Perhaps Archie can comment on this watch since it is from his favorite designer. :lol:

Louis Vuitton Escale Spin Time Black & Fire For Only Watch 2017: A Whirling, Colorful Delight

by Martin Green



Few brands can equal the international globe-spanning success of Louis Vuitton; it seems that everything that the brand makes turns to gold.

Perhaps one of the secrets of the Louis Vuitton’s success is the focus on quality, and this is evident in the brand’s watches. With such a strong brand name, wristwatches have the potential of becoming one of the marque’s cash cows. And as long as these are mainstream (read affordable) enough while continuing to display sufficient Louis Vuitton “DNA,” there is nothing wrong with that.

Yet that is not what Louis Vuitton has done. In fact, it went down the completely opposite route, taking a quite artistic approach to its timekeepers. This is an approach that Gaston-Louis Vuitton, who was fascinated by design and a leading collector of vintage hotel labels (one of my favorite books in my personal library is World Tour: Vintage Hotel Labels from the collection of Gaston-Louis Vuitton by Francisca Matteoli), would have most certainly appreciated. http://quillandpad.com/2017/08/22/louis ... l-delight/

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
