Just wanted to let you know my husband absolutely loved the cufflinks and has just finished the book which he has not stopped thanking us for, plus giving us a history lesson on its contents. A very big thank you!

Happy New Year!! I gave the Spitfire case to Bernard: He LOVES it!!

Almine. Belgium. Spitfire Rib 16 Case

I have just opened my birthday present and was just so taken aback at the beauty and craftsmanship of the bronze cufflinks and the very sophisticated and gorgeous presentation box. Then...I read all the details of how you make them and that they are actually from Al Deere’s Merlin engine from his Spitfire....and finally his book... I have an assortment of aviation cufflinks, but these limited edition extremely rare cufflinks are just on a totally different level. You are truly an amazing craftsman and a talented marketer as well. I am going to be the envy of my aviation friends and I have no doubt whatsoever that you will be getting more commissions from my friends! Thank you so much....I am in awe and admiration.

Chris. UK. X4276 KL-B Spirit of 1940 Cufflinks

Bill. UK. Ferrari 250GTO Wallet

The cufflinks arrived this afternoon. Oh wow - they are exquisite!!! You are such a craftsman. I love the passion and historical respect that has gone into them - they are so much more than simply a piece of jewellery. Thank you so much - they are soooooo special to me. When I do my Spitfire conversion I will drop into visit your store and say ‘Hi’. Have a very Merry Christmas - you have made mine!

Grant. Australia. Spitfire P7350 Spirit of 1940 Cufflinks

I have finally had the chance to look at the Spitfire cufflinks. OMG, they are truly beautiful. I have never seen such superb craftsmanship and attention to detail before. I am so amazed at how stunning they look and cannot wait for him to see them. You have surpassed all my expectations, when viewing on line it can be tricky to establish what they would be like for real. Thank you so much for the book too. A real personal touch and you are so kind. I am speechless. I work with the general public and I find I am quite particular on the service I receive, and this is definitely one I will never forget.

Kristin. UK. 4472 Firebox Door Cufflinks

Sorry, I should have sent an email to say that the ring had arrived safely and I’m really, really pleased with it – many thanks! The wedding is coming up fast – a week on Saturday – and we’ve decided to have a small display at the wedding venue showing how the ring was made, using the photographs that you emailed me, I’m sure many people will be interested to see it.

Ben. UK. Concorde wedding ring

Just to let you know that the little Spitfires have landed, and they are fantastic! For the first time in a long time - maybe for the first time ever, I'm looking forward to the next time I have to wear a suit!

Simon. UK. 4472 Firebox Door Cufflinks

“Geoff was bowled over by the clock and the cuff links, but especially the clock. We have watched the DVD (several times), and also shared it with friends. It was fascinating to watch. The letter you sent with the clock is being framed so it can also be displayed. We are both like little kids with new toys, we are so excited! Geoff and I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to share this wonderful piece of history with you. Everyone who has seen the Piston clock is fascinated by it and want to know the story behind it. Thank you so much for creating this work of art and for allowing us to share it.”

Gail. USA. Hurricane Piston Clock

“Hi Christopher. The clock arrived and it's even more beautiful than I imagined. Really a fantastic piece of history! Thank you very much indeed for this and for your kindness. The cufflinks also are very nice and I will wear them proudly.”

Hi Chris. Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. Tony absolutely loves the cufflinks. He was very intrigued by the story behind them and was quick to try them on a shirt! He thinks he's heard of your company before. In any event, I passed on the extra information you sent along, as well as the photos. Many thanks again for all your help, I'm sure I'll be back in touch at some point!”

Robin. Bermuda. Aston Martin DB6 Cufflinks

“Brilliant! It arrived safely and I'm delighted with it. Not sure I can wait for 9 November to know what he thinks and if it fits! He’s out at the mo but I might give it to him later - fingers crossed it fits! It's stunning - thank you so much!”

Clare. UK. Spitfire P7350 Wedding Ring

“Hooray! It fits perfectly. He is delighted with it and guessed immediately that it was your handy work. It looks great and he is already wearing it with pride and keeps flashing it under my nose.

“Well, the Supermarine cufflinks have arrived ... I have to say that even with my high expectations being as unmanageable as they were in this case, when actually present and in hand, the quality of the cufflinks exceeds my highest hopes ... simply exquisite! The richness of their colour, their size and weight, the precision of the detailing, and more, is truly exceptional work. Although I really should have known that all this would be so, given the professionalism of your site and business acumen, nonetheless I'm extremely impressed.”

I will wear them with pride behind the wheel as well!”

Craig. Singapore. D-type Spinners

“The cufflinks arrived yesterday and they are magnificent. The photos you sent of you melting the bronze in the crucible and the resultant “tree” are terrific. They give me an idea of the work involved to gain the wonderful end product. Thank you for your prompt delivery and service, they will get a run tonight, as we are out for dinner this evening!”

John. Australia. Spitfire X4276 KL-B Supermarine Pedals

You have had a fair bit of correspondence with my wife Elizabeth and I just wanted to say that they are a wonderful gift which will be treasured in our family. It is a great way for someone like myself to have a very tangible piece of history. I will follow your website and I wish you and your business all the best.”

Malcolm. New Zealand. Spitfire X4276 KL-B Supermarine Pedals

“He loves them!!!!!”

