    Default Tourbillon style cufflinks – by TF Est.1968

    Something new and unique at Gem by Carati, are ‘tourbillon’ style cufflinks by TF Est.1968.

    “Encased in a cage of steel, sporting an array of carbon details, a watchmaking mechanism in perfect working order accompanies every movement of the wearer's wrist. Through what appears to be the transparent crystal of a watch case, the eye is beckoned towards a voyeuristic display of technical achievement. Design-wise, the lack of conventional stem accentuates the functional aspect of the piece, preventing it from rotating on its own axis. A neat and snappy precision spring clasp system holds the piece in place, anchoring it firmly to the shirt.”

    Really neat cufflinks if you're a watch guy!

    So is it functional?

    If so, oh crap.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    damn cool. Not much point in any movement if they have no realistic functionality is there?


    If people noticed cuff links more, I'd consider a set, but it just seems pointless to blow $500 on a completely unnoticed attire detail.
    Of all the cufflinks I've owned, I've never had anybody comment on how cool or different some of them were.
    These *ARE* cool for sure, but seems rather pointless since its a detail very few pay a stitch of attention to.

    You don't buy these because you want other people to notice them...

    I picked up a set last night for my step dad:
