In Response To: Re: Buckles buckles buckles... ()

Hello Abel,

He told me that "buckel have been produced for the army air of some countries and the specifications required a matte appearance"

I asked him to come here and explain ....

Thank you,

: Hello Eric,

: Well, when I see this buckle...I'm 1000% sure it's a fake...really
: bad!!

: When I take a close look to the surface I'm almost also pretty sure
: the material is silver.

: There's no doubt Heuer made these buckles in 14mm...but the
: original are much nicer then this bad fake...

: A few years back there were quite a lot of these "silver"
: Heuer buckles around, especially the 16mm variant. As far as I
: know these mostly came from Italy at that time...

: Cordialement,
: Abel.
