The Vintage Rolex Case Number Project

 

Rolex serial or case numbers have long been a source of frustration, amazement and amusement to collectors trying to determine the age of their vintage Rolex. In the '50s Rolex came to the end of the six digit run (999,999) and rather than add a seventh digit, they, in their wisdom, decided to simply reuse existing numbers starting at 10,000.

During this period, Rolex ameliorated the problem somewhat by stamping the inside of the caseback with the quarter and year of manufacture. A watch made in the third quarter of 1957 was stamped III57 for example. This has it's own problems as over the years some watches have had their casebacks changed or replaced further confusing the issue.

Our intention is to have the most accurate and extensive repository of Rolex case numbers available. The internet has made research possible that has never been available before. Web sites, eBay and collectors are among the sources we can now use to collect numbers with supportive information to ensure the accuracy of what we include in this project.

This is an ongoing project and will be updated as new information is provided. Richard Ong (RichardNYC on the forum) is the editor of this project and has done a fantastic job collecting the information you see here. Richard will coordinate with other contributors who choose to participate in the project.

The Project is subject to US and international copyright laws*. We have credited sources whenever possible. We have included the chart, with permission, compiled by James M. Dowling and Jeffery P. Hess that is included in their excellent Rolex biography; The Best of Time, Rolex Watches: An Unauthorized History. James M. Dowling, Jeffrey P. Hess. A link to Amazon is provided below and we highly recommend you add this book to your library. The Dowling/Hess chart is acknowledged as the most accurate currently available and is reproduced in it's entirety below.

If you would like to help with the Project, please contact Richard Ong with your information. Credit will be given to contributors.

Please submit your information in the same format as the database column headings.

It is okay if all information is not known, such as inside the case if one has not seen it opened. It is also okay to update at a later date.

Thanks in advance for all of your contributions!

He had one similar to it and he had talked to some people at RWC in Geneva about it and they said the cases were probably made in advance and the movements were cased when needed, so the watch was put together after the 1570 was introduced.
