In the same way that Rolex serial numbers allow you to date the year of your Rolex you can also date the year of your Rolex bracelet.
Rolex bracelet codes are found on the inner part of the Rolex bracelet clasp and started in the 1950′s when Rolex also began stamping the inner caseback of their watches. The only difference being that Rolex used roman numerals for the ‘quarter’ stamp in the case back and standard numerals for their ‘quarter’ bracelet stamps – so a 4th quarter watch from 1965 would be stamped IV65 in the case back but 4 65 for the bracelet and with the quarter number stamped above the year.
This method of date stamping bracelets continued, like the casebacks, until the early 70′s when it stopped.
From 1976 Rolex again started dating bracelets but this time with a letter to designate the year and number to designate the month of manufacture. So for instance, from the table below, we can denote that a bracelet stamped F7 was manufactured in July 1981. If a bracelet has an additional ‘S’ stamped along with the year and date then it is a service replacement.
More recently with SEL (solid end link) bracelets Rolex have been stamping the part number, date code and Rolex crown into the inner part of the end link and so not visible without removing the bracelet.
USA manufactured bracelets differ in their stampings to their European counterparts in that many bracelets have no date and that dated ones are month/year stamped rather than quarter/year. They are also stamped U.S.A. on the clasp to differentiate.
