LIMITED EDITION - Japan - 'The SEIKO SLIMS'

By AHW Studio

$220.00

From the 80's of old Japan, this pair is a classic example of a raw, industrially Japanese aesthetic. Functional in form yet subtly refined, it is complete in package - branded and polished, with a horizontal shape that gives any sleeve a sharper, sleeker feel...

 

THIS CUFFLINK

- Circa 1980's, Seiko, Japan.

- 20mm x 9.5mm.

- Originating from a ladies watch due to its longer, narrow shape (most commonly made for ladies back in the day!).

- Futurist and modern in aesthetic.

"GOLD CHATONS" - some Ruby Jewels are set into a "Gold Chaton", which is a ring of gold that 'cushions' the ruby, due to the softer nature of gold material. Notice the two Rubies in the watch movement that have a "Gold Chaton". The mix of craft and engineering is beautiful to behold, as all this is invisible to the regular person...

- 17 Jewels (Rubies). Jewels are ruby bearing-points inset by the watchmaker to reduce friction caused by the movement of rotating gears. 


OUR CUFFLINKS

 In our Cufflinks range, the same watch mechanism will be used, and will only vary ever so slightly between each unique piece. 

- Each piece comes with a box, gift-wrapped and also with a card detailing the watch mechanism's origin and history.
