    Rolex’s standard size for Oyster Bracelets

    Hi all,

    I’ve recently bought a 14060M from Watchfinder with the bracelet sized to 17.5cm for my wrist.

    The bracelet itself now doesn’t have any links with screws in them and I was wondering if the standard issue bracelet from Rolex is/ was meant to come with these extra links?

    I know buying pre-owned often results in buying whatever the previous owner had it sized to however I’d be interested to know if I’m technically due any additional links?

    Grateful for insights as always!

    At one time I owned a 14060M that I now wish I’d kept. My wrist is virtually same size as yours, and when I sized the bracelet to fit my wrist, I had two links with screws left to put in the box as I recall.

    Easier if you told us how many links you have on the 6 and 12 o'clock side? There is no extra links. What you are asking is "How many links were there altogether?" The answer to that is, if I am not wrong, all watches come from factory with 12 links (or 13?) in total. It depends on how many got taken out to fit the wrist of the seller.

    I bought a gold sub from watchfinder

    they supplied it with 1 link missing

    I tried to argue that they owed me a link, that the supplied watch differed from the picture of the watch when it was for sale etc. The pictured watch had the complete set of links.

    When sizing they also damaged a screw, which they did send a replacement for. But they refused to send the extra link. "they are second hand bought as seen etc".

    But thats what happens when they size it for you, they will keep one back.

    Ive actually had 2 subs from them and both times a link was missing, the steel sub also

    The only good thing I will say about this is they didnt quibble about a "missing" link when I gave the steel sub back to them after a couple of years.

    So, moral of the story, watchfinder or any other shop, check how many links there should be before you walk away, and size it yourself.

    Watchfinder policy is to size the watch to your wrist and they keep any excess links.

    Reminds me of a watch dealer that sized my 14060M a few years ago and kept 1 link, giving me back only 3. Didn't realise until a few weeks later when I read a post here detailing no. of links they come with - got on the phone and got the link back with zero argument, but no apology.

    When buying a second hand watch from whatever source, it is common sense to ask how many links are with the watch.

    My wrist is 7" (17.78cm) and I have 1 screw link left on the second smallest micro-adjust setting.

    All the way out on the micro-adjust I suppose it might be possible to remove all the links but personally I prefer the adjustability.

    Great reason not to do any business with them. You theoretically paid for all of it, didn't you?
