Strap size for 47112


I just bought a 47112 J and i want to change the buckle for a deployant.  I dont have the watch yet and my wife will bring it to me on march 7.  I would like to find out the size of the strap on the buckle  side so i can try to get a generic deployant.

Nice to meet everybody on the forum.

Hi Jaime,


That's a beautiful stunning watch. Is yours YG or platinum?

You will definitely love the moonphases.

The strap is 19mm at the lugs and 16mm at the buckle.

Here is a link to some pics:

Wear it always in good health.

And when you get it don't be afraid to put it on :-)

Oh, and don't drive with it on. You have to keep your eyes on the road

Best Wishes,

Dear Friends:

I call you friends because of your warm and fast response.

I feel very happy to be part of a comunity of such friendly people.

First of all i got the yg because i think the Pt is too heavy, and i fing yg more beautifull.

The deployant has two reasons:

-confort and care of the strap

-discretion.  I live in a very dangerous city and the watch with the original "cross" buckle looks original.

                  If i put a cheap stainless deployant it looks fake and i feel less insecure.

I already lost a phidias crono to the robers about 15 years ago and i dont want to go thru that ugly experience to loose a watch that may be impossible to replace like the phidias was.

Thank you all again for your warm welcome and as soon as i get the watch i will post some pictures with its new ugly deployant.

Regards to all,


welcome Jaimito, that's one hell of a cool watch you got, please post

Congratulations on such a great watch!!

I understand the advantages of a deployant buckle, and I say go for it.  But since we are talking of such a great watch, it might be better to get a VC deployant than just a generic one.  I am not sure if the VC deployant will fit the strap on this watch, but VC does offer deployants so it might be worth asking.  I am sure the half malte cross on the VC deployant will be the right icing on the cake (if available).  Just my two cents.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy your watch in good health.



Congratulations of your new purchase. Looking

forward to some pictures and a report after having it for awhile. I have the malte chrono with just the buckle and the buckle has a nice feel to it, you may not require the deployant.
