    Does anyone make a better deployant ...

    System than Tag Heuer? I have owned this watch for roughly nine years and the strap shows very little abuse. TheTag system ensures a secure and perfect fit without the need for holes in the strap. Comparing it to the others (Omega, Ulysse Nardin, Breitling) the Tag still gets the nod.

    Ebel deployants are the best I've come across to date.

    I love that the TAGHeuer deployant is a friction one and not dependent on holes in the strap and it means you can get it to fit exactly how you want.
    The only thing I don't like about it is that it is a chunky little fellow and it could do with some slimming down.
    If you want to be critical, I suppose you can say that because it is a friction based system that makes a strong bend in the strap, you can't easily change that initial setting.

    They've changed the design of them somewhat since I got my first one.



    this is the original version on the 1887 watches.
    The buttons push those two rather elegant arms that act on springs to create the force required to keep it closed; it is the arms that do the locking.






    this is a newer design where those two arms have been replaced by a single static piece and the buttons actuate a more normal/traditional spring actuated catch-posts.
    The newer one is more study/robust and less likely to slip but that early design is a beautiful bit of engineering.


    Hope that makes sense.
    I probably should make annotated versions of those images....


    Edit:
    as I said I would.
    Hopefully it makes more sense now.

    I absolutely love the deployant clasp on my Monaco.

    The Ebel Deployment is virtually the same. No holes required, infinitely adjustable and extremely comfortable. Maybe the most comfortable band on any of my watches. And I'm not usually fond of deployments.........

    Many companies have similar no hole deployants where the excess strap fits inside rather than outside. Its certainly not special to tag. Nice though im sure.

    Breitling uses a similar system. I love mine.
