Default NY2300 same as 4-824164 Y

I have a Citizen 4-824164 Y that was purchased on the way back from my honeymoon in 1999. In an effort to learn more about the watch I searched for that model online and only found the a link with a picture, but no information about the watch (sorry, I do not have enough posts to include a link yet). My watch looks exactly like the NY2300; is it essentially the same watch, but Citizen changed its model nomenclature? If not, what is the difference between the 4-824164 Y and NY2300?

It has been a great watch that has been on numerous dives or snorkeling excursions, and never missed a beat.

Any enlightenment from the Citizen aficionados here would be appreciated.

Thanks.

A quick google search seems to indicate that they're nearly (if not exactly) the same thing. Watch case numbers and model numbers are two different things. A common Seiko SKX007 (model number) has a case number of 7s26-0020. Same with Citizen. I have an NY2300 at home...will have to check the case number is.

Twall3, below is everything on the back of the watch, exactly how it appears:

"CITIZEN WATCH CO.
WATER RESIST
STAINLESS
4-824164-Y
8D0146
GN-4-S
JAPAN"

An internet search for "4-824164-Y" produced a link to a photo that looked like my watch on the seikoholics forum and some sales ads with a picture of my watch and "4-824164-Y" given as the model number.

A search for "GN-4-S" brings up a host of different Citizen models, so I think that is the movement designator.

A search for "8D0146" brings up nothing watch related. The characters for this designator are larger than the others on the back of the watch and they appear to be stamped into a space that was left blank, so this might be a serial number.

So, based on my search it appears that "4-824164-Y" is the model number for this 1999 Citizen. If I am off the mark, please let me know what the model number for this watch is.

I have attached a photo for your viewing pleasure.
