They are certainly steep in price and unlike other brands like VC where you can just go for a steel version instead of precious metal (at a 1/5 of the price), Lange does not have that option.
I agree with your point re it being safer, especially since the watches are on the heavier side. For me, it also balances out the heft on the top of the wrist and increases the life of the strap (significantly in my case in view of very frequent wear).
I personally prefer deployants on all my watches. My Langes are all on a single fold. But others strongly favor the butterfly version. It really has to do with your wrist comfort as price wise they are the same. The challenge is finding both options in the same place to figure out what works best for your wrist as they are hard to source through ADs and on back order at Boutiques as recently as a few months ago (was helping a friend source one).
One thing I will say, I recently broke my platinum deployant (let’s call it due to excessive wear over 10 or so years) and the Boutique took care of it at no charge and even shipped it to me overnight once fixed as I was out of town so that I get it sooner. So they stand behind their product and you are getting something for life.
Hope this helps!

Deployment Clasp for A. Lange & Söhne?
By: Lunar fan : March 17th, 2023-14:48
Curious if anyone has any experience adding a deployment buckle to any Lange that came stock with a pin buckle. My watches with a deployment buckle feel far more secure on the wrist than any with the pin. It's easier on and off, and less of a stress on th...

Lange deployant buckles; there is a single fold and a butterfly double fold. I believe there are 16&18 mm sizes. I was fortunate to buy a.watch that came with one; otherwise like you said it is between 3-7k usd? Between gold and Pt? I also have a watch th...

I like having it on there. It does help balance the watch as it is quite heavy. The craftsmanship is commensurate with Lange. Hope that helps.

A deployment of deployants
By: CR : March 18th, 2023-00:02
I think you should get it. I do not like tang (pin) buckles at all. I always prefer deployant buckles. But deployants (including Lange's single-fold deployant, above) are uncomfortable if the curve of the buckle is not centered on the underside of your wr...

Thanks for all the pix, super helpful! I like the idea of the single clasp with a leather strap (Like a Tag Monaco) i find it quite comfortable. On a mesh bracelet (like a Certina diver) the double works great I appreciate your insights
I added a new Lange single fold deployant to my Lange 1 in WG.
By: Steve E : March 18th, 2023-02:49
The weight adds some balance, and it seems more secure when putting on / taking off, and certainly it's less common to see the deployant. One day, getting out of the car, I felt the watch loose on my wrist under my jacket. Lucky it did not fall off and hi...
