My daily routine doesn’t require me to wear or even own a pair of cufflinks, but I’m sure the day I do need a pair these mechanical versions from watchmaker Romain Gauthier will be well out of my price range. The cufflinks will be officially unveiled at this year’s Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel, Switzerland, and feature a mechanical pushpiece locking and unlocking system comprised of over 45 micro-components. Not only are they easy to put on, but apparently the mechanics also serve as a safety system ensuring the cufflinks won’t accidentally fall off while worn. They’ll eventually be available in 3 different finishes including a mix of gold and titanium and straight-up titanium, and that alone should give you a rough idea of what their price tag will be like.
