Dating rolex watches serial numbers inter racial wives dating

** In 1987, rather than begin an 8 digit production serial, Rolex instead began their serials with a letter prefix such as R, then L, E & X.(ROLEX without the O) N, C, & S came out during the early to mid 1990's, W, T & U a little later.The watch cases were supplied by Rolex until recently and so the serial number of Tudor watches are found in the same place as they would be found on a Rolex watch – between the lugs at the 6 o’clock position engraved into the case behind where the bracelet fits.It will never be 100% accurate, but it should give you a very good idea of the year of your Tudor and at worst I would hope you may be one year out.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.

ABOVE: Around 2005, Rolex started engraving the Case's Serial Number into the inside edge of the case (at the 6 o'clock position, under the crystal and below the bezel), also known as the rehaut, as shown in these images, which were taken at BASELWORLD 2005, in Switzerland in early April.People are often looking for a Rolex serial number or Rolex model number database to verify their Rolex serial numbers and to work out their Rolex year of manufacture.Unfortunately many of the online Rolex serial number databases are very inaccurate, out of date and have been copied inaccurately many times.The serial number is traditionally located at 6 o'clock between the lugs and under the bracelet.In 2005, Rolex began engraving the serial number on the rehaut (French for 'flange') between the dial and the crystal as well as the 6' o'clock location.
