    Deployment Clasp Question

    How many of you guys like the deployment clasp?I have a Marine Original on order and never had that type clasp on a leather strap.Is it more comfortable than a regular strap with a buckle?Thanks,Mark

    Re: Deployment Clasp Question

    First, congrat on your new purchase...love that watch...thinking of ordering myself. I have a Stowa Antea on original black leather and deployment...must say it looks classier and enhance the watch IMO. Comfort wise i will say the standard buckle is more comfortable, as it fits flush to your wrist, where as the deployment presses more on wrist ( thus a slight discomfort for long wearing) and bulges out a little. It does not bother me at all, but might for others.

    Enjoy your watch.
    Cheers

    Re: Deployment Clasp Question

    I have mine on a deployent clasp, it's not the Stowa one but it is similar. I like it this way because the strap will last longer as it is not bent up each time you put the watch on or take it off like a normal belt-buckle type closure.

    Also, with standard style buckles people can steal your watch (I saw demonstrations on tv special). They distract you and unbuckle your watch without you knowing, then slip it off and away they go. With the deployent clasp they'll have to slide it off over your hand so there's a much bigger chance that you'll notice they are trying to steal from you. I think having anyones watch stolen off their wrist in that manner is highly unlikely, but I suppose having a deployent clasp will add peace of mind when you are in a busy area.

    If I wanted to get a Stowa deployment clasp later could I put it in the same strap without damage to the strap?

    Re: Deployment Clasp Question

    That's a good question. I recently bought a Tissot (Le Locle Chronograph) with deployment clasp. I like to wear a watch tight on my wrist so it cannot shift. When I did this, the clasp pressed into my wrist, which was rather uncomfortable. I bougt an aftermarket strap with buckle which I find very comfortable.
    I also ordered the Marine Original (first series, I expect it tomorrow ), but, due to my experience, without the deployment clasp.

    Re: Deployment Clasp Question

    It is really personal preference. With clasp, it can extend strap life, can show off IMO but sometimes feel uncomfortable; while tang buckle is comfortable, but shorten the strap life, I can see obvious change of my Nomos strap.

    Stowa clasp is good quality, but only design for thinner end strap-2-2.5mm, I found some thick end strap like Hirsch carbon can not install this clasp, or leave scratch on strap surface.:-S

    It's actually a deployant buckle, not deployment. It's spelled incorrectly on the website.
