Whether it's buying the perfect bottle of wine for that hopelessly romantic candlelit dinner, adding a barely-there dab of perfume for a bit of extra allure, or simply remembering your special someone’s favorite kind of cupcake ... the sweetest things in life, well, they’re really all in the details. Which is why we are seriously swooning over these amazing Watch Works cufflinks from Uncommon Goods. They're just the perfect addition to a tux or a tailored shirt, and they can make the dullest of ensembles sing like a melodious songbird. Each lovely little link is crafted from timepieces that have already ticked ... uh, kicked the bucket, but are made to look all shiny and new. And because they're entirely handmade, no two will look exactly alike. It’s looks like time, well, it’s totally on your side.
