Wear a Watch Like the One FDR Donned at the Yalta Conference

Roosevelt's timepiece helped inspire Tiffany's CT60 Collection

The “CT” in Tiffany and Co.’s CT60 watch collection’s name comes from founder Charles Lewis Tiffany; but the inspiration for the collection itself has quite a bit more historic roots. U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was presented with the timepiece below as a birthday gift, and he ended up wearing it at the historic Yalta Conference in 1945.
