March 30, 2016

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to identify a Rolex wristwatch is by the bracelet. Rolex offers five different bracelet types on their current models, each with a unique look and functionality.

The Five Rolex Bracelet Types Available 
Oysterflex Bracelet 

The Oysterflex is the newest bracelet manufactured by Rolex for their 2015 Yacht-Master model. This black elastomer bracelet has a blade made of a titanium-nickel alloy at its core that attaches the case to the clasp. The inside of the bracelet is lined with a longitudinal cushion system that stabilizes the watch on the wrist and it is fitted with an Everose gold Oysterlock clasp.

Oyster Bracelet 

The most universal and identifiable of the Rolex bracelets is the Oyster bracelet. Composed of flat and broad three piece links, this bracelet can be fitted with all of the Rolex clasps currently available. The Oyster was introduced in the late 1930s and is currently fitted on the most popular Rolex models, including the Submariner, Daytona and Sky-Dweller.

The five piece metal link Jubilee bracelet was introduced in 1945 on the Oyster Perpetual Datejust model. It can be fitted with either an Oysterclasp or a Crownclasp. The photo below shows a two-tone Jubilee with the Crownclasp.

President Bracelet 

Perhaps one of the most prestigious Rolex bracelets, the iconic President bracelet features a three-piece semicircular link that was introduced in 1956 on the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. It is always fitted with a Crownclasp, as shown in the photograph below and is reserved for the Day-Date model and some Lady's Datejust models.

Pearlmaster Bracelet 

The Pearlmaster made its debut in 1992 on the model of the same name. It features five rounded links on a sophisticated and smooth bracelet that always comes fitted with a Crownclasp. The rectangular links on this model made it perfect for adding diamonds down the bracelet as we see in the current Pearlmaster model.
