Roland Iten R782 Fly Back Mechanical Belt Calibre

The R782 “Fly Back” mechanical belt buckle calibre, named for its semi-automatic deployment mechanism, allows the wearer to effortlessly “charge” the buckle to the active-wear position and with one-click,  releasing  the de-cock trigger lock,  to send it thrusting back  to the relaxed position—an expansion range of 40mm within two positions.
The principle upon which the R782 functions is 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”. 
Followers of the brand will recognise this new release as a simplified version of the R82 mechanical buckle calibre—which employs, without a doubt, the most complicated calibration mechanism ever created by ROLAND ITEN to date with over 150 engineered parts. The R782 Fly Back, incorporates 88 purpose-made components, 37 of which are principally different from each other, and comprise the unique way that this  buckle calibre functions. 
Released in a limited edition of 30 pieces in gold/titanium/steel,  and 250 pieces in aluminium/titanium/steel  with 5N red gold accents,  the R782 Fly Back is as comfortable in the Board Room as it is on the Polo field, Baseball Field, or on the Golf Course,  and is issued in three different sizes and a variety of colours and finishings.
