So, how can someone tell when a Rolex watch was manufactured...well, for pre 8/10 watches, you can use the following info to discover the year:


Locating your Rolex serial and model number

The serial number of your watch is engraved on the case at the 6 o'clock end between the lugs. You will need to remove the bracelet/strap to see it. The model reference is engraved in the same place at the 12 o'clock end. As of August 2010, serial numbers for new Rolex watches are randomized, making it impossible to use the numbers for dating purposes.
