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.

 

The Premium Buckle

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.

 

 

The Polished and Brushed Gold Buckle

 

Our standard buckle in stainless steel has been a part of our offering for nearly four years. We offer it as standard with all of our straps. We’re now delighted to offer this fabulous buckle in both Polished and Brushed Gold (plating).
Over the years we’ve been asked by more and more of our clients for gold buckles to compliment gold watch cases. So this was a long time coming, but the final result is a beautiful piece of hardware.

About us

"Molequin was formed at the beginning of 2016 and was created based on three defining principles"

1

To only use leather skins from ethical sources. All of our skins are sourced from French farmers that conform to global legislation, governing the farming and sustainability within our industry.

2

To make sure that all of our products are produced to the highest standards. Our French Atelier only uses the best quality materials and workmanship.

3

In an age dominated by throw away consumerism and fleeting fads, we strive to build a business based on touch, feel and reassurance. The ideologies that less is more and that style is enduring are lofty goals that we aspire to.

Founders

A meeting of minds, a melting pot of cultures steeped in AngloFrench ideologies and bridging the gap between generations probably best describes Michael's and Sidney's vision. From those early days when the office was the kitchen table to becoming an established brand has taken sacrifice, dedication and an almost obsessive attention to detail.

Craftmanship

An aspirational element to our offering has been an intense focus on quality and craftmanship. Our production is all based in France which is steeped in a history of producing the best leather products in the world. We've been able to draw on a pool of talent with skills that have been passed on for generations.

Provenance

We understand the importance of provenance, especially in our industry, so we've made it our mission to know with clarity every part of our supply chain. Our provenace remains and will continue to be French. From the very best skins to the very best tanneries. Ethical practices that apply to both animals and employees are a pre-requisite for doing business with Molequin.

Free Worldwide shipping with UPS

We've partnered with UPS, who have shipped our products from our warehouse in Brussels to every corner of the globe for over half a decade. In that time the number of packages that have been lost can be counted on one hand. We made a decision to introduce free global shipping with UPS as we wanted to give something back to you our customers for all the support you've given us over the years.
