If i'm not wrong, they are substantially of the same period. It's the first generation of N1 Rockets with smaller case. I bought the first one in 2006 (leather strap, no bracelet), i like it more because of the green numerals.

EDIT: i meant bigger case, not smaller.

You really won't be able to tell whether it is a first or second generation until you get it as the stock photos don't show these subtle differences:

1) The first generation had a uni-directional rotating bezel. The second generation is bi-directional.

2) The first generation had longer lugs (off the case, not width between) than the second.

these are very minor changes that occurred within a year of the launch of the first model. Both these dials were launched at the same time in both generations.

hope this helps...
