Tiffany’s Metro 3-hand watch is one of the brand’s most beautiful new items to date. It’s no wonder why fashion and horology critics and enthusiasts alike have all raved about such a sophisticated and dazzling timepiece. Whether one chooses the more pristine stainless steel or the extremely refined 18-carat rose gold finish, it’s shimmer shines just as brightly. A crown of eye-catching diamonds increases the price tag tenfold but makes for a dazzling dial that will leave everyone else green with envy.
Precious is the perfect word to describe Tiffany’s Metro 3-hand watch, especially if one purchases one of the diamond-crowned selections. With that said, this particular timepiece is perfect to be looked at, but not necessarily to be worn for every day. Such an expensive piece, with all its fine finishes and details, is vulnerable to external elements that will leave it less refined than when it was bought. Utmost care is vital to maintaining this majestic an item, which makes owning it that much more difficult than simply wearing it.
