New exclusive options allow you to personalise the dial with your chosen watch face. In the spirit of connected technology, time display is essentially digital. The digital mode is embellished with emblematic motifs – Monogram, Damier, or even with the V for Gaston-Louis Vuitton. These have all been entirely reworked, deconstructed, and broken down to create transparent effects and contrasts with the Monogram Flowers. The new colour palette, the contrasting bands and the option of adding your initials mean that an almost infinite number of aesthetic combinations are possible all in the image of the House. Special watch faces have been added to the existing collection, featuring the same strong design aesthetic typical of a Louis Vuitton runway show.

Across the rim, a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator, visible even when the watch is in ambient mode, lets you view all your data at a glance. With its own watch face, the “Agenda” function separates meeting times from free time with distinctive coloured segments.

The “Step counter” function lets travellers who like to visit cities on foot record the distance treked and the most intensive periods of movement. Again, the watch face has a detailed design with the LV Archlight, the iconic Louis Vuitton sneaker, pictured at the centre.

The “Pollution” function displays the air quality index on the watch face in real time. Air quality projections are displayed in coloured segments. Weather and temperature forecasts put the finishing touches to the Tambour Horizon’s functions.

While the unisex case retains the emblematic Tambour Horizon shape and inverted curved case, the watch is now available in polished white ceramic. The use of this material in craftsmanship smart watchmaking is a true feat of technical excellence. In addition to new versions in polished steel, matte black PVD, white ceramic and white ceramic with gem-set horns, there is also a matte brown PVD model. This colour has been an integral part of Louis Vuitton’s aesthetic since 1854, used most prominently in the emblematic Monogram design.

Holiday Season × Teeth

The winter months bring around an exciting holiday time of year, but they also bring cold weather and health threats. Aside from your common cold, the flu, and other immune system worries – the holiday season also poses a serious, overlooked-by-many, threat to your teeth.

Dentists this time of year run down their lists, check them twice, and can easily tell if you’ve been naughty or nice to your teeth.

Dr. Mazen Natour, Top NYC DMD and Prosthodontist who says your teeth may be more sensitive during the winter months and prone to cavities, staining, and more.

Here are some reasons why:

• Hot beverages, like hot cocoa, tea, and coffee can irritate nerve endings due to the large temperature difference between the hot beverage and cold outdoor temperatures

• Sugary treats, like holiday cocktails, seasonal pies and other baked goods can increase your chance of tooth decay, sensitivity, and cavities

• Colds and sinus infections, common in the winter, swell the maxillary sinus area near your teeth which can contribute to tooth pain and overall sensitivity

• Did you know that red wine drinking can stain your teeth? Keep this in mind as you’re reaching for the extra glass at your next holiday party

These points are a snapshot of why your teeth may be more sensitive and prone to havoc this holiday season.
