I resently purchased a DW-004 1825 the same model that I worn for 7.5 years but this one has a different color schem. The only other difference is one made in Japan and one in Thailand I also purchased a DW-004 1826 that looks almost the same as my original DW-004 1825. One is a G-lide and one is an X-treme It may be the same as my original DW-004 1825 but I do not remeber the exact color scheme and mine has taken a beating. See pictures below. Is this common for Casio to make exact same model number in different colors and 2 different modle in the exact same color?

Same modle different color. 1825 and 1825




Same color different modle 1826 on left and 1825 on right.

Hello Stan2323,
It's not umcommon from Casio. Actually I recall Sjors posting pictures of two cream coloured g-9000. The only difference was the "200m" markings as opposed to "20bar". One had made in japan stamped on the back, whilst the other was Thailand (or was it Malaysia?:think: ).


I'll try and hunt up a link for you, but to answer your question in short. No it's not unheard of, from Casio. There is usually a difference in markings here and there (as in your case). In some cases (as the dw-8400) a model name may be dropped too (Mudman/Illuminator).

EDIT: link to the photos of the g-9000 duo

In this case (and I'm thinking for future cases) place of origin will be a moot point. It might be the case of movement from Japan cased in etc...
