How to Spot a Fake G-Shock

    Posted the 15th day of January in 2008 by Riley.


Fake G-Shocks in US Retail Stores

There is a large number of fake G-Shocks being sold on eBay, online stores and even in local shopping malls. A fake G-Shock looks worse, will easily fall apart and is not nearly as cool as the real thing.

Amazon.com is probably the safest place online to buy G-Shocks. And they have really good prices and selection too. Here's an easy tool to look up current good deals on Amazon:

Amazon G-Shock Deal Finder - Amazon is the safest way to buy G-Shocks.

The best way to tell if a G-Shock is real or not is to look up the Casio model number here (enter the model # in the search box):

G-Shock Section of the Watch Archive

  • Compare the seller's photos to the image(s) on the archive page for that model (example).
  • Most fake G-Shocks don't even list a real model number for the watch (G-9000-1, DW-6900CS-1, etc…).
  • All G-Shocks should have the word "Casio" on the face and on the back (might be small though)

Every real Casio G-Shock should come with a box that has the full model number printed on the back (by the bar code). Look for the official Casio G-Shock logo too. And a partial model number will always be engraved on the case back. It's probably a fake if the watch doesn't have one, or if it doesn't match the photos in the watch archive.

Be sure to check the details like the text painted on various surfaces. The knockoffs often have poor quality control. Fakes often use a very cheap LCD that stands out when compared to an authentic model. The real ones also should have a good quality backlight. Once you've handled a few real Casio watches and their packaging it becomes much easier to spot the fake ones. You can go to a known good retail store like Macy's, Target or Sears to see a real one in person.

Most of the fakes are pretty easy to spot. Like these crappy Baby-G watches:

Poor quality fakes

But better quality varieties are now becoming more common. Here's some better quality fake G-Shocks:

Fake G's

Every Photo on this Page is of Fakes!

(except for a few real ones posted in the comment section by people asking about them)

Don't be fooled into buying any of these crappy fake G-Shock watches. The real thing is much better.

Here's some good resources to check if you are interested in learning more about all the fake Casio G-Shocks that are out there.
- Watchuseek Forum for Fake G-Shock Reports
- G-Peopleland Fake G Alert
- Fake Bathing Ape G-Shock Guide

Be sure to look up more information on any model you are not sure about. You really are only going to be happy with a genuine G-Shock.

The watches in all of these photos are 100% fake. Don't buy one. They won't last longer than a month and any exposure to water will probably kill it. Real G-Shocks will last near forever and shrug off all kinds of abuse. And you will look like a loser wearing a fake one. The real ones stand out and look much cooler.

Update: Photos of new fakes in US malls, plus lots more.

And here's a video of a bunch of fakes. None of these are legit:





And here's another video doing some investigating in a mall:




Mauricio2610 made this video of a fake Transformers Destron DW-6900 G-Shock. He points out some good tips for spotting a fake G.




Paul Micken made this helpful video comparing a fake yellow Bape to a real red Bape. As you can see, a fake G-Shock is easy to spot if you have a real one next to it. Watch and learn.



If you find a watch and you're not sure if it's legit or not, you can post in the comment section below. I'll try to help you out.

  1.  

    Thanks for the info. I've been looking around on Ebay and I was worried that a lot of them were fakes.



  2.  

    where can you purchase genuine g shock watches?



  3.  

    Like mentioned above, buying from Amazon.com is probably the safest and cheapest way to buy a real G-Shock.



  4.  


    Please tell me its real:(



  5.  

    That looks real kiddclash. It's a stock image from Casio of the GLX-5600A-2.



  6.  

    How can you tell if the G-shock u bought from a jewelry store is fake bcuz my cousin got her from da jewelry store and if its fake imma laugh at her lol



  7.  

    There are lots of jewelry stores selling fake G-Shocks. Use all the tips above to see if it's fake. Or you can post a photo of it and we can help.



  8.  

    hi! I just got a g-Shock on eBay and I'm concerned about its authenticity.

    Would you help? I really appreciate it.

    The seller is DreamShopee

    Here's the link to the sale
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280419583107&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_4113wt_941

    And my pix

    BTW, the packaging is what's got me the most concerned. It's different from any other G-Shock box I've gotten, and there is no Casio mention on the box/stand, just G-shock. Would they ever do that?



  9.  

    It looks real juliet. It should be the DW-5600MS-1. That box and stand combination is one valid form of Casio G-Shock packaging. It's popular with discount sellers since it probably costs retailers slightly less than the nicer metal tin packages.



  10.  

    Thank you so much for you quick and informed reply! What a relief!
    If you ever need a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes authenticated, I'm your girl! I'd be happy to return the favor. ;)



  11.  

    No problem. I'm happy to give you the good news.

    And even though that cardboard box is a little flimsy, it's the only Casio packaging that comes with the little watch stand. So it has that going for it.



  12.  

    Hi there
    I have just bought a CASIO G-SHOCK SOLAR ATOMIC WATCH. GSHOCK MTG900DA-8V from 4-watches
    Top One International Corp.
    14 Bond Street #442
    Great Neck NY 11021
    4-watches.com

    the website says
    Original manufacturer serial numbers on all watches.
    All wrist watches come with warranty.
    Brand new, Authentic, never worn watches.

    however, the watch did not come with a manual and also the writing is faded on the face
    do you know of this company and whether they are genuine?

    Thank you
    Ian



  13.  

    Top One sells watches under a few different comain names. I've never heard of them selling fakes, but I have heard. Complaints about their customer. Service and conditions of the watch. If it doesn't look new and come with everything then you can try getting a refund.



  14.  

    How do you know that the ones in the video are fake because i have the blue and red one and i just got a clear one just like it,



  15.  

    The video above isn't the best quality, but I can say they are definitely all fake after having looked at thousands of real G-Shocks (photos and real life). Those watches resemble several popular models, but the details always give the fakes away.

    Post some photos of your G-Shocks and I can tell you for sure if they are real. They could be the real ones that these are based on. But there's a lot of fakes in stores out there right now.

    A real G-Shock should always have the full model number printed somewhere on the box or packaging (example: DW-6900LR-9DR). And the abbreviated model number engraved on the case back (example: DW-6900LR). You can search Google or the Watch Archive and compare your G-Shock to photos of a confirmed real one.



  16.  

    i got this picture from amazon and wanted to be sure its real before i buy it.
    here is the link cause i cant get the pictur in this comment

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock-Mudman-Digital-G9000-1V/dp/B000FPVUJA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=watches&qid=1261017381&sr=1-2



  17.  

    AznTime,

    That Mudman is real. As long as Amazon is the seller you should be safe. I've never heard of Amazon ever selling any fakes, but be a little careful if it's a third party seller selling through Amazon.com. They also have an excellent return policy if there is ever any problem with a watch.



  18.  

    Hallo everybody !!!

    I spend some time on net looking were to buy some authentic g-shocks..
    I have little experience with buying authentic new era hats and these shops

    dhgate.com



  21.  

    khabira,

    Those are all fakes. That site seems to specialize in selling fakes, and I did not see any real ones there. It's too bad that there are so many sources of these "replica" G-Shock watches. Please only buy from a reputable source. You will be very disappointed with a fake.



  22.  

    Please Riley can you check those 3 web site for model 6900.

    Thank you for your time Riley thanxxxx!!!!!
    Thank you for givin your knowledge for people !!!



  25.  

    I don't know that seller, but the prices seem to indicate they are real (fake ones are usually much cheaper), and the photos seem pretty good. You should research the seller more and see if they have a good track record of selling real ones. The photos could be real, but that doesn't mean they will necessarily sell you the one in the photos. There are LOTS of fake Bapes, so be extra careful.



  26.  

    Thanks Riley !!!
    I will deep think about what i will buy ..
    I will send you photo of what i have ..
    I RESPECT your help Riley..



  27.  

    Hi Riley,

    I am a newbie to G-Shocks, but have always wanted to get one. Your comment that there are no analogue Frogman's was really helpful, as a local Craigslist seller is trying to sell one that I was considering, but won't now that I know it is likely a fake. My question to you is, are there any analog G-Shock models that are authentic, or where would I be albe to find this out?

    Thanks for your time and sharing your knowledge on fake G-Shocks

    Steve



  28.  

    Hi Steve,

    There are hundreds of real analog and analog/digital G-Shocks.

    Here's some of the more popular series:

    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/AW-5xx/
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/AWG-xxx/
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/G-1xx/

    Just check the model number before buying a G-Shock. There's not many fakes that look exactly the same when compared side-by-side. And most fakes don't even have a model number. The Bapes are probably the hardest to tell.



  29.  

    are the g shocks on this wholesale site real. I doubt it but im curious.

    http://www.madeinchina.com/wholesale-keyword-p1/G+Shock+Watch.shtml&isList=0



  30.  

    EmanJones ,

    I would stay away from that website. They have a whole bunch of fakes.



  31.  

    Hi Riley

    I saw a pretty good deal for a frogman on ebay and was wondering if you could verify if its authentic. Here is the link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170422424202&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    It seems suspicious since it is both digital and analogue.



  32.  

    thanx riley



  33.  

    Hi Riley

    Could you also take look to see if this G9000MS1 is legit?

    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=me%3DA1IWWUOGM4ZTE5&field-keywords=G9000MS-1CR&x=0&y=0



  34.  

    Hi Riley
    I wish I'd found your website before I bought this watch!!
    It's disappointing to realise that it's probably a fake - please put me out of my misery and confirm it for me one way or another!
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230415021307&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT



  35.  

    Hello Riley,
    I recently purchased the G-shock DW-6600C from Amazon.com itself (and not a Amazon user) And it seems pretty legit but just to make sure can you verify?

    Thank you so much! (oh and the box it came from looked just like the one juliet's watch came in)




  36.  

    leoheart - that G-9000MS Mudman looks legit.

    kelvin1645 - That Frogman is fake. Sorry. There is no real analog/digital Frogman G-Shocks at this time.

    summer10 - That DW-6600 looks good. Amazon is usually no problem.



  37.  

    Merry Christmas and happy new year's Riley if I find a g-shock I'm interested in I'll definitely have it clarified by you first



  38.  

    hey riley i got this for christmas can you confirm if its real im concerned about the band its a double band



  39.  

    tyreewh,

    Those photos are lousy, but it looks real enough. That G-Shock is supposed to have a big nylon band like that.

    You can compare it to some photos here:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/G-Lide/GLS-5600V-7/



  40.  

    lol i know i had to use my phone and i have shakey hads so i had to do my best but from the photo they look the same thank you



  41.  

    Riley i also heard that Casio was making a polo g shock is that true



  42.  

    I haven't heard anything about a Polo G-Shock. I'll post it on the blog if I find any details on it though.



  43.  

    Hey Riley could you check out this G-Shock for me and tell me if it seems real. Its on ebay and the seller name is bernardino973. Its hot pink and black. They say hes a top-rated seller but you cant always trust that. There also a watch by seller 510 store called a VTG CASIO PRE G-SHOCK LCD WATCH 1219 DW-290 JAPAN M. If you can find these watches and tell me what you think that would be great. I tried to post the pictures but for some reason my computer wouldnt allow me too! oh well. Thanks again

    -gabe



  44.  

    gdbell,

    Stay far away from eBay seller bernardino973. He's selling a whole bunch of fake G-Shocks.

    Notice how the word "Casio" has been replaced with "Sport" on almost all of those watches. That's an easy way to spot a fake.

    That DW-290 looks real, but I don't know about the condition or the seller. I don't think that one is terribly desirable, but it might be alright.



  45.  

    It is pretty much easy for me to distinguished if those watches are real or fake. I can tell by the look and detail closely. I have been owning few G Shock watches for many years. I do think BAPE is a bit difficult to distinguished. I recognized lots of real G Shock models. I do trust Amazon, Macy, and Sears.



  46.  

    http://www.shoppehub.com/product_info.php?products_id=1722&language=1

    is this bape casio g shock real or not riley? I need help!



  47.  

    EmanJones,

    It's a fake. The $50 price is the biggest red flag. No real Bape should ever sell for less than $300. Most now have a fair market price of around $500. You have to be REALLY careful with Bapes because fakes probably outnumber real ones a 1000 to 1.

    They have a high retail price to begin with and usually sell out instantly. Your best bet is to buy one when a new model first goes on sale at the Bape store. The price usually only goes up from there.



  48.  

    My friend has a blue G-sport watch and i told him it was fake and i showed him this, and he threw it away and bought a real one. XD



  49.  

    i don't see casio anywhere - but my big bro got it 4 me 4 christmas - and i love the color..is there an authentic light teal g shock available.?



  50.  



  51.  

    CeciNicole,

    Sorry, but that's a fake one. There's a few different color variations of that one. No real G-Shock says "Sport" like that on the top of the LCD.



  52.  


  53.  

    slyian,

    That GLX5600 looks real. And the seller seems decent enough.



  54.  

    Hi Riley
    I THINK this one is genuine, but I'd really like your opinion before I go for it - I've had a close look at the photos attached and I hope I've learned enough to know the difference between real and fake.
    The seller appears genuine (he has very sound feedback). He's got lots of different g-shocks for sale and some are quite rare. Please let me have your opinion.

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320470117433&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    PS - this is a GREAT blog and most helpful!



  55.  

    kelvin1645,

    That link isn't working for me right now. I looked up that item number on ebay.com and I think I found that DW-9700. That seller in Japan (puresoulhide) is a good one I think. And that G-Shock looks real. It's a clear jelly model that's over 10 years old though, so watch out for condition issues. Even ones that have never been taken out the box could have problems.



  56.  

    Hello again, Riley
    Thanks for your comments on the watch (above). Unfortunately, it's getting a little pricey for me, but I found another watch being offered by the same seller (puresoulhide) that has gotr me interested. Unfortunately I can find very little information about this particular model even on THIS site (and Google) - can you help, please? Is it genuine?
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220534933117&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT



  57.  

    Hi Riley
    I hate to be a nuisance, but can you confirm something for me, please?
    If a G-shock has a reference to the (Titanium) back being made in Thailand , is it possible that the watch is genuine?
    I've seen many watches for sale that purport to be 'genuine' but on closer inspection they have the above inscription on the back. I would assume that genuine G-shocks would only have a reference to 'Japan' on the reverse. I'm confused - please help



  58.  

    hey Riley

    Can you tell me if this is real it looks pretty genuine it is a module #1659. I will comment you the pics



  59.  

    srry it is not workin i guess i do not know how to do it



  60.  

    kelvin1645,

    That DW-003 looks real too.

    Many G-Shocks are made in Thailand, so it's perfectly normal to have that stamped in the case back. Many are also made in China and a few in Korea.



