    What's the difference in these models?

    Hey guys, I was just over at hbwatches.com and noticed they will have the gw-9000 mudman in September. here's the link http://www.hbwatches.com/gw9000a-1-c...tch-p-455.html (not affiliated)

    i noticed the model number is gw-9000A. Does anybody know what the difference is between the 9000A and the original version, which I think is just gw-9000-1(jf) or (ver)?? My guess is country of manufacture or designation, but i'm not sure. :thanks in advance.

    My guess is home market and export market.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    The J in 1JF would indicate it's for Japanese consumption (not that they eat it).

    I'm actually trying to figure out the difference in the gw-9000A and gw-9000-1j and variants. What is the "A" for on the model? :thanks

    Thanks tribe. I am familiar with the "J" and "V" distinctions, it's just the "A" in the model designation that's got me scratching my head (as in GW-9000A). As always, :thanks

    I think 'A' means export too. I had a GW-500 that was a GW-500A, and it was identical to a GW-500. Casio has never been entirely consistent with their model numbers.
