For me and my small wrist, the single fold deployants comfort really depends on the length of the straps. It needs to be really short on one end or else it digs into my wrist at a weird angle. I never had a problem with the butterfly clasp but it tends to be thicker and bulkier and I do not find it ideal on dressier watches.

I'm over deployants. Haven't found any that are as comfortable as a simple tang buckel.

Thanks. Do you have any single deployants where the strap is against the skin instead of the metal? Which is more comfortable to you?

I just find the single fold deployants to be prettier. Sacrifices must be made for beauty and fashionz!

The first two show the single and double deployment.

Not my pics.

Apologies, as I am not trying to be snarky, but it is "Deployant".

You're so snarky.

Thanks, understood. My question isn't about appearance but comfort related to the position of the strap. Is it more comfortable to have the end of the strap against the inside of the wrist or the buckle. Have attached two pics to illustrate. On the top one, the strap is outside; on the second one, the strap is inside. Based on your experience, which would be more comfortable for a day in the office?

Haha...no worries.

If it fits properly, it doesn't really matter.
post #37705 of 48312
I've never seen that second one.
post #37706 of 48312
That second one is how the Omega deployants work currently.
post #37707 of 48312
That deployant style is most popular on Tags. Tag also has one of the best designs when it comes to micro adjustments, you just slide it on any position on the leather.

Hey guys, can you give career advice? How do you get to the point where you can afford AP, PP, VC, JLC, ALS, IWC etc. I am 24 years now. Very little savings , work all day. Thanks.

Not sure how much you'll make, but I can give you the same advice I give my staff and colleagues regarding career development: always give added value to your clients -- but don't expect to be paid for it until your next job or assignment. The added-value work will always pay off, as it will separate you from the others doing the same job as you. People who give added-value always advance until they reach their potential, and they learn not to grumble about being underpaid in their current job, because they know that they'll be compensated for that work in their next one, where the added-value will be part of their core function.

 

Best of luck ...
