Louis Vuitton’s Escale Spin Time Blue takes their already clever Escale Spin Time watch to another realm of cool. Escale Spin Time watches are powered by an in-house LV movement which allows the 12 rotating cubes on the dial to move and tell time. This 2017 version also includes a flying tourbillon in the centre of the dial that rotates every minute. This is the first time the house has combined their Spin Time movement with a flying tourbillon.
This innovation is housed in a 41 mm satin finished titanium case with a platinum bezel, lugs and crown. The v-shaped tourbillon carriage seems to float over the dial of the watch and the house chose to enhance this effect by using a specially designed sapphire crystal. While previous renditions of the Escale Spin Time have been pretty colorful, this watch uses a single color- blue- to great effect. The Escale Spin Time Blue is finished with a navy blue alligator strap with a yellow rubber-effect calfskin lining and a white gold pin buckle.
