Tiffany Men's, Ladies' Quartz Watches Review: Atlas, Mark, Diamonds

Updated on January 6, 2015

Tiffany Watches

Tiffany watches display a sense of aristocratic confidence and calm that cannot be fully expressed in jewelry, mainly because of lack of space. The stark luxurious blend of stainless steel and diamonds – and many Tiffany timepieces incorporate diamonds – projects this “untouchable” coolness, and complements whatever else the owner might be wearing from the brand. Especially the dials, clean or paved with gems, but without unnecessary ornamentation, contribute to this effect.

Tiffany notably collaborated with high-end luxury Swiss watchmaker Patek Philippe, participating in the design of the trademark Gondolo model, as well as a complicated chronograph, and ladies Twenty~4. The union between two companies shows that Tiffany don't hesitate relying on others' expertise – they have enough of their own to feel completely assured in this respect. Additional models and collections include cocktail watches, Atlas, Mark, and Grand.

Collections

Three main collections comprise the bulk of Tiffany's timepieces assortment:

  • Atlas: an established line of design based on Roman numerals. In jewelry, be it charms or bracelets, the signs acted as graphic ornamentation; here they play an essential role of indexing the hours. The numerals can be large or small, appearing on both round and square watches. Some of the designs bear similarity (perhaps not surprisingly) to Corum Romulus pieces.

  • Mark watches exhibit a classic, formal aesthetic of perfect symmetry. Slender numerals spread on round or tonneau shaped dials, lance hands and a date complication complete the picture. Face color is always white, and no diamonds – this is a formal, office-building, or strictly business oriented line.

  • Grand collection consists of men's and ladies rectangular watches that introduce color and opt for Arabic numerals – an alternative to the Mark that nevertheless retains core classic characteristics. Colors include lilac, blue, and copper.

  • Diamonds appear on the bezel and, in luxurious pieces, pave the dials. Interestingly, Tiffany don't encrust the bracelets with diamonds, and not because they can't, but because they won't, preferring the watches to demonstrate restraint, and complement the jewelry from a different perspective.