  61.  


  62.  

    splku,

    That G7900 looks real enough. The seller seems to be a good one too.



  63.  

    Thank a lot riley. now to wait for my new watch to be shipped in…



  64.  

    riley is it real?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200427483335

    he does give vivid pictures



  65.  

    EmanJones,

    That seller has 10 white Bapes for sale for $40 each. What do you think?

    They're definitely fake. A fair market price for a Bape will never be below $300, unless it's really beat up or something. That seller is selling 3 packs of new ones for $130.



  66.  

    Hi there, can you tell me if this is a real G-Shock???

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220541002529&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Thanks…



  67.  

    memogp,

    That green Crazy Colors AW-582SC-3 looks real.



  68.  

    Great, and the seller seems to be a good one 2…

    Thanks!!!



  69.  

    do all real g shocks say casio on the front?



  70.  

    There's a few exceptions, but most every G-Shock says "Casio" on it somewhere. I think fake makers don't put it on there because it makes it harder to sue them for it.



  71.  

    Allright guys, I just logged onto this so you guys can look at some reasons on how to find out if a Bape G-Shock is real or not.

    1- All of the letterings around the LCD should be all white, if it's black, it's fake.
    2- Above the G button, it should say Go Ape, except on the white version of the G-Shock which says "War 21st Resist"
    3- The colors of the 3 circles should be the same color, otherwise fake. If the color of the big circle is red, it is fake.
    4- The triangle corner of the box fits very well.
    5- The design of metal backing is overall smooth and is marked, "xxx/1000".

    Again, I repeat, this is only for the Bape G-Shock.



  72.  

    Riley, I have a question about the GW-6900-1 Tough Solar Black G-Shock.

    On the steel part of it, where the clip is, is it supposed to say "Casio Japan" or "Casio China"?
    I've compared it to the real one from the website, it looks exactly like it, but I am not sure because of that.



  73.  

    "Casio Japan" or "Casio China" on the clasp can both be legit. It just depends on where it was made. Casio is making lots of the bands in China now. Even some of the the nicer models. So it's not a bad thing at all really.

    The main thing to look for is that something is engraved on the back of the metal clasp. Most fakes will have nothing or the text will be raised. The quality of the details is also much higher on real ones.

    Once you've handled a few real G-Shocks it becomes much easier to tell a knockoff. Poor quality photos are usually a bad sign. All the really good online sellers take really good closeup shots.



  74.  

    Hi Riley,
    Great site mate.
    I bought a Casio G Shock GW-810d from Topwatch in NY.
    It came in a dodgy packet with no bar code and no warrantee card.
    I emailed them to question this and they said that the packing slip is all the warrantee I need.
    The watch is obviously second hand and has grime built up around the band clasp. There's a round paper label on the back of the watch which has been worn away.
    I can't find GS 810D on the casio site. This is sounding fake. Can you confirm please (BTW I also bought a Citizen Eco Drive that I will return as well if this Casio prooves to be fake.
    Thanks



  75.  

    Doubtful,

    There's plenty of lousy watch shops out there trying to peddle poor condition G-Shocks. It could very well be real, but just a reconditioned or used watch.

    There's two different versions of the GW-810D:

    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/GW-8xx/GW-810D-1A/

    Casio doesn't do a very good job of cataloging all the models online, so I've tried to make an archive site of all of them for reference. Take a look and see if yours looks right. It sounds like you should probably seek a refund, even if it's real. G-Shocks will take all kinds of abuse, but if you pay "new" prices it's usually more fun to abuse it yourself first.

    The best way to buy a G-Shock IMO is to buy through a known good dealer like Amazon that offers good discount prices too.



  76.  

    Thanks Riley.
    Will do.



  77.  

    Riley, I was just wondering because out of all the real G-Shock's I've seen, none of them have said Casio China.

    and I saw a fake one that said Casio China.

    Anyways, thanks.



  78.  

    hey Riley, do you know where i can find a real Bape DW-6900?



  79.  

    gman,

    The best time to buy a real Bape watch is right when a new model is released. It usually takes the fake makers a little while to copy a new one. I would recommend trying to find one through a known good dealer in Japan.



  80.  


  81.  

    GG,

    Those are definitely fakes. No one would sell five different real Bape models for $169. I doubt there's more than a handful of people in the world that own 5 different Bapes.

    Any 1 real Bape can easily be $300+.



  82.  

    hi riley.. you seem to be helping a lot… i hope you can help me out here… d'you think this seller is reliable?!

    http://myworld.ebay.ph/greatvalueplus/

    i wanted to buy the white g-shock tough solar but i'm not sure if the seller posted the actual photos of the watch.. here's a link

    thanks much :)



  83.  

    reez,

    That seller seems to be selling real G-Shocks. He's in the Philippines though, so it might not make sense to order from him unless you're there in the Philippines too.



  84.  

    Wow. I hate fakes too.



  85.  

    hey riley, i saw this when i was looking online and it looked kinda iffy to me..can you help me out?



  86.  

    uptownflyyboy,

    All those Bapes on ecrater.com are fake. It looks like there are some real G-Shocks for sale on that site too though.

    Seriously guys. No decent seller is going to sell a Real Bape for like $40. It's pretty obvious.



  87.  

    okay thanks riley..if i find any other g-shock on there i will com back to you if i find anything else i like



  88.  

    Hi Riley,

    Hopefully you can help me. This looks real to me and the seller looks legit. What are your thoughts…

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Casio-G-Shock-Mudman-Mens-Watch-G-9000MC-3-G9000MC-3_W0QQitemZ390145644661QQcmdZViewItemQQptZWristwatches?hash=item5ad67e1875

    Thanks. :)



  89.  

    Jenbot,

    That's just a stock image of that camo Mudman, but the seller seems legit. It's a shame that G-Shocks are more expensive in Australia. I've seen that G-Shock on sale on Amazon.com for a much lower price in the past. The G-9000MC-3 is sort of rare now though, so it's hard to find a good deal.



  90.  

    Thanks for the quick reply! :) G-Shock prices suck the big one down under! Thank god for Karmaloop and Amazon. I better snap that baby up then.



  91.  

    umm my friend has a fake frogman titanium the orange one its completely fake we know but he claims real,we put it thru water test and dropped a couple times but nothing it was still good why?



  92.  

    Hi Riley,
    first i´d like to thank you for your effort!!!

    Could you please tell me if this is a genuine G-Shock??
    I´m a bit worried, because the metal plate says "Made in Thailand"… shouldn´t it be made in Japan? i bought this one in Germany, maybe tht´s the reason…?!



  93.  

    MoonMan,

    Some better fakes will not immediately die when dunked in water, but a lot will. Water could have still gotten inside the case though. You can freaking go scuba diving down to 600 feet deep with any real G-Shock no problem. Have your friend do a real tough test and see what happens.

    MudMan,

    That G looks real. Lots of newer G-Shock are stamped "Made in Thailand". Nothing to worry about there.



  94.  

    Hey Riley,
    I just bought this G-Shock and i dont know if its real can you please tell me

  95.  

    jmastaex,

    Sorry, but that's a fake. Notice the text "Sport" above the LCD. A real one would say "Casio" there. You can notify eBay and get a refund since it's not legit. You should also report the seller.

    These fake sellers pay like $5 for these crappy replicas, and make money foisting them on un-informed people. You should report any stores selling these and make fun of anyone wearing them. They're basically worthless.



  96.  

    Hi Riley, I was wanting to purchase a new g-shock from ebay and i needed to know your opinion on this seller?

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Casio-G-Shock-G-LIDE-Watch-GLX5600-GLX-5600-4D-red_W0QQitemZ120526203629QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches_MensWatches_GL?hash=item1c0febeaed

    Thanks!



  97.  

    cheungza,

    That G-Shock and seller seem to be legit. Just be aware that standard shipping from Hong Kong to the US can take a long time (like around 2 weeks usually).



  98.  


  99.  

    gretta,

    That Rasta DW-6900 looks good. Msgdistributors is a great seller.

    The black Bape looks good, but I don't know that seller. The price seems about right and the seller is in Japan. It looks like he specializes in other Bape stuff, so it could be OK.



  100.  

    thank you so much!



  101.  

    Hi riley
    Sorry to be a pest just bought my first g-shock from eBay and was a bit worried as the packing looks iffy




  102.  

    h8_2lose,

    That Gulfman looks real. That packaging is pretty standard for G-Shocks.



  103.  

    Thanks man value your opinion
    Think i was just a it paranoid because i bought it from eBay



  104.  

    its so great that you take the time to answer each of these comments, riley.

    anyway, hate to be pesky but could you tell me if this is authentic? i mean, they say it is but i just want to be really really sure…

    http://www.flightclubla.com/p.php?fc=la&c=g&i=991065



  105.  

    harriet,

    That G-Shock looks legit. I'm not familiar with those Fight Club shops, but it seems like the typical boutique place that would only carry real merchandise.



  106.  

    where can i get a real g-shock at stores



  107.  

    ay0o wass good bro. can you tell me the differsence between the balck and white g shock is. cause am really confusedd. i wanna buy a g shock but am affraid to buy a fake one u fell me



  108.  

    junior,

    That white Bape looks really fake. The black one is probably real, but it's a stock image. There's several different real Bape G-Shocks in various colors, but about 99% of the ones for sale are fakes. A real one should cost you at least $400 USD. Anything less than that is surely a fake. These are very rare.



  109.  

    0o damnn ok bro tkz! and where i can get gshocks that arent fake.?



  110.  

    I always check Amazon.com first.



  111.  

    Ok my friends has an S-Shock and we've all been telling him it's fake because…no one has heard of an S-Shock..Do you know if S-Shock's really exist and if his is real?



  112.  

    S-Shocks are just fake imitation G-Shocks. They might technically be legal since they slightly changed the name, but they're still pieces of crap watches.



  113.  

    Lol thanks alot for the help Riley. He's always trying to say it's real, or he doesn't care if it's fake because some people who talk about its fakeness don't have one…but now I have proof it's fake :)



  114.  

    Lol thanks alot for the help Riley. He's always trying to say it's real, or he doesn't care if it's fake because some people who talk about its fakeness don't have one…but now I have proof it's fake :)

    And I never noticed I said "my friends has one"…oops mistake

    My friend has one.

    Oh and Riley my brother is saying that if someone buys a G-Shock that's cheap, it's fake..he says real ones are about $400, are there any real ones that are cheaper, like less than $100? And do real G-Shocks have a G on the back above shock resistent, because my friens's S-Shock doesn't?



  115.  

    Real Bapes are like $400, but there's regular real G-Shocks that start around $35 on sale. The most expensive G-Shock has a retail price of about $6,000. It's a big range.

    That's why there's no excuse to buy a fake one. A real G-Shock is WAY better, and you can still get a legit one without spending too much money.

    Here's some good ones on sale right now:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=377110011&pct-off=30-99%&tag=mygsh-20&sort=relevancerank&keywords=G-Shock



  116.  

    Thanks, and one more question. Do most real G-Shocks say Casio on them?



  117.  

    Yes, all real G-Shocks should say "Casio" on them. They should also have a model number and module number engraved n the case back that you can look up to verify authenticity.



  118.  

    Ok thanks :)



  119.  

    ay0o bro las question sorry. i went to the website that u gave and ama buy this one http://www.amazon.com/G-Shock-Watch-Culture-Models-DW-6900CS-1DR/dp/B001HJ3OI8/ref=pd_sbs_watch_27 is real right? tkz alot bro. ur mad kool!



  120.  

    Yep, that DW-6900CS on Amazon should be good. I don't know that third party seller though.



  121.  

    G-Shock on Amazon

    Hey riley, i am about to buy this g shock from amazon…..don't want to get a fake one sooooooo could ya help me???????



  122.  

    That G-Shock is through a third party seller on Amazon. It's a stock image of a G-Shock, but it looks like it says they only have used ones available right now. You should be safe if you buy directly from Amazon.



  123.  

    hey riley help needed here, i have bought a new DW-6900CS-1 and i am scared it is a fake because it does not come with the normal metal tin that most people have and it came with a g shock box which are those cardboard form.and the digital wording in the watch is shiny silver rather than normal black.which i seen most people have. and it is made in thailand.plz reply me thnx. really needed help.



  124.  

    harobikefan,

    Real G-Shock can come in a variety of packaging. The LCD digits are supposed to be shiny and that's tough to fake. It's also supposed to be made in Thailand. If it says "Casio" on it too, it's probably the real deal.



  125.  

    ya it have casio printed in the back case and in the front at the top,but i got this watch really cheap,as i am living in singapore and the model that i have bought only cost me (83singapore dollars) while in the normal market price in shopping mall and the G factory in singapore they sell the same model at (137 to 139 singapore dollars),then i ask them y do they sell so cheap and,they say that they selling this watch @ wholesale price,is it true that wholesale price is so cheap????? now this is the problem that i am scared that i have bought a fake…as the price of $83 to $139 is a really big diffrence. sry for my ignorance as i am a newbie in collecting casio G shock.i would really appreciate if you can reply once more…



  126.  

    harobikefan,

    You might have just gotten a really good deal. If you post some good qulaity photos I can probably tell for sure.



  127.  

    sry i have taken a poor quality video here,but i hope u can be able to tell
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hkFEJv98lo



  128.  

    harobikefan, Everything looks real to me, but it's hard to make out all the details in that video. Put it side-by-side with a known good DW-6900 and you should be able to tell for sure. The LCDs on fakes are never as good as the real ones.



  129.  

    ooh so means that the shiny digital wording in my watch is real? coz i saw some model and they are black in colour.? sry i am too paranoid i wanna know if have i got scam :)



  130.  

    The LCD digits are mirrored on the Crazy Colors. Look here:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900CS-1/



  131.  


  132.  

    rayman1999,

    It looks real. It seems the box is for a GLX-5600 and you have a DW-6900. It's a common problem with retail shops mixing up the boxes. I mentioned it in a recent blog post.



  133.  

    omg ya i just noticed that and asked my friend he mixed them up,
    is there a way i can tell if the warranty is up? cause i dont know how long ago this thing was opened, thenew box hes giving me has the other warranty for that specific watch
    thanks alot though :)



  134.  

    You can register your warranty with Casio here:

    https://secure.prodregister.com/casio/timepieces/index.shtml

    It's pretty rare to actually need warranty service on a G-Shock though. They tend to be hard to break. :)



  135.  

    okay thank you so much i appreciate it alot



  136.  

    anyway i can delete these posts



  137.  

    sry riley, i got one question to clear up.you said that the All G-Shocks should have the word "Casio" on the face and on the back case,and should have the module and model number printed on the back case?but so what it have been printed on the back,fake watch maker could also just engraved those model and module number with the casio brand on their fake watch too right??? some fake g shocks could also have the module and model number on the back too right?



