At Baselworld 2015, one of the most unique and beautiful watches on display was the Louis Vuitton Escale Worldtime. It's an elegant watch with an eccentric look and worthwhile for a few reasons--it takes an artisan 50 hours to hand paint the various rings on the dial, the prints that correspond with the different city/time zones were inspired by monograms used on vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, and there are no hands--the time is told entirely by the yellow arrow. With a price tag at $67,500, some may easily see it as overpriced, but there's no denying the craftsmanship and artistry on display here is next level.
