Interesting finding (No serial number between lugs)
Is it true that Rolex does not engrave serial numbers between the inside of the lugs of newer models (6pm position), and only shows the serial number via the rehaut ring?
I bought my airking via the grey market, and the serial number and receipts were given, which match the rehaut rings serial number. Yes I paid much higher than retail for this.
Opening up the bracelet, the bracelet shows the bracelet reference number of 71200 and some Rolex coronet.
Between the 12 O’clock lugs are written ORIG. ROLEX DESIGN (Model Reference Number). Between the 6 O’clock lugs are: Stainless Steel
I’ve read this somewhere online, and was curious, and opened my airking to see the same findings. Here are the pictures:
Being a watch nut myself, I am into details and will be mortified if mine is a fake. I will get it checked at the Rolex service centre shortly.
