“Innovative designs: Refine Industry”

The founders, Alice and Ed knew something was missing in the accessories department for men when Ed for their wedding couldn’t find any cufflinks he liked.

From speaking to Alice from the word go, I was hit by her passion and enthusiasm for the brand and most importantly quality. You can clearly see that there is a lot of thought that goes into the designing and development of the accessories. Yes they are a small business but one that you should watch out for. They are in a number of quality retailers around the globe and online and are hitting the men’s accessories industry by storm. Watch This Space!!

The base model of the company was cufflinks and they have now expanded out into doing a full range of accessories. Bringing the British design and engineering into each individual piece.

All the models are based upon architectural design and geometry but keeping to the typical British influence throughout. Each design is produced in limited edition batches of 1000, with the number hand written on the box.

Military Hardware Process

The Military Hardware collection of cufflinks and lapel pins works with one of the oldest and most intricate techniques for producing military regalia. Using the highly engineered die and tool set, the pieces are crafted by one of the last working military armouries in the world. The new collection of cufflinks and lapel pins come in diamond, square and circle variations to pay tribute to the military symbols for land, air and sea. Developed using solid gold, solid silver and gold plated brass with low baked enamel, the cufflinks use mixed shapes to create the first Alice Made This reversible accessory. The military lapel pins compliment the cufflink shapes and each is hallmarked according to its material and finish

The Military Tailoring collection of lapel pins works with Goldwork embroidery techniques that date back to Roman times. Inspired by military geometric icons the collection draws upon this graphic dialogue to generate the designs by experimenting with heralded materials and techniques. Gold and silver metal wire embroidery is used to create a unique collection of contemporary lapel pins. Their lapel pins decorate apparel including tailoring, knitwear and outerwear.

Romain Jerome – Steampunk 46 Auto

592016

Introducing the new Romain Jerome Steampunk 46 Auto. Images and Specifications.

steelRomain Jerome Steampunk 46 Auto Gunmetal Steel

RJ have completely re-energized the look and feel of the new steampunk giving it a contemporary and fresher feel. The new watch features a smaller case and a more sporty feel to it.

Inspired by the ocean liners of the 20th Century, the new Steampunk Auto 46 is a true testimony to the Industrial Revolution and to the artistic movement that followed. Housed in a new 46 mm black PVD-coated steel, steel or red gold case, this new collection embraces a new aesthetic sharing the brand’s bold and hedonistic spirit with a twist of history.

The Steampunk inspiration is visible throughout the design of the timepiece and its retro-futuristic dial. The oversized Roman XII and VI numerals are highlighted in either steel, black gold or red gold with RJ’s “rough” finish and matching minute and hour hands. This really is an amazing detail in the new Steampunk and shows off the characteristics of the watch design.

The tips of the hands recall anchors and browse through the dial, revealing each detail as time passes. Another strong reference to the ocean liners is revealed by the seconds hand at 9 o’clock, mirroring a propeller (Moving Seconds). The dial has been created to highlight the sturdy, circular graining and rigorously beadblasted blackened bridges which recall the raw energy emanating from a coal blackened engine room. The whole look and feel of this RJ Steampunk is second to none. They really have done a beautiful job with it. Its a conversation starter, put it that way!!

Each watch is only limited to 999 pieces and pays amazing homage to contemporary history.

The Steampunk Auto Gunmetal Black is $9,950 Euros, the Steampunk Auto Red is $17,500 Euros and the Steampunk Auto Gunmetal Steel is $8,950 Euros
