The serial number, unique to each Rolex watch, is engraved upon the 6 oclock side. Every Rolex since 1987 has a serial number that uses a system of one letter preceding six digits.
Is my Rolex real serial number?
Every genuine Rolex has a unique serial number. It will be in one of two places, depending when it was made. If your watch was made before 2005, youll find its serial number engraved on the case between the lugs (the horns that attach to the bracelet) of the 6 oclock side.
How do you know if a Rolex watch is genuine?
Rolex watches include a serial number stamped between the watch lugs at the 6 oclock position. You will need to remove the bracelet in order to find this. An authentic watch will have a deeply engraved serial number. You should be able to hold it to the light and see a slight glow around the edges.
What is going on with Rolex?
There is a shortage on Rolex watches for many reasons but the main two simply are due to supply and demand. Rolex is by far the most popular watch brand so naturally demand will be high. The interesting thing with this situation is that Rolex appears to not be interested in matching supply with demand.
