Louis Vuitton Diving Watch

You don't have to be a commercial frogman to see the merits of Louis Vuitton’s new Tambour Diving Chronograph. 

Though the first commercial diving watch was officially manufactured by Omega in 1932, watchmakers started experimenting with impermeable timepieces as long ago as the 17th century.

The latest model to join the historic fold is this sleek new diving chronograph from Maison Louis Vuitton. Featuring a rubber overmoulded steel case with a matching strap and a moody azure black dial, the Tambour Diving Chronograph is watertight to 300m.

It also boasts a rotating bezel to help serious divers keep track of their dive time, plus it’s easy to read — even at serious depths — thanks to the large 45.5mm dial.

Most importantly, the classic shape and understated colourway mean even certified landlubbers can justify the investment. (£6,215, by Louis Vuitton)
