If you are buying a Rolex or any type of other luxury timepiece from an independent watch dealer that you haven’t worked with before, your first question is probably going to be, “but how do I know it’s real?”
It’s a great question but perhaps not exactly the right one. I know that purchasing an item such as this online can be daunting if you are new to Rolex; and if that’s the case, even if you were able to come to the store and hold the watch in your hand — let’s be honest — you probably still wouldn’t know what to look for to determine if it is authentic or not.

Ordering a Rolex online through Watch Chest is easy! Below are the 7 steps to Rolex bliss and screenshots of the checkout process if you need any extra guidance!
1. Choosing Your Watch
As you glance around the site, you will see that Rolex is organized by model. If you click on a particular model from the home page menu you will then be able to glance through everything available. If you have a clearer picture of what color dial or price range you are looking for, you can use the menu on the left to refine your search.
A unique Rolex serial number is recorded on each watch, giving it a unique set of numerals for the purpose of identification and record keeping, much like any other product. Older models consist of only numbers but around 1987, Rolex placed a letter at the beginning of the number that would change about once a year until late 2010, which is now a random set of numbers and letters.
In the first of many in a series of addressing the most frequently asked questions heard while I worked at Watch Chest, I thought I would a write about the one heard most often: “What year is this watch?”
As a potential customer who is about to spend thousands of dollars with a company, you have every right to ask any question you want. Even after being around this industry for many years, I would still ask that question if I were buying a pre-owned Rolex or other luxury timepiece from someone. However, there is a skewed amount of emphasis that is placed upon the age of a Rolex, when an entirely different aspect should have precedence when you make your selection.
