My stepdaughter is getting married later this year so I have decided to make my own cufflinks using watch movements , I have these two that I can use

Watch movement cufflinks  Img_2103

This is just a test project for now as I may need to find smaller movements these are 25mm dia and may be a little on the big side  , but my question is what glue would you suggest I use to glue them to the blank cufflink ? Do you think superglue would do it ??
I will file the pinion down ( think that is the right name , I mean the bit the watch hands fit to ) so that the face is flush with the cufflink blank.

Any suggestions or advice on this project will be greatly appreciated .

i think you may find that solder is the way to go with them and use blank cufflink backs like these

all in my opinion of course Very Happy

Superglue AND solder , by doing it this way there should be no way they will fall apart

I like a challenge lol!

I am watching a few joblots of old movements on ebay as they look smaller than the movements I have and will be more suitable .
