In a limited edition set, Louis Vuitton adds to its Tambour Bijou women’s watch collection a new ‘secret’ timepiece aptly called the Tambour Bijou Secret.
The characteristic that makes the Tambour Bijou Secret watch ‘secret’ emerges out of the watch’s appearance, seemingly being at once a jewel and a watch. The timepiece consists of two layers, the first of which pivots to reveal a watch dial ‘hidden’ underneath.
The Tambour Bijou Secret watch comprises a simple, but elegant flower shape on both of its layers, the top being a flower with rounded petals and the bottom having a flower with pointed petals. Both layers are carefully encrusted with diamonds, greatly contributing to the watch’s stunning and glimmering appearance, without being overtly ostentatious.
This timepiece, rather, is the epitome of femininity and class, with a feel that is both timeless like a jewel and modern as a watch. Being largely inspired by jewelry, the Tambour Bijou Secret watch has a rounded shape with a small size of just 22mm, akin to a jeweled bracelet as much as to a timepiece.
The Tambour Bijou Secret timepiece comes in three versions, each demonstrating Louis Vuitton’s careful and advanced mastery of the delicate materials the company utilizes in its pieces. The different versions consist of: white gold and mother-of-pearl, rose gold and Polynesian mother-of-pearl, and white gold and mother-of-pearl with a special strap fully encrusted with about 6 carats of diamonds. As all three versions appear very differently, choosing between them could prove a difficult task, as they are all equally stunning and elegant.
The hidden dial of the Tambour Bijou Secret consists simply of two hands and no markings, the watch serving the timekeeping function without being out rightly done so. The dial is also marked with the brand name Louis Vuitton, a reminder of the luxury and high quality nature of this product.
Each watch comes with two different straps, a patent Monogram triple-tour and an alligator strap fit to seamlessly match each particular version of the Tambour Bijou Secret timepiece.
Launched to great success and acclaim in 2006, the Tambour Bijou watch collection has become a staple product of Louis Vuitton’s impressive repertoire. The company proudly introduces the Tambour Bijou Secret women’s timepiece in this light, a limited edition watch that encapsulates Louis Vuitton’s technical and creative mastery when it comes to producing accessories that are timeless, elegant and luxurious.