  138.  


  139.  

    Rob,

    That seller looks legit, but I've never bought from them. It seems like a safe buy, and the price is about right. They have a retail price of $99 USD here.



  140.  

    hi there,does different country have different book of instruction manual for the same model of G shock watch? or is it a same printed booklet with the same language worldwide?? my instruction manual(booklet) in singapore is alot alot more thinner than those i saw in other country,when they unbox their watch with the same model??



  141.  

    I think that a fake G-Shock isn't technically illigeal unless it says "Casio" on it, so that's why most fakes don't go that far. Some that don't care might though, but the vast majority don't even say Casio, so it's an easy way to tell.

    The owner's manual and packaging will vary, depending on where you buy it. The big thick ones include many different languages. The ones in Japan for instance look very different, and are only in Japanese.



  142.  

    riley,i wanna buy another dw6900cs for my bro's birthday.but i wanna ask you,are there 2 different kind of model for the dw6900cs in black??? as i saw one of the model, the digital digits are *(shiny silver)* while the another model has a *(black digital digit)* like most watches, without the shiny silver effect.coz i saw the european model and the another model in ur blog,and saw some of the unboxing with the different digital wording,so are there 2 different model??? coz mine is shiny silver whether is the reflection of not,so i assume that there are 2 diffrent model???



  143.  

    SRY RILEY,i think the explanation i gave above is unclear,in short wad is the diffrence between a DW-6900CS-1DR & a DW-6900CS-1ER??? IS IT THE DIGITAL WORDING IN THE WATCH GAVE THIS 2 MODEL A DIFFRENT MODEL NUMBER?



  144.  

    harobikefan,

    I'm going to have to start charging you for answers. :)
    Seriously though, it's better if you post these unrelated questions in the feedback section. I'll address any of these questions there.



  145.  

    My Gshock doesnt say casio knowhere on it!!! Is it fake?
    Where its suppose to say casio…..it says illuminator



  146.  

    Quinn,

    Post a photo to be sure. I can't say 100% of G-Shocks say "Casio" on them, and even some fakes do, but it's usually a quick and easy thing to spot. Looking up photos of the model number and having someone knowledgeable about G-Shocks is more complicated.



  147.  

    Hi Riley, just wondering if you have heard or seen any fake Casio G-Shock Gravity Defier Tough Solar G1500BD-1A yet? if so what are the differences. Cheers



  148.  

    mrboajangles,

    I haven't seen any, but there could be fakes I guess. It would be harder to make a good replica of these analog/digital models though. It should be easy to spot the fakes by comparing photos.



  149.  

    so im thinking i may have bought a fake g-shock this is very worrysome
    i ordered it from ebay, the seller says its "authentic" and its new but it comes with no packaging for some lame reason, guess that should have been my first indication, and the photos he posted have no merrit realy because i see hes using the same pics again for the same watch being sold

    did i get ripped off?

  150.  

    hans,

    The GW330A in the photo seems real, but it's very low quality image. The seller doesn't seem to be that great, so you could get a real watch, but no packaging or service if anything goes wrong.

    There's often other pitfalls to watch buying besides getting a real one. Lousy sellers might sell used or refurbished watches as new, and offer nothing in the way of customer service. That's why it's best to buy from known good dealers instead of shopping for the absolute lowest bargain price.



  151.  

    thanks for your reply. wish i would have paid a few more dollars and bought somewhere more reputable. also when searching this model of watch i only see it in gold, and the one i bought has silver bezel. yes the photos are fuzzy and the kicker is he re-uses the same photos for multiple auctions wich i didnt realize till after the fact.
    also the reasoning behind there being no packaging dosnt realy make sense

    ill post some pics of the actual watch once i receive it, my loss i guess

    thanks for your input



  152.  

    riley i bet you have view my dw-6900cs in black before? may i noe why the backlight or light is so much brighter or more to the dark green compare to the other dw-6900cs in black,as you said that "Fakes often use a very cheap LCD that stands out when compared to an authentic model." so do you think mine is a fake??? because i feel that the light stand out as it is very dark green in colour so have i bought a fake one? video here>>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8njpK1vaS9U

    heres the pic on the backlight sorry for the poor quality but it looks more dark green in real life.will it be a fake???



  154.  

    Hey i was wondering if this watch is legit or not. I think it is but I would like your opinion. Thanks. Ps this blog is awesome

  155.  

    Does A G-Shock Have To Have Casio Anywhere On The Watch??



  156.  

    ereotav,

    That G-Shock might be real, but he pics are really bad and it looks used. I would never buy a used white G. They can can get discolored and there's no way to get rid of it.

    KiddKidd,

    Except for a very few limited edition special releases all G-Shocks should say "Casio" on them somewhere. It's usually not bery big print though.



  157.  

    ok so got my gshock today, tell me what you think… fake ? or real?



  158.  


  159.  

    pistolp12052,

    msgdistributors is one one of the best eBay sellers in the US. I've bought from him with no problems and so have many other G-Shock collectors. You won't have to worry about fakes from him.



  160.  

    i bought this item about a week ago and i got it today is this a fake…. i got pics if u want me to put em up http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320498013081&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
    p.s. and one more thing…the backlight shuts off in about 3-4 seconds right?



  161.  

    Scotty401,

    That's a stock image of a real G7900A-4. I don't know that seller topbranditems, but they seem like a typical mediocre high volume eBay dealer. You'll probably get a real G-Shock. Just don't expect much in the way of service if something goes wrong. $84 shipped does seem to be the rock bottom lowest price right now for this watch.

    Check out this page of the manual for how the EL works:
    http://watchshock.com/casio-manual/3194/3

    The time the backlight is on can be set to either 3 or 5 seconds.



  162.  

    so ur saying its probably real…..do u want pics?



  163.  

    There's no way to tell if a seller has the real deal or not if they're using stock images. You just have to look at their reputation. Really good dealers will take photos of the actual watch for sale, but big retailers don't' bother.

    You can post some photos of the actual watch, and I can confirm its authenticity for you.



  164.  

    wat u think?



  165.  

    Scotty401,

    It looks real. You got a good one. It has all the stuff you should look for. The packaging can vary though.



  166.  

    I'm relieved because ebay is very fishy….i've never ordered something that expensive b4…so im glad i got a real one…..one thing i was worried about was the case and i saw the comment u wrote wen u sed companys buy the cheap packaging and i was hoping for the tin but its all good….so do u kno any ebay sellers who have cheap g shocks w/ the tins and are 100% reliable



  167.  

    Amazon.com is the best G-Shock seller for the money IMO. Amazon's prices jump around a lot, so you have to keep an eye out for the really good deals. The higher quality sellers are always going to charge a little more on eBay. Msgdistributors is about the only eBay seller I can really recommend, but his prices are not the cheapest.



  168.  

    so amazon is 100% legit and i also seen a red g-lide for onle like 75 wen retil is a 100 on msgdistributors



  169.  

    well thank for everything and kepp doing ur thing…have a goodnight



  170.  

    Hi…im trying to buy a G-SHOCK for some ones BDAY and needed to know more about the BAPE watches… what are the specific features that are suppose to be on the watch….

    HERES THE PICTURE….

    ANOTHER QUESTION…SO THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SPORTS GSHOCK?!?!?

    my email: jwoolbright1@student.gsu.edu



  171.  

    jwoolbright,

    Please don't buy a Bape unless you really know what you're doing. 99.9% of Bapes on eBay are fake and it's really hard to tell which ones are real sometimes. If you give me a link to the eBay auction, I'll try to tell you if it's legit. Real ones should be around $500 at least. They are extremely rare new in the box.

    All of the DW-6900 Bapes have the 1289 module. You can read the full owner's manual for it here:
    http://watchshock.com/casio-manual/1289/

    All the G-Shocks that say "Sport" at the top instead of "Casio" are fakes.



  172.  

    hey riley im lookin at amazon, and the g-lide is from dexclusive , is this legit for a low price? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001A62MJA/ref=ox_ya_os_product#moreAboutThisProduct
    i just ordered i hope they let me return it if it's a fake.



  173.  

    sophanvick,

    That watch looks legit. It's "Sold by Dexclusive and Fulfilled by Amazon", so you should be safe. They have a really good rating.

    That price is really good, but it's not way out of line. That's why I like Amazon. The Free Shipping on Amazon is a great deal too.



  174.  

    Yo Riley, this website's sick.

    Can you let me know if any of these are fake?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280475469219&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370322223454&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250584646338&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    thanks. I know a lot of them don't have the actual watch, but just wondering what your thoughts on these are.



  175.  

    ^^^I meant "picture of the actual watch"



  176.  

    microboi,

    All 3 auctions are using stock images of a DW-5600MS-1. It's hard for me to say more than that. You should check out each seller and see if they are trustworthy. Neither seller has too many red flags, but after a quick look it looks like one is probably better than the other overall, and no surprise, has a slightly higher price.



  177.  

    Hi Riley, I was wondering if you could give your opinion on the authenticity of this product? http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260513249882&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    Cheers

    That G-9200MS looks real enough. I don't know the seller though.



  179.  

    Thank's for that Riley, I wasn't sure as there are a couple of differences in models which appear to be genuine. The differences I'm referring to are 1. At the top where it says "Casio 20 bar" some images have "multi band 6" while others have "Full Auto El Light", 2. Just underneath the time display some images show "SNZ ALM SIG MUTE A.EL" while others show this area as blank with no writing at all, and 3. Just above the time some images have "Receiving indicator" printed while others do not. It's these differences combined with this website make me a little apprehensive about buying one off the net.

  180.  

    Dezza,

    They are two different models. The GW-9200 is atomic and the G-9200 is not.



  181.  

    Oh, Ok then far out I should've noticed that, well thank's again for the info it's certainly put my mind at ease, now I just have to choose which Riseman to get lol. Cheers Riley



  182.  

    Thanks Riley, I'm going to go with the auction one and try to win it for cheaper. they "say" it is really authentic and they have a return policy. This is an awesome website btw. Hope you're getting paid by casio to do this. It's subliminally making me want to buy more.



  183.  

    Hey, Riley. Just discovered this site.

    I bought a Casio Gshock directly from Amazon and the backplate says made in China.
    Is my watch legit? It is the model: DW 5600E 1V

    Also, is the top left button on the watch supposed to be pushed in, or further in than the other buttons? This is not a defect of any kind, is it?

    Thanks.



  184.  

    lyckantropen,

    It's normal for some G-Shocks to be stamped "Made in China". And yes, the Adjust button is supposed to be sunken in slightly more. That's so it's not easy to hit accidentally. Yours is probably the real deal.



  185.  

    Pretty sure it's real, wanted to check with you guys?



  186.  

    destroythesouth,

    That GLX5600 looks real. You're good.



  187.  

    does wal-mart sell real g- shocks because i saw one for 47.88 here's the link

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/G-Shock-Illuminating-Watch/894296



  188.  

    devantehh,

    Wal-Mart is a safe place to buy real G-Shocks. They usually have the best prices for brick and mortar stores, but the selection isn't too great. Amazon will usually have them for less, if you don't mind waiting.

    Same one for $13 less ($35).



  189.  

    thank you so much i will buy this one in stead i just want a real one so nobody can say it's fake



  190.  

    hey riley can you sell me a g-shock because i dont that much money and i need one bad! please?



  191.  

    Sorry taeee, but I don't sell G-Shocks. Maybe some day.



  192.  

    Do these sites sell real G-shocks? : http://bit.ly/dqZmFi and http://bit.ly/dluQzB



  193.  

    is real or not



  194.  

    skull,

    You can't post a photo from your local computer here. Upload it to Photobucket or something, so we can see it, and I'll tell you if it's real.



  195.  

    hi there,
    I've just bought a G-Shock HyperColor GA-100B-2 from here http://www.superchrono.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_25&products_id=2954

    I'm concerned it might not be authentic.
    The watch looks of very high quality, but the code on the rear of the watch (5416) is not coming up on a manual search (manual delivered is in Japanese).
    Everything else looks really good (although the colour is less 'Blue' than pics online, more 'Acqua').

    The packaging in particular has me questioning (Plain black, some 'G-Shock' branding but no Casio).

    Any tips on what to look for on these watches to spot a fake?
    Any idea what the boxes should look like?

    m



  196.  

    mjbsx,

    Superchrono seems to be a legit seller, but I've never bought from them. This model is only available in Japan right now and there's not an English version of the manual yet. And the Japanese packaging is different. I think your safe.



  197.  

    thanks for the speedy response.
    here are some pics for anyone else who's interested.

  198.  

    Dear Riley,

    You've been such a help to everyone here. I would be grateful for your help too. I just bought a G-5600E tough solar model off ebay from the vendor skynet_sg. The watch came in a cardboard box (no stand) with a warranty booklet. I've attached images - really sorry about the poor quality of the rear of the watch, I just couldn't seem to get that right. The rear states "CASIO 3160 G-5600E" and "MADE IN THAILAND Y" among other things. Please let me know if the watch looks legit. Thanks very much in advance.



  199.  

    deepakrn,

    That G-Shock looks real. It has all the right details you want to look for.



  200.  

    Dear Riley - thanks so very much again, I really appreciate it.



  201.  

    Hi Riley, can you tell me if this gshock is real or not? And if you ever made buisness with this guy before?? Thanks a lot, here's the link

  202.  

    sebspeed,

    The G-Shock in those photos looks real. I don't know anything about that eBay seller though.



  203.  

    hey i wanted to buy a g-shock from amazon but im not sure if its real. can you help me out?

  204.  

    racheekins,

    It's a stock image of a real G-Shock. It's for sale by a third party seller named MrWatch that I've never heard of before. Just check their rating, and you should be alright.



  205.  

    oh yah, cuz theres other pics maybe you didnt see but thanks the ratings were good..
    here it is so you dont have to go back



  206.  


  207.  

    drop,

    That seller bbtiesto is known to sell real G-Shocks, and that one looks real. Just look out for condition issues. He's been known to downplay issues with used watches.



  208.  

    i was wondering if this dw-69000cs was legit


    and if its not too much i wanted to know if these were all legit to buy.

    appreciate it riley.



  209.  

    petershypee,

    That DW-6900 looks real. Amazon is a safe place to buy G-Shocks.



  210.  

    appreciate it my man, let me know if you ever need legit checks on jordans or sbs aha.
    if your into those i mean.



