Sapphire Crystal Glass
A watch clasp secures the strap or metal bracelet of a watch. There are a number of clasp options available, which are outlined below.
A deployment clasp opens out into thirds, which allows the watch to fit over the wrist and hand before it is secured into place by a small hook clasp.
Push-button Deployment Clasp
A push-button deployment clasp works in the same way but has the addition of buttons on either side of the clasp which must be pushed to release.
Fold-over Push Button
A fold-over pushbutton deployment or fold-over safety clasp has an extra security feature in the form of a fold-over latch. Along with the pushbutton, this helps ensure the clasp does not open on its own.
A hidden deployment buckle clasp is also known as a butterfly clasp. This opens at both ends of the strap and resembles a butterfly’s wings when fully opened. The clasp easily opens and closes for convenience.A buckle and pin clasp is a very common clasp closure and similar to what you can see on a belt. It features a loop and pin which are secured through holes on the strap.
A jewellery clasp is widely used on many bracelet straps. It features a latch that opens and closes when attached to the latch bar on the other end of the bracelet.
The origin of a watch is where it has been assembled. Many watch brands are Swiss-made but there are a number of brands that originate from other countries, for example U-Boat is made in Italy and Bremont is made in England. Some watch brands will use Swiss-made parts, such as the movement, but the watch will be assembled elsewhere.
