    Deployant, deployment clasp types and sources.

    Iím looking to buy a deployant/deployment clasp to add to an existing band.

    I noticed there is a type that tucks the tapered end of the strap on the underside and not through the keeper.

    Where can I buy one of these and is there a special name for that type.

    And since we are on the subject why not post pictures of your favorite deployant strap....

    The deployant that tickles under is usually a different type and strap with the trad tang end being longer plus no holes. If you're wanting to use this strap you'll need to go with a deployant that keeps the tail on top.

    I didn't think there was such a thing as a "deployment clasp".

    Can't help you with your question I'm afraid but can post a picture!

    I purchased this strap just yesterday to replace the plastic looking Seiko default but kept the deployant Seiko mechanism and had the shop fit this to the regular Hirsch strap - works well.

    There are deployant clasps and then there is the deployment of the military.

    Clockwork Synergy is a good place for the straps.

    I think if you buy another Rolex and the wife finds out you get “deployed” to the doghouse...

    I think what you are describing is what breitling and tag heuer uses

    I used to also think this but deployment is English and deployant is French/Swiss

    Nothing to do with a supposed decline of English.. "deployant" is the French adjective "unfolded", and to the best of my knowledge, the English verb "to deploy" can also mean "to unfold" (but I'm not a native speaker). So it's basically the same thing and both versions are commonly used.

    Anyway, regarding the OP's question: I love this type of strap! It looks beautifully clean, wears super comfortably, and once adjusted, you just slip the watch over the wrist and close it with a small push, I love it.

    You can find these clasps and the suitable straps if you e.g. search ebay for "folding clasp for Omega De Ville" or other major brand models that use this type. See e.g. here:
    https://www.ebay.de/itm/Uhrenarmband...e/254022670928
    https://www.ebay.de/itm/BAND-20mm-RI...d/332499586485

    You may have to search a little, but you can find them on ebay. Here's a picture of one of my watches with that type of aftermarket clasp and strap:

    And three different versions from Tag Heuer, Girard-Perregaux and Armand Nicolet (original clasp, aftermarket strap). GP and AN use pins with holes in the strap, Tag doesn't.
