Man of Many was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of the Tiffany & Co’s CT60 Watch Collection, held at the stunning Rockpool Restaurant in Sydney. Unbeknownst to most, Tiffany & Co. have been in the watch game for a while, since 1853 in fact. It’s founder even installed a clock outside the New York store well before public clocks were commonplace, and it’s this long history and elegance that was evident on the night.
Tiffany East West
What immediately caught our eye, as we were met by the rep Drew, was the Tiffany East West with its dial set horizontally instead of vertically, perfect for the automotive enthusiast. Our favourite was by far the white in stainless steel with gold poudré numerals and features, complimented by a black alligator strap. The case is fairly wide across the wrist at 42 x 25 mm with a Swiss-made quartz movement inside. A design that was originally inspired by a purse watch, they’ve managed to pull off a manly and masculine sophistication.
CT60 Men’s Chronograph
By far the stand-out of the night was the CT60 Men’s Chronograph in 18k rose gold. If you haven’t figured it out already, the watch is named after founder Charles Tiffany, the inventor of the New York Minute. Probably the flashiest piece among the collection, this CT60 Chronograph featured a brown soleil dial with gold poudré numerals.
Put simply, it’s a show stopper. It’s fairly sizeable on the wrist with a 42 mm case but with plenty of space on the back to show off the self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The watch is also water resistant to 100 meters but if you have any sense you won’t be taking this swimming.
