    So this just happened...

    I was putting my 114060 Sub-C on a NATO as I am apt to do from time to time, and for giggles I grabbed my 16550 Explorer II and slid the Glidelock bracelet between the lugs. Itís a perfect fit, absolutely no play. Not to be hyperbolic, but it may actually be a better fit than on the 114060. Has anyone else had success fitting their modern bracelets on vintage counterparts?

    If you wear an old Rolex without the POS bracelet is it still a Rolex?

    I put a modern Explorer I bracelet on a Sub 5-digit. Works great.

    Looks great to me! I wish OPs had the extra safety of the diverís clasps. I just donít like how easy the single one is to open. Nice fit. Are you going to keep it that way?

    I can see you’ve never handled an old Rolex bracelet.

    As long as you feel satisfied and comfortable with it, then I think it's totally gorgeous..
