From 1860, creating work of art and giving life to innovative design is the basis of the whole Chopard production. Thanks to its superb timekeepers, the firm forged itself a reputation for reliable and high quality watches made in Switzerland till modern days. Chopard understood the need for more particular objects for male and female wrists, daring to the point where very few brands had gone before her. The present dual time it’s one of these creations and a true rarity since very few of them have appeared to auctions in the last years. The integrated bracelet realized entirely in 18k yellow gold has a charming and sought after bark decoration perfectly executed. The rectangular case is beautiful and the two crowns positioned on the bend of the case help the owner lo settle the times. The dial is perfectly divided in two symmetric rectangles with the bark structure which recalls the one on the bracelet. To better understand and read the two time zones have been used two different colors: the upper one for the local time in yellow gold a bit lighter than the rest of the structure and the lower one in a delicate dove grey, both with applied baton indexes; right in the middle of the dial is located the retailer Tiffany & Co signature. Magic was born in 1837 when Charles Lewis Tiffany founded the Tiffany company in the Manhattan district as a “stationery and fancy goods emporium”. The first store was inaugurated on 18th September 1837 in Broadway, in the centre of New York and in the years the company specialized in selling silver and jewellery while startied selling watches only in 1847. In the watch world Tiffany is very appreciated, despite for having patented in 1903 the luminescent paint used for numbers and indices, also for some of its particular creations, true beauties of design and complications. Nicely preserved, this bracelet watch is the perfect tool for those who love to travel.
