Bracelets and clasps play a full part in the unique pleasure of wearing a Rolex watch. Their ergonomics are carefully studied, while their robustness and reliability, their aesthetics and lustre are all inherent to the personality of the timepiece.
Like the Oyster case, they are the product of a complex alchemy of form and function. Their design, development and production, as well as the stringent tests they face, involve advanced technology, know-how and craftsmanship.
No other part of a Rolex is subject to such regular manipulation as the clasp, a tactile bond between the watch and its wearer. Few are so crucial to the security of a Rolex owner’s prized possession and to their comfort.
Created from highly corrosion-resistant Oystersteel, this double expansion bracelet was designed for a life lived underwater.

This remarkable extension allows for a secure and comfortable fit over the most protective diving suits.
