The Everest Journal

by Michael DiMartini February 12, 2015 2 min read

Everest Horology Products is a premier manufacturer of exceptional watchstrap alternatives for Rolex timepieces.

While many Rolex owners love the classic look of the stainless steel band, we knew many were secretly wishing for the option of supple leather or the action-oriented durability of rubber.

The Perfect Link

The Everest link makes this all possible. This steel end link is a first of its kind to perfectly combine into one flawless connection the strap, a steel end link, a 2.0mm Rolex style spring bar and the Rolex watchcase. Our incredibly precise stainless steel end link is made to the tolerance level only achieved by true high-end Swiss watch companies.

While we are working rapidly to accommodate the rapidly increasing requests for compatibility with various Rolex models, presently, we are focusing on the Daytonas. The overwhelming number of phone and email inquiries we receive concern the Daytona models, which are arguably considered the poster child for the Rolex brand.


Just Short of a Miracle

In response to the outpouring of interest, we invested extensive amounts of effort to create watchbands for every Daytona worn today, but regrettably, we fell short of that achievement. Sometimes, the differences in the watchband-timepiece interface were excruciatingly minute, but small differences make all the difference.

In the end, due to the case dimensions of the multiple Daytona models, we were only able to get about half of the models to fit perfectly on this first release – the rest of our Daytona owners will only have to wait temporarily – for the Daytona models that fit flawlessly to our end link see the below list:


If you are the owner of one of these Daytona Rolex pieces, you’ll find many options for additional bands to suit your diverse lifestyle at


Daytona: 16500, 16520, 16523, 116500, 116520, 116523 (Any stainless or yellow gold with bracelet)


A deep thank you to our distinguished customers for the feedback you have provided. It has made a decided difference in our product development.
