About six weeks ago, we were happy to report that we were expecting delivery of our stainless steel buckles, machined out of surgical steel. Good news! The buckles arrived last week and we have already shipped free samples to the first 20 subscribers who put their hands up last year. Of course, due to the overwhelming response we could not send a free buckle to all.
However, if you would like to order one, the price is $35.
The buckle is 18mm wide and comes with a slender pin – which means it’s perfect for fine, thin, leather straps like those on Omega and IWC watches. The photo above shoes the straps for our upcoming Mark 1 automatic watch (both kangaroo leather and Italian cowhide). The kangaroo leather straps are made by James B. Young in the Northern Territory. As our buckles can be shipped in a flat envelope we will throw in free delivery on buckle orders.
PS: Once again, the $35 is the for buckle only and not for the buckle and strap.
