BUCKLE OPTIONS

I offer five buckle options to match your watch's finish or to personalize your MN™ Strap. All my hardware is made from sea water resistant 316 stainless steel or solid marine grade bronze.
You can select the material and finish of your buckles during the order process of your MN™ Strap.

In keeping with their military heritage all my buckles are made using traditional manufacturing methods as used by the French Airforce and Marine Nationale. All my buckles are hand finished. Small microscratches may be visible with flood light due to the production process.

BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL

Works great with brushed or satin finish watch cases. Also less prone to scratches.

PATINA STAINLESS STEEL

I have a special process to patina the stainless steel. It resembles the hardware found on old battle worn parachutes.
This is a very good match for sandblasted and titanium watch cases and Mirage MN™ straps.

POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL

A very good match for polished watch cases.

BLACK DLC COATED BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL

Great for black watch cases or on a Black Ops MN™ strap. +20,- euro

SOLID BRONZE

To match your bronze watch. The bronze will patina individually based on your activities and your pH. +25,- euro

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE PATINA OF YOUR BRONZE BUCKLE


My customers often ask me what to expect from the patina of my bronze buckles. So here it goes…
My bronze buckles are made from solid CuSn8 bronze. This marine grade bronze is the same material alloy as for example Panerai watch cases. This kind of bronze will patina very easy with beautiful tones of brown and black due to a.o. the amount of zinc in the alloy. Tudor watch cases for example patina more slowly because their alloy contains aluminium. Still my bronze buckles work great with Tudor and other bronze cases as well.

When you receive your MN™ Strap it has a coating to prevent it from oxidizing during stitching and transport. This way you can experience the full patina journey of your strap.
The coating wears of easily but can also be removed with a little water or alcohol. Each patina will develop differently, depending on the pH value of your skin, your location, your activities and how you wear your watch. The above pictures will give you an impression of what you (can) expect in 4-8 weeks.
