We took to one of London’s finest classic car garages to meet some of this season’s top performers in the style stakes.

Classic cars like the 1973 Ferrari 246 GT Dino are enough to get your heart racing as fast as its 2418cc engine, with both beauty and power in abundance. Contemporary jewellery brand The Mechanists has created a series of motor-sports inspired bracelets that channels the jaw-dropping effect of cars like this, with handcrafted miniature 14k gold steering wheels and silk cords. Light enough not to weigh you down on the race track and eye-catching enough to make a tasteful statement, they make the perfect gift for petrolheads. Alongside some of our cosiest winter outerwear, we road-tested the bracelets at Duke of London’s where their style and spirit looked right at home.
