Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Horizon combines the aesthetic elegance of the Tambour mechanical watch with the tech clout of a smartwatch, including such unique features as the Louis Vuitton City Guides, which link to local time – so if it’s afternoon, they’ll suggest a place where you can have tea or coffee. Both versions of the Tambour “have exactly the same kind of construction, from the waterproofing to the sapphire face, and the size and position of the crown,” says Hamdi Chatti, who runs Louis Vuitton’s watch and jewellery business. “Believe me, this is a big, big job. Many connected watches have a strange look or are oversized, because you have to accommodate antennae.”
