How to Date Your Rolex

Rolex has issued unique serial numbers for each watch produced since 1927. These serial numbers can be used to approximate the year of production for each individual watch. Below is a list of serial numbers by year that can be used as a tool to find the approximate age of your watch.

*All numbers are approximate, as number series did not begin and end in correlation with the beginning and end of each year.

*This list is only applicable to Rolex Oyster-cased watches.

* Roman Numeral Dating System: In 1958, Rolex began issuing serial numbers along with a roman numeral code reflecting the quarter and year in which the watch was produced.

The serial numbers during this period would look something like: 23299 II54. Some of the watches, especially those produced around 1959, included the roman number reflecting the quarter and all four digits of the year, ie: 380679 IV1959.
