No green sticker on back?

New V serial GMT Ceramic, no green sticker on back, is that new?

Also on bracelet the only thing I can find is PJ6, Charles at TZ says that is a June 2008 production date

Serial is V2 _ _ _ _ _ and i had to wait for the AD to get it from Rolex, seems the seria would be later than that but who knows

There should be a sticker on the caseback, but only a small portion of it, along the edge, will be green. There's nothing?

Sometimes ADs remove all stickers prior to delivery. It's a weird practive.

he did take all the plastic off, but if it comes now with simply a clear plastic deal then yes he took that off

Hmm, maybe it depends on the model. The Sub Date I recieved about two weeks ago had the sticker I described above.

There's a barcode on the side of the case that replaces the sticker.

No, he's referring to a sticker on the side of the case with a small bar code on it, presumably for internal Rolex use.

You'll see the sticker here on the left hand side (not my photo, credit goes to Fred_Tan)



On yours, it would be where the HEV is on this Sea Dweller.

As for the Bracelet Code, I have a "PJ5" on my SS GMT IIc purchased from an AD in July this year. Best I can figure is that like all manufactures they make a run of an item in great quantity ( if it fits more than one type). When the supply is exhausted they do another run and recode it. It makes sense that bracelet and or clasps would be produced and stored in greater quantity than the watches. I have a V serial also that was one of three the AD had on order when I paid for it.

My Sub didn't have the barcode sticker either, so I wouldn't sweat it. It's probably as you said, your AD has the practice of removing them before shipment. I've heard of this being done before. I'd just give them a holler to confirm it, it it's really bugging you.

I pull all the stickers of my watches when I get them anyway. Enjoy your new piece man! It's sweet!
