THE BONKLIP VIDEO
Created in the U.K. in the late 1920’s, the Bonklip bracelet was designed with a unique size-adjustment feature, giving it a singular allure at the wrist.
The Bonklip is often associated with the first Rolex Viceroy, Bubble Back, and other watches worn by British Royal Air Force pilots, and was manufactured by the most prestigious bracelet makers including Gay Frères and JB Champion.
Despite its unique design and features, the Bonklip bracelet would nevertheless disappear for over 50 years.
One of the reasons is quite understandable: several manual steps are crucial in making a good Bonklip bracelet including the folding and assembling of links, as well as the polish.
Today, a complete phase of development would be necessary to revive the Bonklip bracelet. Many have already avoided embarking on this journey.
We, on the other hand, couldn’t help but take the road less traveled …
