Like today, in vintage times no name better captured the idea of embracing the best life had to offer than that of Tiffany & Co. One of the company's offerings were Tiffany & Co. branded watches, many of which were made for the company by a fine manufacturer.
Today's offering showcases this 18K gold Tiffany & Co. by Longines mens wristwatch. It features a small cushion shape case, wonderful original Art Deco signed Tiffany & Co. luminous dial, high-grade Longines handwound caliber 18.85N movement with three adjustments, and solid 14K gold buckle.
Originally a mens watch, it is small by today's standards and well-suited for a woman or man with small wrists.
We were fortunate to acquire it in all original condition down to the beautiful ornate chrysanthemum winding crown. It has a charming historical two-generation presentation on the back.
Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the handwound movement. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calf leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
A very high-end watch in its day that offers a wonderful classic Art Deco vintage style today.
