Since its inception as a small family business more than 100 years ago, Tourneau has since established itself as the top purveyor of "the world's finest selection of watches," boasting a comprehensive range of luxury brands and styles from contemporary to classic, as well as the world's largest selection of certified pre-owned watches. The venerable brand continues to forge into the future with the newest limited-edition timepieces of the Tourneau New York Collection.

At once modernistic and timeless, the TNY Collection embodies Tourneau's expertise and knowledge in a clean contemporary design inspired by the company's native NYC. The 24-piece collection includes three special editions, the Rush Hour, Bravest and Gotham. Each watch in the trio embodies the extraordinary characteristics of the beloved hub, from its endless hustle to the heroic firefighters who once saved it, to the dark energy of the city that never sleeps.

The all-black special editions each feature a large face with Superluminova luminescent hands and numerals in different colors—Rush Hour's yellow hands nod to the constant stream of taxis, Bravest goes with fire-engine red and Gotham puts black on black to capture the city's dynamic nights. They make a bold statement without seeming over the top, with an oversized dial and ultra-slim bezel to enhance the light aesthetic. Beneath their sleek surfaces, the watches rely on 100-percent Swiss-made mechanics with hand-wound movement and a 42-hour power reserve.

The dial on each piece is composed of two separate plates and finishes for the illusion of depth and volume and topped off with sapphire crystals and 24mm black rubber straps with DLC ardillion buckles. Despite the level of luxury, they're built to withstand the rigor of everyday wear.

The TNY Collection is available exclusively through Tourneau with prices ranging from $1,250 up to $9,800. The special-edition Rush Hour, Bravest and Gotham retail for $2,950. For more information head to one of Tourneau's 38 stores located across the U.S. or visit Tourneau online.
