The Finest Swiss Watchmaking Techniques Went Into This—£51k Belt Buckle?

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Most men don't pay enough attention to one of the most important parts of their wardrobe: their belt buckle. A plummeting pair of trousers can be far more than just embarrassing, so why trust a hole punched in a leather strap when Roland Iten has created a belt buckle that's been engineered to hold strong using Swiss watchmaking techniques?

The Finest Swiss Watchmaking Techniques Went Into This—Belt Buckle?

The Bugatti-branded buckle features hand-crafted gears, cogs, springs, and pinions that allow the belt buckle to be infinitely adjusted for an absolutely perfect fit. And with materials like lightweight titanium used in its construction, there's no risk of the buckle itself dragging down your trousers.

There is a catch, of course. With the Bugatti branding and all the care that's gone into this belt buckle's design, only 44 of the R22 Mark I are being created. And each one will set you back a disheartening £51,000. But who could ever prioritise a down payment on a house over the guarantee your trousers will always stay up? [Roland Iten via Autoblog]
