As playful as it is technical, the unrivalled, innovative Spin Time concept provides a fun way of reading the time thanks to an exclusive and patented calibre developed a decade ago. Instead of a central hand, these watches use twelve rotating cubes to display the hours. Every 60 minutes, the corresponding cube spins to reveal the next hour, while the previous hour simultaneously rotates to hide its numeral. This year, the master watchmakers at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton have further evolved the unique self-winding movement to be even more ethereal, with the cubes displaying the hour appearing to float in mid-air. These cubes have become veritable satellites, suspended between the calibre and the case, whose hidden sides can be seen through the transparent back along with the oscillating weight.
Each of the seven new Tambour Spin Time Air watches is housed in a white gold case, available in a variety of gemstone patterns, while the cubes themselves are set with diamonds or coloured stones, lacquered or satin-brushed.
