Where is Rolex Serial Number?

If your Rolex has been produced before 2006 (more or less, the exact year depends by the reference) you can find the Rolex Serial Number inside the lugs at 6'o clock. To see this code, you have to remove the bracelet (if you are not able to do it, ask to a watchmaker):
Example of where is Rolex Serial Number
Here it is where you can find Rolex Serial Number in a watch produced before 2006
And between the lugs you'll find something like this:

In the latest Rolex, you can see the Rolex Serial Number inside the rehaut, at 6'o clock. Remove the bracelet is no longer required.

Take a look at the space between the dial and the sapphire glass (it is called rehaut) at 6'o clock you can find the serial number engraved in. As the picture here below:
