Born of the spirit of travel, French luxury house Louis Vuitton reaches for that one place that men dream of flying to one day: the moon.

The new Tambour Moon Blue watches are characterized by the inverted curve of its dials in a shade of blue that recalls the deep sapphire hue of the sky when day turns into night. 

Best For Every Day

The no-fuss Moon GMT Blue displays the date through an aperture at three o’clock and a second time zone by way of an additional central hand. This model’s moon-shaped case comes in two styles: stainless steel and a two-toned steel design complemented by 18-carat rose gold.  

Best For Number Crunchers

The Moon Chronograph Blue is the largest of the bunch. With a 44-mm pink-gold case, the model appears more sporty, but still elegant enough to wear on first class. The chronograph features an impressive 36,000 oscillations per hour and a 50-hour power reserve.

Finally, the Moon Tourbillon Volant Blue exhibits a grand complication: a flying tourbillon. That carriage at 6 o'clock performs a complete rotation in 60 seconds and, notably, features a V (for Vuitton, of course). Its calibre, the LV81, is developed and assembled at the French house's own manufacture, La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. 

Since its inception in 2002, the Tambour watch has adapted to the evolving tastes of the jet-setters. Most notably, the watches are now fitted with LV’s patented interchangeable strap system that makes it easy to change bands.

You can change the entire feel of your watch by just switching from, say, a textured alligator leather to the iconic Monogram canvas. No need to use tools or visit the store. Just switch things up by hand in your hotel room.
