It was one of the type that is made up of strands of wire bonded to the chrome hoop for the upper portion. The wire had fatigued over the years through flexing back and forth a little each time some-one had latched on to it until it failed.
The replacement I got from Highgate is a solid bar which had to be "persuaded" to fit but looks a much better bet longterm and being totally rigid is easier to fasten the belt buckle onto.
Take care now!
