What Year Is Your Rolex?

The newer Rolex watch production year can be found on the warranty card. The older model can be identified by the serial number. In order to find your Rolex serial number, look on the side of the case between the lugs. These will be found behind the bracelet by the 6 o’clock area. By noting what this 4-7 digit number is that’s engraved on every watch by Rolex, it can be determined what the production date is.

2020 Rolex Price Book

These numbers seem to show that Rolex is taking 2020 as an opportunity to continue its strategy of creating a more premium image, and with continuing strong sales numbers relative to its main competitors, it seems unlikely that these price increases will slow that strategy down. As of January 1, 2020, the world’s most famous luxury brand has increased U.S. retail prices for the vast majority of Rolex watches.
