Louis Vuitton Only Watch 2015: A timepiece for the jetsetter
Paul Pettavino and Louis Vuitton tweaked the Escale Worldtime for the French house's contribution to this year's Only Watch Auction

Only Watch 2015 is the sixth edition of the biennial auction, which is slated to take place in Geneva at the end of the year (November). Participating brands contribute one-of-a-kind timepieces to be auctioned off in the name of charity, and the funds raised are donated to the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy.  

Louis Vuitton partnered up with Paul Pettavino on their submission for the past five editions, and their established relationship has continued for the sixth time. The brilliant, colourful dial of the Escale Worldtime was the inspiration for this one-of-a-kind timepiece. The Worldtime function on the timepiece is specifically calibrated for the jetsetter — it is able to display the 24 different time zones on its three mobile discs — and Pettavino adapted the colourful dial of the Original Escale Worldtime to mimic the brilliance of a '70s disco dancefloor.

For the colourful wanderluster, Louis Vuitton's Escale Worldtime is the perfect accompaniment for a life well travelled.
