I Knew There Was a Catch Somewhere

Recommended Posts

Unless you use an elastic band, most watches have a little component in the band or strap to secure it to your elegant wrist. The big question is which type is the best, or favourite?  Include a macro shot to make you point if necessary. Me?

Elegant wrist? I'm not a girl. No Elegance here.

Pre-V tang buckle. Single deployant with fold over safety clasp.

This is the same as shown above:

This is a Aqualand Watch Clasp that can be ....Extended by pressing those side buttons, They need to be slide a little to release the Clasp.

The are worked by this mechanism in them and they can be repaired I have a few of these also. Works great especially on big watch's because

of the weight and they keep snug also.

In here there are tiny springs and can be fixed using tiny spring bar springs

the size if most Click Ball Springs also.

By depressing those side levers and sliding them the Ratchet engages or Did-Engages to adjust it.

This one I have repaired also

Not my favourite but the most secure is this Timex Expedition, and absolute pig to undo. Usual buckle and peg but with a moulding on the strap which fits into the strap loop and makes it impossible for it to come off accidentally.

This is my preferred and most comfortable for a bracelet as you avoid the folded section of the clasp digging in your wrist, fat wrists here!
