Myth: A Fun Story (With All Geeky) Rolex Oyster Bracelet

But this was just the beginning of the Oyster bracelet, which was legal in February 1947 (patent number 257,185, if you think) and first appeared in the Rolex brochure in 1948. Rolex – Jubilee has this honor, as it was incorporated by the new Datejust in setting up the line better known in 1945.

Initially, the Oyster bracelet was used extensively by so-called “bubble backs” and chronographs, while strings remained the most popular form of Rolex. The manufacture and construction of the Oyster bracelet was abandoned intact for a decade and a half after its inception, but a major increase began in 1952. To date, the Oyster bracelet has come with a straight edge, but finally patent number 303,005 breathed life into the final connection, which completed the form. Rolex as we know it today.
