    Any Isofrane compatible (3rd party) DLC/PVD buckles available? any watch pics of black IN buckle?

    I was looking for the Isofrane IN Buckle in PVD Black, but they're very rare.
    The RS ones look a bit shiny and almost gun metal (correct me if I'm wrong) and are pretty pricey.

    I was wondering, does anyone know of any 3rd party makers of Isofrane compatible buckles?
    In PVD/DLC?

    I know of the bronze ones, but are there any other compatible makes?

    And finally, any pictures of watches with the IN style Black Isofrane buckle fitted to the strap?

    The issue you will find is the tang, the Isofrane one is 8mm in width, very large, and not common, whereas we have an ARD PVD buckle and whilst it will fit the Isofrane strap the tang is only 4mm, there maybe a little sideways movement that is not an issue but visually it may not look right.

    Thanks man, you're quite right - the Tang!
    Shame that, as it's a very very nice buckle!


    I was wondering, is the Isofrane RS buckle Shiny and the IN more of a darker matt?

    The Isofrane steel buckles are a matt finish and both very similar, the black one is shiny.

    It's OEM from isofrane. I bought the strap with the buckle already on it. Got it from here in the FS section a couple years ago. Does isofrane not offer these anymore ?

    I checked their website and it appears that they are available and can be ordered.

    Here's the link

    http://www.isofrane.com/buckle_detail.htm#


    But then when you click the order button it takes you to aquadive's website and the option is not available to buy. Why don't you send an email to Ben and ask?
