Jubilee bracelets work better with dress watches IMO.

A dress watch is one which is worn on a leather strap IMO.

Not necessarily.

Thanks everyone for the input.

If you want a Jubilee bracelet, you are probably looking at an older watch.  Rolex stopped using the Jubilee on the Pepsi GMT II's quite some time ago.  You might be looking at a mid 90s GMT or older to get one on a Jubilee bracelet.  That bracelet may have quite a bit of wear and tear and to be honest, the Jubilee bracelets generally don't wear as well as an Oyster Bracelet of the same vintage.  The Jubilee will show a lot more stretch, not look as good, and may need replacing sooner.  So for those reasons, I'd only consider a GMT on an Oyster Bracelet, but its your wrist so do what you like. 

 

A Pepsi might be about 1/3 of a decent men's size ROs in good condition.  Even then you are probably limited in selection.  

 

Agreed, a Pepsi is a heck of a lot less expensive than a good men's size pre-owned automatic RO.  There is always a cost to having other hobbies and interests, or even having multiple watches.  A person could liquidate and convert their collection to just one great piece rather than having 4, or 6 or 10 watches etc.  However, some people like diversity in a watch collection and they want watches that are specific in purpose/design like a diving watch or dress watch.   Yes, if the Cayman were converted to wrist candy it would be something interesting...but as you suggested I might be in some hot water at home.  Not to mention, having some other hobbies while tough on the wallet, makes one well rounded and leads to having a diverse group of friends.  So while there are always decisions to make regarding how to spend fun money, making friends and learning about other topics (really there are topics beyond watches???...say it isn't so), can be a great experience also.  

 

Perfect, thanks! I'll have to look into the bracelet thing. Or just buy an extra super jubilee (that I didn't even know existed). Plenty of time for research. Will make a decision when I get my tax refund in June.

That's pretty much exactly what I'm after!

If you do, just keep in mind that to make the Super Jubilee to fit the watch you'll need to use the smaller spring bars.

 

 

Of course you'll also have to figure out where to source the bracelet from, but it certainly can be done.

No, but neither is the case in regards to the Jubilee bracelet (Dress Watch).

Thanks, will do! Might buy on the oyster then and see how that feels, and try to find super jubilee afterwards.

If you find that you still desire to get one later, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

 

 

Keep in mind I paid $1450 for a new one about three years ago. You will also probably have to buy it new as well, but I'm not sure how much it would cost for a new one now.
