Travel is in the very DNA of Louis Vuitton. So it was no surprise when they debuted their fabulous Escale Worldtime watch at Baselworld three years ago, a watch that lets you tell the time in 24 cities and countries around the world using a series of concentric rotating discs that bear the abbreviated names of timezones and feature a range of colorful flags to go with each location.
This year, the Escale Worldtime has been dipped in blue, with a blue background against which the colorful flags pop with brightness. 38 different colors have been applied to the dial by hand with a brush, a process that takes over 40 hours to complete. The blue of the background is echoed in the alligator strap.
The 41 mm case in brushed titanium and white gold holds the self-winding caliber LV106 movement which powers this watch. As always, all the discs that tell time can be adjusted through the watch’s lone crown. While the price and availability of this watch are as yet a mystery, we will keep you posted as and when more details emerge.
