What I want for Christmas...

It is summer (and it is really hot at the moment!), but I thought that if I want Santa to get me this gift for Christmas I should let him know in advance...


What I want for Christmas...


I'm not good in paint/powerpoint - if I was better I would have made the 'bezel' part thicker.But you get the idea - those would be kick-ass cufflinks!cheeky

Please Santa, pleeeeeeeaaaaase... Oh, and Gary wants a pair too
Me too!

Where does the queue form?? cheeky JB
There's no harm in asking...

Seriously, after my last discussion with Gary I convinced myself that it would be worth me taking the  time and effort to put a little proposal together and formally ask VC if the cufflinks can be done. My guess is that the proposal would be considered by the Cabinotiers team, and since the project is not about a watch, I am not confident that it would be accepted. But hey, no harm in asking, eh? So, since I'm going to go through the process anyway, those of you who are seriously interested please let me know by pm - if there's a group order it might be taken more seriously.  Oh, and I need to repost the picture, I had forgotten a crucial detail on the cufflink:
or just the moonphase! I have been asking this from

VC for sooooo long.  They'll end up accepting so I just shut upcheeky
you mean like this?

That would look good as well, although 1) the horological link would be a bit weaker and 2) the engraver would have to make the moons much bigger than  the current version for the size of the cufflink to make sense (which is not a problem in itself). In fact, your solution might be easier to execute than mine (the way mine is set up, a crystal would almost be needed to protect the EP dial and the printed days). I'd be happy with 'your' version if VC said yesyes I have heard rumours that some long term employees might have received a pair fo cufflinks with the moonphase  - if the rumour is true, would love to see what they look like... Cheers,  Francois

Yup... That's what I want. They then complement my watch. It matters not whether someone else 'gets' it or not! Only question now is whether to have 2 pairs... So you can mix, or have two the same to match the mood! G
That would be perfect, Alex!

I would love just the moonphase for the cuff links.  This may be the only way I will ever get those little marvelous sculptures.  4Js has stopped wearing his 47212 around me because I make him too nervous.  devil  (Joking of course.) Best, respo

I think / hope / expect to be number 2 in the queue Francois! Loving your work! G

Well, if we are numbering them...
07/25/2013 - 15:20
I request the number to match my watch ! This thread is wonderful. We need great cuff links ! Alex's idea of the incredible engraved moon is fantastic and to be able to get these in multiple metal would help everyone with their various watches, or for those friends who do not yet have this moon on a watch, the first step towards that goal Sign me up! Best, Joe
I like your spirit Joe!
