Solid 18k Oyster Bracelets

Recommended Posts

I’m curious to know if anyone has a source for aftermarket solid 18k Oyster bracelets. The proverbial and elusive Italian ones, etc.

 

There is next to nothing out there in my searching.

One of my dealers sells the italian 18K bracelet. However, he only stocks the regular president bracelet. He is able to buy the oyster, but he special orders it because he hardly gets a request for one.  The reg president is $3700.  Add $100 to have a gold crown added.  I have no idea what he charges for an oyster.

The ST bracelets are very high quality but they also have a high price.  With gold around $1200 troz, prices are going to be high even on lighter models from any seller. 

I was looking for a submariner style gold case a while back but they have gone from $1200 in the mid 1990s to $4k+ today, putting me out of the game. 

 

The problem with gold cases and bracelets is they usually sell new for 2 to 4 times what the gold is worth and this blows the prices up because of today's high gold prices. 

When you go to sell one the buyer wants to know how much it weighs and tries to pay scrap price or less.

Thank you gents! Much appreciated. I’m hoping the aftermarket 18k bracelet color is the same as oem 16808, 16618 etc default_smile.png

 

It’s quite difficult finding info out about aftermarket 18k parts. Definitely interesting minutiae to study, for us old
