Louis Vuitton combines two of its most fascinating watches to create Escale Spin Time
When it comes to manufacturing timepieces, Louis Vuitton never hesitates to break with tradition.
In 2010, for instance, Louis Vuitton introduced Tambour Spin Time GMT, which tells time through a rotating cube on the dial. And in 2014, Escale was launched. The watch is recognizable for its hand-painted colorful dial, which is inspired by Louis Vuitton’s iconic trunks. Completed with three moving discs, Escale is able to indicate the time in different parts of the world without watch hands.
Now imagine what will happen when those two watches are made into one.
Actually, there’s no need to imagine it anymore, as Louis Vuitton has unveiled Escale Spin Time watch, which, as the name suggests, is basically made of a combination between Escale and Spin Time.
In the new watch, the hour display seen in Spin Time is incorporated into Escale’s dial and case. The colorful flags found in Escale also appear in the 12 Spin Time-like rotating cubes. By fusing the features from both watches, Louis Vuitton has managed to devise a unique watch whose face changes every hour.
Available in 18-carat white or rose gold, the 41mm watch is completed with automatic Calibre LV77 movement, with a 42-hour power reserve. It also comes with a gray alligator strap.
