Oyster bracelet 97200 authenticity

So I am wanting to buy an oyster bracelet with the glidelock clasp for my 16610 as I want the on-the-fly adjustability.

Have found a couple for sale.
They are not cheap, so trying to do my research on them to avoid getting stung.
Can anyone advise how to tell if a bracelet is indeed authentic?

Also, just for reference, how much were they from RSC?

Just like buying the actual watch, buy from a reputable source and you will be fine. If it turns out to be a dud, a seller with a reputation to protect will resolve the issue.

I've been offered this brand new bracelet here and seller sent me these pictures.
Can anyone chime in with regards to its authenticity?

Just be careful, just because someone sends you photos doesnít mean that they are the actual bracelet...Iíve had spammers reach out to me via PM on here willing to sell me a 97200 bracelet but I did some digging and found it to be photos from another website...not to mention on both occasions the member had less than 10 posts. Nonetheless, make sure the person youíre interacting with is legit because ask you mentioned itís a lot of coin to be out of.

In my opinion - FAKE
A RSC will not sell an individual bracelet.
They will only replace on a watch
