Form meets function in Louis Vuitton’s stylish Escale Spin Tiime watch


Louis Vuitton’s new Escale Spin Time watch will be an object of curiosity to watch collectors thanks to the way it combines two innovative concepts to form an artistic new timepiece. The Escale Spin Time features the brand’s spin time complication encased in the distinctive Escale watch case. The dial features spinning cubes at the indices. Two faces of each cube feature have been hand painted with colorful miniature nautical flags, while the remaining two faces feature numerals for 12 and 24-hour timekeeping). Every hour, one of the cubes spins to reveal the hour of the day while a white hand indicates the minutes. Effectively, the dial of the watch changes with every passing hour, revealing the different flags.
