Fresh to the market, the present watch is of great interest to collectors because of the Tiffany & Co. signature on the dial. In rare instances, the most important retailers are permitted to personalize the dial with their trademark. Such is the case for this late 1970s reference 16013.
The reference 16013 is relatively scarce and examples signed Tiffany & Co. are very rare indeed, only a handful are known publically and according to our research this is the first example with Tiffany & Co. dial to be offered at auction.
Tiffany and Co.
Originally founded as Tiffany & Young by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in 1837, the firm is now one of the world's foremost jewellers. Few companies have captured the public imagination to such an extent as Tiffany & Co. The firm's creations have been worn by members of some of the wealthiest nineteenth and twentieth centuries families, including the Astors, the Vanderbilts, and the prominent banker and watch enthusiast Henry Graves Junior.
