Living and traveling in style with Louis vuitton scale world time with elegance and refinement. Inspired by the trunk corner pieces and customization, the Escale Worldtime is a watch that perpetuates Louis Vuitton's tradition of travel with elegance and sophistication. It introduices a new white gold case and features an exclusive in-house worldtime with no hand complication. The hand-painted city disc enhances the brightness and contrasts of the dial.
The World Time indicator, without watch hands, is a watchmaking innovation by Louis Vuitton’s La Fabrique du Temps. By aligning the initials of the desired city above the yellow arrow, you can instantly see the time anywhere in the world. Three separate, moving discs – synchronised by an automatic calibre – form the dial and are commanded by a single crown. The dial is decorated using techniques from the art of miniature painting. The 38 different shades are applied with a fine-tipped brush in small, successive touches, requiring more than 40 hours of handcraftsmanship at the La Fabrique du Temps watch Manufacture in Geneva. The case in polished and brushed white gold reinterprets trunk corner trims, transforming them into a mini-trunk containing a patented calibre, developed and assembled at the La Fabrique du Temps watch manufacture. On the back of the watch case, the rear sapphire reveals an oscillating weight spinning around a large LV. The Escale watch is presented on a hand-stitched alligator strap with a white-gold buckle.
