  • Deployment

    The Deployment or Deployant Buckle is the metal buckle of the designer watch strap that is designed to attach the both sides of the strap. There are many styles and methods that help the owner to be ensured that the luxury watch on the wrist is not released suddenly. The Deployment Buckle or Deployment Buckle with Push-Button are the examples of this method of attaching the both sides of the high end watch strap. The Deployment Buckle is one of the wide-spread clasps among the connoisseurs of the fine watches because of its convenience. The opening of the clasp is made just by pulling the ends of the bracelet away from the wrist.

  • Design

    The concept of “design” has a long history of more than a half a thousand years. The first meaning of “design” comes from mystical process when God inspires the artist to create his unique masterpiece. For today, the idea of design in the world of luxury watches, obviously, has the same denotation. The watchmaker is the artist of his watch creation, and the design of his fine watch pieces appears in his mind thanks to his inspiration. Concerning the watch’s structure, every part of the luxury watch is a designer master piece. Beginning from watch case, bezel and crown to, of course, the markers of the watch’s dial: all are the result of designer idea. The strap, clasp and buckle are also the designer items. There is a designer watch, for example, created by Parmigiani that is figured as a sportive Buggatti race car. You can also find the Parmigiani designer watch with case created in a shape of a sports bike fuel tank. These luxury watches are for those watch connoisseurs who are in love with speed race and luxury cars.
