    Ratchet diver clasp alternative?

    I'm looking for a 20mm ratcheting dive clasp for a watch I have incoming. I know strapcode sells one, but I was wondering if anyone knows of an alternative out there. At the end of the day I know strapcode makes a quality product, but I'm curious what else is out there.

    I know you didn't ask, but unless you intend to use that clasp for diving, I would try to find an alternative to that style. Its very big and in the case of strapcode, the finish leaves something to be desired. There are a lot of sharp edges on this one (I have this on an Oyster for SKXs). I use, but not as much as I thought I would because of the annoying edges.

    Interesting, do you mean the corners dig into your skin?

    Yes, only the clasp portion. The links of the band are fine and the finish of those is good.

    Thanks for the feedback, might think twice about getting it now.

    i've had two of them, and those unsmoothed edges are sharp, but the corners when it's slightly extended are the killer. I bought on from watch gecko and it's WAY better, though doesn't look as nice. Now I use the seiko MM ratcheting clasp and it's very comfortable, though bulky. For my seiko turtle, i'm currently looking for something else (the seko clasp isn't the right size).

    I had that exact clasp on my Strapcode Super Oyster bracelet for my SKX007 before I sold it to a friend. The micro-adjustability was awesome -- I typically wore it one click open, so I could snug up, or loosen up a click, but still had some wiggle room to use it as a diver extension. But since the overwhelming majority of my time was spent as a desk diver, its bulkiness wore on me. It's a thick clasp, for sure.

    Wearing it casually, or to the pool, or wherever was no problem. But for daily office wear, no thank you.

    Hexa makes the best ones if you want a shorter and flatter clasp like Watchgecko makes. There's a guy named Ybor1 on Ebay who I ordered a couple from last week.- Brushed and blasted on Super Engineer bands for about $75.
