    Earliest Rangeman production stamp

    OK all you Rangeman owners...flip your watch over and check out the stamping and post here if you are earlier than:

    202A213C

    To see when they started manufacture of the released Rangeman.

    If my math is correct, both my green and positive we're made on May 10. Edit: 213C =August 1, 2013

    If I'm not mistaken the last four digits represents the date of manufacture so 2130 would mean day 213, ie Aug 1, 2013, assuming that the last zero represents the starting year (2013).

    Day numbers 2013

    I believe the last digit is a "C" for year 2013 instead of "0"

    Re: Earliest Rangeman production stamp

    I think the production date is relative, the number on the caseback is supposed to be the production date of the caseback only, there is no way we can be sure whether the module or the watch itself has been made on the same date because they are likely to be made in different locations.
