This handsome adaptation takes its inspiration from a luxurious calendar watch in The Met collection. The original watch was made about 1650 by Thomas Alcock, who was recorded as working in London in 1630.
The concentric chapter rings of the unusual 17th-century dial indicate the time of tides (presumably at London Bridge), mean solar time, the age of the moon in its monthly cycle, and the day of the month. The moon's phases can be read though the circular aperture in the center disk.
The dial of our contemporary watch expresses the stylish panache of its British antecedent.
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.
