Mechanical gear rose gold cufflinks
You don’t have to be a fan of planetary gears to appreciate these intricate cufflinks, featuring fine, wire-cut cogs that rotate within a rose gold-covered gear. Racing enthusiasts will appreciate the carbon fibre backing (to save weight, of course).
The classic spherical gearknob has been recreated for your wrist, complete with five-speed pattern, plus reverse. This pair of rhodium cufflinks strike a balance between affordability and sports car style.
Borrani spinner cufflinks
Where form meets function: the ear nuts on Borrani wheel lugs are designed so that they can easily be tightened or loosened with the application of a hammer. Handy for quick wheel changes on the sports cars that they were fitted to.
Wheel guns may have made the technology redundant in racing, but it has been reinvented – literally, using aluminium from original parts – to make an extremely stylish set of cufflinks in both three-ear format as shown, or in a two-ear version.
Indy Roadster cufflinks
These Sterling Silver and brass cufflinks hark back to the skinny wheels of the 1950s racers that pounded round the Indianapolis oval.
Each pair is hand cast and includes a front and rear wheel.
Bentley original engine part cufflinks
The Bentley S2 was made for three years in the late 1950s and early 1960s, powered by a then-new aluminium V8 engine, developed with Rolls-Royce.
Now, 60 years on, bearings from that engine have been re-made into these industrial but stylish brass-mounted cufflinks, which bear the stamps that validated parts at the time.
Personalised tax disc cufflinks
Their appeal is likely to be entirely lost on a new generation of drivers who’ve known nothing except digital car records, but many will feel a nostalgic glow at the sight of the now-defunct tax disc.
Each one can be personalised with a date, car make, registration number and price to celebrate a particular anniversary or a fondly-remembered car.
Personalised number plate cufflinks
With ten characters available, you can choose the personalised plate that you, or a loved one, has always wanted for a fraction of the price of a real one.
Each set includes a white front and yellow rear plate, or two white cufflinks and there’s also the option of a metal engraved box to make it an even more special gift.
