    Deployment clasps--- recommendations

    Looking to buy some deployments to ease the wear on my leather straps.

    Any companies recommended or links to them?

    I'd say I'm not looking for the cheapest or the best of the best....just good value for money.

    TIA

    Formex make an excellent range of lightweight carbon-reinforced deployants that are on-the-fly adjustable.

    Was very happy with the ones I had - but, having tried many conventional variants, I also discovered I just don't get-on with deployants in general.

    By way of general recommendation, centred (butterfly) deployants are often more comfortable than single sided ones, as they tend to centre the watch better. They will also afford greater opening.

    The respective lengths of the strap has most effect on how the watch centres. I struggle to find deployant straps with the 6 side short enough and thatís why I donít use them.

    I prefer to buy traditional pin buckle straps and change them more often.

    I have only had the Omega version, which has been real good. I had a Sinn butterfly and it never worked fo me as it dug into my wrist.

    COuld someone post a review, especially against omega version?

    Ooh thanks for that. I hate pairing a good watch with a good strap and then putting some Chinese POS deployant on it. These look to be just the job.

    I hear both the NIVREL (Swiss) and Fluco (German) are also good but have no first-hand experience of either. That might change though!

    Always on the lookout for good, non-Chinese stuff so if you have any other recommendations let me know.

    I've always been a fan of Heuer style clasps, used these a couple of times:

    Turns out the Fluco "FaltschlieŖe" (fold buckle?) aren't made in Germany.

    Email from them:

    "The deployment clap is not made in Germany, it is made in China. All our normal buckles are made in Germany."

    But then "deployment clap" is something you get in the army, right?
