Tambour “Fly Back” Automatic Chronograph Volez! - Edition Capsule II

Louis Vuitton is going even further in its evocation
of the aeronautical world

The Watch Quote™ - June 5th, 2012



The “Fly Back” Tambour Automatic Chronograph is characterised by a strong design: a tarmac-coloured black dial, two auxiliary counters (30-minute totaliser and small second hand) evoking the military chronographs of the sixties, and a bright yellow central hand allowing you to read sequentially the seconds that have passed on the chronograph on a double circular scale reminiscent of the radars found in aeroplane cockpits.

Prized by pilots for their navigation calculations, the Fly Back function allows you to reset the timing underway and restart another instantly by pressing and immediately releasing the reset push button, without needing to activate the “stop” push button.



To make reading the time easier, all of the time indications (index, hollow central hands, and small second counter) are made of shiny black steel, while the Fly Back chronograph instrumentation is adorned in yellow, a colour linked to the Maison’s history (sewing thread for fine leather goods) and very widely used in the world of aeronautics.

Powered by the LV 137 automatic calibre manufactured in the Dubois-Dépraz Swiss workshops, the “Fly Back” Tambour Automatic Chronograph offers a power reserve of 42 hours and features an ingenious date window positioned between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.

A professional instrument produced in a limited, numbered edition of 888 pieces, which is housed in the famous Tambour 44 mm-diameter steel case.

Equipped with a rubber-overmolded winding crown for optimal ergonomics, the “Fly Back” Tambour Automatic Chronograph is mounted on a two-material leather strap (alligator and calfskin with a yellow calfskin lining and yellow signature stitch).
