At people it call legs.

Between the lugs is where you put your bracelet.

Some people have steel between their lugs and some have gold. Others have both. It all depends on preference and to some extent maybe your age. And make sure to watch out for stretch.

As far as having it polished or brushed, well that is a personal decision made between you and your watch.

Lugs are are the parts of the case where you attach the bracelet. A watch case has four lugs.

The lugs of most of the NEW Rolex watches are now POLISHED instead of having a diagonal satination (fines "lines"). Examples are the DJ, DD, Milgauss, New AK, Perpetual and Date, Daytona.

Also, the new lugs are BROADER than the old style lugs.

The new GMT II has not got polished lugs, though, but the satination of its lugs has been slightly altered so the the "lines" in the satination go vertically down (following the case) instead of going diagonally as before.

Here are some pics of the differences:

ORDINARY lugs (DJ 16200):


POLISHED lugs (DJ 116200):


Old style lugs (not broad), here on the old GMT:


NEW style lugs (BROAD) with horizontal satination, GMT IIc:

.
Lugs: (noun) i.e., "Knuckledraggers", see also: "Oafs", "Louts", etc.
