There are times when we look good, and there are times when time looks good. The Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours collection is a case in point. The luxury brand has hit a masterstroke, with this one mixing the worlds of high watchmaking with immense drama. With Vivienne playing the lead role in several avatars, the Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours collection is dishing out what the audiences want- Jumping Hour watches! With the Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours collection, we see Vivienne assuming the roles of a fortune teller, a croupier, and a circus ringleader. Let’s explore these roles in detail:
Vivienne, the fortune teller:
Louis Vuitton’s enigmatic mascot Vivienne and her mischievous spirit are captured in this 18K pink gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds and one rose-cut diamond on the crown. The 38 mm dial is accentuated with a celestial Aventurine set with white brilliant-cut diamonds and black brilliant-cut diamonds. The LV 180 caliber movement is accompanied by a double aperture jumping hour complication developed and assembled by La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. The minutes are displayed on a traditional rotating hand showing tarot cards, while the hours will swap between an Arabic numeral and other model-specific symbols. A Shiny blue alligator strap completes the look.
Vivienne, the croupier:
The first métier one notices in awe is the one-of-a-kind Skarn dial set with brilliant-cut white diamonds and tsavorites. The details in this watch are commendable, right from the granular texture of the dial aping the typical card table to perfection or the green and red gemstones on the bezel recreating the milieu of a casino floor. The watch incorporates several casino elements like playing chips encircling minutes in different hues, cards laid out akin to a poker table, and Vivienne looking dapper in a tux. The 18K yellow gold case measures 38mm in diameter and is complemented by a gorgeous green alligator strap. LV has won all bets with this iteration without even playing!
Vivienne, the juggler:
This exquisitely handcrafted watch plays on the hide-and-seek nature of the jumping hour mechanism in the same playful manner a show is carried out in a circus. The Circus model comes with a 38mm mother-of-pearl dial flanked by several monogrammed LV flowers in the color of love. A striking red alligator strap makes a stunning statement and accentuates the water-resistant timepiece to 50m. Like its counterparts, the blazing red watch of the Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours collection boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
