  1. This is a wonderful Rolex innovation that I often replica watches sale use. Essentially, it allows the bracelet to grow or shrink by 5mm in a few seconds by simply opening the clasp and pulling on one end to release the easy link, or folding it to hide it. The whole thing works simply and brilliantly. The folding clasp on the Rolex Milgauss replica watches sale is one that can create some debates. Unlike the Oyster Flip Lock clasp that is found on the GMT Master replica watches sale II, this one does not have a folding lock and uses a loose bit that you pull with fingers (or nail) or push to create a lock. That lever-like bit, even when closed, seems to be dangling and does not appear to be securely locked, while the rest of the clasp does replica watches sale lock quite nicely. At first, I did not appreciate this bracelet style, since the dangling part of the bracelet replica watches seemed to swivel a bit… However, I have to come to appreciate the fact that it is a lot easier to open and swiss replica watches close this bracelet than the Oyster Flip Lock on the GMT Master II.
