History and Luxury at Tiffany’s

Last week I had the pleasure of spending an evening at Tiffany & Co. in Boston to preview their new watch collection, CT60, before it was unveiled to the public.  The collection was named for Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of Tiffany’s and the man who coined the phrase “in a New York minute”.

The collection is stunning (as expected!) with a cohesiveness steeped in rich history. The inspiration for the collection was the gold watch that Tiffany’s gifted to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945. Upgraded with a new modern design and the finest Swiss craftsmanship, the CT60 collection is a perfect balance of past and present.

I viewed the collection with two of my favorite ladies; Noelle of Rue Le Chat and Shauna of Like So Pretty.  We sipped champagne in the private showing room while learning all about Charles Lewis Tiffany, the watch that inspired the collection, and of course, trying on all of the different watches!

The collection features watches in three different sizes 34mm, 40mm, and 42mm and ranges in price from $4,250 to $15,500.  The limited edition 18 karat rose gold calendar watch (only 60 were made worldwide) retails for $19,000, however I am sure they have already sold out!

Each watch subtly pays homage to the famous phrase “In a New York Minute — 60 seconds of pure possibility,” which I was surprised to learn was coined by Tiffany himself. In 1853 Tiffany’s  installed the first public clock, a 9-foot Atlas clock, which sat on the top of his storefront. Many New Yorkers counted on this clock to help keep them on schedule! Today that same clock is displayed at the Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue Flagship store in New York City.

In addition to the CT60 collection, Tiffany’s also released a smaller 3-piece East West collection that “turns the rules of watchmaking on its side” with its sideways rectangular dial. This unique style (starting at $3,500) is perfect for men and women who are looking for a classic, yet unique style!

After viewing the entire collection, Noelle and I tested out our favorite watches while we finished our champagne. Thank you to Tiffany’s for a lovey evening of luxury, glamour, and history!

Early in December I decided to give myself a little luxury gift for 2015. I subscribed to Oui Please, a bi-monthly parcel service “delivering the finest full sized French apparel, accessories, beauty, home, jewelry & epicure products straight to your doorstep.”

Anyone who knows me knows that this is right up my alley. A box of (full-sized!) luxury French products delivered right to my door? I am almost mad that I didn’t come up with this idea first! Their first box shipped in mid-December and it definitely did not disappoint. Titled “Paris, I Miss You”, it was filled with products from Paris-based designers including perfumes, bath products, jewelry, leather goods, and more. February’s box is titled “Dreaming of Normandie” and I just cannot wait to find out whats inside.
