116519LN White gold Daytona bracelet question

I love the white gold silver dial but not the Oysterflex bracelet.

I am getting bored of waiting for my ss Daytona (and I think it will be a looooooong wait!) and will not pay the Grey premium

As there is no option for a white gold bracelet my question is:

Has anybody fitted a fully brushed SS Oyster bracelet to this white gold watch - or is the colour variation not good?

The color variation would be horrible if it was even physically possible (I don't think it is).

I thought the colour variation may be off - but show up less brushed?

With many of the members on here always swapping bracelets/natos etc, It never occurred to me that it wouldn't be possible.

Bracelet won’t fit the WG ceramic Daytona case as it has integral end links.

There’s a WG Daytona on an oyster bracelet with the panda dial option, but it’s got the WG bezel

Rolex actually makes the white gold/silver dial with the white gold bracelet already. The difference is it doesn't have the ceramic bezel.

No (thanks seen it) - I want ceramic bezel. Sold my previous Daytona because the bezel marks far too easily for me.

You might be better just waiting for the 500 — even if you went with the 519 on the bracelet, slim chance you’d ever be able to source an OEM ceramic bezel to swap the WG one with...not that I’d personally swap WG for ceramic - but hey - I understand the ceramic desire...

I’d at least wait until Basel...I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a few more ceramic bezels on Daytona’s....

Just my .02!! Good luck!!
