Default Seiko SNZG glass back serial number

Where on earth do they put the serial number on the glass back case models?
As the rest of the info is on the glass, I cant see it being as indelible as the old stamped back style.
Your thoughts?

The 6-digit serial number is always located at the opposite end of the "SEIKO" text. The numbers are faintly stamped from the inside of the glass. You’ll have to tilt the caseback towards the light to read the numbers properly or better still, use a magnifying glass.


Update: Some very recent model Seiko 5s have the serial number printed not on the glass but along the caseback rim. If you can’t see the serial number on the glass, then look for them on the caseback rim (usually located on at the bottom part of the caseback).

Thanks for that.
Found it on the case back outer polished ring.
Glasses on plus 3x magnifiers, in bright sunlight with tounge in left ear, squinting tightly, viola there it was, easy.

I thought that this was the norm for 'exhibition back' cases?

I can totally relate to that feeling, I want to know where the last thirty years vanished to? The first ten years of your life seem to last forever, then the next 6 or so, till you leave school seem to drag. After that things seem to speed up and at my (our?) age time is passing at Warp Factor 9 and still accelerating!
