Welcome to the forum.

Its fairly straightforward;-

The back page of your Owners Handbook has the Certificate of Authenticity on which the serial number of the watch, in your case #383/500, is recorded.

The COSC Certificate has the serial number of the Movement, in your case #4164, recorded on it. There is also the white sticky back label, with a bar code and the movement number, that is affixed to the watch (so that the serial number of the movement inside is known).

With CW watches the serial numbers of the watch and the movement will be different.

Hope this helps.

Having just received my first COSC CW, my initial reaction was how do I know that I have the correct COSC certificate.

I am still none the wiser, on this, given that on looking at the cert I was aware that the movement number is something different to the watch serial number?
