  • Catalogue Essay

    With its new “Time for Speed” collection, Tiffany & Co. has launched a limited edition mechanical clock that masterfully merges horology, automotive design, and jewelry craftsmanship into one exquisite objet d'art. Inspired by Tiffany & Co.'s rich heritage of producing racing trophies by hand, each aluminum clock replicates a 1950s race car in the house's iconic Tiffany Blue. Durable rubber tires with stainless steel spokes exude retro styling, while the brushed steel aperture evokes a racing number, indicating the hours and minutes with crisp precision.

    This limited edition clock made exclusively for the Japanese market dazzles with 192 brilliant-cut diamonds, including eye-catching 1-carat stones at each wheel's center. Pavé diamonds embellish the bezel in glittering contrast to the smooth Tiffany Blue metal body. Details such as the "T&CO" grille and its flagship Fifth Avenue store inspired "5" bumper provide tasteful hints of Tiffany &Co. 's storied history. The clockwork revs to life under a helmet-domed glass, offering a glimpse of the L’Epée in-house cal. 1855 MHD mechanics in motion.

    With just a turn of the steering wheel to set time and a pull-back winding mechanism, the “Time for Speed” race car clock playfully blends heritage and innovation. Offered for the first time at Phillips, the present example, one of a limited edition of 50 pieces is a treasure destined for collectors and connoisseurs worldwide.
