Tiffany and Co. Ultra Thin 18k

Timepieces manufactured for and signed by a luxury retailer are actually somewhat common on the vintage marketplace, but here's one we've yet to see before--and its story doesn't end with the name on the dial!

What you see here is a stunning 18k gold dress watch retailed by Tiffany & Co. The well-known luxury jeweler based in New York has been retailing timepieces for generations. While Rolexes bearing the name may get all the attention, we can't help but swoon over any interesting vintage piece featuring that iconic logo!

This one is an elegant example powered by a manually-wound 26j Girard-Perregaux movement. With distinctive lugs and a pristine dial, its looks transcend the decade in which it was made. Ultra-thin watches never go out of style, and this one's classic looks will continue to be attractive for decades more to come. 

Another unique touch is the engraving on the case back, featuring another well-known brand name. This watch appears to have been presented to an employee of Columbia Broadcasting System. 

Though time has obscured the name in the inscription, it speaks to the high regard that CBS must have held him in, to have presented him with such a beautiful piece. 

We know collectors who seek Tiffany dials, and we know those who seek engraved case backs, but seeing them both together (and on such a lovely piece to start with!) is a wonderful treat.  So if you're seeking an absolutely stunning vintage dress watch with an interesting story, look no further, this is about as perfect as they come!
