Escale Spin Time Tourbillon Central Bleue square
Louis Vuitton continues its V-inflected rhapsody in blue with this highly contemporary design that combines a central tourbillon with the distinctive 12-cube time display. The Spin Time movement isn't new – it first appeared in 2010 inside a Tambour case – but it is as innovative as ever, with a "face" that changes as the cubes rotate with the hours to reveal nautical flags that are hand-painted using pad printing. Vying for attention is the flying tourbillon that makes its own rotation once every minute. Free-floating in the centre of the dial, its cage is emblazoned with the famous V signature that Gaston Vuitton imagined in 1901. Housed inside an Escale case in titanium and platinum, with alternating polished and satin finishes, this Louis Vuitton timepiece is certain to make anyone's head spin.
