    Wink JP vs Overseas EL picture

    Do you see the difference? It's the only one I could find after comparing 2 G-9000-8's models. The right one is a present for my brother, which he will get this afternoon (another day of cakes, pie's, food, beer, food, beer, more food and more beer )



    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Actually the 20Bas/200M was the only difference I could find on both models. Color changes were due to the possition of the displat to the lens of my camera. Here you can find all my comparison pics.

    The right looks brighter and clearer, although that could be the cam angle steadiness

    Re: JP vs Overseas EL picture

    The letters and numerals on the left display appear slightly less distinct then the right display. But the background of the left display appears perhaps one magnitude darker then the right display.

    Both appear acceptably sharp and legible. I assume one piece was manufactured in Japan and the other elsewhere?
    Best regards,

    Wink Re: JP vs Overseas EL picture

    Well, in fact the EL's were exactly the same, but one of the dials was shot from a little different angle and the focus was a little bit blurrier. Nope the only difference was the 200m Water resist. Even the back's are the same. Anyway,
    Do you see the difference?
    it was a question by me, not a quiz, ha ha.

    Cheers,

    Question Re: JP vs Overseas EL picture

    Is there a reason why 'bar' is used on some watches and 'metres' on others? What's the deal? Just a question...

    The words *WR20BAR* on the watch face is a pressure measurement unit meaning 20 Bars, that converts to 19.73 atmospheres which is fairly close to 200 metres water resistant. European and USA models usually say 200 metres, as opposed to Japanese models which say 20bars.
    The letters WR stand for Water resistant:thanks
