Watch Out: 4 Fashionable Rolex Bracelets

by Kevin Smith Author

One way to fully appreciate the classic nature of a Rolex watch is to marvel at its strap. The bracelet flaunts the brand's strong design codes: distinct and full of character. That's why you won't mistake a Rolex for another product. If you're asking yourself, "Before I sell my Rolex in Atlanta, what are its bracelet types?" then you've come to the right place. Learn more about the 4 fashionable bands for this luxury watch.

 

The Oyster

This is comprised of the iconic 3-piece link metal band of flat, wide, and squarish pieces that are built to last. It's available in polished and brushed finishes or both. This is made out of steel, gold, platinum, two-tone steel and gold and secured either with Oysterclasp or Oysterlock. The former has a folding clasp with the Rolex coronet embossed on the cover. The latter features a safety latch with a spring-loaded locking mechanism, the logo etched onto it.

 

First introduced in the late 1930s and patented in 1947, the Oyster is the only design that's available as an option for every Rolex watch. You can see this bracelet on the Submariner, GMT-Master, Cosmograph Daytona, Oyster Perpetual, Explorer III, Sea-Dweller 4000, or Datejust models. It has undergone numerous improvements through the years without losing its design, making it a mainstay in Rolex's luxury collection.

 

The Jubilee

If you see a semi-circular, 5-piece metal link band on a Rolex, then that's the Jubilee. The design includes larger links flanking 3 thinner interior links that are more noticeable if you have two-tone Rolesor finishes. This can be made of solid gold and steel. It's secured with a Crownclasp built into the inner band, exposing only the intricate Jubilee pattern outside.

 

The Jubilee was first designed in 1945 for the first Perpetual Datejust line in celebration of the company's 40th anniversary. Today, this bracelet comes only with the Datejust II or Oyster Perpetual Datejust models. It's also an option for GMT-Master II lines.

 

The Pearlmaster

This also has the Jubilee's distinct 5-piece links, only with rounded metal pieces in alternating sizes. It's fitted with a concealed Crownclasp. First released in 1992, this bracelet is exclusive to Rolex Pearlmaster models.

 

The President

Crafted using only 18-karat platinum or gold, the President is fitted with a hidden Crownclasp that gives the bracelet a seamless effect throughout. First introduced in 1956, this flagship bracelet has 3-piece, semi-circular links with a single, rounded center attachment. Modern President bracelets have ceramic inserts in the links to enhance the band's durability.

 

This bracelet is only available for the Lady President and Day-Date models. It's available in platinum, solid yellow, white, and rose gold.
