Bright time for dark times

The Tambour Horizon Light Up is arguably the most stunning connected watch of the moment. Its case seems to stretch beyond the profile of the watch, much like infinity pools.

A backlighting system made up of multicoloured rainbow-like LEDs illuminates the dial. The owner can configure the display according to his or her taste, among eight available animations. Even the straps are interchangeable.

The heart of the watch is an exclusive Louis Vuitton operating system – Snapdragon Wear 4100 – that is intuitive enough to be used even if you’re not a computer scientist.

Why dedicate a photo shoot to this model, if not for its photogenic qualities? Because in these dark times, this watch, which seems to have come straight out of a dystopia invented by Netflix and which illuminates the days and nights, is the worthy daughter of its time.
