On Taffin’s Time

    James de Givenchy for Taffin, the renowned jewelry designer who sells his one-of-a-kind creations exclusively from his by-appointment Fifth Avenue salon, unveiled a collection of signature men’s watches. “I really wanted to sport my own watch,” says de Givenchy, who spent four years developing a piece that reflected his personal style. The retro-styled timepiece is defined by its simplistic dial with bold numerals and classic proportions, but it houses a contemporary Swiss automatic movement. Only 200 editions will be made in each of the following metals: stainless steel for $6,000, or white, yellow, or rose gold for $18,000. The men’s model comes on the heels of his highly successful women’s gold Stella timepiece, named for his daughter. (212.421.6222)
