Thx for the information about the the codes.
But under the head code another code is placed but I can't figure out what it means. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I'm having an INDY500 from 2004.
So the head coding is CAC111A and on the bracelet itself I have the code BA0850-0.
But under the head code I also have the code JE5270. And I like to know what this code means.

Any help very much appreciated.

Thx,
Dremeber

That is the serial number that is unique to your watch.

The others are model numbers for the case and bracelet.

No progress on the older codes then? I have a 929.213G on the back of mine, so I can work out that it is mid-size thanks to David at least!

I'd love to know more about this watch as I got it history free. Is there a website anywhere with more information?

Nice reference. Thank you.

Now the ultimate find would be the same type of reference for the pre 1991-92 model numbers in the 111.111 format. I say we all make a joint effort to find one.

What say you?

Did a 111.111 reference ever surface?
Thanks for your resourcefulness.

Here's a question. Me and a Friend have the same watch - a WJ1114 Link watch. The back of his case has WJ1114-0 and mine just has WJ1114. Do we know what the '-0' represents?

Thanks...

John

does it have to do with the type of clasp used? Does the 0 represent a pushbutton type clasp?

Don't think so, I found this model specifically online with the -0 and their clasp type was " Tri-fold, Sport style, with security flip-lock." I have the same on the non-0 model. Not quite sure that they would represent the orginial clasp on the case back. I do know that this model is now discontinued and he felt that he bought the last year's edition. Perhaps the -0 means it was made in the last year they made the WJ1114? Any other ideas?

So,

Does anyone have an idea why some models are suffixed with an "-0" on the case back? It appears that one of the early posts mention it and I am seeing other models having this suffix and some of the same models with out it.

It is not mentioned on any of the posts.

Thanks!

What if we contact the company itself? :think: i hope they'd accommodate us.

BTW, am new here. found this forum while trying to find answers myself, and already i have learned a lot. still, like to all of you, the x11.111 format remains an enigma. I own a watch that says S87.806 and might be, as I am not certain, an SEL. It was given to me and the previous owner didn't know as well what it meant.

I am looking at another watch that says WH5111 - K1. I now know, thanks to all of you, what the first six digits mean, but the 'K' and '1' marks still elude me. Pls help!!!

Eeeb, David and all others involved in this thread, sorry to bring up an older thread but still looking for info on the older codes xxx.xxx format,

My observations can only relate to the 1000 series but may be the same for other models.

See the attached pic of a catalogue scan taken from "onthedash", vintage heuer enthusiasts site with great info.

With regards to the 1000 series,

Example - the X determines dial colour as follows -

980.X13 -

0 - Black Dial
1 - Luminescant Dial
6 - Blue Dial
9 - Red Dial

the X determines

980.0XX - the X denotes man/ladies version

06, 13, 20, 21, 26, 31 - Mans version

08, 15, 18, 25 - Ladies version

These last two digits also relate to the case, whether its two-tone, black pvd or plain stainless steel.

Also something i cant work out is the addition of a letter at the end as follows -

XXX.XXXB, XXX.XXXN or XXX.XXXL, think its size but dont know specifically.

Again, i have a hunch these codes may well be specific to models and may have a different meaning across the board?????.o|

Hope it helps a little in solving the puzzle.

All the best,

James.

I did this one a while back, so I'll have to go the quick route.

This post addresses only the post year 1992 code format... AA#### A third alpha was introduced somewhere around 2002 for the expanded line and new iterations of many of the series. This post does not address three alpha codes. (eg WAH1110)

1st Character = W= Analog or C= Chornograph

2nd Character = Series... H= 6000 A= Vinatge F1 series, D= Vintage 1500, E = Vintage 2000, , F= 4000, G= S/el Series, I=S/el Leather, K= 2k Classic, L= Kirium , M=2000 Sport Series, N= 2k Exclusive, =AH current F1 etc.... I know there a bunch of Classic Series that follow (Monaco, Carrera, Monza, etc) but those aren't in my recall anymore.

3rd Character (1st digit) = Movement 1= Qtz 2 = Automatic 3= Manual Wind 5 = Chronometer (there is a 7, but I think that's the new wheel chronos..)

4th Charcter (2nd digit) = Size 0= Magnum/Grande, 1 = Gents, 2=Midsize 3= Ladies, 4= Ladies Mini

5th Character (3rd digit) = Case base material 1= Stainless Steel, 2= Steel and Gold Plate, 3=All Gold Plated, 4 = Solid 18k, 5= Steel and Solid 18k

6th Character (4th digit) = Dial color No real standard across the models anymore.


NOTE: I did this all quickly from recall and I did review it once, so while I believe it is pretty accurate, it may not be complete.

The bracelets and straps had codes, but I was never really interested in those much.

Cheers,

David
Great to know! Thanks buddy!

Thread resurrection again but this seems more relevant than me posting up a new thread.

I'm currently looking at buying a WV211B.BA0787, that is, the one with bracelet and 'batons' instead of numbers. However I've seen several for sale which are stated as BA0787 but have numbers at 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. Is this correct or do people have the wrong model, or is there some other means of differentiating between the two types? (I think I've also seen an FC2602, which I'd guess is the same watch but on leather.)
