Rolex Clasp Codes Dating Manufacture Year

Many Rolex watches have a clasp code located inside the clasp hinge. This code is based on the month and year the clasp was manufactured. After inspecting the clasp you will see 1 or 2 letters followed by a number. The letter corresponds with a year and the number signifies a month. For example we see that a bracelet stamped G5 was manufactured in May 1982. A service replacement bracelet would have an additional “S” stamped along with the year. Note that the clasp may be 1 year off as some parts were produced with a time lag to each other.