  211.  

    sorry 1 more.


    for $80 meetup, good deal in your opinion.? no major flaws just some ink blend on the wrist strap.



  212.  

    That one looks good too. White ones are hard to keep clean. It's a good deal if you think so.



  213.  

    riley i got a g shock but dont kno if its real the modole number is dw 9052 2vdr



  214.  

    moneymakinJay,

    That's a real G-Shock model number.

    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-9xxx/DW-9052-2V/

    Check and make sure it says "Casio" on it.



  215.  

    thanks riley it says casio the ding dat gets me feliing wierd about it says made in china



  216.  

    See above.

    Lots of real G-Shocks are "Made in China".



  217.  

    so its real



  218.  

    hey riley, i just bought a g shock off ebay. the seller has really good feedback and is a top rated seller but i just want to get your opinion aswell.

    i also found a video of a kid with the same watch and he got it from hong kong too. could you just let me know what you think. thanks! (he takes forever opening it though!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhAc7o_32so



  219.  

    the1henry,

    That AW-591SC looks good. I don't know that seller though. The one in the video seems real.



  220.  

    hey riley, had a quick question.
    i recieved my g shock and the adjust button on my dw-6900cs is pushed in more than the other buttons. is that how its made or is it damaged.?



  221.  

    petershypee,

    The Adjust button is supposed to be shorter than the other ones. It's so you don't hit it accidentally.



  222.  

    hey Riley,

    I Just recieved my G-shock mini on ebay and Im kind of worried its fake. Heres who I got it from
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140397579101
    and this is there website
    http://www.ogt-clan.com/products/detail.php?product_id=263
    Could you please tell me if these are fake or not



  223.  

    JJC,

    It looks real. I've bought from ogt-clan and they seem to be a good seller based in Japan. You should be good.



  224.  

    Riley,

    Thanks I feel more confident but I was wondering if you could tell me some things to watch out for on the mini g shocks. There is a lot of talk about fake G shocks but not the mini. Another thing I want to add is the band is a rubber feel unlike the smooth and shiney other G shock bands, the design on the band is slightly different, and the metal piece that holds the band together is a little loss unlike my other G shocks (Glide and DW-6900 ) is this a problem? I would greatly appreciate your help



  225.  

    Riley,
    I'm interested in buying my first G-shock. Can you look at two links for me.
    I've found a website called 80's purple, do you know anything about it?
    http://www.80spurple.com/shop/product/110040/5660/g-shock-men-s-dw6900cs-watch-black-lime

    Also, This seller on Ebay has a lot of good feedback and the pictures look legit. Will i be safe?
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Casio-G-Shock-Watch-DW6900CS-DW-6900CS-1D_W0QQitemZ110512934397QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAU_Watches?hash=item19bb158dfd

    Any info you can give me will help, Thanks.



  226.  

    I don't think I've ever seen a fake G-Shock Mini. You don't see too many at all of them in the US really. I don't know what else to tell you.

    samAU,

    Both of those look real. I don't know either seller though.



  227.  

    Cool.
    Another thing, you mentioned above that msgdistributors was a good seller on ebay.
    This item's image is stock, is it safe to buy it? Or am i better of buying something with good images.
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/NEW-CASIO-SOLAR-ATOMIC-G-SHOCK-GWM5600A-7-WHITE-WATCH_W0QQitemZ200459412994QQcmdZViewItemQQptZWristwatches?hash=item2eac4fe602

    Lastly, the GW-M5600A-7 has Multi-Band 5 Atomic Timekeeping. Is that useless for me because i'm in Australia? Would it be just the same as getting the G-5600A-7?



  228.  

    Yes, msgdistributors is a really good seller. It's just lazy of him to only use a stock image.



  229.  

    hey Riley,do you think this website has real g shock ?
    i worry that what if i get the fake one so can you please check it

    http://www.chronograph-divers-watches.com/shop/casio-gshock-watches-c-81.html

    and i want o get this one from this website

    http://www.chronograph-divers-watches.com/shop/casio-gshock-analogdigital-world-time-watch-aw5912adr-aw591-p-2512.html



  230.  


  231.  

    jkim0021and MuTako,

    I've never heard of those sellers. The G-Shocks in the photos look real, but I'd be careful buying from either one of those. I'd much prefer a more reputable seller.



  232.  

    these look real fake to me for some reason, are they legit.?



  233.  

    petershypee,

    Those all look fake. Stay away.



  234.  

    Riley then where should i buy it
    Can you tell me where i can buy it
    and is that a good watch?



  235.  

    gotta really strong feeling it's fake. i do have a white g shock i know is real. but i just got this one and i've seen a real frogman, the LED doesn't have the frog either. jus put my outta misery.. and tell me it's fake

    and



  236.  

    jkim0021,

    Check out Amazon or if they don't have it look for a seller on eBay that has a good reputation selling G-Shocks.

    ejcjpj,

    I can't see those photos. Try again and I'll see if it's real.



  237.  


  238.  

    g-shock-for-life,

    That's a stock image of a real G-9100BL Gulfman. The seller seems legit enough. Just be aware that shipping from Hong Kong can take a really long time. You also might want to check on exactly what packaging comes with this watch (if it matters to you). Some of these discount overseas sellers will not include the original box or manual.



  239.  

    http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/jwl/1715007443.html

    are these real?
    some oneplease lemme know



  240.  

    shradge,

    Those are all definitely fakes. Note the conspicuous lack of "Casio" text anywhere on them.

    That's the first time I've seen them for sale on Craigslist, but it's not surprising.



  241.  

    thanks alot dude.
    i was gonna meet with that guy and purchase them.
    definately not any more.



  242.  

    riley i really need to know if this g shock is legit



  243.  


  244.  

    ibashir,

    That DW6900 is real. It's for sale directly through Amazon, so you should be safe.



  245.  

    thanks . bro



  246.

    It´s quite cheap even for an used one, It seems legit to me, but I´m not sure. Could you take a look Riley?
    Thank you



  247.  

    pacosoco,

    That Final Frogman looks real. I don't know about that seller though. It looks like he has zero feedback as a seller. You should be careful, especially if the price seems to good to be true.



  248.  

    thank you Riley for your quick answer. You have noticed the same fact as me, that of the zero feedback as a seller. I have looked at the other items he is offering in ebay and they all have in common that are used but mint condition. It looks too cheap though, but…It is used…so it may be not so cheap after all..being solar is other point (no need to open the watch to change battery)
    Whatever, thank you again for your help



  249.  

    Hey Riley mind doing a check for me?




    (I think he gave me the wrong box-_-!)

    And i know this is off topic, but what do you think of this watch? haha! thanks in advance!



  250.  

    did my last post get posted? i cant see it



  251.  

    duhrell,

    That G-7900 looks real, but I can't view most of the pics.



  252.  

    Riley,
    Thanks for the response, Im pretty sure its real too since the stand i bought it from is on the official g shock website. Quick question, was my g-7900a suppose to come in the tin case? The guy gave me a the paper box and im pretty sure thtas not the right case because it has the wrong serial number and the watch is loose when put in.



  253.  

    It's common for retailers to mix up the boxes G-Shocks come in. Some will come in tins at one place, but not another. There should be a full model number on the cardboard box. If it doesn't match up then, you probably got the wrong box.



  254.  

    Yep it definitely doesn't match the watch i have lol. thanks for the info. Know any places where i can buy good g shocks in cali (central valley area), like the ltd ones?



  255.  

    riley, my dad wants to buy me The Centurion Series Custom G-Shock Bezels by ZShock custom black diamond series for $1,195.00 for my 13th birthday and he wants to know if its legit. i told him that all types of stars wear them like chris brown, bow wow, john legend, and many others wear them but he really wants to make sure. it has all the qualities and details for a real g-shock, so can you please look at the site and look at the model.

    www.ZShock.com>>Mens Watch Collection>>The Centurion Series Custom G-Shock Bezels by ZShock.

    thank you and i trust that your expert advice will be accurate just like they always are.
    please comment back fast!

  256.  

    jay-jay555,

    I've never dealt with Zshock myself, but I've heard mixed feedback from others. They spent a lot of money promoting their products with celebrities. The main complaint was that the quality of their products doesn't match their price. I don't know of anyone else to recommend for this type of thing, but maybe Tyko Moon could hook you up with something.



  257.  


  258.  

    MuTako,

    That AW-591 G-Shock looks real.



  259.  


  260.  

    Hey Guys,

    Im new here and to the G-shock world. Im just a bit confused….i live in Thailand and some codes are different from what I see in the interenet sites…so I would appreciate your opinions or knowledge.
    GA-110B-2JF ….in Thailand they end with DR instead of JF. Is there a difference on the product or what? check this site:
    http://www.veladeedee.com/watch/productDetail.php?id_prd=1234
    THX GUYS



  261.  

    petershypee,

    Those are real DW-6900CB G-Shocks, but I don't know about that seller.

    thedevil,

    JF is for Japanese Domestic Market releases, and DR is for export ones. The G-Shocks are exactly the same, but the packaging will vary between them.



  262.  

    Hi Riley,

    Im interested in purchasing this G-shock off of eBay, the seller is lastming, he/she seems to have quite a large variety of g-shocks at low prices and I'm not 100% on the authenticity of the watches. Here is the link of the watch im interested in-
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/SUPREME-BAPE-CASIO-APE-DW-6900-G-Shock-WATCH-White-New-/170438816576?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Wristwatches&hash=item27aef1f340

    Thanks alot in advance, your a real money-saver!



  263.  

    mitchl,

    That's definitely a fake Bape. You're not going to find a new real one for $40. Stay away from that seller.



  264.  

    YO RiLEY from what ive learned from you showing how to spot a fake this looks fake to me…no casio or model number, box nothing….is it fake or real…..need ur input bro…im trying to buy a real gshock watch that i would like.some pointers on where to get 1 for cheap….???



  265.  

    hi i just started to like g-shocks and i saw a nice red 1 that looks exactly the same as the fake mu d man shown at the beginning at this page but the metal plate at the back is the same as the as the g-shock petershypee posted.it doesn't have the capital letter g at the top of the shock resist.pls help me determine if its fake or not



  266.  

    oh and let me also add that it dosent get spoilt



  267.  

    cballer562,

    That red "G-Shock" is totally fake.

    roda-darwiche,

    If it looks like one of the photos above, then it's probably fake. Post a photo if you'd like to be sure. See here for some real Mudman pics:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/Mudman/G-9000-1/



  268.  

    WOOOOOOW THOSE G-SHOCKS R SOOO DIFFERENT N NOW I CAN DEFINATELY SAY THAT THE RED 1S I SAW R A FAKE



  269.  

    Is this DW6900-1V Real?

    i found it on the walmart website. Are G-shocks from walmart real??

    plz help thanks.

    here's the website URL.
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Casio-Men-s-G-Shock-Digital-Watch/1192371#ProductDetail



  270.  

    zube83,

    It should be safe to buy from Walmart. They have real G-Shocks, and the prices are good. They just don't have many limited editions or anything.



  271.  

    hey Riley,

    I noticed Alot Of Transformers G-Shocks Floating Around And It Just Seems Fishy To Me. Does Casio Really Make Them?



  272.  

    Dtony49,

    Casio did make a pair of Transformers G-Shocks a few years ago. They are very rare though and expensive. There's lots of fakes because of this, so be very careful.

    Here's the real ones:

    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-5xxx/DW-5600VT_Cybertron/
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900FS_Destron/



  273.  

    Riley, 1st you are the man, your site is awesome and I'm glad I found it. I found a site selling the DW-900LR-9A. The site and your pics dont show that there is a "Casio" logo on the face but on the Casio website there is "Casio" written below the LCD screen. On yours its says "times are a changing". Am I too assume the one without "Casio" on it is real? Thx. hope my question was to confusingly worded. http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900LR-9A/



  274.  

    RunShawBros,

    Good catch. I think there might be two different versions of the LRG DW-6900. I know Kronos who posted the eral life photos, and I'm sure he bought a real one. The "times are a changing" one is real. There are a very few collaboration models that don't say Casio anywhere on the front. Looking at the case back should tell you for sure. A real G-Shock expert should be able to spot the inferior LCDs in a fake too.

    I would still be very careful buying one from anyone other than LRG or a VERY reputable seller.



  275.  

    Hi Riley, impressive site and knowledge about THE watch ! Thanks ,very helpfull.
    Would you know if this guy on e bay sell real ones ? Best,

    http://stores.shop.ebay.fr/Central-Club__W0QQ_sidZ93044889QQ_trksidZp4634Q2ec0Q2em14?_pgn=3



  276.  

    Zed,

    That Central Club seller seems to be legit, but I've never heard of them. They are using all stock images.



  277.  


  278.  

    Itzmike23,

    That's a stock image of a real one. That seller doesn't look so good though. They don't seem to sell that many watches, and they have some negative feedback.



  279.  


  280.  

    itzmike23,

    Those two are stock images of a real G-Shock. I can't vouch for the sellers though.



  281.  

    hey riley have you ever seen a fake g shock glide glx-5600? thanks



  282.

    itzmike23,

    There's probably some fake GLX5600s out there somewhere. That green one seems real, but it's a lousy photo.

    joshy,

    Those look real. Premierworld seems to be a seller that specializes in selling watches at least, but they don't seem to have great customer service.



  285.  


  286.  

    J-Shock,

    That's a fake Bape. A real one is not going to cost $12. Expect to pay $200 or more for a real one.



  287.  

    hey riley.

    ive just gotten in this gshock madness.

    i got this without doin my research before gettin it just now, so can you help me check it out? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250642218381&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_5594wt_907

    one more thing i also ordered a playcloths x gshock from play cloths website, cant seem to find em anywhere else besides mickens, he's selling it for 300 shipped and on pcs website it says 190w/o shipping. kinda weird to me. Im assuming that its def legit since i got it from their own website but can i go wrong? http://playcloths.mybigcommerce.com/products/P%252dShock-%28Formula-One%29.html i kknow its kinda dumb to ask but if you campare the pics with other blog/video reviews the pics on the website is wagg. lol.

    thank you so much. and great site youve here.



  288.  


  289.  

    kevinmastermind,

    Those Kiks Tyos look legit. I've never heard of that seller before. They are from Japan though. I don't know about buying the Play Cloths one right now. It's almost always best to buy straight from the company.



  290.  

    Thanks for your reply riley. appreciate it!



  291.  

    Hey Riley Could you plz tell me if this is real, Heres the link:
    http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190403504264&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT



  292.  

    kamran,

    That DW-6900-1 G-Shock looks real, but it's a used refurbished one. I would just buy a new one for around $40.



