Louis Vuitton Tambour

Sep 02, 2023,03:18 AM

managed to try them on at the local boutique and they do feel comfortable on the wrist. i quite like how they look, but am a little put off by the delivery time which is next year June for the stainless steel if i pay the deposit now. you wonder if the waiting time is artificial

It is a nice watch. I feel the wait is artificial and a “tactic” to make this feel more coveted than it actually is. If resources were scant, it would be better suited to get these into the hands of clients who ordered them upon announcement as opposed to... 

I am very skeptical

As I don’t believe the demand for this watch is very big at ail. But I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

i doubt it too

The 2 tone has better contrast to my eyes….

At least the boutique is certain to be able to deliver in Jun24. To wait 6-9 months nowadays seems common even for a standard offering. Perhaps Bulgari has not ramped up production while assessing demand?

i quite like the 2-tone as well

if there's no waiting and stock is available, perhaps it's better for us to buy while on business or holiday overseas 😅

I can confirm 100% this is a round watch

 By: VinnieD : September 2nd, 2023-07:58
even without handling the watch

yes, it's round

I don't like this watch at all. I don't even like the name.

 By: patrick_y : September 2nd, 2023-07:38
Tambour means "drum" in French. The name was bestowed on this watch because the previous line of LV watches was called Tambour. BUT, the previous line of watches actually looked like a drum. This one is much thinner and doesn't look like a drum. The music... 

i learnt a new meaning to the word "manufacture" 😂

 By: terbaboom : September 3rd, 2023-15:08
and yes, i think the waiting is manufactured as well

Humans want what they can't get. It's human nature. LV knows how to pull the demand levers!

I am partial to the Tambour line because my first "luxury" watch many years ago (18 I think) was a Tambour

initially Quarz then I upgraded to their mechanical diver 😅 They really did a great job in creating a new movement and revamping the line. This said, I am totally fully booked in the integrated bracelet department and after the Laurent Ferrier Sport I am ... 

Nice new offering in the sports watch landscape. A pity

that they made some technical shortcuts on the movement. No free sprung balance.

I like the dial.

I´ve never been a fan of an integrated bracelet though. And like stated above - the Drum association is gone. I used to have a Tambour years ago and it was well made and stood out from the crowd. Not so much anymore Thanks for posting. Enjoy!.

Exactly! Tambour means drum! Where's the drum now?

 By: patrick_y : September 22nd, 2023-15:43
The watch is too thin to be a drum now!

Thanks for the nice shots my friend, I had a chance to see the new Tambour line (they had an event in Portofino this summer for a few watch collectors from the region) and I should say I did like it a lot!

 By: FabR : September 3rd, 2023-15:35
As their first foray into high-level watchmaking, they sensibly played it safe, but in my view the result is a very well executed and equally attractive new watch line. There is no doubt production will be kept limited, and at least in Europe, my understa...  

wow! looks like a very enjoyable event you've had there my friend!

i like how the watch looks. it's the waiting. well, maybe they need time as well to make the box that the watch comes in 😉

C'mon... You know the game already...

 By: patrick_y : September 21st, 2023-03:26
It's almost certainly artificial. And if it's not artificial - it doesn't matter. Maybe it's some technical detail; they made a big batch so the stores can show something to clients. But they're not going to make the next batch until clients actually plac... 

i'm giving this watch a pass

 By: terbaboom : October 14th, 2023-11:28

Don't blame you.

 By: patrick_y : October 16th, 2023-04:37
I'd pass on this watch too.

At least you see the watch.

I went to Hermes Taka yesterday thinking the new composite H08 is in as they having a mini watch fair there, only to find out that they are promoting some of the limited edition watches and complication which I have no interest nor moolah. But something i...  

agree with you that something is not right...

 By: terbaboom : October 14th, 2023-11:26
i can actually get the watch this Dec if i want to, but it'll be in Tokyo and through an SA there

I can collect on yr behalf if you want as I be dropping by LV to maybe customise a passport holder fr my wife. 🤭. Just kidding. Maybe I dropby Hermes’ to see the new H08 watch.
