    Thanks SF. I was hoping someone understood exactly what he was asking and you hit the nail on the head.

    Thanks, I like deployants on some watches but quite honestly the pin-buckle is fine on most straps.

I would welcome opinions as to which type is thinner and which is generally more comfortable. thanks jack.
    Hello,

    Try this watch-band-center dot com. They have a very large selection of bands. They sell a leather band with a "safety clasp" which is very thin, other materials are available as well. I have some made by Voguestrap for Timex that I bought years ago but they don't seem to make them anymore.

    Hi Guys, Many thanks for the further advice and info. One thing I have noticed during my research is that clasps tend to be advertised as being used on large watches and bulky straps such as Omega, Tag and Rolex.
    My small thin Seiko and standard leather strap[ 5mm tapering to 2mm ] do not appear to be really suited to a clasp but rather a tang buckle.
    However I think a clasp looks good and will lengthen the life of of my strap.

    I am curious, why are you looking on Ebay? These clasps are on Strapsco.

    Whatever your reason, strapsco on Ebay works.
