Batman Jubilee bracelet swap

Hey guys - my friend has the Batman on the Jubilee and has expressed interest in swapping to an Oyster to gain the more versatile use vs the dressier jubilee. I have heard that Rolex made the lugs slightly diff for the jubilee vs the oyster. Is this true? I feel like I have also seen people prove this incorrect by swapping oysters on and the jubilee onto a Sub etc.

I am also curious about this. I have a Hulk, and wondering if the Jubilee bracelet From a Batgirl will fit, or the PCL bracelet from a Daytona will fit because I don’t like the brushed finish on the Hulk, it’s too plain. Someone has to know this.

Ive seen a blog somewhere, where someone did this exact swap. Jubilee to the Hulk and vice versus. But I wanted to hear from someone more technical than a blog.

Ditto, was searching for the same post right now. Honestly, I think an all brushed, NON-PCL, Oyster would harken back to 16750/16710 territory.

From Bob's Watches: "According to his comments, he took the steel Oyster bracelet from his GMT-Master II “Batman” and combined it with the spring bars from the Jubilee bracelet of his GMT-Master II “Pepsi.” Using this method, he successfully attached the Oyster bracelet from his ref. 116710BLNR to his ref. 126710BLRO"

So assuming the spring bars follow accordingly.
