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.
In true Roland Iten style, Roland conceived the Calibre R822 "Predator" calibre with wearer comfort in mind. To that end, the Predator’s ergonomic design allows the wearer to quickly change the leather strap for another to complement 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, and easily tighten or loosen the leather strap with just one hand. Moreover, security pushers ensure against accidental release.
Operating the Calibre R822 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.
The Calibre R822 "Predator" dazzles thanks to 387 VVS1+ quality baguette-cut and round-cut diamonds which total 14.15 carats and adorn the buckle body. The Roland Iten Calibre R822 "Predator" quadruple complication belt buckle is a diamond-set model in an ultra-exclusive limited edition of just 3 pieces.
