The watch model number is often found on the back or side of your watch, unless it is a Rolex (see below). If you see multiple numbers on your watch, you can use the process of elimination and type each number into Google Images until you see your watch.
Omega watches have unique eight-digit serial numbers that identify the pieces in Omega’s database. Vintage watches have the serial number engraved on the inside of the watch back. Modern watches have a serial number engraved on the exterior of the watch. It is also on the guarantee card that comes with the watch. Buyers should ask for the serial number, and contact Omega directly to confirm that the serial number is valid.
Having paperwork on hand is key if you need to find your Rolex watch number. Otherwise, finding it directly on your watch can be tricky. Usually, the model number is located between the watch lugs under the bracelet. So, that means that you must remove the bracelet or band. One set of links or lugs will display the watch model number, and the other will display the serial number. If you absolutely need to do this, we recommend having the bracelet removed professionally to avoid scratches.

If you’re looking for your Breitling model number, you’re in luck: they’re simple and easy to find. Every watch of theirs is marked on the case back with the model number. And on the paperwork, you’ll find the same model number with additional numbers relating to the specific design of the timepiece. There, you may also find another code with a letter followed by five digits indicating the chronometer certificate. However, that doesn’t come standard with every Breitling model.
If you’re looking for the model number on your Cartier watch, you’ll find the 4 digit code on the case back and on the paperwork. This particular number serves as a unique identifier that will designate the specific type of model. Others with the same number will have identical size and dimension, but they may differ in materials. When looking for the number on the paperwork, it will typically start with the letter “W” followed by the 4 digit number. Also, if you can’t find the number on the case, don’t worry: some earlier models or quartz models don’t have a model number on the case.
Jaeger Le-Coultre can be a little complicated, but your best bet with them is the “Q” number or case back number. Interestingly, there are three models that can identify one Jaeger LeCoultre watch. Some watches are referred to by all three, whereas some are more commonly identified by just one of these numbers. There more popular models are usually in the form XXX.X.XX or a similar format. Jaeger Le-Coultre watches also have what is known as a “Q” model number. This “Q” model number (ex. QXXXXXXX) and a case back number XXX.X.XX are searchable and should be found on the paperwork, tag, and caseback.
Patek Philippe makes things a little tricky too. On the case back, you’ll see a number, but it only has the serial number. The watch model number is actually located on the inside of the case back. Again, we recommend having the case removed professionally if you absolutely need to find this number.
Thankfully, Tag Heuer created a clear and simple system for finding and identifying the watch model. On the case back, their watch will have a serial number and a model number matching that on its paperwork. The watch model number is the one the is number on top, beginning with a letter. In some cases the watch model number can be standing alone, or right above the displayed movement on an exhibition case.
