Rolex offers a wide variety of bracelets but ideally only four exist. The Pearlmaster bracelet is also practically counted as a bracelet option. However, Rolex produces this bracelet style in minimal numbers. In fact, the Pearlmaster bracelet is fitted to gem-set Rolex Pearlmaster line of watches.
All other Rolex watches typically come on Jubilee, President or Oyster bracelet. Here is a quick comparison between three of the most popular Rolex bracelets – Jubilee, President and Oyster. Take a look!
The Jubilee bracelet was originally introduced in 1945. Rolex designed and produced this bracelet for the Datejust watches to commemorate the brand’s 40th anniversary. However, the bracelet was available only in solid gold when it was first released. While the brand released the President bracelet as a leading bracelet option, Rolex now manufacturers the Jubilee in each metal combination apart from white gold and platinum.
The Jubilee bracelet features a semi-circular, 5-piece link design with a more elegant and pleasant look.
While Rolex continues to enhance the functionality and durability of its watch components, the Jubilee bracelet has also received many upgrades over time.
Earlier, Rolex fitted the bracelet to many different Rolex watches. However, today the Jubilee bracelet comes equipped on the GMT-Master II and Datejust models.
Rolex devised the President bracelet for its Day-Date line of timepieces. However, since its introduction in 1956, the manufacturer has crafted the bracelet only from platinum or solid 18ct gold. The President bracelet is indeed the brand’s flagship-offering, rendered as an option on the Lady Datejust’s precious metal version and the Day-Date references.
Moreover, the bracelet is characterised by semi-circular, 3-piece link design that offers a more sophisticated feel and appearance. On the other hand, the single, rounded centre link provides this bracelet with a lesser dainty look compared to the Jubilee bracelet.
However, the latest President bracelets come with ceramic inserts within the links that render increased durability. Additionally, they are always equipped with the patented Crownclasp, offering a sound effect throughout the band.
The Oyster is the original in-house bracelet design of the brand, released during the late 1930s. Rolex offers this specific bracelet style as an exclusive option on every Rolex watch. Interestingly enough, the brand manufactures the Oyster bracelet in all precious metal combinations. However, some Rolex watches’ collection, such as the Explorer and Submariner are available only with an Oyster bracelet.
Since its initial introduction, the Oyster bracelet has been featuring three-link design. However, the flat, large link structure makes the bracelet look more robust. Rolex has improved and updated the Oyster bracelet over time. But the overall appearance and aesthetic of the bracelet remained the same, thereby becoming one of the explicate features of the brand.
