In celebration of their 180th birthday, Tiffany & Co. have just unveiled the Tiffany Square watch. The timepiece is said to take inspiration from a 1920s watch from the house’s archives and has been faithfully reproduced for the 21st century.
Tiffany Square watch
The Tiffany Square watch features a 27mm — square — case, in 18K yellow gold Tiffany replica watches, with its lugs extending out to 38.88mm, lengthwise. The dial appears to be a beige cream lacquered dial bearing a squared railway track minute scale around its perimeter.
The special six
The Arabic numerals used for the hours are either filled with a cream colored luminescent material or it is perhaps the same poudré numerals we are more familiar with on the dials of the CT60 watches, announced in 2015. At six o’clock though, in place of the 6th hour, we have a small running seconds contained within yet another railway track styled square.
It is the hands on the watch that seal the art deco feel of the watch with its cathedral styled hour and minute hands, which are as well filled with the same cream colored material as used in the hour numerals.
Worth to own
However, as big as the watch announcement is, the bigger news here is that the movement within the Tiffany Square fake watches are one that was designed, engineered and manufactured in Switzerland under the house’s own roof. Commendably, and rightfully, the manual winding caliber created is a square one nicely fills out the back of the watch. The easier way, of course, would’ve been to create a ubiquitous round movement, which could then be used in other watches within the Tiffany’s collection.
As this is a special watch, created to commemorate Tiffany’s 180-year anniversary, the watch will be made in a limited run of just 180 pieces, available from November 2017 onwards.
