    Silly letters...

    Well, I have that DW-5600R on the way but I've found about 3 variations in the model numbers..

    DW-5600R-3DR
    Dw-5600R-3AVER
    DW-5600R-3JF

    Are all of these the same watch, but exported to different places?? I'm guessing the 3rd one may be Japanese market but...

    Yup, think of it as "geek code" for us crazy collectors. I cannot take credit for that chart, though; it was from tribe, our gracious moderator.

    Yup, that chart rocks. I have it on my wall (joke)...

    The main stuff to know is in the first 4 boxes I reckon.

    Er, the chart has nothing to do with me... other than rescuing it from the bowels of the forum and making it more accessible.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Buddha-G, who hasn't been a member of the forum for some considerable time.

    It could do with updating actually. All contributions gratefully received.
