Default [Q] Updating Non-U.S. Galaxy Gear to Tizen

I just recently purchased a Galaxy Gear online and apparently it isn't a US model. I don't think it's a fake, it's just from another country. It runs Android with no problems, but I would like to upgrade to Tizen. When I connect to Kies 3 however, it doesn't show that there is an updated firmware available. I'm not afraid to flash Tizen manually, but so I need to flash the ROM specific to the country this device was made for?
