In the spirit of Jocke and Hannes, I posted my DIY caseback removal and sapphire caseback webpage at http://members.aol.com/sheldons4/caseback.htm

I list the tools required and the steps.





If for some reason the link picture does not render, it is located at http://members.aol.com/sheldons4/images/casebackinscription.jpg [There is something with the negotiation between watchtalkforums.info and AOL as all my picts have this issue on this board]

In my discovery, I found an inscription by Rolex Service Center (RSC). Any insights on the inscription is appreciated.

The inscription reads as follows: RBH 5/07 3/008 7380

The RBH (Rolex Beverly Hills) makes sense, as does the 5/07 (date). The other numbers are greek to me.

Watchmakers inscriptions on the caseback is a long held tradition that even Rolex follows.

Comments and webpage edits appreciated.

Sheldon:

Can you repost the picture? I get the red X, and this ISP is usually good about allowing everyone's pictures to be viewed.

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing this with our community.

I've also seen RUSA write service information on the case back in ink:



My case back pictured above has some other numbers printed too. I had always assumed they were either numbers identifying the technician who performed the service, or perhaps a code for the service provided, or both.

I wouldn't be suprised if the unidentified numbers were a job card number.:)
