Can someone help me determine the origin of the 7S26A in my 3 NOS/BNIB S-Waves, and the origin of the entire watch...here's why:

The movement is smaller than the standard 7S26A, more along the lines of the 4206. Also, the hangtags indicate 49 as the first two digits of the bar code. Some gentleman from another forum responded to my question there, and showed me the ladies' yellow S-Wave with the same 49 as the first two digits of the bar code and told me that that indicated Japan---as the country code. I am positive that 49 is the country code for Germany, as 81 is the country code for Japan, of this I am positive.

You can have this watch for $79.99 on Overstock.com. I am shocked at the value you get for such a low price.
