Rolex Serial Numbers

Where can I locate the numbers?

Rolex serial numbers can be found engraved between the lugs at the 6 o’clock position. You will need to remove the bracelet away from the watch case to be able to view the number.  This should only be done by a experienced jeweller.

In 2005, Rolex started to engrave the case's serial number into the inside edge of the case - at the 6 o'oclock position, under the cystal.  The word "ROLEX" is then engraved continuously around the inside case.
