Official description

Designed, developed, and manufactured at Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking workshop in Geneva, the Tambour Einstein Automata is the result of some of the most recognised horological and artisanal talents in the world today.

A dial of remarkable craftsmanship, incorporating the techniques of micro-sculpture and grisaille enamel, depicts the likeness of Albert Einstein in one of his most notorious photographic and mischievous portraits, sticking his tongue out in an unexpected moment of levity. 

Within the iconic Tambour case beats the LV 525 calibre whose movement brings the dial to life through 4 animations, providing time on demand. 

The story of the dial continues on a hand-painted Louis Vuitton trunk, giving pride of place to this exceptional watch.