Jill. USA. Aston Martin Zagato Cufflinks

“The Hurricane Spinners and Spitfire rudder pedals arrived yesterday after a curious conversation with U.S. Customs about the relative bronze, gold and aluminum content of each. It is remarkable to me to have such a piece of history in the form of such beautiful and unique cufflinks. As the memory of those heroic times fades to those of us who only know about them at second hand, I am grateful to have such a spectacular reminder and memento. As with my other TMB cufflinks, the workmanship is spectacular, and, as a combination of art and history, they are truly unique. Thank you for making them available.”

“They finally arrived yesterday. I’ll just say this: it was worth the wait! They’re beautiful and it is thrilling to know they are a little piece of a Spitfire - and a special one too.”

Thiago. Brazil. Spitfire Rudder Pedal Cufflinks

“They are just BEEEUUUTIFUL!!! It took all my self control not to give the cufflinks to Malcolm over the weekend!!! They are just soooo special and with the historic DNA link - I felt very emotional when I opened up the little boxes!!! (the boxes are just beautiful too!!!). I truly feel we are now part of a very special club.”

Lizzy. New Zealand (1). Spitfire Rudder Pedal Cufflinks

“I have to say I am quite overwhelmed with how moved Malcolm was when he opened 'our' SpitRuds this morning. He is not a 'gushy' sort like me(!) but as I thought and hoped he would, he is totally enchanted with every aspect of the cufflinks and the little pin... (I let him open that too and said he could wear it on special occasions!). In fact with me having the pin and him the links - it's like our own very special little micro club - a very exclusive “who's who” and only for those in the know!!! Thank you Chris, for turning your dreams into a reality for us to share. "Creating Passion For Provenance" is a truly worthy endeavour and I can assure you we feel proud to be entrusted as guardians of your creations.”

Lizzy. New Zealand (2). Spitfire Rudder Pedal Cufflinks

“The Concorde cufflinks arrived safely this morning, thank you. I'm SO pleased with them. Although you had explained to me about them, the history that you included shows just how special they really are. How I will treasure them.”

Guy. UK. Concorde on Gold Cufflinks

“The ON2 Radiators have arrived and exceed my every expectation. As you know, they are the 3rd pair of TMB cufflinks I have purchased, and every pair gives me great satisfaction every time I wear them.”

Charles. USA. Old No 2 Radiator Cufflinks

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks for the wonderful Ferrari 250 GTO spinner cufflinks. My wife gave them to me last night over dinner and they were a talking point for the rest of the evening with all the male guests. They are even more beautiful than I can remember from when I first saw them at Goodwood last year. I also think the presentation case is a lovely item in which to keep them in. Thanks for making my day!”

Philip. UK. GTO Spinner Cufflinks

“I wanted to thank you and Christopher Bennett at TMB for all of your hard work to get the Ferrari 250 GTO cufflinks to me. My husband loved the unique gift (a 10th anniversary present). Thanks also to Christopher for the lapel pin as a complimentary gift as an apology for the delay - a very nice touch.”

Cynthia. Canada. GTO Spinner Cufflinks

“I haven’t written giving feedback before now because they were a present to me from me (via the wife) for my Birthday and I managed to control the urge to wear them until last week. It is nice to have a real weight to cufflinks; coming from famous old cars/planes/trains etc one associates such with a certain weight and solidity that may be lacking today. In this instance the bronze really has this effect and I like them immensely. I also like the arm in silver and I note that the arm is (I think) slightly longer than the T35 links and certainly the Spinner links that I have already. Interesting that the several people who have commented already thought they were gold! The average Joe wouldn’t know any differently. These will get the most use from now on, I think they are superb.”

Mark. UK. Supermarine Rudder Pedal Cufflinks

“Apologies for my late reply! - I just wanted to let you know that the cufflinks are very much liked. The happy person owning a Bentley convertible, it's the season now to drive and wear the matching cufflinks!”

Ursula. Switzerland. Old No 2 Radiator Cufflinks

“My husband still loves his Jaguar D cufflinks and he will fall off his chair when he gets the Hurricanes. He will also be the envy of all his colleagues as he works in the defence industry and they will be a massive talking point (maybe even to bring more business your way!).”

Julie. UK. Hurricane Spinner Cufflinks

“Beautiful gift and I'm sure my friend will be thrilled”

Randolph, Canada. Bentley Old Number 2 Radiator Cufflinks

Adele. UK. Flying Scotsman Cabside Cufflinks

“Received the D-Type cufflinks from my wife and son for Christmas (they arrived just one day before Christmas, so my wife did not have her anticipated heart attack, thank God), and must write to tell you how beautiful they are. I am truly amazed and blown away…Thanks again for your craftsmanship and creativity, I feel as if I now own something which is truly unique and part of British, and motorcar, history.”

Ben. USA. D-Type Spinner Cufflinks

“The cufflinks have arrived safely at my office. When they came I was locked in a marathon meeting and they were a great catalyst in changing my mood when I opened them. I now understand exactly what you meant in your description... they are not in the least retiring and have real presence. I have yet to wear them, but have them in my desk and keep taking them out to show people. My son (13) has already enquired at what point they will pass to him and his sister (17) wants to know why they pass to the younger male! Anyway thank you very much - you have one very satisfied customer - although I cannot imagine anyone not being impressed by them (even without the provenance).”

Steve. UK. Hurricane Spinner Cufflinks

“Cufflinks arrived this a.m, thank you so much for the effort, they are quite cool, I'm sure my partner will love them.”

Gordon. Australia. Flying Scotsman Cabside Cufflinks
