While watches were, once upon a time, created with the sole purpose to keep time — it’s safe to say that that that’s no longer the case nowadays. With the advent of smartphones to help us quickly keep appointments, watches have long shifted over to another fundamental purpose: helping wearers to elevate and express their personal style.
Highlighted by its streamlined diamond design and elegant aesthetic, Tiffany & Co.‘s new Metro watch collection is set to offer the modern day woman just the right amount of sophistication and refinement to complement any outfit from day to night.
Reinforcing its diamond legacy that began as early as 1848 — when founder Charles Lewis Tiffany first acquired important gems from European aristocrats and royalty, thus setting the foundation for the brand as the ultimate destination for rare and dazzling diamonds — the new Metro timepieces feature an array of dazzling round brilliant diamonds on the bezel and the crown, each assigned with an individual serial number that is exclusive to its wearer. The dial, meanwhile, is adorned with eight round-cut and four baguette-cut diamonds that serve as indexes.
The 2-hand Metro watches are all available in 28mm cases in stainless steel or rose gold, which sit beautifully on delicate, feminine wrists; while the lacquered dial, available in a range of colours, is embellished with a captivating flinqué finishing, topped off with an intricate silver or gold poudré minute track surrounding the edge.
For a casual weekend in the city, we’d recommend the white or ice blue dial on a stainless steel case and bracelet, styled up with a ruffled top, wide-leg jeans and long shoulder bag for a modern, laid-back appeal. Add a few sleek, minimalistic jewellery pieces to the mix for an additional boost of understated elegance.
Got a lunch/dinner date with your significant other? Take it up a notch and go for the eye-catching rose gold version. Opt for the timepieces with dials and crocodile leather straps in matching colours of white or burgundy for a stylish monochrome effect. Though glamorous, these designs are all very versatile and will look beautiful with anything from the classic little black dress to a satin maxi dress, or even a formal jumpsuit.
Tiffany & Co.’s Metro watch collection not only embodies the unique heritage of the jewellery house, but also offers an array of aesthetics that highlight the unique individuality and style of the modern day woman. Contact your nearest Tiffany & Co. boutique for more information.
