    Manufacture Date

    Hi,

    I've read through all the forums I could find concerning Gshock manufacture dates, but I can't find answer to my question. The batch number on my GW-5000 that I just purchased new is "I"... 201E135I. That means it was made in either 2009 or 2019. Quite the difference there. Is there any way to figure it out? I can't find an answer anywhere.

    Thank you.

    * I made this thread accidentally in the "Fake watch" forum.

    Thanks for posting that. I did see that in my searches, but there is no way of knowing if the watch was built in 2019 or if I just bought a 10 year old watch built in 2009. Am I missing something?

    Re: Manufacture Date

    which one do you think would be the more likely scenario
    1. a store has sat on stock for 10 years and you were "lucky" enough to stumble across it?
    2. a new watch was made in the year you bought it?

    Stranger things have happened. I was just curious if there was a way of finding out for sure. Thank you for your input.
