You know the phrase 'New York minute'? It was coined by Tiffany & Co.'s founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, who introduced a towering nine-foot tall clock above his Broadway store in 1853, thus giving thousands of New Yorkers the gift of timekeeping for free. Whether you know the story of the famous Tiffany & Co. Atlas clock or not (FYI, the clock now resides above the store on Fifth Avenue), there's many a tale to behold in the jeweller's new travelling collection, The Making of the New York Minute.
With a focus on archival timepieces, heritage and innovation, the travelling exhibit is timed perfectly to coincide with Tiffany & Co.'s new Tiffany CT60 watch collection. The exhibition features stunning timepieces dating from as far back as 1851, with former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Tiffany timepiece a highlight from the collection. The archival exhibition, which travels around the world, lands in Australia on June 28 where it will stay for three weeks. Don't miss your chance to take a peep at a fascinating part of the iconic New York brand's history.
Tiffany & Co.'s The Making of the New York Minute will be on show at Sydney's Castlereagh Street flagship from June 28-July 6 and then Melbourne's Collins Street store from July 7-14.
