    Serial Number Check

    What is Casio still putting serial numbers on?

    My g200-2jf has one, I assume all frogs do. Apparently the g5600-1jf does as well.

    g9000?

    Greetings All,

    Hi Jlh,
    I believe I saw the the MUDMAN range with a serial number. I can't remember if it was the gw-9000 or the g-9000. I'm leaning towards the g-9000.

    From memory, the gw-400 silencer had one. I'm sure I've seen a pic some where.

    I actually wondered about this before. Why Casio would need serial numbers.

    I don't know, I guess identification. Same reason guns, notebooks, and bikes have them. Loss or theft I guess.

    Can't see a sn in pics of the back of the g9000, but I wouldn't know if it was covered up by that back cover.

    Thinking about it, I can only hazard the guess it's also for the factory to keep track of batches of production. Especially handy if you produce a group of models with poor solar cells. The fact that it's erratic is odd.

    Thanks for the list Leon

    EDIT: Their doesn't appear to be serial number on the g-9000 or gw-9000

    Re: Serial Number Check

    Well it could be 2 things,

    1. that it's is not consistantly on all G-Shocks now made
    2. that the serial number is under the rubber of the case back (makes sense on the g-9000 as you got to remove the rubber to change the battery BUT It would be odd to hide the serial number under the rubber on the GW-9000 because the battery is not changed as it is solar (that is the "offical" casio line:-D )


    Cheers
    Leon

    Re: Serial Number Check

    So can we check the watches on our wrists and report whether you SEE a serial number on them? g9000? g5600j? g6900? g2300? Someone has all of those models I know. Give it up.

    No serial number on:

    G-5600 DR (Japan Y)
    G2310 (Thailand)
    G2310 (Japan Y)
    DW-6900 (China)
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
