Have they been made of SS or of WG in 1969?

Does anyone know for sure?

Funny you bring this up.

I was actually at Rolex yesterday asking the same question for a 18239.

Their answer was a quote for a pair of spring bars in YG at $132.

I assume based on this answer, its No to WG sping bars.

With spring bars made of SS, of YG or of WG?

Steel for steel models..( not fitted at factory to DD, but available ar RSCs if customer does not want to spend for gold ones)..

Yellow Gold for YG and Rose Gold models...

White Gold for WG and Platinum models...

No platinum bars..
