“The first verifiable claim for a practically used bicycle belongs to German Baron Karl von Drais, a civil servant to the Grand Duke of Baden in Germany. Drais invented his Laufmaschine (German for “running machine”) in 1817, that was called Draisine (English) or draisienne (French) by the press. Karl von Drais patented this design in 1818, which was the first commercially successful two-wheeled, steerable, human-propelled machine, commonly called a velocipede, and nicknamed hobby-horse or dandy horse.” There is more to a a set of bicycle cufflinks; they are history and lifestyle in a box. The set comes in an exquisite leather box with velvet inlay.
“Depending on the rifle, bullets typically travel between 800 and 1000m/s (2600 and 3400feet per second) at the moment they leave the rifle’s barrel. The bullet slows down considerably due to friction with the air over a distance. The first half of the nineteenth century saw a distinct change in the shape and function of the bullet. In 1826, Henri-Gustave Delvigne, a French infantry officer, invented a breech with abrupt shoulders on which a spherical bullet was rammed down until it caught the rifling grooves.” With a set of bullet cufflinks, you can take your best shot and make history.

History has it that on September 14, 1939, the VS-300, the world’s first practical helicopter, took flight at Stratford, Connecticut. Designed by Igor Sikorsky and built by the Vought-Sikorsky Aircraft Division of the United Aircraft Corporation, the helicopter was the first to incorporate a single main rotor and tail rotor design. Helicopters symbolize greater achievement, high flyer and success. The combination of its history and the lifestyle is what a set of its cufflinks represents.
