If only for the sheer pleasure of using its GMT function, the Escale Time Zone watch instills a desire to explore the world. Inspired by travel and the inimitable Louis Vuitton trunks, it offers a new take on the GMT function. The hours and  minutes are indicated in classic fashion by means of a triangle and a minutes hand standing out against the central round shape evoking a stylized globe. A 24-hour disk directly adjustable via the crown serves to set the reference time facing the desired city, and thus all the others simultaneously. This singular way of presenting the GMT function is matched on the Escale Time Zone by a playful and original graphic design playing on colorful geometrical motifs. Coats-of-arms, initials and pictograms are painted on the dial in hand-crafted style. All the colors of the world to discover and appreciate in an elegant 39 mm steel case.
