    Question Possible to determine the year of manufacture of a Men's Rolex steel clasped bracelet?

    My digital camera is on the fritz, but here's what's marked on the underside of one of the clasp parts, from left to right:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Patented & Registered Swiss Made
    (Large "Rolex" with crown symbol in a wavy-lines crest)
    Steelinox
    62510H
    A
    (Small Rolex Crown Symbol)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Also, "555" is stamped on one of the corners on each underside of the bracelet ends, where the bracelet meets the case between the lugs.

    If you know what these markings mean in terms of the relative age or exact year of manufacture of the bracelet, please let me know!
    Thanks.

    I believe the "H" is 1983.

    555 are your end links which I think are for a Datejust.

    62150 is for a Jubilee bracelet.

    What watch is it on or going on?

    Thumbs Up Thank you!

    Thanks very much!

    It's going on a late-1950's to early-1960's Orano "Duke" model with a light champagne dial, arrowhead hour indices, fluted white gold bezel and black & red alternating date window that has a 25 jewel, pink gilt AS 1681 automatic movement. It looks like a Datejust from a distance.
