    Where did you get it from, and was it very cheap? Post a picture if you are able.

    Looks like that model should have a frog on the caseback:

    I will also say that the DW8200 seems to be faked a lot, but we will need pictures to tell you for sure.

    The fakes have a similar screwback as the real one, though lower quality gravure. If there is a red stripe over the back, it's probably fake. If it was too cheap to believe (under $100.- for a BNIB) maybe too. We need pics to tell!

    Cheers,

    O yeah, the overseas model did not have the Frog ("Left out Frog model"). Bigger chance it is original!

    soo, I'm reeeaaally late to this party, but I'm very amused and happy to know that my Version is called the "Pull out Frog" Model :D :D

    anyone know where to get an original overseas version strap? (The difference being that "Electro Luminescence" is on the top (buckle) strap, and the bottom one has "Illuminator" printed on it)

    edit PS: and also, what screws do I need for the bezel? (I'm missing one on the side) // Also also, are there any nato-adapters for this model?

    Wow! Only 8 years

    I got a new Electro Luminescence strap for mine from an eBay seller in Poland, cost a bit though.
