To commemorate its 180th anniversary, illustrious jeweller Tiffany & Co has created the Tiffany Square Watch. While the brand is synonymous with exquisite jewellery and gorgeous pearls, Tiffany’s roots in horology date back to 1847, just 10 years after Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young set up shop in New York City.
The Tiffany Square Watch is the brand’s debut of its in-house calibre manufacturing, with a square manual winding movement that was both designed and engineered by the Tiffany watchmakers in Switzerland.
Measuring 27mm across and 35.88mm wide, the svelte 18k yellow gold case is inspired by a similar square case from the 1920s, and the watch face is a callback to the Art Deco era, with its cathedral-styled watch hands and geometrical numerals. In place of the six o’clock numeral, there is a small seconds indicator in the same square shape. A black alligator strap completes the look.
Retailing for S$21,500, the Tiffany Square Watch is available in a limited supply of 180 pieces at select Tiffany stores worldwide from November 2017.
