This month, Haute Time will feature 24 gift ideas leading up to this year’s winter holidays. Inspired by the watchmaking industry, these gifts will be dedicated to collectors of all things hand-crafted. Join us every morning on Haute Time to discover a new idea for that special someone this winter.
You can never have too many mechanical toys…but you can’t wear them all at once. Well, thanks to Roland Iten, collectors can now wear up to three calibers at all times. Two watches, and one splendid belt caliber composed of 150 engineered parts.
The innovative designer brand, famed for its exquisitely crafted mechanical accessories, has unveiled the R782 Fly Back, a super-light alternative to ultra popular R82 mechanical buckle calibre.
Named for its semi-automatic deployment mechanism, the belt functions following the properties tension. With one smooth movement, the charging lever transports the fixed ardillon vertically “over the axis” from the relaxed position to the active wear position.
The buckle calibre can be secured in this position by activating the trigger lock . Once released, however, all that is needed is a simple nudge to kick the charging lever back to a comfortable relaxed position. The rapid speed at which this action is performed has inspired its name “fly back”.
It’s stylish, fun, and incredibly practical. And despite its gold accents, it won’t weight you down. It’s currently the lightest Roland Iten belt on the market.
Released in a limited edition of 250 pieces, the R782 Fly Back is available in aluminium/titanium/steel.
