Double Rolex Clasp on a SS Daytona

Can anyone give me an idea on what years Rolex used the ‘double Rolex’ clasp on the SS Daytona? (Picture below). It’s my fathers watch and he is not in a health condition to go into a store to have the bracelet removed to locate the serial numbers. Does anyone have an idea of when these clasps were in use?

Sorry to hear about your dad's health. To answer your question, there should be a date code on the other side of one of the clasps. It will probably be a letter and a number.

That will date the bracelet. ASSUMING that the bracelet is original to the watch, the bracelet code will give you a close estimate to the year of the watch.

Thank you for the response and your well wishes for my father. Below is the picture of the reverse side of the clasp. I tried googling and other resources but struck out. It looks to my eye to read: MA10 steelinox 78760. Does this help? And it is all original

If your Dad recalls that is is all original, then the watch and bracelet was produced around 2005 per the Internet lists.
