    I have asked the "Brass" at the NAWCC for years to help me set up something... nothing ever happens.

    What better forum than this one to help research serial numbers and reference numbers on Rolex than this one? Here is the idea:

    There have been other sites that have attempted this. With a modicum of success. But this one will be different. My thought is that you share with 5 pics ONLY (don't overwhelm our site) with simple macro dial, serial, reference number between lugs AND on caseback and pic of movement calibre. mentiono if gold or steel. If this goes well, we will make a sticky out of it (I do not lot like tickets...lol) and we should be able to extrapolate some good research that will upend the "Echo-chamber" BS (sorry) put forth on the net by specuators and dealers.

    Thoughts?

    Like this? There don't seem to be any numbers between the lugs. The watch repair guy said the movement is an 630 NA. It's stainless.

    Hi Jeff, as much as I like the idea, I can’t help thinking that having a database of individual watches identified with serial numbers would also be a great resource for the counterfeiters of the world?
