    No shit :p. But it does look dainty - how big is it? Maybe it's your Panerai juggernaut that's distorted my perspective on these things! You're right though, it is beautiful. Also wondering who made it. Show us what's inside!

    The movement should include the name. Whether or not that is the same manufacture of the case, who knows???

    It looks like a modern watch (made in the last 20 years), and as such would be a bog standard ETA movement inside a precious metal case if the movement is mechanical.

    The valuable (from a horological POV) Tiffany watches are the co-branded ones, and even among them there is a hierarchy e.g. PP-Tiffany > Rolex-Tiffany > Baume&Mercier-Tiffany.

    Yeah, I was pretty sure the Rolex Tiffany watches had the Rolex name on the watch as well, but I wasn't sure how other manufactures handled that.

    iirc, all the co-branded offerings had the tiffany name and watch brand name on the watch face.


    its maybe 39mm inc crown, not small at all on the wrist. but very dainty compared to the panny.

    here is the inside. as apropos said, i imagine its ETA or something. no branding on the movement.

    it is hand wound mechanical, not quartz. they no longer make this one, but i remember when they came out with it, i loved it then as i do now. i do not think its a co-branded effort, just tiffany and likely ETA. not a particularly fancy movement, but decorated well enough. i think it is a truly elegant watch. a beauty imo.

    Very cool, learn something new every day.


    Stitches, thanks for taking the time to take the movement pic.

    Agreed. Whatever the movement, it's very unusual aesthetically and I like it. For me, that's a nice size too. Can I have it?

    Quote:It must be because of my rather small wrists haha. It's a 36mm case so it's actually on the smaller side in terms of size, but it does have some height to it.

    Thicker movement, due to the number of complications involved.

    thanks! :slayer:


    yup. all the watch with a ton of complications i know of are very thick. i believe that is why all the most complicated watches are pocket watches. the famous PP graves is like the size of a grapefruit i think. its the only way to do it, as far as i know.
