18k white gold with original Rolex 18k white gold Oyster 'Flex' (Rivet) Bracelet
Question" When was the last time you saw an 18k white gold Oyster Flex Rivet Style Bracelet on a Rolex
Answer: Most likely, never! Flex Style Oyster bracelets (with rivets, not screws) were made in very limited quantities in the 1960's and almost always in stainless steel. They are extremely rare for the simple fact that due to their construction and materials at the time, they did not withstand the test of time very well and there only handful of pristine tight and 100% original examples. Even more rare is to find a pristine and tight Yellow Gold Oyster Flex Rivet Bracelet on a yellow gold Datejust. But even more rare still is to find an original 18k White Gold Oyster Perpetual Datejust with an 18k white gold Oyster Flex Rivet Bracelet in pristine and original condition!!!

‘These mid-size Rolex watches make some of the most popular models among women. Hot sellers in the stainless steel versions, they hardly ever come in gold, especially associated to an Oyster band instead of the more common President. Nothing personal against the President, but the charm of a tight Oyster band is, to my opinion, unbeatable. Here is a very rare 18k white gold example, with a gorgeous Rhodium Stick dial. Condition is impeccable.’
