The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection. An increase in temperature, altitude or physical activity may cause your wrists
to expand and can even make wearing a watch uncomfortable. This is why Rolex invented and patented Easylink, an extension system that lets the wearer increase the bracelet length by about 5 mm to regain maximum comfort.
