Deployants by AXEL JOST, Germany

Axel Jost, located in Germany, has been producing all types of buckles & clasps for watch straps for over 30 years and specializes in gold and gold plating. I have selected their DS1 model, the finest in their line (and plan to add more in time). They supply deployants & buckles to several top tier watch companies, of course too secretive to share, but they did confide in me as part of my qualification process.

Discount of $5.00 available with the purchase of any strap I sell.

Skilled German craftsmanship, solid assembled parts, modestly priced for this level of quality.

Buy a strap & deployant combo, take an additional $5 off.


Here is something new by Axel Jost, the DF2 Premium. Push button, double fold, stainless steel with the added features of a screw to secure the end to "the point" (that is the long end ) and screw in pins ( no spring bar!) to easily add to "the buckle" (shorter side of the watch strap).

These are amazing, the best deployant on the market IMHO. As with the DF1, made in Germany, land of craftsmanship, precision, quality.

Check out these pics, which I hastily put together.

Price is $44.95 delivered with a free Swiss screwdriver (.8mm) for the buckle side attachment. Sizes 16mm, 18mm, 20mm (22mm on backorder)

I've had this on my 356 for a couple of weeks to test drive & love it! Strap picture.

Take a look at the underside of their deployants; you'll note the edges are rounded and not square. This adds substantially to the comfort of the piece.
