Rolex Jubilee Bracelet Variations & How To Determine Their Era

Posted on April 17th, 2017 by JoeG

Rolex watches are some of the world’s most revered timepieces and worn & collected by many since the early 1900’s. There are many styles & models available; some vintage that can be obtained for as little as a few hundred dollars and some vintage models can exceed $250,000.00, and the ever changing modern versions.


Rolex Watches are worn by sport figures, movie stars, musicians, heads of countries, and by any who may want a quality precision timepiece. There are various models of Rolex and styles and bands as well, like Jubilee, Oyster, President band. When looking at a Pre-owned Rolex one of the quickest ways to determine the era is to look at the band. In these examples I demonstrate the Jubilee Band from the 1960’s “C” shape, 1970’s “Oval” shape and into the modern era “D” shape.


Of course the best way to determine era is to remove the band and see the serial number on the side of the case to determine the exact year/date , but on a first glance the band can give you a good idea of the era 1960’s. 1970’s, 1980’s to date.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
