Omega Rubber: Fold Over or Buckle and Tang?

I’m a bracelet guy but I know I want to add an Omega rubber strap to the collection. Simple question for the community: fold over clasp or buckle and tang? Which do you prefer?

·

No question.  Fold-over is easier to get on and off of the wrist.  Plus it tends to look tidier.

·

I'm a deployant guy and the Omega style deployants are very good.

Frankly, I like the Omega rubber straps much more than their bracelets.

·

I have the OEM rubber with deployant on my AT Small Seconds. It’s fantastic. 

·

Deployant all day long.

·

i dont mind some deployants but some really dig into my wrist cough seiko cocktail presage cough which is why i prefer tang buckle

·

I might go buckle and tang just to have both types in my Omega collection. 

·

Another vote for the Omega deployant.  I have one on a 41mm AT and its fantastic. 

·

fold over is bulky and heavier and is designed to look like a buckle anyway.

·

The buckle and tang are actually getting 26%? This is like the best and most comfortable deployant ever.

I have one on my Seamaster 300M and it's awesome.  Same setup as the one on the AT Worldtimer I used to own.

The Aqua Terra on OEM rubber with fold over deployant is my daily wear. So you know what my vote is. Super comfortable and versatile.

·

I got what GoingTopShelf has and that Omega rubber strap is so comfortable.  You will love it.  Singe foldover deployments are best.  Butterfly deployment clasps are for the birds. 

·

For me, in addition to the cleaner look, I chose deployant clasp over buckle because it eliminate the risk of dropping the watch accidentally.

·

I'm a buckle and tang guy, but I don't tend to use many OEM straps.

·

I had buckle and tangs on the Seamaster Diver 300’s that came on the watches.  They were okay, but I like to swap straps a lot.  Then, today, I took delivery of an Aqua Terra small seconds that has the fold over deployant.  Wow I love this over a buckle and tang!

Have the same AT and love it.
