they're kind of fugly, but for 20 dollars (if you like them) you're not losing a lot of cash.

no like,very tacky

wouldn't mind pair of tasteful graphite colored carbon fiber faced cufflinks though.. just not the spinning invicta blinged ones.

but here is the questions, since invicta knocks off everyones design, who was the original mastermind behind those? The screws make me think cartier.

they spin? Ewww...

I'll pass until they install some strobe lights and engrave a few $$$ signs on them. I mean, if you're going to show some bling, you might as well do it right.

Only appropriate at a watchmaker's convention; not versatile enough. Would not buy.

(Seems like a corporate gift... my dad gave me dozens of tie tacks/tie clips from the 50's through the 70's with, like, oil derricks and bulldozers and stuff on them)
