    Confused by my...

    ...Mudman

    Good day all


    Just took delivery of the limited edition mudman (GW 9300k 3jr). Interestingly I searched the my g shock achieves and there isn’t a jr listed, but there are a whole bunch of other ones.

    But what I found really odd is that when I compared the bar code on the watch I received to this random photo (see below) that I found on the internet they both have exactly the same digits. The tag was attached to the longer watch strap rather than through the buckle as is normally the case.

    Oh ye, and the watch wasn’t in the little plastic bag, but the bag was folded up in the box.


    This is why I don’t like ordering through e-bay. It just makes me more anxious.

    Wouldn't you expect the bar code digits to indicate the SKU (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKU)? And that should be the same for the same model, yes? So....

    AFAIK bar codes are for the model, not specifically issued for each watch produced.

    Maybe I'm not understanding, but it shows up on Amazon and other places.

    OK, that’s helped me understand it better. See that’s the beauty of forums that easily confused people, such as myself, can be put back on track.

    That did cross my mind when I saw that it wasn’t in its plastic bag. And then I saw that the bottom plastic bit wasn’t completely flush, in places, against the stainless steel and had a tiny gaps between the two. I wonder if all mudmans are like this? But, the last point might be due more to some sort of neuroticism in which case I’m grateful to you for helping me work through it.

    I’ll get some pictures either tonight. Or if they don’t come out I’ll have to wait till day light tomorrow morning.

    I wouldn't automatically think it was used, but let's say possibly "handled & inspected".
    Cheers!
