    Newbie question about dating watches

    Are there guides for how to date watches of different brands? I'm very fortunate in that my first vintage watch is a Bulova and they're stamped with date codes. What systems do other makes use that can help us in dating their watches?

    It would probably be easier to list those watches/companies that do not have a system for dating their watches.

    Some watches have had a system discovered or extrapolated by experts/researchers/specialists, some of whom grace this very site with their presence!

    In addition to whats been said
    We do have dating systems for a good number of the better known brands, especially American manufacturers and many top SWISS companies, its the lesser known Swiss companies that are the issue.
