At first glance I also thought it was something from Montblanc.  Then I saw RM on the links and realized that is one of his bolts (like on his watches).   To be honest, I don't care for his watches either.  Still thanks for sharing, its always interesting to see what is on the market (both in the world of watches and cufflinks).

I used to not be a Pam fan - but I got an absolute huge 127 and I end up wearing it more than my Rolex Sub just because it is easy to read.

I have no idea what models. I am not a watch guy. One looks like yours with a second hand and you have to wind it. The other is automatic. One by my uncle and one by my father. (My father is a watch guy).

Hi Stitch,  I agree, Breguet makes some stunning cufflinks!  I've seen them in person and photos do not do them justice.    I didn't know they also offered them with pieces of black dial.  Until now I had only seen them with the silver/white.   If I owned a Breguet I might be very tempted...I'm sure my wife is relieved I don't own the watch so I don't "need" the cufflinks.

Funny, I have the opposite experience finding my sub easier to read. But then my Luminor is only 44mm and doesn't have the contrasting hands of the 127.

yeah, i saw them in person (both) at the AD in manhattan when i was there last month. they are gorgeous, and have a really nice weight and feel to them. i wanted them so baaaaaad. lol, "need." know exactly what you mean.

like i "needed" the double tourbillon and the minute repeater the kind lady showed me when i was there. she even, without my asking, gave me a loupe to view the dial and movement up close with. gaaaaaah.

I originally saw the Breguet cufflinks at the their boutique in Manhattan.  I agree, they had a great weight to them.  I prefer cufflinks that have some heft and don't feel flimsy.  My experience at the boutique was much like you described...definitely a great place for anyone that is interested in fine watches to visit.  I used to like the cufflinks from AP that match the RO, but I think they are very overpriced for steel, and it might look a bit too matchy (like a box set of tie and pocket square).  Oh well, not buying those gives me a start on another watch that I might "Need" wink.gif.

smile.gif same here for my feelings towards the AP links. patek sure makes some pretty ones as well. "need" those.

How do you deal with such a big watch inside your shirt cuff? I can't even button some cuffs with my measly SMP in them...
