s Escale Spin Time Blue takes their already clever Escale Spin Time watch to another realm of cool. Escale Spin Time watches are powered by an in-house LV movement which allows the 12 rotating cubes on the dial to move and tell time. This 2017 version also includes a flying tourbillon in the centre of the dial that rotates every minute. This is the first time the house has combined their Spin Time movement with a flying tourbillon.


This innovation is housed in a 41 mm satin finished titanium case with a platinum bezel, lugs and crown. The v-shaped tourbillon carriage seems to float over the dial of the watch and the house chose to enhance this effect by using a specially designed sapphire crystal. While previous renditions of the Escale Spin Time have been pretty colorful, this watch uses a single color- blue- to great effect. The Escale Spin Time Blue is finished with a navy blue alligator strap with a yellow rubber-effect calfskin lining and a white gold pin buckle.

Louis Vuitton: #MakeAPromise For UNICEF

Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

When I was just a teeny-tiny boy (which wasn’t too long ago), I remember doing the pinky promise with my best friends and school mates over the things we hold so dear to our little hearts. The intertwining of the pinkies between two individuals signifies a promise made.

To make a promise today holds so much more. A promise we make today, is a promise we hold for life.

Since 2016, Louis Vuitton has made a promise to the world’s most vulnerable children. Children living in war-torn conditions; children exposed to diseases and natural disasters. It is in this promise that Louis Vuitton has committed, through UNICEF, to help bring life-saving humanitarian support to these children in need.

Why #MakeAPromise?

Louis Vuitton renews its promise to bring hope for a better life by launching its first #MakeAPromise day on 12 January 2017 to raise funds for children in need.

A specially designed silver Lockit necklace/bracelet has been created for this year’s #MakeAPromise. In full sterling silver, the necklace is about 20 cm long, and the bracelet length stands at 17.5 cm, but adjustable to between 15 cm and 16 cm. And for each sale of the necklace/bracelet, USD200 is donated to UNICEF, which will go toward protecting children from diseases and providing disaster relief.

So come and make a pinky promise with me today.

The flowers in the center of the watches have been carved in 3d from a single piece of mother-of-pearl using the techniques that are applied to the creation of cameos. The flowers are then painted in different shades of pink and blue for an ombré effect.

But the eye catching mother-of-pearl design is not the only notable detail on the watches, they are also decked out in diamonds. The Tambour Spin Time and Tambour Monogram Tourbillon feature diamond paved dials while other designs are more subtle, with diamonds at the indices and bezel.

On the dial of the Tambour Monogram Tourbillon, one petal of the mother-of-pearl flower has been replaced with the flower-shaped cage of the tourbillon while the Tambour Spin Time includes a complicated movement that lets the wearer tell the time by referring to the rotating diamond-studded cubes placed at the indices. Each watch is completed by an alligator strap.
