Where did you get it from, and was it very cheap? Post a picture if you are able.

Looks like that model should have a frog on the caseback:

I will also say that the DW8200 seems to be faked a lot, but we will need pictures to tell you for sure.

The fakes have a similar screwback as the real one, though lower quality gravure. If there is a red stripe over the back, it's probably fake. If it was too cheap to believe (under $100.- for a BNIB) maybe too. We need pics to tell!

Cheers,

Sjors

soo, I'm reeeaaally late to this party, but I'm very amused and happy to know that my Version is called the "Pull out Frog" Model :D :D

anyone know where to get an original overseas version strap? (The difference being that "Electro Luminescence" is on the top (buckle) strap, and the bottom one has "Illuminator" printed on it)

edit PS: and also, what screws do I need for the bezel? (I'm missing one on the side) // Also also, are there any nato-adapters for this model?

Wow! Only 8 years

I got a new Electro Luminescence strap for mine from an eBay seller in Poland, cost a bit though.

Yeah, I know right...

Hmm, ok, I'll have to be on the lookout then
Cost somewhere around the £40 I think, couldn't find a black bezel for it though, (I bought it from eBay as just the watch itself with no bezel or straps), so I plumped for a yellow one from Tiktox.

I found some from the JP version, could go with that until I find the matching one... but in the end I do want the red lettering and the Overseas edition strap
