Hi Julie.

For your list above, starting with the numbers 702, the first number is the year of manhfacture (2007), and 02 is the week in the year. So these were manufactured in early January 2007.

Re: Need Manufacture Date of DL385's by Serial Number

Is there a document showing the breakdown of the serial numbers? I am wanting to begin tracking my products by serial number. I have been searching, but haven't found anything yet. Any information on more of the breakdown of the serial numbers would be helpful.

Thanks,

An old post, but why not reply for the benefit of new Googlers ;-)

 

I can swear a 100% by this info, but I'm pretty sure of them:

 

S/n starts with GB or CZ -> fourth position is manufacturing year (9=2009, 0=2010 etc) , fifth and sixth form week nr

Ex:

CZ214502KT

Manufactured week 45 in 2011
