SA, when following the brand Rolex, means Société Anonyme. That is a French term for a public limited company.

PP almost always means PayPal.

I've also seen SA used in "Rolex SA", which means the piece originated in South America !!

Indeed, there's some very nice gold (YG) bracelets from South American sourcing, but it's my understanding that they are very much still considered "Rolex", and authentic!

Sorry, I don't know more than that, but I'll bet we're about to be "edumacated".... as my mother-in-law often says . . . .
