A PIECE OF HISTORY
Created in the United Kingdom in the late 1920s, the Bonklip bracelet was designed with a unique size-fitting feature giving it a striking allure on the wrist.
The Bonklip is often associated with the first Rolex Viceroy, Bubble Back and other watches worn by British Royal Air Force pilots. The Bonklip was manufactured at the time by the most prestigious bracelet makers, including the famous Gay Frères and JB Champion.
WHY BRING IT BACK TO LIFE
Despite its’ unique design and many functional qualities, the Bonklip bracelet nonetheless disappeared from wrists and stores for over 50 years.
