Triple Aught Design is excited to introduce our first collaboration with RIS Machining. A young company producing products to an incredibly high level of fit and finish, RIS saw a gap in the market for watch buckles with the end user choosing between stock hardware or incredibly high end exoctics.
RIS buckles are created from a solid piece of 9.6mm thick TIMET 6Al-4V Titanium with 300 series stainless crossbars and screws. They are made in the USA from USA produced raw materials. Double Allen head screws are utilized on each side of the buckle with 5mm of thread engagement into each side of the 2.0mm large crossbars. The design of the buckle allows it to lay flat against the strap and not protrude from the wrist. Most of the original material is machined away to create a comfortable and lightweight connection. Very fine and detailed step over machining produces subtlety at a glance that gives way to intricacy upon closer inspection.
Unique to the TAD Edition is our signature laser etched topo pattern. Available in both 22 and 24mm sizes, these buckles will be at home on your G-Shock to your Panerai.
RIS came from the prototype engineering and production fields with a passion for precision work. Combining cutting edge machining and the hands-on finish work usually reserved for handmade items. Limiting the size of the run allows RIS to maintain the high attention to detail bringing custom level fit and finish to a small batch production.
