RICH YUNG REPORT: The $10K Dunhill Mechanical Alligator Belt

London men's luxury goods firm Dunhill is coming out with the ultimate alligator belt for the holidays, featuring a high-tech gold, steel and diamond buckle.

The Mechanical Belt is designed for ultra-precise adjustments of exactly 35mm - the "two thumb" measurement a tailor will traditionally build into a custom made suit for added comfort.

Believe it or not the five-axel buckle contains a patented system of over 108 movable, mechanical parts that include roller bearings, plates and levers. And you can operate them only with one hand.

Hand finished by skilled artisans, the belt has stainless steel and 18 carat rose gold as the main components ornamented with two diamonds. The belt will be available only at select stores in London, New York, Shanghai and Tokyo, with only a handful of pieces to be sold at each one.

Only 25 pieces will be offered for sale worldwide, with each costing $10,600. Source : Luxist
