Roland Iten For Bugatti Belt Buckle
The belt buckle is hard to explain if you haven't had experience with Roland Iten. I have a little video and some hands-on information with a similar Roland Iten belt here. Basically the buckles are designed to preserve the life of the belt, to offer smooth operation, and micro-flexibility in size and adjustment. The Bugatti edition belt buckle is based on the Roland Iten Mk.I-22mm. It offers precise micro-adjustments for the perfect fit and does so in the neatest of manners. This belt will fit your exact waist - and adjust to when that size changes....
Done in precious materials, the belt buckle itself is made up of 100 parts in 18 white gold with 18k rose gold accents, along with titanium and steel. There are four different versions of the Mk.1-22mm for Bugatti and each are limited editions. The buckle operation is incredibly polished - items like this would be hard if not impossible to fake. To some people an object like this might seem silly, but when you try one and use it, going back to "standard" belt buckles is tough. Roland Iten will offer 22 pieces in 18 white gold, 22 pieces in 18k rose gold, 48 pieces in steel and titanium, and another 48 pieces in black colored steel and titanium. These editions will slowly be released from now until 2014. Not sure about price, but most of Roland Iten's belts are $25,000 and over. UPDATE: Price is about $55,000 for the first set.
