The famous East West collection by Tiffany continues to turn heads with its rectangular case featuring a dial offset by 45° to the right and placing 12 o’clock in line with the crown in the traditional 3 o’clock position. This makes reading the time especially simple for those such as yours truly who spend much of the day with their forearms stretched out in front of them for typing on a computer keyboard. This new self-winding model available in three versions will also be of interest to others who are fans of distinctive designs and original watches, doubtless attracting questions and amused comments on the dial direction.
The dynamics of these 12 numerals pointing eastwards is accentuated by the radial guilloché motif on the dial, symbolizing the sky reflected in Manhattan skyscrapers. Steel or gold for the case, blue or white for the dial and hands : Tiffany offers clients a chance to choose the color of their own success story.
