The Tiffany thing is bonkers these days. The brand has fallen so hard and fast, sold to LVHM and isn't viable anymore. They're basically just a brand licensing company now. It meant something back when Tiffany wasn't just a shell of its former self.

Somebody please explain what a Tiffany stamp brings to the table other than literally licensing their name and font and of course artificial scarcity.

Whenever I set my PoG and CE Diver next to each other I can't help but dream of a big boy orange and black 44 mmmm.

So you mean the stamp only means something if the brand behind it is luxurious and has enough prestige ? I’m genuinely curious as when the Tiffany was “diluted” aka their brand prestige went down? What happened to the Tiffany brand other than the lvmh acquisition?

Many articles along this sentiment:
https://www.businessinsider.com/tiff...tanking-2016-8

"Tiffany CEO resigns after sales drop"
https://money.cnn.com/2017/02/05/new...nal/index.html

Declining sales, declining clout and importance/significance, nobody cares anymore. There are many other, better jewelers that are maintaining their creativity, sales and reach way beyond anything Tiffany's can do.

Besides they'll just be flipped onto Chrono24 for 5x value for suckers to buy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A 44mm Diver would be awesome.

CE Diver (42 or 44), sapphire caseback, with the old guilloche "wet" dial & yellow accents from the carbon diver.

Or, just produce the current "Japan" rose gold diver in standard diver quantities.

I'd love it if they didn't but a dead brands stamp on it (Tiffany).
