About This Watch

Pre-loved. Comes with orig. brown leather box+outer box, manual & dated paper. One owner's watch from new & purchased new from the Paris boutique. Louis Vuitton watches like it's leather goods are only sold through their boutiques at full retail without discounts and a sale has never taken place in it's history nor is there a factory outlet so we can never find Sale items from legitimate sources.

This is a very rare watch in the pre-owned market and in fact there are no other mechanical watches quite like it and those that do will cost you 6 figures in USD.

The Tambour Spin Time Regatta Chronograph is quite a fascinating watch. It is innovative & features a complex double stopwatch functions similar to a Split-seconds where the watch functions as a regular chronograph and a press of the red-tipped pusher actives the mechanism which uses coloured cubes that rotate one revolution every minute for the 5 minute count-downs used in Regattas. This is a very expensive watch and the owner paid 23000 = S$34900! The deployant buckle seen here was an extra option where he paid a further 130 to upgrade it. I don't think we'll ever see another piece for sale so grab your chance now.

Watch is in mint condition throughout except for a faint hairline on the case band @ 10 o'clock position but this is very faint & hardly visible with naked eyes. Otherwise, there's no dents or any major scratches and strap is in splendid condition. Please call us for your price & it is very attractive.

"Louis Vuitton started taking part in the America’s Cup in 1983 and formed the Louis Vuitton Cup, a preliminary competition to select the team to sail as the challenger in the America’s Cup. In 2004 Louis Vuitton launched the Tambour LV Cup Régate watch, ref. Q10210. Many different versions would follow in the next few years.

In 2010 Louis Vuitton had introduced the extraordinary Tambour Spin Time collection, where the hours are revealed by cubes that rotate simultaneously to show either a neutral or a numbered face thanks to a unique and patented mechanism.

In 2012 the brand launched the Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Regatta  (white gold and titanium version). The innovative movement can be used either as a chronograph or as a 5-minute regatta countdown, visually indicated on the dial by 5 rotating cubes. In 2013 a pink gold version followed in a limited and numbered edition of 100 pieces.

The picture shows how the rotating cubes of a regular Spin Time watch are configured in the dial. Normally the 12 cubes mark the hours, but in a Tambour Spin Time Regatta only 5 cubes are used showing the 5-minute countdown of the race.

The watch has the crown to set the time at 3 o’clock one pusher at 2 o’clock for start/stop and one pusher at 4 o’clock for reset. Again the crown and pushers are overmolded with rubber. It has counters at 12 o’clock with a 30-minute register and a 12 hour register in a sub-dial at 6 o’clock. At 8 o’clock there’s a red pusher to choose between the ‘chrono’ or ‘regate’ function, indicated in a small aperture in the dial at 12 o’clock.

As a chronograph, the watch operates normally and the cubes have no function, but by selecting the regatta function, the 5 cubes turn red and the 30-minute register will leap forward and move the 5-minute countdown displayed in red into the counter. This way the minutes before departure are taken into account in the final measured time. The countdown will be indicated by the changing colours of the five cubes on the right hand side of the dial."
