During the 1860s and 1870s, “Tiffany Timers,” as they were called, became
the preferred timepiece of an impressive list of clients that included
well-known public figures, wealthy businessmen—Rockefeller, Vanderbilt,
Morgan, Whitney, and Astor, to name but a few—and many other luminaries,
including President Ulysses S. Grant.
This sumptuous volume surveys the design and development of the glorious
timepieces Tiffany & Co. has created since its inception 150 years
ago as the first and finest purveyor of Swiss-made watch and clock movements
in America. In this latest book in his beautiful Tiffany series, company
design director John Loring celebrates the role Tiffany has played in making
the watch a treasured possession, a vital component of every jewelry collection,
and an indispensable fashion accessory for men and women.
Lavish illustrations, featuring not only photographs of magnificent
watches and clocks but also exquisite work studies by the designers, complement
the colorful and informative text. This book is a must-have for all lovers
of Tiffany and collectors of watches and clocks.
