    Fox Fire/Illuminator query

    I didn't bid on a DW-6900 the other day and kind of regret it, but still want to know something.

    It had a Japan M stamped backplate, but an Illuminator faceplate.

    Am I wrong in thinking that Japan made were all Fox Fire's, or did they distribute European market Illuminators that were Japan factory stamped?

    Cheers!!

    I thought all JDM watches were either Fox Fire or Electro Luminescence, but I could be wrong. I thought I had at least one Japan M DW-6600 that was an Illuminator, but there was no guarantee that the plate wasn't switched by someone at some point.

    This thread implies that at least for the DW5600, watches with the Fox Fire label aren't all necessarily built in Japan.

    Definitely, there is a difference between Made in Japan and made for the Japanese market. My DW-6900X is a Fox Fire but is Made in Korea.
