Chegado ao mercado - Cinto Roland Iten R22 Mk.I-22mm “Bugatti edition”

A Roland Iten e a Bugatti Automobiles juntaram forças para criar um cinto com fecho mecânico, a lembrar um calibre de relógio.

Não é de admirar, já que o fecho mecânico é feito a 100 por cento em Genebra, com ferramentas usadas em relojoaria para fazer rodas dentadas, pinhões, pontes ou espirais...

Os cintos tradicionais têm 90, 100 110 ou 120 cm de comprimento, mas o fecho mecânico Roland Iten R22 Mk.I-22mm “Bugatti edition” é micro-adaptável a qualquer tamanho, seja ele 87.29, 99.45 ou 108.98 cm. Além disso, permite uma expansão de 22 cm, que se consegue de forma discreta, através de uma engrenagem reversível, libertada na parte de trás do fecho, uma invenção à espera de patente.

Composto de precisamente 10 peças de ouro branco, com apontamento de ouro rosa, titânio e aço, é uma série limitada a 22 exemplares em ouro branco, 22 em ouro rosa, 48 em aço e titânio e 48 em aço escurecido e titânio.
Da marca:

The patent-pending expansion mechanism uses flow-guiding wheels that are incorporated into the teeth of the gear system to provide a “click-free click” and minimal friction. There are five gears in total that allow the fine-tuning calibration of the belt from 0-22mm. 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.

Performance and calibration are at the heart of all of Roland Iten’s inventions - precision adjusting watch buckles, cufflinks which regulate the circumference of your cuff to your watch size, mechanical cases which cascade your credit cards at just the precise angle and gold shoelace tips which keep your shoelaces fixed into the perfect knot bring the ultimate in performance to the gentleman in search of perfection.

Roland Iten is a well-respected pioneer in fine mechanics and has been commissioned by the royal gun-makers James Purdey and Sons as well as master watchmakers such as François-Paul Journe, Greubel Forsey and Jaeger-LeCoultre for the creation of watch buckles that follow the same concept of contemplated calibration and fitness for purpose.

The R22 Mk.I-22mm “Bugatti edition” buckle is an object of precision engineering that opens a whole new world of surprise, delight and amusement to boys looking for the ultimate toy. “When you turn the ignition of a Bugatti, it doesn’t roar into action like so many sports cars, it turns over flawlessly, a sound that reveals the highest level of tuning and results in phenomenal car speeds of over 400 km/h,” explains Iten. A Roland Iten mechanical accessory performs to the same grade of excellence – the sound of its mechanism in motion, the feel of the materials and its handling are on par with the most sophisticated engines – something that can only be appreciated by a true gentleman connoisseur.

The Piece 00/00 in Solid White Gold is being debuted on the Bugatti Stand at the 81st Salon International de l’Auto et Accessoires Geneve, in Geneva, Switzerland from the 1st- 19th March 2011.
