Rolex Serial Number guide

Serial numbers can be an invaluable tool for determining the year a watch was produced. They can help with genuineness, further help us to accertain market values and sometimes it's just nice to know the year your watch was made!

All Rolex watches hold their serial numbers on their case. To find your Rolex serial number, it requires the removal of the bracelet. On the 6 o'clock side there will be, depending on production year, a number, possibly preceeded by a letter, engraved on every watch by Rolex. Around the year 2004, Rolex started to move the location of the engraved serial to the inner rehaut, the interal ring between the crystal and dial, and by the year 2008 all Rolex Oyster models had their serial numbers located here.
