Frugal way to get a divers extension Z clasp

Postby svaglic » February 21st 2016, 10:33am

I love the extension Z clasp, but they seem to run from $75.00 and up.
So, in my searches, I came up with a way to save myself some money on them.

Condor makes a nice Z clasp extension. I used to just be able to get the clasp on ebay, but now have to buy one on a bracelet. I get them here;

ImageThey come in 18mm, 20mm and 22mm.

Then I get a mesh band from here;

Then I switch clasps out. So for around $50.00 I am able to get an extension clasp on mesh. It's nice to have when the weather changes, just push the button and adjust on the go.

I do end up with extra Condor bracelets on a normal clasp, but it's not like I don't appreciate having extra bracelets around, especially if I want to add one as a bonus band on a watch I sell or trade.

Frugle, I know, but I really like an extension clasp and it's a cheap way to get one. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else has been looking for a cheaper alternative to paying full price for one.

Sounds like a good idea. Haven't had a z clasp like that except on one watch, a Citizen Promaster diver. Was sweet!

That particular bracelet is one of the best I've ever seen on a cheap diver.

Bought it at a steal. Sold it like an idiot.

Thanks for putting that picture up, it shows it well. It's real easy to just push the buttons on the clasp and let it out or in. The best in micro adjustments. It would probably work on other bracelets, I have just been on a mesh craze for a year or two.
