Would some explain deployment clasps please
I have some deployment clasps, but I'm still not clear about the different types. Specifically, are deployment claps for a steel bracelet different to those for leather? And, can a deployment clasp just replace a buckle on a leather strap or is a different strap needed?
thanks for explaining!

There are many different designs of deployant, some designed for bracelets and others for straps.
Generally they are not interchangeable*. Leather straps are usually designed for either pin buckle or deployant not both but it may be possible to make one fit the other.
*Rubber B make rubber straps fir Rolex watches which use the deployant clasp from the bracelet. Others may do the same.

I can answer part of your question. I've swapped one of my deployant clasps onto several different leather straps. They were all standard straps - just take the buckle off using a strap changing tool (or screwdriver etc. as appropriate) and replace with the deployant.

And, for the second, was this a specific type of deployment clasp?

Just in case you missed it from the others guys posts the word is 'deployant', not deployment.

I don't think you are missing anything. Deployment seems to have become a common anglicisation of déployant. Grammatically slightly different, both with the same root. I wouldn't worry about it - if you start down that slippery slope the next step is 'rehaut'.
