In the world of luxury shopping, there are few categories left untouched by a Louis Vuitton logo. The French house makes everything from a mini trunk bag designed by Nicolas Ghesquière to a Supreme collaboration denim jacket to cashmere blankets. There’s even a version of the Mona Lisa beside the Vuitton monogram—thank you, Jeff Koons! New today is the company’s first piece of wearable tech. The Tambour Horizon watch is a reworking of its classic Tambour silhouette with new smartwatch technology.
Designed with Android Wear 2.0 running inside its 42mm case, the Tambour Horizon can pair with up-to-date Android phones and iPhones. The unisex design works internationally—including in China—making it an ideal companion for the LV-loyal globe-trotter. And aside from just coordinating with a jet-setter’s monogram trunks courtesy of its many interchangeable bands and watch faces, the timepiece also features two exclusive travel-centric apps. The first, My Flight, allows wearers to link up all their air travel info in a single app, and the second, City Guide, provides Vuitton-approved tips and recommendations once you land.
In addition to the Vuitton-specific functions, the watch will do everything a smartwatch normally would, from tell you when you’ve received a text to set an alarm for your evening workout. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is what to write as your mobile email signature. We think “Envoyé courtesy of LV” will do.
