    Thank you for this! I was just starting to shop for deployant clasps and you made the decision really easy.

    That watch-strap combo is still one of my favorites. How would you rate the comfort of the deployant? I've been looking to try one, but I have a skinny/small wrist and I've heard that deployants aren't all that great for guys like me...

    Is there a difference between a double-fold/butterfly or a single-fold deployant? (in terms of comfort)

    Happy to help! I am rather pleased with the purchase--especially for the price (and the seller is a fellow WUS, not just some guy trying to make a quick buck, although I'm sure he turns a nice profit with the number of these he sells).

    I find it to be pretty comfortable myself. I have a rather large wrist, so I don't have much double-leather overlap left after I close the clasp, and I find the butterfly infinitely easier to close on my big wrist than a single-fold. It's somewhat difficult for me to speak toward how it'd be on a smaller wrist, but I think the butterfly would would better for a smaller wrist as well. Pure speculation, but assuming that the discomfort for smaller wristed folks comes from the metal at the bottom extending longer across than their wrist, I think the butterfly's solid metal that lays against your wrist would (I think) be smaller than the same on a single-fold. YMMV--I've never owned a single-fold (only tried one on), don't have a small wrist, etc.

    I have switched all my leather bands to butterfly deployants at this point. I just prefer the aesthetic, comfort and ease of putting them on. I tried a single clasp from RHD and the quality was fine, but it was not comfortable at all, which I attribute to my smaller wrists. I think he even says on his site that they won't work for a certain size wrist, but I forget what the cutoff was.

    SNDA57 on a Morellato cordura strap (narrows to 18mm at the buckle, which makes the watch infinitely more comfortable).

    Nice Watch DocDace, I break out mine regularly though, the version without any lettering though:

    @Viralence I like the strap on your watch. I definitely need to upgrade the one on my watch.

    Been a while since I posted here. Watch rotation has been primarily the GS since I got it. Just got this Christopher Ward in yesterday. Digging the red bezel.
