The Predator Belt Buckle: Seriously Playful, Prohibitively Expensive

If you are wondering how this amazing belt buckle got its  name and can't seem to keep images of intruders lurking in dark alleys out of your mind's eye, the answer is simple. The moniker derives from the fact that  this belt buckle eats up (and spits out) any other belt buckle out there. Period.

How does this incredible belt buckle work?

The Roland Iten Calibre R822 "Predator" belt buckle will easily fit any leather belt. It can be worn casually with jeans or with formal attire. It is conveniently constructed for one-handed operation, which means when holiday feastng has caused your stomach to expand from too much of any good thing, you can adjust the buckle while sitting at the table without anyone even noticing. You can also make similar adjustments while driving, albeit one hand on the wheel does present obvious perils.

Special features of  the "Predator" belt buckle

This incredible mechanical belt buckle offers four remarkable operations: quick change of the strap; one-handed operation of the buckle to tighten, and as mentioned above, to loosen the leather strap.

The "Predator" is exclusively designed, manufactured and assembled with the guaranteee that all mechanisms require no lubrication of any kind. This is accomplished via its 16 self-cleaning tracks in two rows of eight that accurately propel the sliding bar (tang slide).

This belt buckle represents amazing, one-of-a-kind artistry, but one question still lingers in the very expensive air. Where does one keep such a prize?   The closet hardly seems secure. Does one rent a vault for this belt buckle?

Oh well, one can dream.  Can't one ?
