The Everest Journal

by Aleta Saeger December 07, 2020 3 min read

Overtime, Rolex bracelets tend to stretch out. The factory watch straps get beaten up and require fixing or replacing. There are a couple ways to give new life to your Rolex oyster or jubilee bracelet. Some are easier than others. We’re going to take a look at different levels of fixing your broken bracelet or strap problems.

BUY A NEW ONE

If you’re looking to quickly get a new bracelet, it may cost you a pretty penny. You can take your Rolex bracelet or Tudor bracelet to a dealer to get a replacement. This thing is you have to turn yours in because Rolex doesn’t usually let you keep your original. Rolex claims yours, and you still have to pay for the new one. You’re easily looking at a price point above a thousand dollars for this option. And, you sadly separate the original bracelet from its case. You lose out on all the nicks and stories your bracelet tells.

TAKE IT TO A JEWELER

Rolex and Tudor bracelets can stretch out over time due to wear. A great way to minimize wear on the bracelet is to wear it with an Everest watch band. Additionally, we talk about more ways to protect your Rolex in its entirety here. But, if you want to repair your Rolex bracelet (which will be a bit more cost effective than buying a new one), there are watchmakers  and repair shops that have mastered the art of repairing the bracelet. However, this is still more costly than the final way to easily repair your Rolex bracelet.

SWAP IT OUT FOR AN AFTERMARKET WATCH BAND

The fastest and easiest way to fix your Rolex or Tudor bracelet or watch strap is to swap it out for a Swiss-Made Everest watch band. Why choose Everest? We look at what some of our customers say about Everest products here. But if that doesn’t convince you, also, below Everest customers share their positive reviews of the product:

POSITIVE CUSTOMER REVIEWS

“The best of the best. Perfect amazing fit. Completely transformed the look of my GMT.” - Fred M.

It looks fantastic and very comfortable to wear.” - Javier G

“So pleased with my purchases. Great change and saves wear on the steel strap too and looks awesome.” - Ian A.

“Bought this for my Rolex Explorer II. Blows the Rubber B clasp version out of the water. Highly recommended!” - Thiara

“HUGE fan of this strap. I appreciate the quality of the Rolex bracelet, but the aesthetic is not for me. The Blue rubber strap is a great match to the watch (dimensions and robustness) and it now feels at home on my wrist in a way the metal bracelet didn't.” - Andrew L
