    Low profile deployment clasp

    Morning all

    I recently replaced the strap on a very thin battery operated watch. The strap itself is fantastic (black goat from Equus Leather) but I do fine the RHD butterfly deployment clasp is rather bulky, particularly in comparison to the likes of a JLC. The main issue is the element that has the prong substitute as clearly its designed to work with varying thicknesses of straps inc ones much thicker than mine.

    Can anyone recommend another brand of deployment clasp that is lower profile and still under $100/ £75 (20mm & ss)? I am not keen on the idea of using an Omega/ JLC etc on a no brand watch and the "buckle end" doesnt have the cut out for a pong/tongue.

    Unlike the OP in that thread I have no issues with butterfly closures but the overall thickness which mainly is driven by the element that entraps the holed part of the strap. All the products suggested for them look about the same thickness other than one but it requires the strap have the notch for a buckle pin which my strap doesnt have.

    I will reach out to the recommended sites and see if they have come across anything

    Good luck. Unfortunately most deploy clasp (basic two-fold types), all seem to be the same thickness based on previous experience.

    Thanks for the suggestion but that clasp appears to require a cut out as if for the tang of a buckle which my strap doesnt have.

    I have found a similar one which doesnt require it and its 8mm thick so a modest improvement on my current clasp but a little nervous ordering direct from China on an untested supplier/product

    Not sure if this meets your requirement of low profile, but it is a lot lower than my side release butterfly clasps. If so it came from Star Time Watch SupplyName:  P8210103.JPG
