Tudor serial numbers are more complicated to accurately date than Rolex Serial Numbers as there is far less information on Tudor serial numbers available. That said, with a little bit of time and effort, I have put together a Tudor serial number database below to help you date your Tudor watch to the nearest year.

The watch cases were supplied by Rolex until recently and so the serial number of Tudor watches are found in the same place as they would be found on a Rolex watch – between the lugs at the 6 o’clock position engraved into the case behind where the bracelet fits.

It will never be 100% accurate, but it should give you a very good idea of the year of your Tudor and at worst I would hope you may be one year out. It should also assist you if you are considering buying a Tudor watch as to whether it is being represented correctly.
