    Where was my GWG-1000-1A3DR made?

    I bought a GWG-1000-1A3DR from a dealer in Hong Kong for GBP£374.91 including shipping and taxes to the UK and I want to find out which factory it was made.
    The batch number is 201B316H and the serial number is 8NJLB8. I know from the batch number it was made on the 12th of November 2018. I purchased it on the 21st of May 2019 and it was delivered on the 1st of June 2019 so it was on a shelf for quite some time until it was sold. Does anyone know how to work the factory location out?

    What does it say after 'STAINLESS STEEL BACK'?

    Curious why you want to know where it was made...

    Where did you go? LOL!

    201B is the factory code but it should say on the case back. 'JAPAN H' for instance.

    Check on back case if “JAPAN H” or “JAPAN MOV’T - CASED IN THAILAND”

    Yeah, it's this - one or the other. Don't need to check factory code. It's either made at Yamagata or Casio's Thailand factory.

    Casio has a factory in Yamagata, one in Thailand, and I believe two in China. I've never seen a Mudmaster though with a case back saying it was assembled in China.

    I found out that from the batch number my watch was made in Yamagata. I was just curious as someone told me the quality was slightly better if it was manufactured in Japan. Sorry for the delay., I've been away for a few days.