  293.  

    hey i just ordered this g-shock off amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001KZRMAK/ref=oss_product from "Mr Watch" this is gonna be my first one when it comes it, is Mr Watch legit??



  294.  

    ImkindaMajor,

    I don't know "MrWatch", but usually Amazon sellers are pretty good. You can check their rating on there. I prefer buying directly from Amazon, but sometimes they don't have it.



  295.  


  296.  

    h2oxx,

    Those two are both fake MT-G G-Shocks!

    Stay away from those eBay sellers goldxuan8 and houn_glivo. They both seem to be located in Hong Kong.



  297.  

    Hey there riley its me again!

    Im up for my next pickup and its a red bape. the most risky one. can you pls check it out? Appreciate it.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250648134862&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT#ht_2395wt_1133



  298.  

    kevinmastermind,

    That seller americorp-n-trade seems to be selling a bunch of sub $100 Bapes. I would stay far away from him. They must be fakes.



  299.  

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GAYQL8/ref=oss_product is this real. it says made in china and shock Resistance in the middle.



  300.  

    Yen2dro3,

    That's real. You'll be safe buying directly from Amazon.



  301.  

    Hey !

    Just want to know if my G Shock isn't a fake ( strange box )


    Thanks ;)



  302.  

    p0ulet,

    That G-9100 Gulfman looks real. That's a normal G-Shock box that lots of regular models come in.



  303.  

    Ok thanks ! ;)
    Do you know where I can find a bezel for my gulfman ? ( I want to make a custom model )



  304.  

    You can find details on Casio G-Shock parts dealers here:

    http://mygshock.com/wiki/Parts%2C_Tools%2C_and_Supplies#Casio_Parts_Dealers



  305.  


  306.  

    ali29,

    Those are all fakes. Stay far away from any of those sellers. You're not going to find a super rare new G-Shock on ebay for $20. A real G-Shock starts at about $40 on Amazon. And that's just for a plain black DW-5600 or DW-6900. Stay with the reputable sellers.



  307.  

    thank you =)



  308.  


  309.  

    ali29,

    Those look good. Amazon is usually really safe. Just be a little careful if it's a third party seller using their service.



  310.  

    Hi can you check if this is genuine?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280514559398&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp3907.m570.l1313%26_nkw%3D280514559398%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

    Also it concerns me that on the back it says made in thailand but on the metal clasp (not sure what its called) it sasys casio japan

    thanks.



  311.  

    izpirikitik,

    That Gulfman looks good. It's supposed to be made in Thailand. I don't know that seller though.



  312.  

    thanks riley,

    but im confused about the made in thailand at the back then when it comes to the clasp.. it says "Casio Japan" is that all good?



  313.  

    The watch is made in Thailand and the band is made in Japan. It's not that unusual. Casio makes some things in China and Korea too.



  314.  


  315.  

    izpirikitik,

    That's a stock image of a real GA100 G-Shock. That seller superchronosuperchrono doesn't have the best feedback though.



  316.  

    thanks riley.. i will post some pictures as soon as i get it



  317.  

    Hi Riley..

    i got the watch today and here are the pictures…

    at the back it shows:

    JAPAN MOV ' T Y CASED IN THAILAND

    What does this mean? Is it genuine?









  318.  

    Hi Riley.. i got the watch today and here are the pictures…

    at the back it shows:

    JAPAN MOV ' T Y CASED IN THAILAND

    What does this mean? Is it genuine?

    And also please enlighten me about the other two small circles on the face of the watch..it does not show anything..see picture. (do i have to set something up)









  319.  

    izpirikitik,

    That GA-100 looks good. :-!



  320.  

    Thanks Riley..

    what about the other two small circles on the face of the watch..it does not show anything..(do i have to set something up)



  321.  

    It's a negative LCD and it looks like nothing is in the rings until you put it into a different mode or something. Play around with the alarm or sync maybe to see. You'll have to read the manual.



  322.  

    Riley, I have a heads up on spotting some very well done fakes. The post on april 08 by petershypee is a fake g-shock. I figured this out because I own a real GW-6900A and just bought what I thought was the black version of the same watch that turned out to be a fake just like that one. The first sign is it came in a different box and the instruction book is larger than my real ones. This is what first got me suspicious. Then looking on the watch, you will see that it says shock resist. On the real watch on the website and on my real one it says multi band 6. Also on the face the fake one has revolution and forward, while the real one only has rev and fwd/receiving. Going to the back of the watch and looking at the model number. Petershypee’s picture example has the product number as G-6900A but the real one has GW-6900A. On the fake I purchased off amazon, it only says G-6900. I bought my fake watch for about half price of full price. Be carefully buying off amazon for cheap and keep an eye for these fakes.



  323.  

    One more thing i noticed on the back of the user's guide, the fake one doens't have the U.S. pat number as the real one does. That is the type of thing that will always be missing in a fake unless they want to get in real trouble.



  324.  

    frofro333,

    Thanks for the effort, but I don't think you're correct on all of that. Petershypee's watch is a non-atomic G-6900A-7DR. The atomic version is the GW-6900A-7DR. That explains the differences between each of these.



  325.  

    Yup your right, on the amazon one i was sold it showed a picture of the multi band and i was sent a shock resist so is this watch still solar powered? But just doesn't auto correct the time?



  326.  

    Hey, please will you look at this item for me : http://www.dhgate.com/p_ff808081260d3f3201262420eb767460.html

    The seller claims its genuine but im not sure.

    thanks



  327.  

    BENk,

    Stay away from that dhgate.com site. They sell a whole bunch of fakes.

    You are not going to find a real Bape G-Shock for $20.



  328.  

    Haha thought so, just sort of confused because all the sellers on there tell you if its a replica, but this is advertised as a genuine, also it says it will have serial number out of 2000, xxxx/2000, Could this mean they are real or just another decoy?

    cheers



  329.  

    found this on craigslist in my city. is it real? thank you.



  330.  

    gpiejai,

    It's most likely fake. It's hard to say for sure from that photo. I would never buy a Bape from some random guy on craigslist. There must be thousands of fakes out there for every real one.



  331.  

    can you look at this item for me and tell me if its real or fake..

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220627668641&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    i sent the guy 2 messages no reply..

    thanks



  332.  

    Adam-G,

    That's a stock image of a real GLX5600 G-Shock. I don't know that seller litso_101. Their feedback isn't too good and they are based in Hong Kong. You should probably look for a more well known seller with better feedback if possible.



  333.  

    ok thanks, would you be able to help me find one? because i dont want to pay too much and that seemed a reasonable price!

    and i read hes feedback before and the bad feedback wasnt anything about the watches so..



  334.  


  335.  

    would they ship it to UK? or isit just american



  336.  


  337.  

    razon,

    That DW6900 looks real. I would just buy a new one on Amazon for $45 though.



  338.  

    Hey Riley can u tell me if a " S-Shock" is real ?
    and can you give me background info on ELECTRO LUMINESCENCE because it wus on the strap on my watch ….

    THANKS MR.4



  339.  

    mr4,

    S-Shocks are definitely not real G-Shocks.



  340.  

    Thanks Riley…

    Wut do you know abouot ELECTRO LUMINESCENCE ? & I was on youtube and dis dude wus showing his collection an he had an LRG GShock……do u know where i could find one and how much ?

    THANKS MR4



  341.  


  342.  

    kellz43,

    That looks like a fake.



  343.  

    thx. do u think i could get away with wearing it w/o it being "tht" noticible?



  344.  

    Don't buy a fake. You'll look like an idiot and the thing will break easily.



  345.  

    can u give me the page for the glx5600 black g-shock—–the page to change the how long the light stays on



  346.  

    Post all general questions in the forum here:

    http://mygshock.com/forums/

    And I'll answer them there.



  347.  

    ok, so i see sum pretty cute " g shocks " on ebay and am wondering if they are real.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320555914182&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_3803wt_9Axis Snowblades Mini Skis Snow Blades 90cm72
    the seller also has more, with diff color wristbands
    i'm guessing u will tell me totally fake



  348.  

    Bruuv plz cn u send me a link to the page to get a dw69000 for $45 and can u chek if this is real…. Thanks a million



  349.  

    trying2know,

    That "Sport" G is totally fake. I would stay away from that seller watch-international if they're selling fakes.

    vennyy,

    You can find the DW6900 on Amazon for $45 shipped here:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=377110011&pct-off=30-99%&tag=mygsh-20&sort=relevancerank&keywords=DW6900



  350.  

    Hey riley is this one real?



  351.  

    hey sorry my photos wont work for some reason but i bought it at a store and i cant tell if its fake. its white and it has the red G symbol on the bottom and it says protection at the top. the letters on the lcd are all white and the 3 circles are blinking and they always have a space between them. on the band it says "ape shall never kill ape" ( that got me worried) it doesnt have casio on the watch though….if u could help that would be great! if its fake i'm getting my money back lol thanks riley!



  352.  

    neilus,

    If you bought a Bape G-Shock and paid less than $200, there's a 99% chance it's fake. I can't say for sure without seeing pics, but these are very rare and most are fakes.



  353.  

    i found a pic of wat it kind of looks like…..but mine says protection on the top with a red G symbol on the bottom, on the lcd it says shock resist at the top but doesnt say casio anywhere. all my circles are the same color.



  354.  



  355.  

    sorry its not workin for some reason but it looks like the G-Shock DW6900FS-8….i stated the differences between mine and that one above. if u want to see it the website is

    http://www.tillys.com/tillys/variants.aspx?cid=1040&ctlg=010_Guys&prod=156339150&source=15utm_source=CSE&utm_medium=CSE&utm_campaign=Shopping



  356.  

    The Tillys one is legit. It should be safe to buy from major stores like that. I can't really say about another one that's different with no photo.



  357.  

    Hey Riley, does this posting look legit?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360283866474&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    He has a high rating, but im kinda wary since he doesnt have pictures of the actual watch, just stock pictures. I messaged him for pictures, hopefully i can get em so i can tell for sure.

    - thanks



  358.  

    josel,

    That's a stock image of a real GLX5600 G-Shock. I don't know about that seller though. I'm always a little wary of sellers that don't specialize in watches.



  359.  

    alright, I found someone selling the same watch who specializes in them now, and he has a 2x money back guarantee that its real! thanks so much for the advice =D

    here's the posting

    http://cgi.ebay.com/CASIO-G-Shock-G-Lide-GLX5600-7-GLX-5600-7DR-Free-Ship-/190421139774?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Wristwatches&hash=item2c55fc013e



  360.  

    Hi Riley

    Could you take a look at this one:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120598556040&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_1580wt_1137
    I realy like the design but i'm not sure it's real!!

    Also i did ask him this:

    Are those G-shock watches real casio's?
    Not fake ones?

    And he said: item from the original manufacturers orders.

    Soo i really doubt it!

    Thanks very much Riley!



  361.  

    bobbybrand,

    That's a fake. There's no real Frogman with analog hands. And you're not going to be able to buy a real Frogman for $19. They are going to start at around $200.



  362.  

    allright, thanks!

    i really like the watch. :(
    are the fake ones really crappy? or just not that good?



  363.  

    hey, riley im realy trying to buy a white g-shock but i had a lot of white fake ones and they just faded and they looked kind of dingy and a little brownish color so im tryin to ask someone who knows what there talking about so my question is… do real white g-shocks get dirty or do they still stay white for a long amount of time?



  364.  

    Hey, riley im looking for a white g-shock and also one that's not a fake…so i looked at casio's site and found one i liked http://www.casio.com/products/timepiece/g-shock/G7900_Series/ . Im a first time buyer and i dont know too much about what sites are legit, so do you think this would be a good site to buy from. sorry if it's a stupid question, i just dont want to purchase a fake one



  365.  

    loldatkiddere1,

    Real white G-Shocks do get dirty, but glossy ones are a little better. It's just the nature of the material. Fake ones will of course be of worse quality.

    N09,

    It's definitely safe to buy directly from Casio. That must be the safest place to buy them. Amazon usually has much better prices though, with minimal risk.



  366.  

    so if i get the g-lide do you think thats going to be better for me since its glossy and can wipe down easily instead of the Casio Tough Culture OS Watch DW6900F8008 i want to get one for school and i just want a g-shock that can stay clean for a long period of time



  367.  


  368.  

    manny76530,

    That "Military Green- G-SHOCK WATCH" is a fake. The cheapest new G-Shock is at least $30. So any of these $15 ones are most probably fakes.



  369.  

    alright thanks!



  370.  

    who is the safest seller on ebay to get a real g-shock from?



  371.  

    On my box the model number said G-1000-1ADR. I don't know whether it is legitimate.



  372.  

    Riley thank you for the information and do you know what is the best way to clean a white g shock



  373.  

    manny76530,

    I don't really buy G-Shocks from eBay because of all the problems. I always try finding them on Amazon with this tool:
    http://mygshock.com/amazon-discount-finder/

    warpa123,

    That looks like a legit G-Shock model:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/G-1xx/G-1000-1ADR/

    N09,

    White G-Shocks are a pain to keep clean usually. I don't really wear them for this reason. Once a stain gets into the resin there's not really a way to fully clean it.



  374.  

    i would like to buy these g shocks check if they are real
    http://www.ioffer.com/i/135528497
    and
    http://www.ioffer.com/i/135525827
    and
    http://www.ioffer.com/i/152978481
    Thanks ;)



  375.  

    EmmanuelG45,

    The G-Shocks on those ioffer pages seem fishy. You're not going to find super rare limited edition brand new for under $100. It looks like the seller took the pics from another seller maybe. Stick to well known retailers if you want to be sure.



  376.  


    legit?



  377.  

    nacios,

    Looks good. :-! A real DW-5600E.



  378.  

    thanks riley just need some help



  379.  

    hey, i just bought this yellow one from ebay. Ebay was the only place i could find it and there was no info on any other website. can you tell me if its legit

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Casio-G-Shock-G-6900-6900A-G6900A-9-Tough-Solar-yellow-/280545111698?pt=Wristwatches#ht_1670wt_1139



  380.  


  381.  

    snguyen,

    That G-6900 G-Shock and seller look good.

    JayP23,

    That white G7900 is a fake. Do not buy from that seller sam*shop if you want a real G-Shock.



  382.  

    thanx.

  384.  

    iNinja,

    Yep, they're real. It's a Lover's Collection pair that came out in 2008. Those are just stock images from Casio. These should be rather hard to find now. I doubt that anyone would try to make fakes of these, but you never know. You should really only buy from a reputable dealer if you want to be safe.



