Review: Louis Vuitton – Tambour Evolution GMTWritten by Alvin Wong
The fashion tag might weigh heavy on Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking division, but sometimes, that’s precisely the reason why the brand has been able to set itself apart horologically – with an innate and refined sense of design.
This watch’s sexy raven guise wouldn’t look out of place on a fashion runway – or on the wrist of a very stylish gent. It’s great too, that there is plenty of substance. The case’s black DLC coating not only lends the watch Left Bank chic, it endows it with scratch resistance. Meantime, its automatic movement is a certified performer offering 42-hours of power reserve and second time zone feature.
Price: S$10,800 (incld GST)
