Bluebird cufflinks

Bluebird cufflinks


Own a part from one of the most revolutionary speed machines ever built, with these Bluebird K7 cufflinks that are made with some of the original aluminium from the multiple record-breaking boat.

Donald Campbell set seven water speed records in his jet-engined Bluebird and was attempting to push the benchmark even higher when a crash on Lake Coniston claimed his life in 1967. The wreckage was raised 34 years later, and has been restored to its previous record-breaking glory.

As part of that process, a portion of the metal was reclaimed and has been used to create this limited edition run of cufflinks that commemorate the British speed hero and his pioneering craft. Cast in the original aluminium, combined with sterling silver, each of the 100 pairs produced come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Campbell’s daughter, Gina.
