    What is the small underlined zero on the face of the Casio G-Shock DW5600-1VER?

    Does anyone know what the small underlined zero on the face of the Casio G-Shock DW5600-1VER, under the word “Chrono”, signifies? I haven’t got any photos of it myself but here’s a link to a thread showing one:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/dw5...-a-550871.html

    The underlined zero isn’t clear in the photo. I know it’s an underlined zero from looking with a loupe at my own DW5600-1VER. I haven’t got a camera to take a photo of it, though.

    Presumably this zero will be on all DW5600-1VERs.

    Haven't found an answer yet myself. I read something awhile back that speculated it could be a factory code, but nothing definitive...

    It Is asked many times, but never answered. Maybe it's the place to get the prints on the faceplate all on the right place.

    The best guess I've heard so far is that it is an alignment mark used during manufacturing and/or assembly. Not sure anyone knows for sure.

    it's rather a spell that the Gshock makers cast on us

    the letter "o" in English would be pronounced as "MO" by the Japanese, as they try to say "MORE" or loosely translated as "GET MORE"

    and that's the truth, once one gets a Gshock, he can't stop buying MORE

    If it was that, wouldn't it stand to reason that we could find a similar mark on other similar watches?

    Though, one could make the case for the same thing if it was a mark for where the watch was manufactured.....
