Rolex serial numbers

The Rolex serial numbers are found between the lugs on the side of the case at the 6 o’clock side, behind the bracelet.

This 4-8 digit number is engraved by Rolex on every watch and it can be used to determine its production date.

Beginning in 2005, the Company started to also engrave the serial number on the inside flange between the dial and the crystal.

Starting in 2008, the Company began to only engrave the numbers on the rehaut.

These sets of numbers, for example 28000 for the year 1926 or Z000001 for year 2006,
are inscribed by machine on the side of the watch case between the lugs at 6 o’clock.

It is very helpful to know the official Rolex production date to help us determine its market value.

* During 1976 Rolex retained cases to be used as future ‘Service Cases’ and have issued these, so far, from late 4.38m cases to 4.8m cases.

When Rolex reached their 10,000,000’th serial number in 1987 they switched to letter prefix based serials starting with ‘R’.

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.

Letter Prefix Year Started
R 1987
L 1988
E 1990
X 1991
N 1992
C 1993
S 1994
W 1995
T 1996
U 1997
A 1998
P 2000
K 2001
Y 2002
F 2003
D 2005
Z 2006
M 2007
V 2008
G 2010

From 2010 onwards Rolex serial numbers changed again. This time to 8 digits consisting of randomly generated numbers and letters.
