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.
