Nicola Andreatta was born in Italy in 1973, and found himself immersed in the watchmaking world from an early age through his father, who was head of Timeo SA, a well-known watchmaking outsourcing company.

Nicola Andreatta has spent the entirety of his professional career in watchmaking. In 1997 he graduated from the Catholic University of Milan with a qualification in Business Administration and Economics, and began his career in Asia, where he worked for a number of luxury watch brands in design and merchandising. On his return to Europe in 2001 he consulted for several prestigious watch brands.
In 2003 Nicola Andreatta took over the management of Timeo SA and created his own watch brand, N.O.A. Watches, acting as President and CEO until 2013, when he was appointed Vice President and General Manager of Tiffany & Co. Swiss Watches SAGL. Today, he is responsible for the entire watchmaking division of the American jewellery house. Under Nicola Andreatta’s direction, Tiffany & Co. has developed and marketed several new watch collections, including the iconic Tiffany CT60, inspired by the father of the brand and inventor of the New York Minute, Charles Lewis Tiffany.
