Escale Worldtime Minute Repeater

Louis Vuitton 2015

Unisex

In 2014, Louis Vuitton presented a highly original Escale Worldtimer with hand-painted indications on two rotating discs – hence no hands – that showed time in any of 24 time zones simply by glancing at the initials of the corresponding city. This year the brand has set the bar higher still and added a minute repeater to this new Escale Worldtime, which sounds time back home no matter where in the world the owner of the watch may be. Home time is set by aligning the letter V, engraved on the octagonal crown, with the corresponding spot on the dial. The time zone is then adjusted by pushing a button in the crown.
