In addition to our custom manufactured ‘D9’ Logo buckles, We also offer a number of aftermarket buckles and straps in all shapes and sized.  Of course, if we don’t stock the ‘D9’ logo buckle or clasp in the size of configuration that you need or want for our custom strap project, we are happy to offer you these alternative options.  Further, if you don’t see exactly the buckle that you would like for your custom strap, please let me know what you are looking for and I will be glad to try to find it for you.

These buckles very well made with a screw-in attachment and are typically available in 20 to 26mm and widths and in Brushed and Polished Stainless Steel as well as Brushed or Matte PVD finish, Polished Rose Gold-tone and Yellow Gold-ton.  Additionally, I can sometimes acquire these in solid Bronze and Titanium:

IWC Pilot Style Buckles:

These buckles are designed to look like the buckles which are used by IWC on many of their Pilot style and other straps, but without the IWC log and without the high cost.  These are a great alternative for your custom strap for IWC where you would like the OEM look but don’t need to have a High-cost IWC logo buckle.  Please bear in mind that I do not sell buckles with IWC or any other watch manufacturer logo.  If you want a genuine Logo item, there are many fakes on the market, so I strongly recommend you contact an authorized dealer for your brand in order to assure you are buying a genuine item:

Specifications: Pin Buckle, 2mm Holes, Widths: 18mm, Finishes: Brushed with Polished facets Steel, Black PVD, Yellow and Rose Gold-tone:

Massive Knife-edge buckle:

These massive buckles are available in 24mm widths and in Stainless Steel with Brushed or Polished finish and in Blasted finish Titanium.  These buckles are ordered from a supplier in Australia, so I’ll need a bit of lead time to order, but these are among the highest quality and machined buckles I have yet seen.  Please bear in mind that while these buckles are extremely thick at about 5mm, that have a substantial cutout for the strap on the underside so that they sit relatively flush to the wrist:

Specifications: 24mm width, 5mm thick, 3.5mm holes, Brushed and Polished Stainless Steel, and Blasted solid Titanium:

 

Aftermarket Deployant clasps:

I offer a number of deployant clasp options, some of which I have in stock and other of which I will special order for your strap project from my network of suppliers.  These are a great choice if you are a deployant clasp guy or gal and want to preserve your strap by preventing undue bending while putting on and taking off your watch.  Our straps are made with a vegetable-tanned mid-layer for extreme internal strength, but even so, some or our customers just prefer the look and feel of a deployant clasp:

Omega style deployant clasp:

These clasps are one of my favorite clasp designs on the market they still allow for a strap that is relatively thick at the deployant interface at about 3mm and since the long side strap tucks to the inside of the wrist, not keeper loops are necessary, which results in a very clean/streamlined look in the wrist.  These clasps offer the additional security of a button activation.  Please note however that this style clasp requires a different strap length proportion between the short and long side straps and as previously mentioned no keeper loops so if your order your strap to fit this style clasp, you will not be able to switch to another buckle or clasp after your strap is made.

By way of example, if you have a 7 inch (18cm) wrist, for most watches, I would recommend your strap be 125/80mm in length, however, with this style clasp, I would recommend a length of 105/100mm in length.

Specifications: Single Swing-arm, button closure, 16mm to 20mm width and with Brushed, Polished, Yellow and Rose gold-tone finishes. I generally I would recommend this style clasp for straps with no larger than 22mm lug width:

Double Butterfly Deployant clasp:

These are sort of an industry standard and are great for all kinds of watches, but especially larger and heavier sports – the button activation provides the additional security.  Additionally, these clasps allow for up to about a 4mm strap so that even our thicker Swiss Ammo and Panerai style straps will work with these clasps.  Available in 18 to 24mm widths and in finishes ranging from Brushed and Polished stainless steel as well at polished yellow and rose gold-tone and Polished and brushed PVD as well

Specifications: double Swing-arm, button closure, 18 to 24mm widths, 2mm holes, Material: Stainless Steel, Finishes Brushed, Polished, Polished Yellow and Rose Gold-tone, Polished and Brushed black PVD

Single Butterfly deployant clasp:

This is the clasp that I recommend for smaller, less bulky dress watches, which are not heavy and so don’t necessarily need the additional security or extra bulk of button activation.  with a signal swing arm and no side buttons, it’s also most likely to be more comfortable than the bit Double deployment clasps above.

Specifications:  Single swing-arm, snap closure, 16 to 22mm width, 2mm holes, up to 3.5mm thick strap, Material: Stainless Steel, Finishes: Brushed and Polished Stainless, Yellow and Rose Gold Polished, and Polished and Brushed black PVD.

IWC style deployant clasp:

These clasp are designed to look like those used by IWC on many of their Pilot style and other straps, but without the IWC log and without the high cost.  These are a great alternative for your custom strap for IWC or other pilot style watches where you would like the OEM look but don’t need to have a High-cost IWC logo clasp.  Please bear in mind that I do not sell clasps with IWC or any other watch manufacturer logo.  If you want a genuine Logo item, there are many fakes on the market, so I strongly recommend you contact an authorized dealer for your brand in order to assure you are buying a genuine item:

Specifications: Single swing-arm, snap closure, 18mm, 3mm thickness strap, Material: Stainless Steel, Finished: Steel, Black PVD, Yellow and Rose Gold-Tone:
