The serial number on any Rolex watch enables you to estimate the approximate date of manufacture.On the majority Rolex watches the serial number is engraved between the case lugs at 6 o’clock just behind the bracelet end links.Still many people quote them and so wrongly date their watch.I have therefore compiled a more accurate Rolex serial number database below, for everyone to use, from utilising highly accurate and trusted data.It is important to note however that final assembly, sale and delivery of the completed watch may be some time later.For example a case or case back assembled in 1967, may not have been used on a completed watch until 1970 or sold via a retailer until later still.If your Rolex's serial number falls between 100,000 and 999,999, you'll therefore need to take it to a trusted jeweller to have it accurately dated, although our tool will be able to tell you its two possible production dates.If your watch was made before 2005, you'll find its serial number engraved on the case between the lugs (the 'horns' that attach to the bracelet) of the 6 o'clock side. If you're not confident about doing this yourself, take it to a jeweller.
In 2008, the company switched to only engraving the serial number on the inner bezel, as this is much harder to counterfeit.
The Rolex serial no database below should give you a reasonably accurate idea of the year of your Rolex.
Remember that the year of Rolex manufacture does not necessarily mean that was the year of sale, so Rolex guarantee papers or bracelets could be dated later, but not earlier.
These did not follow alphabetically, nor did they start on the 1st of January each year – instead starting at different points within a year once all the serials had been used.
A letter prefix was followed by 6 digits – so again giving 1m serials per letter and in the order below.The Rolex serial number of a watch is stamped between the lower lugs, where the bracelet is held in place.
