What are Rolex Serial Numbers?

Since the 1920s, Rolex has engraved their watches with unique serial numbers to help owners track the production year of their timepiece. When determining the current market value of a pre-owned Rolex, this serial number is invaluable. If you've ever asked yourself how to spot the difference between a real and a fake Rolex, checking the Rolex serial number is something you can do.

Where is my Rolex serial code?

Rolex serial numbers are 4-8 digit codes found between the “lugs” in the side of the case at the 6 o'clock position. In 2005, Rolex changed how the serial number is displayed, moving the code to the inner watch rim, or the “rehaut”, making it more difficult to create a fraudulent copy. In the past, Rolex serial numbers were easily attributed to the year of manufacture, however in 2010, Rolex began creating randomised, unique identifying numbers instead of a sequential numbering system. Unsurprisingly, this makes the task of matching up the codes to production years more challenging but it does help when determining whether a pre-owned Rolex watch is genuine!
