    The Rolex Oyster bracelet is one of Rolex’s trademark qualities found on all its watches. Current Rolex Oyster bracelets are made of 904L steel, like the watch case, and are very durable because of the design and manufacturing techniques used in manufacturing them. The Rolex Oyster bracelet is assembled with solid links and pivot pins that are press fit into the Oyster band links. The bracelet is fitted to the watch head with the use of a solid end link, and double shouldered spring bars. Fitting the bracelet is done with the use of Rolex’s Oyster clasp, a spring loaded clasp utilizing milled stainless parts.

    When having links removed or added, always make sure the watchmaker uses the proper Loctite. Otherwise, the screws will work themselves out at some point!
