Yes I love Seiko Quartz. Here's a pic of my new addition. It's the markings on the case back I'm interested in. Any ideas, ever seen it before?

The stamp "B0310" most likely refers to the last battery change.
that makes sense to me too Mario-d
Ahhhhh, sounds plausible. Just the other number now. Thank you for your help!!!!

B = battery change
first 2 digits = the month
last 2 digits = the year
I would have to agree that it is a date stamp since 03/10 is 10 years past the end of the stock battery change markings on the caseback.

I would think this would only be done if the watch was used in a commercial dive environment as the average desk diver would be oblivious to what the marking on the caseback mean
mmm strange. I have a 7C43 with similar marking s B0804

But they don't look hand stamped to me - the typeface is bigger than that of the serial numbers - but the alignment of the characters , positioning and neatness, imply that they are machine stamped. Wonder if they were added by Seiko for some reason
