Of all the Swiss watchmakers, Rolex is the most reticent to give in to contemporary watch trends. Their 2017 Cosmograph Daytona, equipped with an Oysterflex watchband, proves that they see rubber straps as a watchmaking material that will stand the test of time. At Baselworld 2017, their display features Daytonas in yellow, white and Everose gold equipped with their coveted Cerachrom bezel and rubber Oysterflex strap.
2017 Yellow Gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona on Oysterflex Rubber Strap
The Oysterflex bracelet was developed and patented by Rolex to offer the flexibility and aesthetic of an elastomer strap with the reliability and robustness of a metal bracelet. An elastic metal blade is at its core, which is then moulded with a high-performance black elastomer. It is then fitted with an 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold Oysterlock safety clasp with an Easylink rapid extension system.

Rolex just released images of their new 2017 model configurations during the Baselworld trade show in Switzerland. Among them is the 50th Anniversary version of the Sea-Dweller, originally introduced in 1967. The 904l stainless steel case is now 43mm in diameter, just 1mm smaller than the Deepsea.

The Helium Escape Valve is visible on the side of the sizable case in the above photo. While the case has gone through aesthetic changes, the depth rating remains at 1,220 meters. It is fitted with an Oyster bracelet and Oysterlock clasp. The clasp features the Glidelock extension system that extends the length by 20mm in increments of 2mm and a Fliplock extension adding 26mm to its length.

Waterproof to a depth of 12,800 feet, Rolex’s Deepsea model lives up to its name. The capabilities of this 44 mm diver’s watch are the result of years of research and experimentation. A unidirectional 60-minute graduated Cerachrom bezel times dives while a helium escape valve ensures that tiny molecules don’t affect its case during decompression.
The ultimate diver’s watch deserves the ultimate rubber strap. In the Rubber B e-Boutique we have a selection of vulcanized rubber straps that are micro-calibrated to fit the Deepsea flawlessly. Made in Switzerland using only the finest materials available, our straps are built to last. Our attention to detail includes the selection of colors and styles that compliment the timepieces for which our straps are designed.
In the photo above, the Deepsea is fitted with an Arctic White strap with a flared tang buckle. The design features of the strap accentuate the lines of the lugs and bolster its luxury aesthetic. This white watchband offers a cool tonality that offsets the black dial and bezel. We also offer a Jet Black dual-colored VulChromatic strap with an Arctic White stripe down the middle that makes for an interesting black and white configuration.
Lovers of color would be happy with a Mandarin Orange or Pacific Blue rubber strap. One of our most recent additions to the VulChromatic collection for the Deepsea features a Lime Green stripe down the center of a Jet Black strap that picks up the green lettering on the D-Blue Dial configuration.

Two-Tone Yellow Rolesor Rolex Datejust 41 on Jubilee Bracelet
Their most classic wristwatch model, the Rolex Datejust is instantly recognizable in its yellow Rolesor configuration. The combination of stainless steel and 18 carat gold gives the 126333 reference shown above a 20th century aesthetic with a 41 mm case size that makes it equally contemporary.
The Datejust offers many of the iconic features that have made Rolex one of the most popular watchmakers in the world. The champagne dial has an aperture at 3 o’clock that is magnified by a Cyclops lens. The yellow gold bezel is fluted, refracting light with its unique texture and angles. A Twinlock winding crown seals the Oyster case, making it waterproof up to 100 meters.
This quintessential Rolex model is bolstered by a 5-piece Jubilee bracelet in steel with yellow gold center links. Its Oysterclasp folding clasp features an Easylink 5 mm comfort extension link. Its functions and 70 hour power reserve are delivered by a 3235 self-winding mechanical movement executed entirely in-house by the watchmaker.
The Datejust’s precision and classical elegance make it just as desirable today as it was in 1945, the year the model was introduced. The 126333 two-tone configuration shown above retails for $12,700. For more information on this Rolex watch model, visit the watchmaker’s official website at rolex.com.

A flawless fit to the watch case is achieved through micro-calibration using ‘blocked integration’ engineering. What results is a fully integrated rubber strap configuration that provides a secure and comfortable fit. Due to the caliber of materials we use, our straps do not lose their color or shape over time like other straps available today. This is because we invest in quality control measures that ensure that every strap that is shipped to a customer adheres to our high standards.
