The R81 spring-loaded 8-position suspension belt functions via a trigger mechanism which delivers 8 degrees/25mm of calibration along a ratchet barrel construction. The materials used in the R81 – solid gold and titanium, have been chosen to guarantee impeccable performance of the trigger mechanism and to provide the touch, feel and uniquely dense sound of gold.

After all, when you have eight positions to choose from, you never have your hand far from the trigger. That’s why the code name for this product is Goldfinger.
