At the beginning of the 20th century, the first wrist watches were worn on a leather strap, but mankind soon realized how practical and comfortable metal bracelets are. Rolex was one of the first to think about their appearance in the 1930s - and to this day its three-row Rolex Oyster bracelet remains a classic of the genre.
Other brands have also branded their metal bracelets. Men, as a rule, are addressed to those that consist of large links, three-row, or more flexible, of small elements - up to the bracelet "Milanese" weaving, which resembles dense chain mail.

The design of women's bracelets, especially for watches from jewelry and fashion brands, is much more intricate and inventive. Chanel echoes the tweed texture in gold, while the tight-fitting gold links are carefully engraved with Palace Décor by Piaget.
