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 $3.00 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 $3 off.

NEW DF3 Push button Single Fold

Just in, single fold, push button, standard flip lock lid, available in 16mm, 18mm and 20mm. Rounded edges of the pushers for extreme comfort, take a close look. Excellent manufacture as you can see in the pictures (these actually cost me more then the DF1 double fold). Introductory price: $39.95


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.

Price is $47.95 delivered with a set of jewelers screwdrivers (approx 1.0mm and .6mm) for each side of the buckle . Sizes 16mm, 18mm, 20mm and 22mm.

Check out these pics.

ALSO, NEW 18mm matte Gold Plated $49.50.

Price is $46.95 delivered with a free Swiss screwdriver (.8mm) for the buckle side attachment. Sizes 16mm, 18mm, 20mm and 22mm.

New 4mm pins for extra thick straps, regular DF2 has 3mm pin, pls specify when ordering
