Louis Vuitton Escale Worldtime Watch

Louis Vuitton puts on a visually striking face with the unveiling of its Escale Worldtime, featuring a dial that displays 24 cities and countries around the world, hand painted using 38 different colors. It sits in a white gold 41mm case with lugs mimicking the brackets from the corners of Louis Vuitton trunks. And while the new complication is intricate and detailed, the piece actually loses extra hands, replacing them with three separate rotating dials. The level of workmanship is such that it takes an entire week to paint one face alone. It’s no surprise, then, that only 20 pieces will be made this year, with retail set at $67,500.
