Louis Vuitton Escale Spin Time Météorite
The bi-material case in rose gold and black PVD-coated titanium and the meteorite dial propel this model into a new dimension.
The Escale Spin Time watch is named after its rotating cubes whose motion displays the hours, a design patented and crafted entirely in-house at la Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton. It is a resolutely modern way of telling time. There is no hand, instead twelve cubes – set on spokes around the dial – spin independently to mark the passage of time. While eleven of them display variations in grey of the Louis Vuitton motifs drawn from its famous luggage, the twelfth stands out with an indication of time on one golden face. This unique concept puts a playful spin on technical innovation. Its top-flight mechanics are powered by the LV77 calibre automatic movement, which boasts a 40-hour power reserve.
The Louis Vuitton Escale Spin Time Meteorite is now available with a 41 mm, bi-material case combining the shine of pink gold with the depth of black PVD-coated titanium. This striking contrast is elegant, sophisticated and architectural all at once.

Its dial is carved out of the Gibeon meteorite that landed in Namibia. This other-worldly, mystical material has never before been used by Louis Vuitton. It brings a majestic splendour to the watch’s two-tone styling, highlighting the vivid sparkle of golden touches on the central minute hand and on the cubes that show the hours. This uncommon timepiece calls for very distinct expertise. Given the fragility of the friable stone, it takes a rare degree of skilled craftsmanship –no less than two days of work are needed to make one single dial.
The Escale Spin Time Meteorite is worn on a black alligator strap with 18K pink gold folding buckle.
