    As far as I know some codenames are available at Ebay.de. At least I've seen many in the past.

    I think it's more likely the features of the codename modules gets put in one of the new mudman case/band/bezel than the old one gets remade.
    Even the DW-5000 reissue is more of a 5600E than a DW-5000.
    Good luck finding an original 8500, they are great looking watch.

    I just saw somebody wearing one at Starbucks! Not the 8500 CodeName but the other one, I think 8800?
    At the same Starbucks, another guy wearing a ltd ed. 6900. I dont know the model name off hand, it has a red face and "Play Dirty" on the band. My GF actually spotted that one.

    Two rare sightings at one place within a half an hour!

    Keep on eye on Ebay. I picked both of my Codenames on there. My red DW-8500 does not say "Codename" on it's face, and that's probably why the seller did not list as being one, even though it is. It's also probably why I got is for such a reasonable price.

    I absolutely love this watch!
