    GXW-56-1BJF Back case markings?

    Hello all!
    I just got this
    GXW-56-1BJF.
    The back case says made in Thailand, Should it say made in Japan?

    I'm not positive... but I think the "made in Thailand" refers to the caseback only..

    Not necessarily. Some GXW-56 watches are made in Japan, but others are made in China or Thailand.

    The JF at the end of your model number means it's a JDM model, for distribution in Japan. It doesn't mean it's also made in Japan.

    Is that true with all models or just the 56?

    That JDM models can be made in places other than Japan applies to most or all models, as far as I know.
