    GDX6900 naming convention - GD-X6900-

    Hi everyone, quite new to this and couldn't find a thread.

    Basically saw the 6900 Xl models on the casio websites listed as GDX-6900, basic model for example is GDX6900-1. However on other non casio websites online models are named GD-x6900-1.

    I wanted to know why the convention naming was different, are those counterfeit? Saw one listed as GD-x6900-1DR , what does the DR mean?

    Weight on the two models was also different between say GDX6900-1 and GD-x6900-1D with one model being around 84 and the other 79. Any ideas and insight would be most welcomed.

    Thanks in advance and regards

    GD-X6900 is the proper name, some people just don't put the dashes in. I've never seen a fake GD-X (yet), so I wouldn't worry about that.

    Any time that you see DR/CR/ER/JR/JF, that just denotes where it's original market region is, there's no difference between them.*

    For whatever reason specs are strangely variable between different sites sometimes, it just depends on who is taking the measurements. FWIW, Sjors' 50 G's article on the GD-X has it weighing in at 81g

    *(Before someone mentions it, I know that JR/JF models can have differences to international versions, but GD-X's don't have any differences ;).)

    If CASIO can't decide how to punctuate their own model numbers, how can they expect others to get it right? The Gshock.com site (owned by Casio) calls it the GDX6900: GDX6900-1 - Classic - Mens Watches | Casio - G-Shock

    ...but two different casio.com sites call it the GD-X6900: GD-X6900-1ER - G-SHOCK - Watch - Products - CASIO & Casio Releases Heathered G-SHOCK GD-X6900 Watches

    As mentioned above, suffix codes are usually just to differentiate the designated market: here's a link to the "How to Read Model Numbers" chart. ER is often used for the European market, J and JF are for the Japanese market.

    The way Casio G-Shock naming convention works is that the first part in this case GD describes the type of watch in this case digital hence GD as in G-Shock Digital Readout. Then the next part describes characteristics about the case, in this case it is a 6900 model case but in XL form factor hence X6900. The final part of the name is color characteristics and market distribution. All of these factors should be separated by - so a GD-X6900-1ER is a G-Shock Digital Readout-XL 6900 case/strap in - black color for the European market!

    Yeah G-Shock US (gshock.com) and Australia don't use the hyphens after the prefix for some reason, but all the other international sites do.
