Someone please turn back timebecause they just don’t make clocks like they used to. However, in Downtown Sarasota at Antiques and Chatchkes you’ll find a rare Tiffany & Company Carriage Clock dating back to the 1880s. The exquisite key-wind timekeeper features a vintage brass frame with beveled glass, a sewing handle and porcelain face. The chronograph backplate is deeply engraved ‘Tiffany & Co.’ for authentic validation. An arbiter of class and style, the New York City company, created in 1837, has evolved as America’s most ubiquitously recognized fine jewelry and luxury goods purveyor. The antiquarian time-teller was commissioned by Patek Philippe & Co., a super-luxury Swiss watch manufacturer founded in 1851 in Geneva. The movement within sumptuously ticks from seconds to minutes, as many experts and aficionados consider Patek Philippe one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers of all time—world-renowned for its complicated mechanical designs—which heightens the value of the carriage clock significantly.  Antiques and Chatchkes Owner Ken Davidson acknowledges, “The clock is in impeccable condition being of that age from the Victorian Period—mostly attributed to the genuine leather carrying case the ultra-wealthy used back then to transport it from place to place.” If a timeless provision is what you seek, this cosmopolitan piece of history seems like a [clock]wise decision. It does indeed come with said leather case, as well as the colloquially iconic ‘Tiffany Blue’ suede pull-string bag.
