Rolex Country Codes: a Complete Guide

Rolex Country Codes: a Complete Guide

Did you know that on the certificate/warranty card of your Rolex watch, there is a three-digit number? Did you know that Rolex uses country codes to refer to a specific country?

Rolex country codes consist of three digits and refer to the country of which the watch was originally sent to from the factory. In other words, the country that the authorized Rolex retailer is was sent to is in. There are a few reasons why Rolex uses this system, but when it comes to pre-owned watches, this number system can come in particularly handy as it allows you to know from which country the watch was originally purchased.

In this article, we will list all the Rolex country codes and the respective country, so you can easily identify from which country your watch was originally sold from.

Rolex country codes

Now, let’s first sort out the fact that no matter which country code your watch has, it originally comes from Rolex’s factory in Switzerland. Make no mistake here. The country code simply tells you which country the authorized retailer the watch was originally sent to is in.

Where can you find the country code for your watch?

The country code of your watch can only be found on its warranty paper/warranty card. If you don’t have the accompanying warranty card or paper, you will not be able to tell the country code of your watch in any way.

However, if you do have your warranty paper or card, identifying your Rolex country code is very easy.

Older Rolex watches (up until 2006) have the guarantee/warranty in the form of a paper, as seen in the image below. If you have an older Rolex watch with guarantee paper, you can find the country code in the top left corner:

The country code is punched in the paper.

If you have a Rolex watch from 2006 and onwards, your watch will have been accompanied by the new warranty which comes in the form of a credit-card style plastic card as seen on the image below:

The country code on the newest warranty cards can be found on the backside of the card in the top right corner:

There are two types of plastic warranty cards from Rolex, but, generally speaking, if your Rolex watch comes with a red tag, it will come with the first generation plastic card which was originally released before Rolex introduced its five-year warranty.

On these cards, you can find out the Rolex Country Code in the field “N° client” like the following picture:

Do note that there are some ”special” country codes with a star, and this refers to the Rolex headquarters itself. This is only used for direct purchases by private customers, and naturally, very rare. Furthermore, there are also other special country codes that have been used throughout history which you can find in the list below.

How important is the Rolex country codes?

In practice, the Rolex country code of your watch is not important at all. Any watch, no matter from which country it was originally sold, will come with the respective warranty, as long as the card has been properly filled out by the authorized retailer, which all warranties should have. However, some people think the Rolex land code (country code) is very important, and thus only want to buy watches that have a specific land code, for example, their own country, even when buying pre-owned.
