In the 1930's like today, no name better captured the idea of embracing the best life had to offer than that of Tiffany & Co. One of their special offerings to their most discriminating female clients was a line of jeweled watches emblazoned with the Tiffany & Co. name on the dial. Although the maker's name was often hidden, the retailer contracted with a number of the world's fine watch and jewelry making firms to produce these treasured timepieces.
Today's offering showcases this stunning platinum, diamond, and sapphire Tiffany & Co. watch.
Bejewelled with radiant original factory set diamonds and sapphires over all the bezel and tops of the lugs, the finely decorated platinum case is stunning!
Its original signed Tiffany & Co. movement that traveled with the watch was broken beyond repair and has been replaced with a Swiss made quartz movement that never needs to be wound to confirm its authenticity. We have viewed the original movement to confirm its authenticity.
Its original platinum case is ornately engraved all along both sides. The beautifully engraved back shows several indentions. On the wrist it presents in very good condition.
The silver dial has been previously restored. Please inquire if you would like a fresh refinishing.
One of our Master Watchmakers has installed a new battery. The watch comes on fitted with its original or vintage black cord band. Please inquire if you would like a brand new black cord strap installed that replicates the original.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
