Secret Codes in Rolex

On most modern Rolex Guarantee/Warranty papers you will find two perforated numbers. One of these numbers is the watch's serial number and is located (on UK Guarantee papers) in the top right hand corner.

However, there is a second perforated number which is made up of three digits. This 3-digit number corresponds to the country in which the watch was first sold.

Below you will find a list of Codes and their matching countries. Of course if all the details are filled in your warranty paper will probably already know.

010 - Switzerland
012 - Switzerland
100 - Germany
110 - France
114 - Nice
120 - Austria
130 - Belgium
134 - Netherlands
138 - Netherlands
150 - Spain
160 - England
170 - Italy
200 - Italy
201 - Malta
202 - Egypt
208 - Greece
265 - Sweden
283 - Finland
400 - Hong Kong
413 - Korea
430 - Singapore
431 - Malaysia
440 - Taiwan
500 - India
505 - Parkistan
527 - Middle East
532 - Saudi Arabia
538 - Oman
548 - Israel
680 - South Africa
700 - Canada
710 - USA
720 - Mexico
741 - Bahamas
752 - Jamaica
767 - Grand Cayman
768 - Panama
780 - Brazil
781 - Chile
790 - Argentina
810 - Australia
818 - Philippines
828 - China
842 - New Zealand
873 - Guam
888 - Hong Kong (2 entries)
900 - Japan

Another code is evident on guarantee/warranty papers for watches sold in the US. On the back of these documents are some letters in red ink.

By applying the following code you can work out when the watch was shipped from Rolex US to the dealer.

R - 1
O - 2
L - 3
E - 4
X - 5
W - 6
A - 7
T - 8
C - 9
H - 0

So the code "A OXCR" = 7 2591 = July 25, 1991
