Tiffany & Co. Brings its Historical Timepieces to Singapore

Watches from Tiffany's museum are on show in conjunction with Singapore Fashion Week.

Tiffany & Co.‘s historical watches will be on show for the first time in Singapore from October 26 to 30, one of the events the New York jeweller is staging in its role as official jeweller of Singapore Fashion Week 2016.

The timepieces on show reflect the diverse history of Tiffany’s watchmaking, ranging from a fancy cocktail watch dating from 1939 to the distinctive Atlas, one of the jeweller’s quintessential creations of the 1980s (pictured above). In fact, firm founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1837 got into the watch business not long after its establishment, retailing its first pocket watches in 1847. And in 1851 it became the first retailer of Patek Philippe in America.
