Tiffany Watch Co. Ltd enlarges its Atlas Dome line with the launch of an opulent gold timepiece crafted in a choice of 18-carat red or yellow gold. Quintessential Tiffany & Co., the classic gentlemen’s Atlas Dome Gold takes its design cues from the Atlas Clock placed above the entrance to Tiffany’s flagship property on Fifth Avenue.
The prominent Roman numerals of the Atlas Dome are paramount to the personality of this watch. Reminiscent of those featured on the Atlas Clock, the numerals take center stage allowing for a highly visible view of the passing hours.
Created in rich 18-carat red or yellow gold – a metal that lends this watch its characteristic warmth and splendor- the lustrously polished case is available in 37.5 mm and 29 mm and carries the hallmark Tiffany & Co. logo on the crown, dial and buckle.
Set on an iridescent silver-colored dial, the 3-dimensional gold Roman numerals sit in high relief on the raised rim that encircles the dial. The effect of elevating the hour markers allows the numerals to be the true protagonists of the watch in keeping with the DNA of the Atlas family.
The date window –conveniently placed at VI o’clock- and the diamond polished 18-carat red or yellow gold hour, minute and second hands never come into contact with the hour markers on the rim providing a clear, unobstructed view of the time.
The case back on the automatic models is transparent allowing for a view of the impeccable Swiss automatic movement complete with a Tiffany decoration of the rotor.
Both the Atlas Dome red and yellow gold models are presented on a handsome brown alligator strap with a polished gold buckle to match. Water-resistant to 50 meters, the Atlas Dome is a triumph of legibility, design and elegance.
In order to cater to as wide a variety of tastes as possible, the Atlas Dome models also come with a black dial and a black alligator strap. The smaller sized models are also available with a quartz movement.
