Classy steampunk cufflinks made from a matched pair of vintage mechanical watch movements mounted on silver plated cuff links for looking sharp. These watch movements have a beautiful gold gear detail. Each watch movement has 17 real ruby jewel bearings, and is more than 75 years old, having done its duty as a working watch - the exposed gears are intricate and fascinating. Most of the watches I work with date between 1900 and 1950.

These are sturdy soldered cufflinks - NOT glued like most of the others watch cufflnks you will see - I use a two step soldering method to preserve the quality and integrity of the watch without applying direct flame like the torch soldering, so there is less burnt metal for a cleaner solder. Guaranteed to last.

The watch movements are about .75" long and .75" wide.

The Victorian era was a bridge between old traditions and new technologies. At the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert received the first mechanical keyless wind watches, making pocket watches and watch fobs popular for both men and women until the mid 20th century. While pocket watches had been worn for more than a century, wrist watches were introduced around 1900, called "wristlets" were introduced, in part because of the development of a more affordable jewel bearings production process, which made smaller, more accurate watches possible. Assumed to be a passing fad, wrist watches caught on and were most popular in the 1920s and 1930s, which is why most of the watches I work with are Art Deco from this period. An emblem of a past era of craftsmanship, these mechanical watches have real or synthetic jewel bearings, originally made with ruby, garnet, diamond, and sapphire. Many watches have the name of the watch maker, intricate tooling or design work, seen only when the watch was repaired, cleaned, and maintained. Celebrate analog!

A great gift for your father, brother, husband, groomsman, colleague, or boy friend!
