I understand the new bracelet design is considered better than
the old (such as on the PAM 51) and wondered if anyone had any
problems with the old one in the first place. Why is it considered
...just different. I actually like the new bracelet, though most prefer the old style it seems. I think the new bracelet has a nice clean look about it, sort of an Oyster bracelet on steroids. I think both styles are great and compliment each other in the same way the Oyster and Jubilee bracelets compliment each other. There was nothing wrong with the old style and as with everything, preference is a matter of personal taste.
