Tiffany & Co. the internationally renowned jeweller, celebrated the arrival of ‘The Making of a New York Minute’ archival timepiece exhibition, with special guest, Nicola Andreatta, Vice President and General Manager of the Tiffany Watch Company.
Hosted by Glen Schlehuber, Vice President and Managing Director, along with 50 VIP guests welcomed the collection with a chic downtown New York inspired dinner at Kensington Street Social in Chippendale, Sydney. The event captured the energy of a New York Minute from the moment the guests arrived with a suave saxophone player on the cobblestone laneway, the brick façade washed in the iconic Tiffany blue and a background of music mixed with NYC street sounds. On a cold and frosty night in Sydney, we were definitely transported back to the Big Apple.
Inside the new CT60 and East West watch collections were displayed in front of a custom created artwork by Australian artist MISO. The New York Skyline artwork was pixelated by hundreds of fine white dots to create an energetic atmosphere behind the watches.
Guests were treated to degustation inspired shared courses, created by Executive Chef, Robert Daniels on bespoke dining plates featuring MISO’s NYC skyline artwork.
Notable guests included Tom Derickx wearing a CT60 watch and Emma Lung wearing an East West design and partner Henry Zalapa, Jimmy Niggles, Braith Anasta, Jordan and Zac Stenmark along with Jonathon Peace and Maddison McKay.
The archival exhibition centres on Tiffany’s heritage as a premier watchmaker that be traced through a timeline of brilliant innovations that extends from its founding in New York City in 1837 to the present. The collection will be on view in the Castlereagh Street, Sydney store until 6th July and Collins Street, Melbourne store from the 7th– 14th July.
