On Tuesday, luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton debuted its first-ever smartwatch, the Tambour Horizon.

Jumping onto the bandwagon of luxury fashion brands creating designer smartwatches, the Tambour Horizon is Louis Vuitton’s take on the increasingly popular connected watch. Developed in partnership with Google and Qualcomm, the Horizon uses the Android Wear 2.0 platform, as well as a number of other features that are distinctively Louis Vuitton.

True to its origins, the Tambour Horizon is marketed as a traveller’s watch right off the bat. Borrowing its sleek, elegant design from the Tambour — the iconic piece that launched Louis Vuitton into the world of watchmaking 15 years ago — the smartwatch blends timeless design with cutting-edge tech. Combining an interchangeable strap system and customisable watch faces with exclusive flight-tracking and city-mapping functions, it’s made for the dedicated and style-conscious traveller.

The Tambour Horizon features a 42mm stainless steel case and a 1.2” AMOLED touchscreen, as well as a sapphire glass case back, printed with the Louis Vuitton logo. It uses the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform, and it’s compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3/iOS 9 or higher.

The Tambour Horizon retails both online and in Louis Vuitton stores. It’s available in three different designs: Black, Graphite, and Monogram.
