    DLC deployant clasp for diver engineer master ii gmt

    Hello all,

    First post here. I have a gold and black DLC engineer ii diver gmt and I would love to be able to match the watch case with a DLC coated deployant clasp. In a perfect world I would like a branded one from ball that is in DLC but I haven't seen one anywhere. I would settle even for a generic butterfly in DLC but can't really find much out there. I know there's several types of PVD/DLC/CVD finishes and many chemical / processes in each application that will give a wide variety of color and hardness on the vicars scale. I want something that has the same grey/black that the case has on my watch.

    Has anyone been successful in finding a deployant with a finish to match their ball DLC watches?

    Might not be a lot of choices out there. Don't think Ball makes what you are looking for.

    Maybe you might get lucky with a generic one.

    Have you tried strapcode.com for starters?

    Amazon could be another possibility, but to find one branded is going to be tough, so you might have to take what you can get.

    Good luck.

    Pretty sure Ball doesn't offer any DLC clasps, and in the aftermarket, I don't think you are going to find much that would be worth giving a rating on the vicars scale--as Nokie suggests, generic is probably your only choice, and probably best not to expect too much, in terms of quality--when I had my Night Train DLC II, I got a regular black PVD coated tang buckle and it worked and looked great. I have picts of the buckle with a more "traditional" strap on another computer, but this should give you an idea.

    Wow that looks super nice. The black pvd looks great and matches well. As a shot in the dark I went to the customer service section of Ball's US website and then to inquiry form. I was sent back an email from someone in Switzerland and they said they could send me a DLC coated buckle. If / when it comes in I'll be sure and upload a picture! I'm going to pick up either a dark grey / charcoal, brown, or black leather strap and put the DLC buckle on that.
