    "S" Stamped DW-9600WC

    This is my second 9600WC pickup in recent months, the other I RIT dyed because it had gone yellow.

    This one is in better overall condition, no marks on the crystal for one thing, and different colours.

    Also as I found out when it arrived, it's an "S" stamped model, so staff or sales, but fully working either way. I know the stamped watches aren't any more valuable, but possibly a bit more collectible/unusual I guess.

    I have one other "S" stamped G, my GLX-5600F-8ER.

    I believe the 'S' stamped casebacks are sample models given to distributors/dealers...they are 'Not for Sale' models.

    it is a Sample Watch for sales reps. its marked so as to not incur taxes and duty fees. they are fully functional and it does nothing to the resale price (although people try to make it seem rare.) they wind up on the market when the model promotion ends and reps either get to keep them, give them to an employee at a store that does high numbers, or are marked for destruction, and somehow never make it to that point.
