Louis Vuitton Tambour Regate Navy Limited Edition Watch
Louis Vuitton is really getting serious about its watches being near water. First we see a new Tambour Diving watch collection, and now a new yacht racing piece. This is the utility focused Tambour Regate Navy, and is a true regatta watch.

Louis Vuitton Tambour Diving Watch

On December 26, 2010, in LUXURY, Syndicated, WATCHES, by SOURCE: Perpetuelle.com Blog
News from Dubai… This new Tambour diver from Louis Vuitton will hit Louis Vuitton boutiques in January 2011.  A refresh of a model first introduced in 2005, the watch comes in a few combinations:  steel case/black dial (men’s 44mm and women’s 39.5mm sizes), steel case/blue dial, and a limited edition pink gold case/blue dial/red bezel.  The more discerning eye may appreciate the skeletonized hour and minutes hands, as well as the “dive flag” motif for the small seconds subdial at the 6 o’clock position.  There is also a unidirection bezel which is set with “LOUIS VUITTON” letters in rubber to make for easier grasping of the bezel — if you look closely you can see this in the photo below.

Louis Vuitton called upon the talents of New York based tattoo artist Scott Campbell work with the famous French brand on their June 2010 runway show in Paris at the start of last summer. That wasn't the first Campbell has worked with Louis Vuitton - but recent news points to the fact that their Spring/Summer 2011 lines will focus on the aesthetic of Mr. Campbell. As a promo to the "lifestyle" behind his designs, Louis Vuitton will be issuing a series of videos that follow Campbell around to various "secret destinations." All part of putting life into the new collection. Will there be a Scott Campbell watch? That would be interesting. Here he is seen wearing one of Louis Vuitton's rare, but quite cool Tambour collection timepieces. You can see more about Louis Vuitton and Scott Campbell's work together here.
