Patek Philippe Releases Special-Edition Tiffany & Co. Watches

Harkening back to days when leading Swiss brands would often produce watches in conjunction with major retailers, Patek Philippe is celebrating its unusually long association with Tiffany & Co. with a pair of special-edition watches. A men’s Annual Calendar ($51,500) and a women’s Gondolo ($29,200) mark the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Patek Philippe boutique inside Tiffany’s Manhattan flagship store, and the 161st year of the duo’s business relationship. The limited production—100 pieces of the men’s and 50 of the women’s model—means these timepieces will likely be gone quickly. (212.218.1240, www.patek.com)
