Some examples

So, how does this work out? Let's look at a few examples.

GC100FHL

The G means this is a Gents, the C means it has the coffeebrown colour, the one means it has no day or date, 100 means this is the very first coffee coloured Gents and finally the extension means it has a Fachandellogo dial. Easy, isn't it? Another one:

GZ150AL

The G means this is a Gents, the Z means it is a Special, the one means it has no day or date, 150 means this is the fiftyfirst Gents Special and finally the extension means it was an Olympic Swatch given to Athletes of Belgium (the L). And finally:

SVDK1017PU

A transparent (K) Diaphane Automatic (SVD) with no day or date. Number eightteen of its kind. Sold both in the Vendome and the Spiga store.
