Fascinating from a mechanical point of view, the Spin Time movement patented in 2010 displays the time via rotating cubes. The case of the Tambour éVolution has strong and simple lines magnified by the innovative "black MMC", which has incredibly durable and lightweight properties.

The LV 111 calibre has been designed to be a model of simplicity and reliability under any circumstances. Acting like a jumping hour mechanism, the system wound by the automatic movement goes into action every 60 minutes.

It moves, in a flash and by a twelfth of a turn, a disc equipped with appendices. The latter act on the Maltese crosses riveted to the axes of the aluminium cubes, rotating two of the twelve cubes by a quarter turn. The first presents a satin-finish face whereas it previously displayed an arrow, and the other, whose cube face had a satin-finish a few moments beforehand, presents in a flash an arrow pointing outwards to indicate the hours from 01:00 to 12:59 or an arrow pointing inwards to display those from 13:00 to 00:59.

The combination of gold and “black MMC” gives this timepiece with a 45-mm diameter a distinguished architecture whose virility is accentuated by the presence of the V-shaped motif added at the crown.

Guaranteed water resistant to 10 atmospheres, this benchmark piece features a screw-in winding crown. The distinguished Tambour éVolution Spin Time GMT is worn on the wrist with a bracelet topstitched in a red saddle stitch combining alligator with black calfskin and closed by an 18-carat pink gold pin buckle.
