*Pre-Order now for delivery in November 2020 - the first 20 orders ship with a free XR749 Mini Model*
The English Electric Lightning was the last all – UK jet fighter, and the only fully British operational jet capable of Mach 2.27 (1500 Mph). XR749 was famed for its multiple achievements in intercepting an American U2 spy plane and ‘winning’ a 1984 NATO competition to intercept and then overtake Concorde.
Made from aluminium alloy reclaimed from the original tail fin, these beautifully rendered cufflinks capture the sheer power of this iconic aircraft. Entirely made and hand finished in the UK, these items come presented in a high-quality hinged box, together with a certificate of authenticity.
Fantastic piece of history
Really happy with the cuff links, very well made and superbly packaged! Bought as a gift, Wish I bought myself some now!"
English Electric Lightning Cufflinks
I was sold the moment I read I could have cufflinks in anything resembling an EE Lightning, however what I did not expect or believe was possible is the quality and detail of sculpting. From the recess of the air intake, down the flowing wings, not just swept and thin but properly shaped with aileron detail to the invisible when worn but no less perfectly executed belly tank detail these cufflinks have far surpassed what one could expect from a model this size let alone a functioning feature piece of attire."
Perfect Graduation gift
Bought as a graduation gift for a son who's final year dissertation was about restoring and maintaining English Electric Lightnings. I originally inquired as to whether any Lightning products were to be produced and was informed that it was on the way - this prevented me settling for "2nd best" in the form of a different aircraft. We waited and John gave us advance notice of their availability - not something you would get from a big company.
The cufflinks and the Miniature are both beautifully made and presented in their gift boxes.
They arrived when John said they would, very well packaged."
