ROLEX Watch Bracelets
Posted on 22 March 2016
Hey guys, it’s Malaysia! I want to write a little bit today to tell you about some of the styles available for Rolex watch bracelets. The bracelet of your watch is really important because it completely sets the tone for your watch. The look, size, colour, fabrication, and style of your bracelet can range from casual to dressy to sporty, nighttime, daytime, every day, special occasion and the list goes on and on. Rolex takes so much pride in the composition and aesthetic of their bracelets so what better brand to dive into? Let’s look at the 3 most greatly used and popular styles of Rolex bracelets
First we have the Oyster bracelet that was created in the 1930s. It’s made of flat 3 piece metal links and is the mainstay of the Oyster series. It’s used for the entire Professional collection but can also be used for more classic styles like the Datejust, Day-Date, and the Sky-Dweller and can be made with all types of clasps. The oyster bracelet is probably the most versatile of the 3. Depending on your dial and bezel it could be considered more casual or a little dressier.
Next is the President bracelet. The Prez was made in 1956 exclusively for the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date, and is still reserved for that watch to this day in addition to special versions of the ladies Datejust. The President bracelet is recognized by its semi-circular 3 piece links. The President bracelet is always fitted with the Crownclasp which is Rolex’s concealed clasp. Perfect for every minimalist.
Lastly we have the Jubilee bracelet. It’s an extremely comfortable 5 piece link bracelet. It was designed for the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945. Widely considered the most iconic Rolex bracelet. It’s fun and in my (never humble) opinion is the most glam. To me this bracelet really looks like a piece of jewelry by itself. This is the bracelet for those who aren’t afraid to show off.
Regardless of which bracelet you like best, you can never go wrong with Rolex. A brand dedicated to excellence and timelessness. The world of horology is forever in debt to a company like Rolex which has always pushed the limits and broken boundaries in aesthetics and innovation. Whichever Rolex bracelet graces the comfort of your wrist is the right bracelet.
That’s all for now!
