    I thought I’d change up the look on my white 16570 by swapping out the 78790 oyster for a 62510 jubilee w/ 502T ends. Thoughts?

    I vote for oyster. The jubilee draws attention away from the dial. Jubilee is better for a datejust with the shiney dial and bezel.

    I imagine the EII trying to speak to you, saying... "can I have the Oyster back, please..." :)

    Extremely cool and interesting with the jubilee, extremely boring with the oyster.

    BTW, from which model did you took the Jubilee to fit on the explorer?

    it’s a 62510 jubilee with 502T Endlinks, which I believe is made for five digit GMTs. It a nearly perfect fit.

    Why not. It works on my 16710 (I change week by week). I think the 5 digits take a jubilee nicely as a change of pace. Get an Everest band and leather strap to complete the looks!

    You really can’t go wrong either way, but which one is more comfortable? In my experience, a Jubilee bracelet “drapes” over my wrist bone better. Looks cool, too!

    Oyster on Expl ii is classic but I love this look too my man. I’ll share my polar I’ve had on jubilee as well:

    The Jubilee makes me really really really like the Explore II (which i'm not afraid to admit it's not my favorite Rolex). Incredible how a bracelet can change a watch.
    I Wonder if that jubilee can fit on the current model too....
