This is the new warranty card released around early 2020 till current date. Most 41mm Submariners come with the new warranty cards.
The warranty card below is the older version, a very small percentage of 41mm Submariners comes with the old warranty cards (Limited to a few countries such as Canada, the Middle East, etc).
Check your serial number and make sure it matches your watch.
Where is your serial number located on your watch?
You can find the serial number at the 6 o’clock position along the inner bezel under the crystal.

You’ll likely receive the new warranty card holder if your watch is dated at the end of 2020 – current, it is common to get the old warranty card holder during the initial change.
Below is the version before the new warranty card holder was released.
Rolex 41mm Submariner Booklet
For the 41mm Submariner, do check that you received the correct booklet. Flip to page 5 and make sure you have the one with the 41mm.
Rolex Green Tag
Rolex White Tag
At the back of the white tag, check the serial number and the model number. The size of the box used for your watch is indicated too. (refer to the table above in the Box section for more details) Do note that you may not receive a white tag as some authorised dealers keep them, it does not hurt the value of the watch.
The bezel protector used for all 41mm Submariner Ref. 12661X is N308. Do note that you may not receive the bezel protector as most authorised dealers keep them, it does not hurt the value of the watch.
Ensure that you have the correct number of links when it comes to getting a watch in the secondary market. The guide below shows you how to count the number of links that should come with your 41mm submariner.

There should be a total of 11.5 links (excluding the end links).
At the 6 o’clock bracelet of the watch, there will be 5 links.
At the 12 o’clock bracelet of the watch, there will be 6.5 links.
