When you buy a Rolex watch it will likely be a treasured investment. If your Rolex is ever lost or stolen you might be wondering what your options are.
If you own a genuine Rolex there will be a unique serial number specific to the watch. If your watch is pre 2005 this number will be engraved on the case between the lugs. 2005 and later watches will have the serial number engraved on the inner bezel (dial rehault).
To avoid buying a stolen Rolex it is important to buy from a reputable dealer. If you believe your Rolex is stolen check the serial number with Rolex headquarters and ask them to search their lost or stolen database.
A Rolex watch has two numbers associated with it. One is the reference number and the other is the serial number. There is no GPS on a Rolex.
