Been eyeing the Louis Vuitton tambour watch for almost 2 years now, and finally decided to get it. I figure that since I’m a ‘one watch only’ kinda girl, it would be worth it, especially since I wear it everyday. I wore my previous watch for 5 years daily! I bought it off a colleague and decided that I wanted to change the band to a steel one, since it’s more sturdy and will last “a lifetime” – according to the Louis Vuitton SA 😉 I think it suits the watch better, and I’d never be able to keep a leather band clean..
The boutique was really great and let me swap the pink leather band for the steel one. It looks so much better IMHO! And best yet, it’s custom-fit to my wrist.. and I can take it back to the boutique to make it bigger in summer if I choose. I really really love it and it’s a great *ahem* investment piece since it will last forever. I know people treat Rolex and Omega as investment pieces, but for the price, I’d much rather my Louis Vuitton – a brand that I actually love, instead of spending $$ on some random brand just because it’s expensive. I can’t stop staring at the watch on my wrist now… I LOVE IT! *happy dance*
