    Do anyone know what is different between CItizen NY0040-09E and NY0040-09EE?

    I am a big fan of Italian commando dive watch. I am looking forward to Citizen NY0040 but I do not know what to pick between two model? Its case is different? Quality different? Something? Please help.

    It appears one has an extra "E".

    The one with the extra E is has great signal reception and a reasonable monthly tariff. GPS too.

    Alright, I'm proud of that goof, but I realize it's not very welcoming to a new member. Let me go serious for a moment...

    I have no idea what the difference is. I assume that if there was an obvious visual difference, you'd have seen it, Pete. Since you're asking, I assume there isn't an obvious visual difference.

    I see several possibilities:

    1. There's no difference at all. The difference of that one letter could signify a different assembly point, or a different destination market, something Citizen does for internal use. It could also be just a typo in the listing, from someone fat-fingering the number whilst typing. It could be that the added E is somewhat like Seiko's use of an added letter to designate different markets for the same model.

    2. A change in number which occurred when a change in spec was made, but still something you'd never see. Maybe they went from a plastic movement spacer to a metal spacer, or changed something else which is equally discreet.

    3. Maybe there are two different sizes of this design, like the Seiko SKX007 and SKX013 - nearly, if not completely identical in appearance, yet one is 38mm, and the other is 42.5mm. But, if that is the explanation, I'd think Citizen would be smart enough to use more decidedly different model numbers.

    If you've looked both model numbers up online, and don't see any difference in appearance or stated dimensions, I wouldn't worry about any difference in quality, even if they originate from different assembly points, or were made in different years.

    I think the somewhat wide-spread belief that there's a noticeable difference in quality between a "J" or "M" model from a major brand is more likely due to inevitable, yet very small variations in quality in manufacturing, regardless of point of origin.

    I hope all that helps, and that if I'm wrong, and there is a difference, someone will come along to enlighten us.

    It seems the "EE" variation is the version designated for distribution within the European market. Exact same watch as the "E", though. To make matters even more confusing, there's also the NY0040-09EEM, the European 09E but on a bracelet instead of rubber.
