    What's the difference between the GW-5610-1JF and the GW-5610-1 ?

    I ask because the -GW-5601-1JF is about $227 from one of our popular overseas vendors, and the -1 can be had on Amazon for $140. For that price difference, you would think there's something significant, but how much different can the same model really be? I'm sure Casio has a hand in quality control.

    Thoughts?

    There should be no difference between "JF" and non-"JF" versions. The price difference likely has to do with factors external to the watch itself. (E.g., cost of living, currency issues, etc.)

    They are the same models. The GW-5610-1JF is a JDM (Japanese Domestic Model) and the GW-5610-1 is an international/US domestic model. G-Shocks are more expensive in Japan and the price difference is the exchange/conversion rate for a JDM model which is usually fairly pricey to import.

    Casio releases only a few atomic G-Shock models for the US. For example, you'll see more non-atomic models and to purchase an atomic version of the same model you'll have to import one from Japan which can run you $100-200 more.
