Watch brand to complement timepieces with "sophisticated accessories".
Luxury watch brand Richard Mille has launched its first collection of cufflinks after 11 years of making only timepieces.
The Swiss brand said that the launch of the cufflinks came a natural progression in its “continual quest for innovation” and the desire for other challenges.
The titanium cufflinks have been designed in reference to the brand’s timepieces and have take inspiration from the ways in which its watches are made. The collection has been two years in progress and each cufflink contains no less than 38 components.
The feature a patented mechanism that opens the bars using a push-piece. Unlike the classic mechanism, where a pivoting bar on the cufflink holds the double cuff in place, Richard Mille’s design fastens the cuff using two titanium bars, which open with a simple press of the push-pieces and close by pressing on the top plate.
A diamond-set version is also expected to follow, at a later date.
The cufflinks’ upper surfaces are satin-brushed, bead-blasted and bevelled by hand, creating an exceptional finish of the utmost elegance. The cufflinks are available this month, and have two-year guarantees.
