Bonia Silver Tourbillon Cuff Links Ref: PBNG0015 - Utulising a mechanical watch movement balance wheel module to celebrate the beauty of horology, A Review (plus Video)

Back in June 2016, I acquired this set of cuff links from a shop in Mid Valley. What caught my eyes was the horological theme designed directly into the fashion accessory. Made by Bonia, a fashion house from Malaysia, it utulises a mechanical watch movement balance wheel module to celebrate the beauty of horology.




Officially, it is called the "Silver Tourbillon Cuff Links" even though it is obvious not a tourbillon watch module. I guess the designers in Bonia are not watch collectors but plainly just wanted to cash-in on the demand by watch enthusiasts. A mistake as a true watch hobbyist can quickly spot the glaring mistake. On their website, the cuff links are listed at RM398 per pair.  

Not made out of any exotic materials apart from 316L stainless steel and mineral glass, it does not do anything put spins back and forth on its axis. The module used is China PF1 Mechanical Movement

Due to its thickness, it looks obvious on cuffs and the uniqueness makes it a good conversation piece.
