When an occasion asks for business attire, many men not only rise to the occasion with a fine and well-cut suit but also opt for a shirt with French cuffs. This allows them to add another accessory to the limited array of jewelry that is generally accepted for men: the cufflinks.
And what would be better if your cufflinks actually matched the design of the watch you are wearing? A few watch brands actually offer this option and one of them is Patek Philippe, which offers several models in different types of precious metal, some even set with diamonds. The famed Calatrava cross comes in a few different varieties, but the brand also offers cufflinks that follow the design of a specific watch model. Of course, the Nautilus is one of them, but also when you own a Gondolo or Golden Eclipse you can find cufflinks to match, down to the color dial you have your Patek Philippe in.
The cufflinks by Breguet highlight the brand’s legendary craftsmanship, and feature guilloche or grand feu enamel. Some of their designs are even asymmetrical or off-center, accentuating the craftsmanship needed to create them even further. A moveable element can be found in their “Rotor” cufflinks, which features the brand’s signature oscillating weight, spinning on the motion of your arms above a background in onyx, lapis lazuli or enamel.
Cartier has been making cufflinks for over a century. They still offer a very extensive collection, which includes legendary designs such as the Trinity, Panthere and Juste un Clou. If you prefer a cufflink that is a perfect match to the watch you are wearing, Cartier offers designs inspired by the Santos, Pasha and Ballon Bleu. More neutral are the cufflinks that feature Cartier’s famous intertwined C’s, they go with pretty much anything, and any watch.
The cufflink collection of Chopard is focussed on its longstanding legacy in the world of classic car racing. As one of the principal sponsors of the Mille Miglia, they have several cufflink designs inspired by this legendary event. Miniature versions of shift knobs and steering wheels are great accessories to any car enthusiast. For those who prefer a perfect match with the watch they are wearing does the brand also have cufflinks in the style of the Superfast and Wings Tourbillon.
