The Bugatti Belt Buckle by Roland Iten
Roland Iten, designer of mechanical luxury accessories for men, has teamed up once again with French car makers Bugatti to create a new lavish, limited edition belt buckle.
Limited to just 44 units, each belt is crafted out of precious materials, including 18-karat rose gold, titanium, steel and smoked sapphire crystals.
The piece was made by a Geneva-based boutique run by Roland Iten who uses Swiss watch-making equipment to craft exquisite belt buckles. Unlike normal buckles that use the notches on a belt, Roland Iten-designed creations are mechanically adjustable to allow for a precise fit around the waistline.
As explained in a press release, “There are five gears in total that allow the fine-tuning calibration of the belt from 0-22 mm.
"A rolling click calibration lock complication, a vertical rotating friction controlled pin and a mechanically leveraged belt insertion clip all demonstrate the incredible mechanical savoir-faire that is hiding under the smoked sapphire crystals and Côtes de Genève decoration.”
The Calibre R22 Mark I Bugatti Edition belt buckles are each available priced at nearly $84,000.
