What's in a buckle?

It may seem that a buckle is simply a way of fastening a strap to your wrist and you wouldn't be wrong. However, the time, money and man hours spent on buckle design and development can prove to be worth all the effort. For a buckle can completely change how a strap and watch feels on your wrist. After numerous false starts, we're proud to launch our new buckle today.

It's a precision buckle, machined from 316L surgical grade stainless steel.  While not considered a precious metal, it is much more durable than silver or platinum.  This durability is due to a chromium coating that is chemically bonded to the steel.  The invisible coating protects the steel underneath from oxidation (tarnishing and rusting).  It also protects against scratching by taking the inital impact of a scratch and then resealing itself. This process, called passivation, is the spontaneous formation of a hard non-reactive surface film that prohibits further corrosion. The quality and finishing of the buckle is breathtaking and compliments our range of straps perfectly.
