Escale Worldtime / Louis Vuitton


The Louis Vuitton Escale Worldtime case is 41mm across with no bezel and at only 9.75mm thick it is extremely sleek. The caliber LV 106 is a true automatic world-timer with a 38-hour power reserve. You can see the rotor spinning at the edges of the case back and on the dial side you can tell the time in 24 timezones at once. The display however is quite unusual. There is a yellow arrow pointing to 12 o’clock. To set the Escale Worldtime, you use the crown to line up your home city with this arrow and then you set local time using the concentric hour and minute discs. The yellow arrow will then always point to local time. The time in other cities can be read by lining up the city with the corresponding hour on the 24-hour ring around the outer part of the dial — via HODINKEE
