That's unsettling! Do you know if the 2 blades mate securely when closed?

Sometimes you need to bend 1 of the 2 flanges a bit, to ensure a good fit that's neither too hard or too easy to close. The deployants can be very hard to close (which means sometimes they don't close at all) or too easy to close (which means they can spontaneously open). I have never had one open up like that, spontaneously, when the blades were properly aligned -- when you feel and hear a distinctive "click" without needing to apply a ton of pressure.

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 added a deployant to my Zeitwerk

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.

has deployment clasps on stock and change it, if desired. He also send the unused pin buckles back to Lange and so you only have to pay the price difference. The only is that Lange does not have modified leather straps for deployment clasps (shorter lengt...
I would get it.

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...
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.

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...
