On the back there will be a serial#. The last letter represents the year, previous 3 #'s represent the day of the year.
The "B" represents 2012. 275th day of the year is October 2nd. Other threads here break down the rest of the code and show the other year codes. Hope this helps.
Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?
It may also have A as a code because some of the models released in 2012 were made in late 2011
According to Edogg's pic it is May 9th 2012, since 130B= 130th day of 2012. Pretty cool I will have a watch that is that recently manufactured, that also had to be shipped from Japan to a previous owner even.
