Louis Vuitton has released a limited edition regatta watch for the 2012 America’s Cup. Often called the “oldest trophy in international sport”, this year marks the 34th America’s Cup.
The 34th America’s Cup consists of three main stages – the America’s Cup World Series; the Louis Vuitton Cup (the Americas’s Cup Challenger Selection Series) and the America’s Cup Finals.
Ongoing right now is the AC World Series, with 4 races completed and two to go. The next race commences on May 12, 2012 from Venice, Italy.
The Louis Vuitton watch is part of the Tambour collection, with a rubber-coated steel case and auto-mechanical movement with 5-minute regatta countdown.
The America’s Cup logo appears on the dial and is also embossed on the rubber strap.
