Dear city dweller,
These extraordinary times affect our personal and professional lives and we hope you and your loved ones are in good health and spirit.
More than ever we realize health - both physically and mentally - is our first priority.
How did your life change? A lot of fellow city dwellers are now working from home, alone or together with their partner and/or their children. Empty streets create crowded homes. A new routine has to be worked out. From social distancing outside to closeness at home. The city is silent. Fewer planes, trains and cars. More room for reflection on our life as it is now and beyond these challenging times.
Early June 2019 Mr. Jan Peter Balkenende – former Prime Minister of the Netherlands – received a set of the Rotterdam City Cufflinks.
Mr. Balkenende, who is a Rotterdam aficionado, was impressed by the level of detail of this distinctive design. “I have hundreds of cufflinks, and this design really stands out to the rest”, so he said. In a relaxed encounter between Mr. Balkenende and designer Seroj de Graaf the love for both design as well as automotive issues was shared. A cufflink moment par excellence.
Governor Theo Bovens and Seroj de Graaf
On 8 May 2019 Mr. Theo Bovens, the Governor (King’s Commissioner) of the Province of Limburg was presented set No. 1 of the Maastricht City Cufflinks at the prestigious Amstel hotel in Amsterdam. This took place at the renowned National Asparagus Party, an event celebrating the business and cultural ties between Limburg and nation’s capital Amsterdam.
The Governor of Limburg, based in Limburg’s capital Maastricht, loved our Maastricht design and accepted the first set on behalf of the Province. On his suggestion this unique set will be worn by him during his term of office and subsequently handed down to future successors. Yet again linking people and creating new cufflink moments.
Mr. Allard Castelein and Seroj de Graaf
On May 1 2019 Mr. Allard Castelein, the President and CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, was presented set No. 1 of the Rotterdam City Cufflinks by designer Seroj de Graaf.
Mr. Castelein - a passionate cufflink wearer - appreciated the distinctive design, highlighting the iconic architecture of this prominent port city. Set No. 1 truly found its home at the No 1. Port of Europe. Yet another cufflink moment, connecting people being proud of their city.
Life is all about adventure and new experiences. A collection of moments gathered during the journey we all know. Including nice surprises.
In spring of 2019 the international thriller AMS Secrets will be released first in Europe and later in both North America, Asia, Australia and rest of the world. Both London and Amsterdam play a leading role in this movie. The impressive cast of this movie includes former Bond villain Jeroen Krabbé, Nigel Barber -also cast member of Bond movie Spectre - , film- and television icon Derek Jacobi and up and coming actors like Mike Beckingham and Dougie Poynter. The latter enjoyed several UK number 1 albums as member of the pop rock band McFly.
In his role in AMS Secrets Dougie Poynter encounters thrilling experiences. We are proud to say that Dougie wears our acclaimed City Cufflinks, fitting perfectly the cities where the action is taking place. For our distinctive objects the first screen-time in a movie. Yet again a cutting edge cufflink moment.
