    Rolex 1981 Datejust Bracelet - Suggestions / Information

    Hi All,

    My lovely wife purchased a Rolex for me in London recently and it came with a leather strap instead of the original Rolex bracelet. I am not really sure what have been on the original or where I could look to get something original to replace... Any suggestions/information would be appreciated...

    Hello, and welcome to the forum. Is your Datejust two tone, gold, or stainless? Their are a lot of possibilities with quality aftermarket oyster or jubilee styles, if you want genuine Rolex from that era their are a few sellers/dealers that sell vintage authentic bracelets on watchrecon.com.

    I have a SS jubilee that would work perfectly with that watch, if you are interested.

    the bracelet is stamped M5, meaning it was produced in June of 1988. It is period correct for your watch. I have all the links and the end pieces. Let me know. Thanks.

    imo the oyster bracelet is much more attractive than the jubilee type - but it is a matter of personal choice -
    as regards the oyster bracelet i believe the correct one would likely be the 78350 with 557ends Name:  IMG_1111.jpg
