    Casio 35th Anniversary DW5035 Difference

    I had been bitten by the "square" bug and am now an addict.....

    In a short span of less than a month. I had owned the G-5600E and the GW-B5600

    I saw the 35th Anniversary DW5035 the other day and fell in love with the pixelated dial...

    When I learnt more about it, I realised that there are actually two models of the same watch : DW-5035D-1BJR and DW-5035D-1BDR.

    Does anyone know what's the difference between the BJR and BDR model ?

    Any difference in price ?

    Thanks

    No difference. One is for Japanese market, the other I think for US market. Should be the exact same watch.

    My understanding has been that the differences will be limited to the packing materials. Thing are like the format of the date, which you might expect to vary regionally, do not.

    I have a DW-5035, and I enjoy the “pixelated” sunburst effect so much that I eventually had to pick up its underappreciated sibling, the DW-5735. The effect is achieved with a thin mital grille between the LCD and the EL panel, but *how* the metal causes the effect still mystifies me.

    Before I started wearing it, I wondered if the effect would detract from overall readability, but it actually enhance readability in low-light conditions, brecause the grille is “collecting” light at the bright part of the sunburst, and you can angle the watch to move the sunburst around.

    It's a great watch. I bought it once, returned it, then rebought it. Also check out the DW-5735D which shape reference Kikuo Ibe's earliest "ball" prototypes for the first G Shock. You can get the 5735 for a good price.Name:  IMG_20190602_110210.jpg

    I wonder if that’s a reproduction of the original “medium” sample. It looks like it has the “Foxfire” label, which I believe belongs to the Japanese 5600e line.

    I will tell you exactly what is different.
    The hang tag is in Japanese and says the 1jf suffix.
    The instruction booklet. The Japan one is in Japanese and like a rolled up newspaper in a cellophane wrapper. The international version has a booklet with instructions in several langauges.
