Gay Frères bracelet

Apparently, they are selling for USD800 or more depending on the model. What's the thrill for her? Are they still in bracelet biz?

Yes they are alive well. Rolex bought them and now they are assimilated.

Rolex had always used them to make their bracelets. Started the same way they did with all their other suppliers. They bought in a bit then a bit more then totally. Same happened with their case suppliers, movement and more. Rolex didn't make anything themselves originally. Gradually integrated all their suppliers whixh they had bought into around 1996 onwards.
