Our bold watch is adapted from a traveling clock-watch with alarm in The Met collection, which was produced around 1680 by Thomas Tompion (British, 1639-1713), the most renowned English clockmaker of his day.

The movement of Tompion's watch represents a short-lived experiment with the newly invented balance spring, in which the fusee, a cone-shaped pulley, was omitted. The handsome silver case and dial are by Nathan Delander (British, recorded 1668/9, died probably before 1697), one of Tompion's favoured casemakers.

This watch represents a collaboration between The Met Store and Tateossian London. The line combines inspiration from The Met collection with the renowned artisanship of the innovative jewelry house, for men's accessories that truly stand apart.
