As the world becomes more digital and high tech, the simplicity of a working gear is a fascinating and unusual thing to see. Films use cogs and gears to create a mood or a concept. Steampunk imagery gives us the feeling of an alternate reality—the antithesis of the world of digital touch screens.

While not alone in his love of working gears, Robert Tateossian has created a line of truly unique cufflinks that recall a simpler time of true craftsmanship. This collection is an evolution of the idea of motion and movement that are Tateossian’s signature.
