buckle advice?

Have a few 24mm straps for PAM that I acquired sans buckles.
Checked all the known vendors and prices are all over the place, i.e., $7 to $50. (Very happy with the three aegir roller buckles I have, but looking for something more in the pre-v or oem panerai style for these straps). I've stripped a few of the cheaper panatime buckles, so looking to try something a bit nicer this go round.
Anyone have a recommendation for a known entity quality option, i.e., well machined, nice curve to fit and quality screws/threads?
I've read great things about the gsd pre-v buckles, but at $30 a pop, would like to hear good things from someone here before i jump in on those.
Any feedback or recommendations greatly appreciated...
thanks deedub!

The GSD buckles are excellent, but a little chunky. You can’t beat the thumbnail buckles from SAS, in my opinion.

Edit: Greg sells his buckles without the GSD monogram if that’s not your thing.

thanks Chris!
forgot about SAS, and you are right, I have two of their rubber straps and buckles are very well made, and a great size/fit.

Those Rob Montana Pre-V buckles look super thick.

thanks Don.
fell out with the paneristi, and forgot about many of the custom strapmakers...
