Although there is no law or standard uniform definition for what can be considered vintage, a commonly accepted rule is that a vintage Rolex is a watch that is at least 25 to 30 years old. Consequently, for something to be considered antique, many individuals maintain that it must be at least 100 years old.

There are a number of ways to tell whether or not a Rolex is real; however, what to look for when authenticating a Rolex watch will differ slightly from one reference to the next. Counterfeit watches are getting increasingly convincing, and sometimes the only way to confirm that a Rolex is genuine is by opening it up and inspecting it with the help of high-powered magnification.
