    I think in that case the official Casio number is GW-2000BD-1A. End letters are often left off by sellers. They should be the same thing.

    This is a common sort of question, and I just updated the trivia page to explain this and many other similar questions:

    I've been using the Wiki trivia page without realizing who I was indebted to.

    Thanks Riley!

    That legend applies to all Casio watches, the only difference is the prefix which specifies the watch family: ProTreks start with PRG (non-atomic) and PRW (atomic) and Pathfinders (the name used for ProTreks in North America) start with PAG/PAW.

    +1. I cannot tell you how often I use the resources that Riley has put together. He is such a great asset to this community.

    Just adding to the original question.

    There is probably no difference between a -1 and -1A model, but there could be a -1B and even -1C, etc models. In that case the basic color is black, but the lettering might differ in color a bit. It does not happen much. It happens more with the blue models, as there is a dark blue and a light blue model. Then there are a -2A and a -2B version. The letter A is not often used in the suffix.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the reply , little more decoding ..

    So what does the following mean
    CR
    stand in PAG240-1CR
    D stands in PRG-240-1D
    Even though both look same models.
