Tokens & Icons was founded in 1991, when Ward Wallau, recently out of hotel school, decided to utilise his entrepreneurial know-how and transform New York City Transit Authority’s “Y-Cut” subway tokens into cufflinks.
Ward believed the tokens were a logical and creative way to reincorporate an aspect of the city’s rich history into the everyday life of New Yorkers. So of course, these cufflinks became the first collection by Tokens & Icons. Today, Tokens & Icons’ entire range is hand-crafted from, or incorporate, authentic artefacts, including Major League Baseball bats National Hockey League pucks and more.
True to the spirit of Tokens & Icons, comes these Watch Movement Cufflinks. Crafted from authentic watch movements from the early to mid-20th Century, these cufflinks are set in sterling silver with swivel findings. Featuring intricate gears, levers and jewels, these Watch Movement Cufflinks reveal the secrets of synchronised precision.
