Tiffany - CT60 Dual Time

| No comment
Following the successful launch of the CT60 collection last year, Tiffany is now introducing a brand new model featuring a second time zone indication, the CT60 Dual Time.

The new timepiece maintains the design code of the CT60 collection, whose main style elements were inspired by a Tiffany gold watch gifted to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt also worn during the historic Yalta Conference.

The Tiffany & Co. watch given to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945 

The CT60 of the name refers to the initials of Tiffany’s founder  — Charles Lewis Tiffany — and to the brand’s establishment of the "New York Minute", one of the city’s first mainstay clocks outside the store.

A very useful complication for travellers and whoever needs to interact with people in another country, the second time zone function featured in the CT60 Dual Time is extremely easy to use.

The local time zone can be quickly adjusted by using the two push-buttons which give the watch the look of a chronograph. The 2 o’ clock pusher is used to move the main hour hand forwards, whereas the 4 o’ clock pusher moves it backwards.

The home time is indicated by a hand with an arrowhead blue tip on the outer 24-hour ring. To make it easier to differentiate between day and night, blue numerals are used for the top half of the ring, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., and red for the lower half.

The date, positioned at 6 o'clock on a micro dial, can be adjusted via a corrector located on the case band at 8 o'clock. Continuous seconds are indicated by the red-tipped hand.

Offering water resistance to 100 metres / 330 feet, the 40 mm rounded cases of the Tiffany CT60 Dual Time houses a Swiss self-winding movement hand-finished using the traditional Côtes de Genève, Colimaçon and Perlage techniques and visible through the sapphire crystal case back. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and equipped with an advanced shock absorption system, the movement guarantees a power reserve of 42 hours.

The new model will be available in three variations: stainless steel, white soleil finished dial, black alligator strap (ref. 36813881), stainless steel, blue soleil finished dial, steel bracelet (ref. 36813903), and 18 kt rose gold, white soleil finished dial, black alligator strap (ref. 36813911) with retail prices of US$ 6,300, US$ 6,800 and US$ 14,500 respectively.

All dials are enhanced by gold poudré numerals, a decorating technique where real gold is crushed into a fine powder, made into a mixture and painted onto the dial.

The new Tiffany CT60 Dual Time will be on sale in all Tiffany stores worldwide from September 2016.