  385.  

    hey thanks alot. where is a best play to but these from?? my aniversary is coming up and so i would like to get these for my wife and i.. i have a g shock watch already and its the one "hans posted on march 5 2010." mine are just like the one he posted.. is that real as well.. i bought mine at costco for $30 in hawaii.. it was a great deal so i couldnt pass up on it.. plus you never said if it was real of fake on his.. lol get back to me asap.. i hope g shock or baby g hooks you up for this site.. this is great.. >;o)



  386.  

    Yep, That GW-330A looks real. I don't know where you can get that Lover's pair. You might want to try a dealer in Japan.



  387.  

    hi riley,

    i just bought a gshock from tnt fashions and i dont see any casio on it or a number and it had rimestones on it. im asking does my gshock sound real and does a real gshock have rimestones on it?



  388.  

    nikki,

    I've never heard of TNT Fashions. I don't think there's any G-Shocks that come with rhinestones on them from the Casio factory. But there's a lot of people that customize G-Shocks and then sell them with that sort of thing. I think that Casio did release some Baby-G watches with rhinestones on them though.

    Post a photo or a link to the watch and I can try to help you out. Real G-Shock usually come with packaging that has the full model number printed on it. And usually there's at least a partial model number engraved in the metal backside of the watch.



  389.  

    icant find a photo of mine and 2morrow ill try to take a pic of it but i was trying to find real ones and i came across this one on macys.com could you plz. tell me the name of this one and tell me if this is real .



  390.  


  391.  


  392.  

    nikki,

    That's a real Crazy Colors DW6900CC, and Macy's is a safe place to buy from.

    iNinja,

    That's a real Casio PAW1300 Pathfinder. It's technically not a G-Shock though.



  393.  

    haha.. its not.. he listed it as it.. anyways in your opinion whats the best gshock watch out there?? i wanna get one but i dont know what to get.. the love pair is the one i really want but i cant find it anywhere.. plus i dont wanna have to go overseas to buy them.. i was looking at that pathfinder on since i hike most of the time.. i'm a really active people so i need a watch that can match me.. lol i already have the gw330a but i usually use it to go to the club because of the gold finish and it looks nice in the dark when the light hits it.. lol thanks



  394.  

    has g shock design dw5600 for bape



  395.  

    Spike Lee editions, need some help asap.
    appreciate it in advance.

    petershypee,

    Everything looks good on that DW-5000SL.



  397.  

    Have you or anyone you know had dealings with an Ebay seller called ivshc ?

    He seems to have excellent feedback…

    I'm looking at buying this watch and wondered whether you could give me your opinion…

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120606716897#ht_4978wt_1139

    It looks like the real deal to me but some confirmation would be gratefully received…

    Cheers bud!

    spazz,

    That G-Shock looks real and the seller seems legit. He's in Hong Kong though. I tend to stay away from sellers there just because shipping takes so long and there's more likely to be issue with the packaging.



  399.  

    Cheers mate. Appreciate you taking the time to answer. I'll have a ponder - I believe my bro bought from the same seller (he's in the process of checking for me) and said that if it's the same guy he's a good seller so I'll base it on his experience.

    Anyway, thanks again!



  400.  

    I just bought a fake G-Shock. The light changes many diffrent colors. The watch itself has a clear surrounding so the colors are seen very brightly. It also has 7 diffrent colors and one setting has all 7 colors pulsing at once. It says Illuminator and sport. I just wanted everyone to know that because I haven't seen on this website about the same kind of watch.

    My question is on each G-Shock does the watch band buckle have the word casio engraved or on certain ones??



  401.  

    jazie_pha95,

    I think every G-Shock has the word Casio engraved in the buckle. Or at least something. I haven't checked them all though.

    And thanks for the information on the color changing fake G.



  402.  

    Okay Riley I'd like your help since you have so much experience. I'm a High School student and just recently became interested in buying a G-Shock G-lide. My problem is i don't know anything about them since I've never owned one. So i was on Amazon and i came upon a Turquoise G-Shock G-lide being sold by " Watch colony" the watch is a very decent price and good for my High School budget. So can you please check it out here is the link

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GLX5600-1-G-Shock-G-Lide-Surfing/dp/B001A65ZJ4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=watches&qid=1282433956&sr=8-1

    It's the Turquoise G-Shock i'm thinking about buying so your help would be appreciated.



  403.  

    Has G Shock every designed a DW5600 for BAPE if they have what color



  404.  

    Bernie,

    I've never heard of Watch Colony, but it says their orders are fulfilled and shipped by Amazon, so I would think that would be as safe as ordering directly from Amazon. So you should be good with that one. It's a good price.

    EmmanuelG45,

    Bape has released a couple DW-5600 G-Shocks. There's a blue one and a brown one.



  405.  


  406.  

    domaka,

    That Bape looks real. That Japanese seller doesn't seem specialize in G-Shocks, but his feedback looks good. It's hard to be 100% on Bapes sense there's so many fakes. At about $350 the price seems like what it should be for a real one.



  407.  


  408.  

    It looks like ebay seller janelove09 is selling a bunch of fake bapes.



  409.  

    lol yea he is.. i mean i could tell right when i saw that first white watch it was bad news lol…



  410.  

    hey riley i just ran across this watch on ebay idk if it's legit or not, but i bet you would know…http://cgi.ebay.ca/BATHING-APE-BAPE-SHARK-CLEAR-BAPEX-NAVY-G-SHOCK-NEW-/200511554261?pt=Wristwatches



  411.  

    N09,

    I don't really know much about those clear Bapex watches. It looks like it might be real, but I can't say anything for sure.



  412.  

    Hey riley I've been searching for a orange DW-6900MM-4JF and I finally found 1 on ebay with the sellers own pictures can you tell me if it's real or not?
    http://cgi.ebay.com/CASIO-G-SHOCK-Crazy-Colors-DW-6900MM-4JF-JAPAN-LE-NIB-/110573750978#ht_4007wt_913
    Since september is almost here do you think I should wait for pictures of those?



  413.  

    Acute,

    It looks real. That seller in Japan has good feedback, but they don't seem to specialize in selling Casio G-Shocks. I think you would be alright though.



  414.  

    I would recommend starting at Amazon or a reputable affiliate such as http://www.dw6900.com - that is where I purchased my last G-Shock from.



  415.

    I'm pretty sure it's real. kinda just wanted to know how rare it was cause i saw it and had to get it lol thanks



  416.  

    ziggyman1307,

    I can't see anything at the links you posted.



  417.  

    Hi Riley, I just got a G-Shock I ordered from the mail
    Please confirm if its real or not, thanks!

  418.  

    EpiCkx,

    It looks like that eBay seller shopinthestore is selling a bunch of fake G7900 G-Shocks.



  419.  

    Riley i just bought this new g schock from a friend it seems regular but i wanted to have your opinion on it its a red dw9600cc it say casio in the front in back it has the serial number in the back which is dw9600cc it has the G logo in the back also its made in thailand its said schock resist in the bottom of the G logo i want to have your opinion on that
    Ps: i have been trying to put some personal photos of it but i dont know how



  420.  

    princedice92,

    It sounds like it's the real deal. I think if it's red it must be the DW-6900CB though. See here:

    i wanted to know if any of these watches on this page are real
    because i wanted one

    thx alot



  422.  

    is this real?



  423.  

    joga,

    Those Riseman clones sellpaulfrank is selling are all fake. Stay away from less than $30 "G-Shocks" from China.



  424.  


  425.  

    joga,

    Yes, it should be safe to buy from Wal-Mart. I prefer Amazon though.



  426.  

    hey Riley

    im kinda new to this, so can you help me? i found a g-shock i like on ebay,

    canthttp://cgi.ebay.com/New-waterproof-200M-Casio-Surfing-G-shock-G-9100-BLACK-/280556935797?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item41527f1a75#ht_2436wt_1137,

    i thought it was real but i cant see the back, can you please tell me if its real



  427.  

    mohamed,

    Those photos look real, but I don't know about that seller 6585jianh in China. $26 + free shipping is way too low a price for a real G9100 Gulfman. $50-60 would be a good deal and much more likely to be real. Check out Amazon.com.



  428.  

    Riley,

    what sellers do you recommend on ebay?



  429.  

    Hi can you tell me if this is real

    thanks

    http://i648.photobucket.com/albums/uu202/qkm_2009/fffhDSC02636.jpg



  430.  

    mohamed,

    Msgdistributors is good. I don't really buy mush from eBay. Most of the sellers there are questionable.

    kai,

    That G7700 looks real.



  431.  


  432.  

    WhiteboyFTW,

    Fake! That's not a real "G SHOCK RESIST ALARM CHRONO NAVY BLUE SPORTS WATCH". It looks like hiphopjeweleryland is not a good seller.

    Please avoid sub-$40 G-Shocks on eBay. There's a 99% chance they are fake.

    Unless they're used or something.



  433.  


  434.  

    sadoon,

    That G-Shock is real and a good deal. A DW-5600 for $42 on Amazon is the cheapest real G-Shock you're going to find anywhere legit.



  435.  

    hey riley i just want to know if this g shock is real or fake thx

    http://s929.photobucket.com/albums/ad133/geron564/

    btw i put in alot of water and it stayted the same



  436.  

    geron564,

    It's really hard to make out much in those photos. But it does like like it's supposed to be a Bape. If you paid less than $200 for it, I can just about guarantee it's a fake. Like 99.9% of the Bape G-Shocks out there are fake.



  437.  

    hi Riley..
    I just want to know if this G-Shock is real or fake..
    Coz I want to buy it..Especially the mudman ones
    It was sold by another person in Indonesia and also in rupiah currency…

    And also greetings for ya from Indonesia..




  438.

    captgeddoe,

    That G-9000-3VDR Mudman looks real. I've never heard of WristWatchAlley.com though.

  445.  

    kg14,

    I think there's one matte black Bape and one glossy black Bape so far.

    574triz,

    Those G-Shocks look real.



  446.  


  447.  

    bballboy,

    I'd go with the Amazon one. Amazon is the place I always check first. They usually have the best prices and service.



  448.  

    thanks, but what doing u think about buying watches in macys?



  449.  

    Macy's is cool, but they charge full retail price. And when you buy in the store you often get the wrong box and/or manual (they get all mixed up when they take them out for display).



  450.  


  451.  

    hockeyfan328,

    Those look like images of a real G-Shock, but I don't know about that Hong Kong seller watch_dealer2008. His feedback isn't too great. And the watermarks in the photos seem like they might have been taken from another seller.



  452.  

    Hi, I just recently bought this G-Shock, from your knowledge is it real/fake??

    Sorry if they are blurry, I used my cellphone cam lol . But yeah , Please and thanks . =]
    The part that worried me most was that it says "Water 20BAR RESIST" Instead of the usual 200m resist thinq i've seen on other Gshocks. It has casio on the front and back thouqh and pretty much everythinq else that people pointed out to see if it was real or not . :P



  453.  

    Beneficial,

    Sorry, but that one looks like a fake. The LCD doesn't look right. And I don't think there's any current real ones with that color scheme.



  454.  

    sup riley.

    just wanna know, is my g-shock real? i dont wanna rock a fake g-shock.

    [images deleted from Photobucket]

    thanks.



  455.  

    takenaga,

    Sorry, but that's a fake. It doesn't have a model number on the case back, and it doesn't really look like any real G-Shock model.



  456.  

    Hi Riley i just bought a grayish-white g shock with black in the middle and it is a DW6900 and on the back instead of saying Thailand it says japan please tell me if it is a fake and if not way does it say japan thank you very much.



  457.  

    damion,

    I can't say for sure based on what you said there. Plenty of real G-Shocks are made in Japan, but it tends to be the more expensive ones.

    What's the full model number (should be on the box or packaging)? How much did you pay? And where did you buy it? Any photos?



  458.  

    i bought it from champs DW6900FS-8CS and it was $89.99



  459.  

    damion,

    Champs is a major retail chain, and it's unlikely that they would sell illegal fakes G-Shocks. You should be good.



  460.  

    so why does it say japan on the back



  461.  

    hey,im thinking about buying one,but i'm not much of a expert on gshock,can you find out if this fake or real,thanks.
    http://shop.pacsun.com/Guys/watches/Rescue-Red-Watch/index.pro



  462.  

    gdfather,

    I've never bought a G-Shock from Pacsun, but they're another big retail chain, so it should be a safe place to buy from.



  463.  


  464.  

    Hi,
    Could someone please tell me whether or not this is a fake?

    Full Details Here

    Thank you for your help



  465.  

    ish133,

    That G7900 looks like it might be real, but $20 is way too cheap for it to be a real one that you actually receive. That seller tianshu7712 has good feedback, but not very much of it. And they're in China. I'd stay away.

    k8as0v,

    That DW-6900MS looks real. And the price is about right. I don't know the seller ivshc, but he looks decent.



  466.  

    i was wondering if you could show me the chiepest real g shock available i love g shocks but have already purchased a fake BAPE one and i come from a low income family so i didnt check it before i bought it ppleeaasse help!!!



  467.  

    and is this real?http://cgi.ebay.com/Leisure-Sport-Electronic-Watch-G-Shock-7900-Black-/270638572233?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3f0350e2c9#ht_5052wt_930



  468.  

    johnx,

    The best deal on a real G-Shock (and a classic watch that's awesome) is the DW-5600E:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=377110011&pct-off=30-99%&emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=mygsh-20&sort=price&keywords=DW5600E

    The DW-6900 is bigger and a few bucks more at $45:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=377110011&pct-off=30-99%&emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=mygsh-20&sort=price&keywords=DW6900

    Amazon currently has the DW-9052 for $34, but I'm not a huge fan of that G:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=377110011&pct-off=30-99%&emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=mygsh-20&sort=price&keywords=DW9052

    And stay away from those Chinese eBay sellers with the $100 G-Shocks for $20.



  469.  

    thanks a lot they all look real good as a g shock should but do you know how to customize them??? i just want something on one else has and because the ones you recommended are some what cheap if i mess up i wont be out $100 bucks like most.thanks again



  470.  

    hi Riley, this is my first time here and my first time looking forward to buy a REAL G-shock , so i was wondering if this website mygshockshop.com is legit! or can you recommend me a legit website , i live in canada , b.c vancouver!! oh yeah btw , im looking for GW7900B-1 watches like that, so please help me out , thanks alot!



  471.  


  472.  

    raymond,

    I've never heard of mygshockshop.com. I took a look, but I can't really say for sure.

    Buying from Amazon should be safe. That's where I usually buy from.



  473.  

    Alrite , thanks alot mate!! appreciate your afford on spotting fake g-shocks!!



  474.  


  475.  


  476.  

    Dwayne,

    It looks legit. It should be safe to buy from Amazon.



  477.  


