I have a vintage G-Shock which I purchased over 10 years ago from an eBay seller in Australia, who said he got it in Japan. It was sold to me as a DW-5600C-9V, however, after finding the article: "DW-5600 Model Versions - The First Nine - An Illustrated Guide", either posted by, and/or written by CasioPhile, I am not so sure, because the watch is showing characteristics of both the C-9V and the C-9CV, as follows:
1. The module is a 901, but it has a CR-2320 battery installed
2. The LCD Screen is gold
3. It has gold buttons, gold bezel screws, gold buckle, and gold accents on the dial
4. The black bezel has gold colored lettering
5. The gold border on the dial is thick, and is an unbroken line
6. The dial states "Water 200M Resist"
7. The case back style is: Japan H Circleback Type 1
8. The light is a dim whitish color
1. In #1, above, the module is characteristic of the C-9CV, but the battery is characteristic of the C-9V
2. In #2, above, the LCD screen is characteristic of the C-9CV
3. In #3, above, the buttons, bezel screws, buckle, and accents on the dial are characteristic of the C-9V
4. In #4, above, the black bezel is characteristic of both the C-9V and the C-9CV
5. In #5, above, the thick, gold, unbroken, border on the dial is characteristic of the C-9V
6. In #6, above, the "Water 200M Resist" is characteristic of both the C-9V and the C-9CV
With this information, could anyone help me to confirm just what Model Version I have?
Is it the DW-5600C-9V or the DW-5600C-9CV?
