Just Because…Prince Charles’s Aston Martin = Cufflinks

So, I found out recently that Prince Charles of England once had an Aston Martin that he converted to run not on the peon fluid of gasoline…no, no, no, the Prince decided that he wanted his Aston Martin to run on wine. Yes…wine. Now, I realize that this gratuitous customization of wealth is probably much healthier for the environment, but something about that is just pointless to me…anyway, spare parts were left over from that conversion, so TMB Artmetal decided to take the leftover pistons and make cufflinks out of them! They retail for about $1,600 and also contain 16K gold. So here are the Princly, pricey cufflinks…Just Because.

Oh the things that money (and stupidity) can buy. They are nice though.
