Rolex Model Numbering

Rolex has used standard model designations for many years. The company originally specified watches using a 4-digit model number before switching to 5 digits. Around 2000, Rolex added another leading digit (typically a 1) to the model numbers.

Rolex model numbers usually take the following format: xXXxBM

  • xXXx = Model code (2-4 digits)
  • B = Bezel type
  • M = Case material
