CUSTOM buckle by Intel Xe HPC Ponte Vecchio
Appears constructed with actual XEON HPC parts
Truly an ultra-rare collector's piece.
Not junk, not a toy!
Unisex, late teens & adults...
HUGE HEAVY serious belt buckle, for
Silicon Valley tech pros
Computer Tech collectors
Excellent quality & construction
Looks to be crafted of genuine early Intel Xeon HPC Ponte Vecchio parts
The Xe pieces are set in a dull-finish lead-like metal frame, pin style buckle
The frame flips, or pivots, inside of another frame
Frame is fitted with hidden magnets to keep the selected side in place
Made for a 1.5 inch sturdy belt.
Belt shown is included, though you may opt out of belt purchase
If you use your belt, it will need to be wrap-around snap/screw style with single pin hole
HUGE Greatest measurement of the rectangular buckle shown in photos - about 4" wide x 3.25" high, 3/8" thick
HEAVY! Buckle weighs 7.3 ounces
This is a proper men's buckle
The belt is smooth black full grain genuine leather marked size 34", not layered, split or bonded leather. No end-keeper.
Note actually a women's belt as the maker's marks inside will be upside down when snapped to buckle....it won't matter, just want to mention.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT BELT!
EMAIL ME BEFORE PURCHASE!
I will take $12 off price & amend ad to say no belt included.
NOTE! Keep in mind you will need a sturdy belt to support this buckle, best would be a thick full-grain single-piece leather
IMO NOT suede, pieced leather, bonded/layered or faux leather
Pre-owned, worn & stored unprotected in dresser.
Hidden pivot mechanism works fine
Some white marks around pieces in frame, only obvious is shown in photo & won't show when worn.
Some scuffs, marks, dings & discoloration to buckle & belt
Leather is excellent, fresh treat with Cadillac Select, no shape distortion, just typical scuffs, scratches & dings
All photos except last photo depict the buckle & belt you will receive.
MAIN photo is NOT 2 BELTS & 2 BUCKLES ~ it is a collage photo showing the single belt and both sides of the single buckle
Photos taken in various lighting to show the elements of texture, colors, layers & shine/sparkle
All Xeon metal is matte, slightly gold-hued silver, Xe logo is etched in copper color
The GPU shows as green or gold, depending on the angle of view, with raised silvery parts
Last photo is collage of public images for authenticity:
shows the GPU & early logo at Intel Innovation 2022 and Intel Vision 2022....both sides of buckle correctly match event images
