Louis Vuitton celebrates the 120th anniversary of the Damier Graphite with the new Tambour Damier collection

Hail the illustrious check pattern: An iconic masculine print famously associated with LV's trunk luggage, the Tambour Damier collection reimagines the popular check design into two new timepieces that boast a contrasting grey-black and metal-black colourway imprinted onto a 39mm-sized dial. Outfitted in two versions, one in canvas strap and the other in stainless steel, both watches emanate an urbane refinement that exemplifies the French house.

Featuring a thin reversed Tambour case that measures only 8mm thick, both models gleam with polished indexes and quarterly-hour marks upon their dials, powered by a Swiss-made quartz ETA 955.112 movement. With an engraved back and dual finishes in brushed satin on the bezel and polished horns, the Tambour Graphite collection is a perfectly practical and practically perfect accompaniment for the modern man.

The Tambour Damier is available at Louis Vuitton boutiques.
