Maybe your strap is too thick?

I had a similar issue with an older Patek logo Deployant similar to yours' on my 5000J.

Most Calatrava models require an unlined, thinner, style strap. See if your strap is too thick.

Anyone have a fix for deployant clasp sticking out?

Would love if this could sit more flat (perpendicular) to my wrist rather than sticking out. Maybe just need a new strap? Or anything else I can do to fix? ...  

Hmm.... that's strange. I think the reason for the deployant clasp being not "flat" is because the strap at 12hr position is too long, hence pushing the clasp forwards and opening it up.

Hence a shorter strap (at least at the 12hr side) should be helpful. Perhaps a visit to the PP service center will be helpful? The staff there should know better on this issue.

i suggest you to change the direction of the strap

Wear your watch with the crown in direction of your shoulder and you will see if the fact to change the 2 lugs fixations will resolve your feeling ;-))

Reverse the straps. That solution has worked . . .

Too funny but great idea!

Not intended to be funny at all. Lots of people do it for that very problem, it sticks out on many wrists.

It's just not quickly noticed, but you might've seen it before, just didn't really notice it!
