Determining the Age of a 10X42 L IS by Serial Number

In another thread, Kimmo was trying to determine if the Canon 10X42 L IS being discussed by another member was a recent sample by asking about the serial number.

So, Kimmo or anyone else, how do you interpret the serial number to determine information about the age. The number on mine is 217000xx. My best guess from the little I know about the history is it is 2014 or early 2015.

It's all about the view!
