Harrah's Inc., owner of the WSOP brand, have picked up watch and jewellery designer Steve Soffa to create a new model or bracelets for this year's tournament series.

These bracelets will be awarded to the WSOP 2010 winners which will take place at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. In an interview with Poker News Daily, Soffa revealed how he got to design the WSOP bracelets: "I was privileged enough to meet with Ty Stewart and become their official jeweller worldwide."

Last year's Main Event winner Joe Cada wore a watch designed by Mr. Soffa, who is also a keen poker player. "I'm extremely passionate not only about the game but also about what I do and I want to bring to the table my artistry into the tradition of the game," he added.

The World Series of Poker will start on the 28th of May with the $500 casino employee event. The $10,000 Main Event will start on the 5th of July, with the final table taking place in November, but the exact day is yet to be announced. The full schedule can be found here.

    it looks more suited for 3rd place not 1st place.
    1st place colour is gold and it should stay like that always

    Kinda looks like my grandma's watch. EPT trophies are fancier. Plus, we wouldn't see players like Hellmuth wearing their bracelets all the time, like they are not confident of how good they are. Just sayin', if you are good, you don't need to wear a bracelet. Like Johnny Chan said: I don't wear them, people already know I'm the best.

    I think that WSOP is thinking in the players' interest. If you win one of these, you're famous. However, if you are famous, you might be in danger of getting robbed, right? Not anymore.

    Given the fact that the new bracelets look like they cost $12 and were made by a guy named Pablo, there are way lower chances of it getting stolen.

    Warning: having such a bracelet does not protect you from actual robbery.

    that's not the new bracelet design. It's obviously at an early stage of production, before they apply gold/platinum/whatever coatings and whatnot.
    Actually, depending on how they finish it, it might look better than the old ones. Well, it probably will anyway, those Corum ones were really bad imo
