The comeback of the Jubilee bracelets on the Datejust II
The Rolex Datejust is an icon, certainly the most iconic dress watch from Rolex. This watch was created in 1945, meaning that this year it will celebrate its 70th anniversary – or “jubilee,” as the industry likes to call it. So we’ve simply imagined the comeback of the iconic Jubilee bracelets on the large Datejust II, which has a 41-mm case.
Using the exact same specifications, dials and bezels, we’re just adding a choice between the modern (and maybe too sporty) Oyster bracelet and the vintage-inspired but full-of-charm Jubilee bracelets. It means that you’d be able to fit such a bracelet on the stainless-steel edition (with the flat polished bezel), on the two-tone version (with its fluted bezel in yellow gold) or on the white-gold version (with blue Roman numerals and also a fluted bezel). This would bring a timeless elegance to the Rolex Datejust II that the Oyster bracelet cannot offer. Furthermore, Rolex now knows how to craft good bracelets and stretching won’t be an issue anymore – not like on the old Jubilee bracelets.
Don’t forget that these are only our predictions for the Rolex 2015 introductions. Rolex could (and certainly will) come to Baselworld with other watches that no one could have imagined. However, tell us what you think about these ideas. You, as our readers and watch enthusiasts, certainly have an opinion that we would like to hear.