  478.  

    sprigs_on_fire,

    That looks like a real G9200 G-Shock. That seller watches-bay-auc is in Singapore, so shipping might take a while, but their feedback is pretty good.



  479.  

    Thanks for the confirmation Riley, think i'll keep an eye on it & see how the bidding pans out.



  480.  


  481.  

    rodsrocks,

    That G-6900A looks real. I don't know that seller watchesdeals, but they have good feedback and seem to be in Hong Kong. The shipping just might take a long time.



  482.  

    Hey again, I'm looking to buy a nice limited G shock, But I can't find any good websites (legit sites)
    I'm in uk but im sure US site will be fine, Could someone point me in the right direction



  483.  

    rodsrocks,

    Can you order from Amazon in the UK? That's usually what I recommend.

    I did just find out about this deal:

    5% Off G-Shocks

    Use coupon code: mygshock

    They do international shipping.



  484.  

    hey can you please tell me if this is real or not? i just bought on ebay for 82 bucks. its the 6900cb. its my first g shock so idk how it should feel or look. and when i bought it, i opened the container of the gshock and there was a plastic thing around it and i heard they never put them in plastics. please let me know ASAP so i can refund it as fast as possible. thanks!





  485.  

    blankster,

    That looks like a real DW-6900CB. You're good.

    BTW - Most real G-Shocks come wrapped in a clear plastic bag sort of wrapping (within the outer box).



  486.  

    If Blankster or Riley could answer,
    What color does the face of Blanksters new watch light up?
    Thanks
    Nice Watch!



  487.  

    thanks riley! and rodsrocks it lights up blue. btw how come its kinda hard to see the time? it doesnt look as bright as some other peoples.



  488.  

    Hey (again)
    I've finally decided which one I'm getting.
    http://www.cheapcasio.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Casio-DW6900CC-6-G-Shock-Watch.jpg
    But there one strange thing, I found this picture and the watch has a GOLD G button, Is it a different model or….? I don't know, I'd rather have the gold part on it but it doesn't matter much.

    http://www.time2.co.uk/shop/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/800x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/D/W/DW-6900SW-6ER-1.jpg



  489.  

    blankster,

    The backlight illumination can look very different in photos and videos. Try comparing some G-Shocks in real life. They probably vary a little, but each model should be consistent.

    rodsrocks,

    There is actually two different real models that look similar, except for the button. One comes with an action figure.

  490.  

    It was mentioned earlier in this post, but stay away from Ebay seller sellpaulfrank out of China. I bought a watch from his site before I really knew what to look for and the fake Riseman i received was the cheapest "pos" you could imagine. None of the functions worked, buttons were switched (the stop/start and reset), and the display so light it is hard to read. On the other hand, it did come with a free yellow fake Bape that i didn't even order. So instead of spending $40 on 1 two-dollar watch, I got 2 two-dollar watches. Avoid this guy like the plague- I'm doing my best to get him kicked off ebay, but he'll probably be right back as another seller.



  491.  

    texaskeptic,

    Thanks for the extra confirmation. It's a good idea to report these scammers to eBay. It's a real problem.



  492.  

    I had my G-shock fora while now and its been bothering me, would it be fake if there isnt a G on the button that lights up the watch? and would it be considered fake if the word G-Shock is Ingraved in red at the top? Thanks



  493.  

    CRowe,

    Not all G-Shocks have the "G" on the button. Some are just plain gray. Many Fakes do have the "G-Shock" text across the top. It's hard to tell without seeing some good photos of it.



  494.  

    hi Riley..
    can u check for me wether this gshock watch is original or fake..the model is G-6900B..it looks similar to the one with multi band 6 feature ( model no. GW6900B-1 ) .



  495.  

    lanet,

    It's probably real, but I can't see any of your photos. That's a very new model and there's unlikely to be any fakes of it yet.



  496.  

    ok..thanks! =D



  497.  


  498.  

    gtmaniak,

    Both of those look real and the prices seem about right. I don't know the sellers whattimeizit and hkexporter though. They seem to have good feedback. I tend to stay away from eBay and Hong Kong sellers especially if I can. Amazon is usually what I recommend instead.



  499.  

    I jut got burned on EBAY the picture of the G-shock Gulfman on the add is not what comes in the mail. DONT BUY FrOM these CLOWNS I hope this save some one.

    Shark,

    It looks like that eBay seller was wa117. Here's the images.


    That's not a real authentic G-Shock.



  501.

    i'm looking for online shop but they have too ship to ireland …



  502.  

    gtmaniak,

    I'm not sure about buying G-Shocks in Ireland. Check out tiktox.com. They are in the UK and you can try making a request if they don't stock it.



  503.  

    i try it few times.. No wey for any of Lrg or limited edition.. ireland is stupid cuntry….

  505.  

    jay_c,

    Stay away from the $10 G-Shocks from China. Those are all totally fake. That seller sellpaulfrank has been spotted selling fakes before.



  506.  

    Hi Riley,i just bought a 2nd hand Frogman from a friend,who bought the watch a year ago n couldnt find the original packaging,the back of the watch says GW-225E, its in black n ive checked the archive that serial is only for the 25th anniversary white one..GW-225A is the exact one that ive got,is it just a mistake or a fake..thanks Riley



  507.  

    wetstixx,

    The GW-225E Frogman is supposed to have clear jelly resin parts, gold trim and a gold background LCD. The parts could have been swapped around. Post some photos and I can probably tell you for sure.



  508.  

    Hey I am really into G-Shock watches, I know there are a lot of fake ones and the are sold almost everywhere, even in local neighborhood stores. I never had a REAL one before, and already have an ideal what to look for. I want to know you opinion on this web site

    I want to get more watches from this site, but need a second opinion, since i see you have enough Knowledge about the g-shocks, i want your opinion on the website =)



  509.  

    Shinyoka,

    I've never bought from watchismo, but they seem to have a good reputation. You should be good.



  510.  

    Does anyone know if uslegendinc.com or aviswatches are legit/authentic websites
    ill really appreciate the help thanks.



  511.  

    diegocarpio29,

    I've never tried either of those sites. They don't look particularly good. I would stick to Amazon if possible.



  512.  

    Hi Riley, I'm a first time user of your website. I've noticed that eBay have many cheap Casio G-Shock watches and I would like to know if this particular watch is a fake. It looks like a stock photo but I would like to have your opinion. Thanks

  513.  

    Esha,

    That's a fake Bape. That seller gshocko doesn't look legit. You're not going to get a $300 Bape G-Shock for $30. Say away from those deals that seem to good to be true.



  514.  

    Ok Thanks Anyway Riley. Fast Reply Too.



  515.  

    Hi Riley, Want to know if this G Shock i received is legit before i wear it. pics are kind of blurry though i used my phone camera.

  516.  

    Roy36,

    That looks like a real DW-6900-1V. It's hard to say 100% with the quality of the photos, but everything seems fine.



  517.  

    Hey Riley, I can't tell if the G-Shock I just bought from Wal-Mart here in Canada for $69.69 is real using your tips, I found a site with the exact same watch, same model# and everything, can you please tell me if its legit? And if it's not can you please tell me how you know its fake? Here is the link to my watch: http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900-1V/



  518.  

    Ok thanks bro. ima try to get better pics up later with box



  519.  

    LOL I didn't realize until now that the guy that posted above me, Roy36, has the same watch I'm posting about (I think).



  520.  

    jacobkearns,

    It should always be safe to buy from a major retailer like Wal-Mart. You can read through the entire page above to get all the tips on detecting fakes.



  521.  

    Hey riley, comming back again wit better pics of my G shock.
    My G shocks looks exactly like the one in the link below but ive heard illuminator on a G shocks are usually a fake. is that true?

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Casio-Men-s-G-Shock-Digital-Watch/1192371#ProductDetail

    Ooh and My watch is the same as jacobkearns G shock:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900-1V/

    The box still leaves me kinda fishy bout the G shock though =/ heres the link below

    Btw do G shocks light up green or blue cause ive seen of both type -__-



  522.  


  523.  

    chris12×1,

    That G7900 doesn't look real and it's way too cheap. That seller tiniesqi in Hong Kong seems to be selling fakes.



  524.  

    Roy36,

    I think you're good, but it does look like you got the box from a different 6900 model (a common problem in retail stores).



  525.  

    riley thanks but he said also that it water proof? and u said that if is it it real and he also said he had it more then a year



  526.  

    chris12×1,

    It's 100% fake. You're not going to get a real G-Shock from China for $14 including shipping. I wouldn't listen to anything the seller says about it.



  527.  

    hey riley , recently i bought a g shock 7900 1 the black and red , and you know the metal part hoop when you wear a watch you have to go through that hole , instead of saying CASIO JAPAN , it say CASIO CHINA … is that suppose to be real ? i got it from amazon , it came with the metal box , the little warranty booklet and all …. im just curious about the CASIO CHINA .



  528.  

    raymond,

    It's normal for some of the clasps to say Casio China. You should be good since you got it from Amazon. Casio makes these parts in several countries.



  529.  


  530.  

    jav,

    No, the $10 Bapes from China are not real. The seller sellpaulfrank has been mentioned here before.



  531.  

    Riley,
    I'm buying my boyfriend a g shock for christmas but i'm not completely sure if it's real. it says illuminator at the bottom, so i'm a little sketchy about that. please help :)

  532.  

    antynette,

    I think it might be fake. It's hard to tell for sure with only the one lousy photo. The price seems kind of high for a used real one anyway.



  533.  

    hey, yea i realized it was a crappy photo. i got him to send me a better one http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m524/antynette/DSC03139JPG.jpg
    hopefully this one is easier to decipher if it's real or not
    thanks :)



  534.  

    antynette,

    Those both are definitely fakes. It looks like they are supposed to be Bapes, and if they were real would be worth over $300. I would stay far away from that seller. There either ignorant or a scammer.



  535.  

    thank you i really appreciate you helping me



  536.  


  537.  

    Qteeee,

    That's a stock image of a real G-300SC. I don't know the seller super_bb_shop, but their feedback seems pretty good. I tend to stay away from eBay in general, and shipping from Hong Kong can take a really long time.



  538.  

    im thinking of buying this gshock? it seems like a bargain to me. but not sure wether its real or not? can u help me riley thanks?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260687830507&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_500wt_1156



  539.  

    leelamree,

    Those are all fakes. And expensive ones at that. Stay away. That seller m_jay_c does not look good.



  540.  


  541.  

    domaka,

    That might be a real Bape, but it's hard to say for sure. The seller has good feedback, but he looks like he's just a random guy selling it and not a dealer. I just have a policy of not buying Bapes from anyone except the Bape store, but who knows you might get lucky. 1 out of about 100 million Bapes on eBay are real (or thereabouts at least).



  542.  

    hello, Riley i think of buying a G shock…do you think the ones in nordstrom are fake or real please need to know……CHECK the website at nordstrom.com and see if there real.please



  543.  

    junior562,

    You should be safe buying in a big department store like Nordstroms. You'll probably be paying full retail price though. Their website is cool too.



  544.  


  545.  

    brullikk,

    Those look real. I don't know those sellers koofactor and itechshophk. They seem to have good feedback. The second one is in Hong Kong though. There photos just aren't too great.



  546.  

    Hey Riley, Can you tell me if this is fake or real and which model of g-shock it is and possibly how much it is worth??




  547.  

    Qteeee,

    That looks like a real GLX-5600A-2. It's worth whatever someone will pay for it. Check eBay for some numbers.



  548.  

    Every heard of or dealt with i-york? The have an e-Bay store, and a private site as well (iyorkinc.com), which has better pricepoints. Good selection to boot.

    Prices are pretty good, but not silly, and they use both stock and origional photos.

    Sometimes the site is inconsistent thouhg - like the same watch listed twice for 2 different prices.

    Here is a random listing:

    http://www.iyorkinc.com/servlet/the-2084/200M-G-dsh-Shock-Speed-Indicator/Detail



  549.  

    The_Shocker,

    I've never heard of them. They might be alright, but I recommend going with a reputable store like Amazon, gshock.com or Macy's whenever possible.



  550.  

    Hello,
    could you check if this one is a real one?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160507909487&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Thanks



  551.  

    san_jay,

    That GLX5660 looks real I don't know that eBay seller watches-bay-us though. They seem to b in Singapore , which is not bad, but shipping might take a long time.



  552.  

    Hello riley could you please check that these watches and seller are genuine please. Ive just bought one and im now a little worried.

    http://shop.ebay.co.uk/rui_chan/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25">

    Thank you



  553.  

    aybeezwife,

    I took a look at a few of them. They look like real G-Shocks with the original bezels replaced with custom bling ones. It looks like the seller is in Hong Kong. I would be more concerned about the quality of the custom work at those prices. You won't really know for sure until you examine it in person. There's lots of crappy ones out there for a full range of prices.



  554.  

    hey Riley, i seen this watch on ebay could you let me know if its real or not before i decide to purchase it?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-WHITE-SHOCK-RESISTANT-G-SPORT-DIGITAL-WATCH-/200545566975?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item2eb17280ff



  555.  

    ayeekel,

    It's a fake. It looks like the seller nyc_junkyard doesn't even claim it's a real G-Shock.



  556.  

    Hi Riley,
    I was wondering if there are Fake Atomic Solar G-Shock's, and if so, if their technology works.

    I have a multi-band GW810BXD, and it managed to Synch in both North America and Japan. I.E. the when Sync'ing, the watch showed the correct atomic clock location.

    Is this a sure sign that it's real, or can fakes also do this?

    Thanks!



  557.  

    gshokku,

    I'm pretty darn sure that none of the fake G-Shocks will sync up to the atomic time signal anywhere. Most of the fakes just do a poor job of imitating the outward appearance, and totally forget about implementing any of the real functionality of G-Shocks.



  558.  

    Hey Riley!
    I was wonder if these are fake. Thanks your time.




  559.  

    jasontran1,

    It's really hard to say for sure because of the low quality photos. I would stay away from DW-6900s that don't come from a reputable store. There's just too many fakes. I don't recall seeing any fakes DW-56RTB-7s before, so that might be a safer bet.



  560.  

    Hey Riley,

    I stumbled across your website AFTER I purchased a g-shock necklace for my nephew. I got it off from eBay for $17.99. Well the user doesn't accept returns, but is this a fake watch? How much noticeable it is to spot a fake gshock out in public?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/G-SHOCK-WRIST-WATCH-6900-WHITE-/320622851791?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item4aa69c76cf#ht_500wt_1145



  561.  

    DMB803,

    That's definitely a fake G7900 G-Shock. You should report the seller hassamkhan to eBay. It's technically illegal to sell those. And anyone that knows G-Shocks will instantly spot that one as a fake. The real ones are much better.



