Default Prussian Navy brass buckle and leather belt

I've tried to do a bit of research on this, but haven't been able to find one with the leather belt attached to this kind of buckle? I think it is a Prussian Navy buckle? The width of the buckle from top to bottom is 50mm... I'm hoping maybe someone can tell me a bit more about it.

Nobody knows anything about this one?? The ones I have seen usually have a parade type belt rather than a leather one... any info would be appreciated

I could not comment on exactly what the belt is, but it looks like something perhaps worn by land forces? Are there any visible markings on the leather? It certainly looks like it had extensive re-working to make it adjustable. Is there a slide on the buckle side?

I agree with Pauke. This would be a typical type belt for officers on shore (landing troops) or front duty (Flandern Korps).
