One of the most appealing elements of a Louis Vuitton watch is just how unabashedly bold they are in their design, as well as their wrist presence. The new Louis Vuitton Tambour Damier Cobalt is an excellent example, with its amply portioned 46mm stainless steel case, vivid dial graphics and branded rubber strap. The dial is styled with the iconic Damier canvas pattern that offers a chess board of black and navy, which is then overlaid with striking slashes of red and white to form the brand’s V.
There aren’t many companies producing watches in the world with such visual strength in their brand that diagonal stripes over a chequered mosaic can offer enough optical cues to be instantly recognised across the room, but Louis Vuitton have done exactly that. The Louis Vuitton Tambour Damier Cobalt is confidently offering an aesthetic that does not look like every other steel sports watch on the market, of which there are many that could be mistaken for one another. And, in addition to its distinctive design, it boasts an automatic movement with 42 hours of power reserve, 100m of water resistance, and one of the most easily adjustable straps on the market that can be swapped out with the press of a button.
If watches that are big, bold and have a strength of character not often seen in a steel sports watch are your cup of tea, this could be well worth taking a closer look at.
The Louis Vuitton Tambour Damier Cobalt has an Australian RRP of $10,375.
