    97200 Glidelock bracelet authenticity

    Any experts here that can verify whether this brand new 97200 bracelet is genuine?
    These pictures were sent to me by the seller on request.

    Wanted to make sure before pulling the trigger as this is not cheap. Any red flags here?

    I have a question regarding the sandblasted Rolex logo. Majority of the ones I've seen in pictures are graphite in colour, and some silver. is this down the the year?

    I am not an expert but to be honest, the bracelet does look original to me. I am not sure how you managed to find someone selling it unless that someone is in possession of a stolen watch and stripping them up for parts to be sold separately or already has two of the same and do not need the bracelet.

    When you say it is "not cheap", how much is it that it is not cheap?

    I would also suggest for you to cast your net wider to get more feedback on the authenticity by posting this in the fake busters section. There are a few regulars who only post there and they will also assist to eyeball it.

    Why is he selling it? From the look of the photos its still got the factory plastic on it in places which would mean hes selling a brand new Rolex bracelet. You cant just walk into an AD and buy a bracelet. It needs to be tied up with the relevant watch purchase. The only other option is hes putting his new watch on a NATO and I cant think of many people who would do that to their Rolex and leave the nato on permanently. So unless hes got a perfectly good story and has the paperwork for it I wouldnt bother. Take your watch into an AD and let them order you the relevant bracelet. You mention this is "not cheap" so youre only looking to add a few more £ for a guaranteed legit bracelet.

    I second this. I asked the OP in my post just how much is he talking about when he said it wasn't cheap. Agree with you that if the margin or delta is not much, then he is better off to purchase an original for true peace of mind.

    Thanks for the heads up. Will post in the fake busters section as well.

    Seller seems legit, has been a verified dealer on chrono24 since 2009, with a brick and mortar store in Italy. Currently sold 1400 watches with buyer protection and about 700 reviews.
    Price is about 3000euros.

    Yes, the seller said it comes fully stickered and in original shipping case. You can just about see it in the first picture in the top

    I ordered mine from my AD for $2,200 plus tax, for what that is worth. Maybe try giving them a call?
