For Rolex watches manufactured up to 2009, determining the approximate production date is easy.
The serial number is sequential from 1926 through the middle of 1987 and the production year can be looked up in a reference table.
From mid-1987 through the fall of 2009, the serial number contains an easy-to-understand date code.
It’s worth noting that in 1954 Rolex production reached 1,000,000 total units.

Because each new Rolex design is typically evolutionary rather than revolutionary, distinguishing a late model Rolex from an older watch can be difficult. A Submariner purchased in 2000 is often virtually identical to the same reference purchased a few years later.
The Rolex serial number of a watch is stamped between the lower lugs, where the bracelet is held in place.
Up until the end of 1972, the ‘quarter’ of manufacture and year could also be found stamped inside the case back (eg iii 65 for 3rd quarter of 1965).
