1950's Tiffany & Co. Ladies Vintage Watch - 14K White Gold with Diamonds

Tiffany & Co.

Item No. 7957

In the 1950's, 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 were 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 white gold and diamond Tiffany & Co. watch made by Movado for the prestigious retailer.

While Movado has moved downmarket in the last several decades, during Movado's glorious period from 1912 through the 1950's, when such innovations as the polyplan movement, Calendomatic, and exceptional in-house chronographs pushed the envelope of horological technology, and original designs such as the Museum watch took their place in history, their wristwatches enjoyed a level of prestige reserved only for works of the very fine watchmakers.

Its 14K white gold case is bejewelled with 10 full size original factory set diamonds. Larger than most on watches of this style, they have the fire and brilliance you would expect from very high quality original Tiffany & Co. diamonds.

Its lovely case is in better than near mint condition. Its silver Tiffany & Co. dial shows only light signs of aging. It could be expertly restored if you prefer the look of a freshly restored watch...please inquire. And its very fine Movado movement is clean and keeping very accurate time.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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.

If you are looking for a special treasure for someone in your life, this is it. Modern Tiffany watches don't match the charm and romance of this vintage original.
