In 1541, the religious reformer John Calvin banned jewelry in Geneva. Swiss jewelers adapted by becoming watchmakers. Watches were not considered jewelry under this reform because they were practical instruments. Thus, out of oppression, sprang a thriving Swiss watchmaking industry.

That's why we love Peter Lever's line of cufflinks, tie bars, and necklaces, composed of beautiful repurposed mechanical watch movements. We see irony here. As watches once evolved from jewelry, Peter turns watches back into jewelry.

Show your appreciation for beauty and mechanics with Peter Lever's "Off the Cuff" jewelry.
