December 2nd, 2014

 

The seriously playful Roland Iten Calibre R822 "Predator" mechanical belt buckle features four impressive complications. The “Predator” is designed, manufactured and assembled to ensure that all mechanisms are self-cleaning with no lubrication required. The white gold body with red gold accents is fully-diamond-set with 387 diamonds totalling 14.15 carats, while the platform is made from high-tech titanium.

Quadruple complication

The fully diamond set "Predator" features four complications for:

  • Quick and simple changes of the leather strap.
  • Effortless engagement of the buckle with the leather strap.
  • One-handed operation of the buckle to tighten the leather strap.
  • One-handed operation of the buckle to loosen the leather strap.

Ergonomic design

In true Roland Iten style, Roland conceived the Calibre R822 "Predator" with wearer comfort in mind. To that end, the Predator’s ergonomic design allows the wearer to:

  • Quickly and easily change the leather strap for another to complement their attire.
  • Insert the end of the leather strap in the buckle so that the double ardillion tang engages effortlessly with the holes in the leather strap.
  • Easily tighten or loosen the leather strap with just one hand. Security pushers ensure against accidental release.


Tactile pleasure

Operating the Calibre R822 buckle is a veritable tactile pleasure. The “Predator” offers a simple one-handed adjustment for two positions, e.g. driving/sitting (looser) or walking/sport (tighter). It is equipped with 16 (two rows of eight) self-cleaning track wheels that guide the ardillion slide precisely and securely, while a sprung ball bearing tensioner and dampener ensure smooth operation.

A patented, in-line double ardillion enables the pins to have a smaller diameter than the holes in the strap. The equal weight distribution offers resistance-free operation, minimizes wear, and maximizes security.
