Overview

During the 1860s and 1870s, "Tiffany Timers," as they were called, became the preferred timepiece of an impressive list of clients that included well-known public figures, wealthy businessmen-Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Whitney, and Astor, to name but a few-and many other luminaries, including President Ulysses S. Grant. This sumptuous volume surveys the design and development of the glorious timepieces Tiffany & Co. has created since its inception 150 years ago as the first and finest purveyor of Swiss-made watch and clock movements in America.

This book is a must-have for all lovers of Tiffany and collectors of watches and clocks.
