I would expect Rolex to have a record of all their watches and if you contact your nearest dealer, they should be able to help you.

I have a vintage Bulova watch that I'm trying to date: No. On face is 23 Number on back of case is 312171 I would appreciate any help.


Bulova began using a series of codes in the late 40's to date watches, look on your case for a letter followed by a number,the letter designates the decade,A=40's,L=50's,M=60's,.N=70's,P=80's,T=90's and the following number designates the year, an example would be,M4 would indicate 1964. Hope this helps,the serial numbers are used for identification purposes only

Just bought a vintage Citizen Super Crystal Date stainless steel watch. Serial No. on back is 00625090. Can you provide the approximate or exact date of production? Thank you.


We cannot tell you from the serial number what the model watch you bought is . But you can call Citizen watch 800 321 1023 extension 4234 and give them the serial and they will be able to tell you the model and year the watch was produced.

I nee to set the date. Is always back to the old date


mcdevito75 here, You may have a 2 position stem in your Timex, Slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it:'s first position, this should allow you to change the day / date without haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle. Best Bet, change the date to the date before, then go thru the 24 hours to have the date change at midnite and not 12 noon. If the date keeps falling back to previous, the date wheel maybe loose in that case you can find a small watch repair shop inyour area, but it may be cheaper to replace the watch if this is the case.

This is a tough question. Rolex has always been very secretive of manufacturing information so there is no definitive list of "born on dates" The serial number 2534788 is most likely from 1969 or 1970. The problem is that I know of no Rolex from that time period that has the small seconds hand. The off-set seconds hand was a feature of pre WW2 watches. The case number on the inside of the case back would help in identifying the movement and being able to provide more information
