    Thanks...

    does it have to do with the type of clasp used? Does the 0 represent a pushbutton type clasp?

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    Don't think so, I found this model specifically online with the -0 and their clasp type was " Tri-fold, Sport style, with security flip-lock." I have the same on the non-0 model. Not quite sure that they would represent the orginial clasp on the case back. I do know that this model is now discontinued and he felt that he bought the last year's edition. Perhaps the -0 means it was made in the last year they made the WJ1114? Any other ideas?

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    So,

    Does anyone have an idea why some models are suffixed with an "-0" on the case back? It appears that one of the early posts mention it and I am seeing other models having this suffix and some of the same models with out it.

    It is not mentioned on any of the posts.

    Thanks!

    Now the ultimate find would be the same type of reference for the pre 1991-92 model numbers in the 111.111 format. I say we all make a joint effort to find one.

    What say you?

    D
    What if we contact the company itself? i hope they'd accommodate us.

    BTW, am new here. found this forum while trying to find answers myself, and already i have learned a lot. still, like to all of you, the x11.111 format remains an enigma. I own a watch that says S87.806 and might be, as I am not certain, an SEL. It was given to me and the previous owner didn't know as well what it meant.

    I am looking at another watch that says WH5111 - K1. I now know, thanks to all of you, what the first six digits mean, but the 'K' and '1' marks still elude me. Pls help!!!

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    Eeeb, David and all others involved in this thread, sorry to bring up an older thread but still looking for info on the older codes xxx.xxx format,

    My observations can only relate to the 1000 series but may be the same for other models.

    See the attached pic of a catalogue scan taken from "onthedash", vintage heuer enthusiasts site with great info.

    With regards to the 1000 series,

    Example - the X determines dial colour as follows -

    980.X13 -

    0 - Black Dial
    1 - Luminescant Dial
    6 - Blue Dial
    9 - Red Dial

    the X determines

    980.0XX - the X denotes man/ladies version

    06, 13, 20, 21, 26, 31 - Mans version

    08, 15, 18, 25 - Ladies version

    These last two digits also relate to the case, whether its two-tone, black pvd or plain stainless steel.

    Also something i cant work out is the addition of a letter at the end as follows -

    XXX.XXXB, XXX.XXXN or XXX.XXXL, think its size but dont know specifically.

    Again, i have a hunch these codes may well be specific to models and may have a different meaning across the board?????.

    Hope it helps a little in solving the puzzle.

    All the best,

    James.

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    think ive worked out that a 7 means a white dial and a 13 at the end is a mens strap and a 06 at the end is a bracelet

    This post addresses only the post year 1992 code format... AA#### A third alpha was introduced somewhere around 2002 for the expanded line and new iterations of many of the series. This post does not address three alpha codes. (eg WAH1110)

    1st Character = W= Analog or C= Chornograph

    2nd Character = Series... H= 6000 A= Vinatge F1 series, D= Vintage 1500, E = Vintage 2000, , F= 4000, G= S/el Series, I=S/el Leather, K= 2k Classic, L= Kirium , M=2000 Sport Series, N= 2k Exclusive, =AH current F1 etc.... I know there a bunch of Classic Series that follow (Monaco, Carrera, Monza, etc) but those aren't in my recall anymore.

    3rd Character (1st digit) = Movement 1= Qtz 2 = Automatic 3= Manual Wind 5 = Chronometer (there is a 7, but I think that's the new wheel chronos..)

    4th Charcter (2nd digit) = Size 0= Magnum/Grande, 1 = Gents, 2=Midsize 3= Ladies, 4= Ladies Mini

    5th Character (3rd digit) = Case base material 1= Stainless Steel, 2= Steel and Gold Plate, 3=All Gold Plated, 4 = Solid 18k, 5= Steel and Solid 18k

    6th Character (4th digit) = Dial color No real standard across the models anymore.


    NOTE: I did this all quickly from recall and I did review it once, so while I believe it is pretty accurate, it may not be complete.

    The bracelets and straps had codes, but I was never really interested in those much.

    Cheers,

    David
    Great to know! Thanks buddy!

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    Thread resurrection again but this seems more relevant than me posting up a new thread.

    I'm currently looking at buying a WV211B.BA0787, that is, the one with bracelet and 'batons' instead of numbers. However I've seen several for sale which are stated as BA0787 but have numbers at 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. Is this correct or do people have the wrong model, or is there some other means of differentiating between the two types? (I think I've also seen an FC2602, which I'd guess is the same watch but on leather.)
