Thread: Good quality Rolex sports (5 digit) bracelet alternative

    Good quality Rolex sports (5 digit) bracelet alternative

    Afternoon TZ,

    Are there any quality aftermarket Oyster-type bracelets that are designed to fit 5 digit Rolex sports models, such as the 16610?

    I've managed to nab a Fortis Cosmonaut, but Fortis no longer have any bracelets in stock so it's currently on my 16610's 93150 bracelet with 501B hollow endlinks, and fits very well. I figure aftermarket bracelets are much more common for 16610s given the Cosmonaut is hardly a hugely common model and therefore spare bracelets seem to be extremely challenging to source.

    Therefore, I'm after an aftermarket bracelet that fits a Rolex 16610, as it will therefore also fit the Cosmonaut. I will be having it refinished to suit the Fortis' matte case.

    Any pointers? Always keen for upgrades too, such as those with superior clasps and adjustment than the originals.



    Hugh

    Could look at a Ginault bracelet.
    They started out as a fake Rolex manufacturer, so I’m pretty sure they’ll fit (although do your own research on that one).

    That isn't the sort of thing I like to hear! I thought Ginault were a respected manufacturer, but perhaps that's now rather than then, back at their origins.

    This may help. Was looking for an aftermarket bracelet for my Tudor. Not 100 percent sure but think the cases match.

    Ginault was no option for me as glidelock better fits newer models I think.

    Aftermarket bracelet advice for Tudor 79090?

    Ginault Glidelock fits and works perfectly.
