Louis Vuitton LOUIS VUITTON launched the new Escale blue time spinning watch, redefining the concept of modern watchmaking aesthetics. In the center of the watch’s uniquely designed dial and on the movement developed exclusively by the brand, three different shades of cyan blue make the time display style more contemporary and modern. This watch incorporates the brand’s unique Time Scroll movement into the Escale case, and the charming time reading method is intoxicating. The soft metallic blue luster of the dial perfectly reflects the extraordinary craftsmanship of the dial craftsmen in the La Fabrique du Temps watchmaking workshop of Louis Vuitton. In the center of the sapphire glass, a disc is divided vertically and horizontally by smooth and concise lines, and is engraved with the inscription ‘Louis VuittonSpin Time’. It is shaped like a unique earth, describing the eternal global travel spirit of Louis Vuitton.
Fun and innovative ways of showing time
In 2010, Louis Vuitton launched the Tambur Spin Time GMT timepiece. The movement inside the watch (LV 119) powers 12 rotating cubes, revolutionizing the traditional time jump display function to form a brand-new full of fun and Innovative showtime system.
In 2014, Louis Vuitton continued its pace of innovation, drawing inspiration from Louis Vuitton’s iconic classic suitcases, launching a new case design and naming it the Escale watch series. In addition to the world’s time display function, the first Escale series watch also uses colorful ribbons, hand-drawn initials, flags and coats of arms on Louis Vuitton’s custom-made suitcases as inspiration to present a colorful dial design. From Escale world time watches to Escale time zone watches, this design inspiration has been continued, and Escale time spinning watch also uniquely interprets this design theme.
In this watch, 12 blocks with support rods are rotated simultaneously in groups of two to display the hours. Each square is displayed on four sides: two sides correspond to the day and night hours, and two sides display geometric flags. The pattern design is inspired by Louis Vuitton’s custom suitcases. The minutes are displayed in the traditional hands.
