Rolex has equipped its Yacht-Master watches with the new Oysterflex strap since 2015, which was the brand’s first rubber strap. Later, it has been matched on Daytona too. Compared with the steel bracelet, the patented Oysterflex made from rubber is much lighter. When comparing with leather strap, the Oysterflex is better in waterproofness and life period is longer. See the picture please, the black ceramic bezel copy Rolex Daytona with Oysterflex strap is delicate.
However, the watch lovers who use the rubber strap all know that if the rubber material is too hard, then it will not comfortable; if it is too soft, the strap will be subsidence. In order to solve this problem, Rolex has equipped with patented buffering system and the main body has been adopted the hard rubber but the part that will touch the skin will be lighter and slimmer. It is not only more comfortable, but also not easy to slip when moving.
The sheet metal has also been set inside of the black rubber to ensure the fastness. As there is metal frame inside the strap, the Oysterflex couldn’t been cut like other rubber straps. So Rolex has provided the official data for the wearers to choose the right Oysterflex strap to match the watches. For example, if the wear’s wrist is between 159 to 170 mm, then D-F will be suitable for Daytona. But for Yacht-Master, it is different. If the wear’s wrist is between 193 and 204 mm , then F-H will be suitable for the Everose gold case knockoff Rolex watch.