  562.  

    Hey Riley,
    Just bought this Casio Solar G-shock G6900GR im pretty sure its real Right? And do you think its a good choice of watch?



  563.  

    Brandan718,

    Looks good. That's a real one alright. It's a nice limited edition. :-!



  564.  

    Hi Riley,
    Can you see if this one on e-bay is real please. i already bought it last night before seeing this site but it won't ship until Friday as he doesn't have it in stock until then so i need to know before then so i can stat the fight if needed!
    Cheers Mike

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150523839573&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_1425wt_907



  565.  

    Desire68,

    It looks real (just a stock photo though). And the price seems about right. I don't know that seller, but it's looks alright.



  566.  

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GLS5600KL-7-G-Shock-White-Resin/dp/B00455FRYK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=watches&qid=1291265219&tag=mygsh-20&sr=1-2
    Hey Riley, i just purchased this watch, and i'm not sure if it's real because the time inside the number is 2:52 and usually it is 10:58 on other watches and the same model on google had 10:58 so i'm confused



  567.  

    livealoha,

    That GLS5600KL looks alright. It is odd that the time in the stock photo is different. I've never heard of WatchZone, but they have good feedback and are using Amazon's distribution warehouses. So it should be good.



  568.  


  569.  

    GshockCollector123,

    Those photos are really lousy. I guess it's supposed to be this one: http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900CB-4/ It looks pink in the photos though. It's hard to say for sure based on those photos.



  570.  

    Hi Riley,
    Can i get your opinion on a g shock im planing to buy i am definalety getting The GLX-5600-A2 but i have two others that is really hard to decide Check them out

    first

    Also This one

    second

    Oh and i want a mudman but i've heard the reviews and that its hard to read does a mudman have an auto blacklight app?

    third

    Thanks, -coL-r1sk



  571.  

    coL-r1sk-,

    All three are nice. I don't really care for wearing white G-Shocks myself because they get dirty so easily. The Mudman looks awesome, but the display is harder to read. And yes, the Mudman does have the auto EL option. Go with whatever you like best. You should be safe buying on Amazon.



  572.  

    Hi Riley,
    I i was thinkin of gettin this but im not so sure its real can you take a look at it for me.
    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-DW6900-1V-G-Shock-Classic-Digital/dp/B000GAYQL8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1291500599&tag=mygsh-20&sr=8-4



  573.  

    Alan1017,

    It's real. You be totally safe buying a DW6900 directly from Amazon like that. It's about the best deal on a real G-Shock at that price.



  574.  


  575.  

    yungcity05,

    I'm pretty sure that Walmart is never going to sell you a fake G-Shock. But their selection of models usually isn't too great. They can have good prices though. I would compare them against Amazon though to make sure (not having to pay sales tax on your order might make a difference too).



  576.  

    So i just received my GW-7900RD-4JF "Men in burning Red" G-Shock from here

  577.  

    Hey!

    Was wondering if you could shine any light on this one?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230557903135&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    I can't seem to find much info on it at all. I so badly want to believe that it's geniune because it's AMAZING :(

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Sara



  578.  

    xfirewalkwithmex,

    That BG3000V-5 looks real. I'm not very familiar with that model or that eBay seller. You shou be good though.



  579.  

    Thanks! I think I'm going to go for it. The seller has pretty consistant good feedback anyway.

    This site is pretty impressive.



  580.  

    First of all congratulations for your website. I only owned one G-Shock, I bought it something like 15 years ago or so. It is still working and it's a G-lide green.Actually it's no longer gliding since many years but besides that it's a good watch.
    Now I just bought a new G-shock, for every day use, and I chose a model which is favourite amongst military people. Since it wasn't available over here and amazon doesn't sell outside US as well such kind of items I bought on Ebay. I checked the seller's feedback and he also only sell watches. he's based in the US. The picture is the standard one, and I hope it will be ok. Maybe anybody knows the seller or could tell me how to spot a fake for this model. Thanks and best regards Matt



  581.  

    pmatt,

    It sounds like you're good, but I don't see any photos or links for what you're asking. I'd be happy to confirm that the G-Shock you bought is real.



  582.  


  583.  

    BTW, my previous G-shock was a DW-9000 G-Lide in green.But it's not gliding anymore :)



  584.  

    pmatt,

    That's just a stock image of a DW9052 G-Shock. That's not unusual really, and everything seems OK. But I don't know this jj_watches eBay seller.

    It looks like you're in Italy. You can post on the Watchuseek.com G-Shock Forum asking about good sellers there. I know a few regulars there live in Italy. It's usually best to find the closest reputable dealer, so that you don't have to pay too much for shipping (or wait that long for the watch to arrive).



  585.  

    Thank you Riley, yes I'm in Italy. Actually the main problem is that a $50 watch will be sold for $80 or more over here, so I actually have no plus from buying from my country.



  586.  

    Hey Riley, this is my first G-Shock.. It came with a hexagon box shape..Could you tell me if this is real or fake? Thanks.



  587.  

    hinny562,

    It looks real. This G-Shock came in the new black hexagonal tin.



  588.  

    Yes that's right. The black hexagon tin box. Thanks!



  589.  

    Hello I recently purchased a G-Shock LOV-10A-7BDR from superchrono.com I was wondering if you were familiar with them and if they sell fakes? They seem reputable but you never know.
    Thanks



  590.  

    djmerge1,

    Super Chrono is alright. They get some good limited editions, but their prices can be kinda high, so I don't usually buy from them.



  591.  

    Hi, I want to know if it is fake one. Hhere is the link

    and i saw the photos on the link everywhere. so I am not sure if they took the real photos.
    thanks.



  592.  

    superggg,

    That Gulfman looks real, but I don't know that eBay seller. They are in Hong Kong, which means shipping could take a long time. I doesn't look like an obvious bad deal though.



  593.  

    Thanks Riley.

    So would you buy it if you are me? because that model is sold out everywhere except ebay.

    And i think they just copied pictures from other site…..



  594.  

    Riley, do you think this is a fake? It's GX56-1A on Casio's site, but here it says GX56-1ACR..

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GX56-1ACR-G-Shock-Resistant-Digital/dp/B003URWNIC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1293178204&sr=8-1



  595.  

    superggg,

    It's up to you. There might be a little risk, but it could turn out fine.

    ohai,

    I don't know that Oxlar seller, but it's usually safe to buy on Amazon (even from third party sellers). $150 is full retail price for a GX56 though.



  596.  

    hey riley, can you check out this g shock real quick?? im eager to buy it but im not sure if its real.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-G-Watch-G-Shock-White-Glossy-Men-Kid-Blue-Display-/160523285417?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item255feef3a9



  597.  

    kcizzy,

    It's FAKE. Looks like it's best to stay away from that seller eddpharm in Malaysia.



  598.  

    what makes it fake?



  599.  

    Riley, I dont know if my G-Shock is Bape or not. On the bottom it has all the things a real Bape should have, but on the top it says Casio like a regular G-Shock. Instead of the Bape symbol showing up when you press the light button its a big G. It used to be white but i painted it black. The friend that gave me it said it was in a dryer. I would like to know if its real, or an old Bape. Also it says DW-5600VT on the bottom.



  600.  

    hey riley just wanted to know if my g-shock is real here is a video of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWDVZcTtZ0c



  601.  

    kcizzy,

    It's missing the "Casio" text and other small details. There's no real G-Shock with that exact design.

    SD,

    I can't really say for sure based on that description. There's very few real Bapes out there though. If you didn't pay over $300 for it, it's probably not a real Bape.

    cristian305,

    I think that looks like a real DW-6900MS. The case back is different than mine, but a lot of other people have reported that change. It seems Casio has started making more of the DW-6900 models in China.



  602.  

    thank you riley i got scared of the back 2 because it says made in china and it doesnt have the logo



  603.  

    Hi riley,

    I am currently based in China and the below website in China is popular to buy products online. The below link is in Chinese, you may use the Google translate to change the language to English.

    Model: PRG-130Y-1D

    Can you check this out if this is real. forty-nine people already bought from this supplier with 48 positive comments Thanks!

    That looks like a real Casio Pro Trek watch. But I don't know anything about that Chinese website or seller. I would think it would be better to order from a known reputable dealer in Japan.



  605.  

    i just got my 7900 g shock but the words under it is yellow instead of red does this mean that it is fake



  606.  

    Hi Riley,

    Thanks! The cost is really cheap so I'll try to get it from that website. The website has a 7 day warranty to return the product if it is damaged or not authentic so my money is protected. I'll be sure to send you some snapshot once I get the watch.



  607.  

    chrisshock,

    You'll have to post a photo or something. There's lots of different 7900 models (and even more fakes).



  608.  

    Hey Riley

    I'm going to get my first G-Shock and I'm going to Macy's to get mines.
    I'm scared that I might get a fake one so can you look over these to see if there fake or not?

    http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=352161&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=448074&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    I'm interested in both of those G-Shocks but scared if there fake.
    Thanks!



  609.  

    Dylan,

    It should be totally safe to buy from Macy's. They are one of the few Authorized Dealers in the US. You just have to pay the full retail price, unless you can use some coupons or something.



  610.  

    Oh and sorry to bother but is Sears another safe place to buy G-Shocks?
    Or is it a fake seller?

    Thanks!



  611.  

    i am now the proud owner of a fake G-7900

    :( - lucky the post was slow from china , as i would have given it for a xmas present. got it from ebay for $1 auction win, +$11 post, so all in all, not too fussed - the date is only 2 chars instead of 3 + the mode setting to set the tide and moon is non-existant.

    the watch it self looks passable, and i cant believe they get away with all they official text on the back - in any case, here are some pics for all.

  612.  

    Dylan,

    Sears is good too. See above. No major US retail chain stores are going to sell fakes. It's illegal to sell them. It's only those crappy no name mall shops and online sellers that you usually have to worry about.

    mikey,

    That sucks that you got scammed. That one looks closer to a real one than most. Those deals from China that are too good to be true are always going to turn out to be scams I'm afraid.



  613.  

    hi riley,

    i did also get 3 others from this seller, as the below pictures show, all of which are fakes of course.

    thanks to the info i received from reading this site, i contacted the owner via ebay , and he was quite apologetic (as he would be) - he hasnt sold any others since i won mine 1 month ago as that is how long it took to send them to me in australia. in any case, he sent me a full refund via paypal including postages (total usd$58) for the 4 watches, and told me not to send them back, and keep as a gift hahahhahah

  614.  

    Hey Riley,i recently bought a Dw-6900 and i realized that it said "made in China" on the back ,is it fake?and also the buckle is made of plastic



  615.  


  616.  

    systemofadown,

    I'm not really that familiar with that Casio model, but it looks like a stock image of a real one.



  617.  

    hi riley, I've been intrested in gettin a g shock butt id like to know if zumies,boarders or macy's is safe?



  618.  

    obeykirby,

    I don't really know zumiez or boarders myself (They don't seem to have any stores around here), but Macy's is good. Any major legit retail store should be fine to buy G-Shocks from. It's just the shady shops you have to watch out for. The ones that don't mind selling a crappy illegal product to make a few bucks ripping people off.



  619.  

    Wassup Riley,
    I just bought a dw6900fs-8 from shopemco I havent received it yet but
    I was wondering if they are a safe site for g-shocks, I bought it from them on amazon but they also sell on eBay. I know u said amazon is safe but they are a third party selling on amazon. I would gladly appreciate a response with your opinion on them.
    Thanks



  620.  

    billiscrazy,

    I've heard that Shopemco is pretty good. I prefer buying directly from amazon, but you should be alright with them.



  621.  

    Hi,

    I'm super worried now that the Gx56 I bought off JimmyJazz.com is fake. I thought they would be reputable because they have a lot of brick and mortar stores, but their reviews are pretty much written by themselves and a person has reported the shoes that they received were fake from them. However I thought pretty much with so much store prescense they would have been caught selling fakes. http://www.jimmyjazz.com/mens/accessories/g-shock-big-digital/GX561A?color=Black
    The price wasn't that much off from amazon, but they had a coupon. Argh, I hope I can cancel….



  622.  

    psychoidiot,

    I've never heard of that site, but that looks like a real GX-56 King G-Shock. You should be good if the watch you receive is that one. Their price of $140 isn't too great, and the regular retail price is $150 instead of $170.



  623.  

    Hi Riley, can you help me on this one ! http://cgi.ebay.com/Dee-Ricky-Authentic-Limited-Edition-G-Shock_W0QQitemZ170588829790QQcategoryZ31387QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp5197.m7QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D5%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D6270817909143481575 i really want the Dee & Ricky model, but this auction is cheaper than all the other Dee & Ricky auctions on eBay, others are around 399-700$.. Can you spot if its fake please !

    Cheers !



  624.  

    Nico1337,

    It looks real. I don't know anything about that eBay seller though. But there's no "Buy It Now" price. It could end up being bid up a lot higher than $200.



  625.  

    Hey Riley I just bought this G shock off of ebay and I was wondering if you could tell me if it was real or not? Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170587238910&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated thanks!



  626.  

    Gqthefuture,

    That G-8100D looks real. But I don't know that Hong Kong seller bestpricehk88. The price seems about right though.



  627.  

    Hi Riley, I just got my first G-Shock from Amazon. It came in and is a Casio G-Shock DW6900ms-1 (if i can remember correctly). And I would love to know if it is real, to me, I looked over everything and it checks out fine. But the back plate looks like summer10's, it also came in a plastic box like p0ulet's. So if you would please answer it would be appreciated.



  628.  

    backwardsboi24,

    Casio recently moved the production of the DW-6900MS G-Shock and some other DW-6900 models from Thailand to China. The case bback is now a different design with the "Shock Resistant" text in the middle. You should be good. That's why the new ones look a little different.



  629.  

    Riley, thank you so much. I was concerned. I also learned alot from your form, thankyou for makeing this, I am like the go to guy for G Shocks at my school and I wasnt sure about that back plate. Thankyou again for answering, I learn something everytime I look at this.



  630.  

    hey,
    I just received my g-shock dw6900fs-8, but on the packaging it says dw6900fs-8cu, i typed that into the official website and nothing was found so does that mean its fake?
    thnx riley



  631.  

    billiscrazy,

    The last two letters don't really matter. It's just a special code that has something to do with Casio's regional distribution. That may not be a common one, but it's no big deal. The fake makers don't usually bother with these little details. Most fakes don't even have a full model number anywhere on them (maybe just the first two parts).



  632.  

    Thnx man,
    I appreciate the help



  633.  

    Hey Guys,

    I am kinda new in here and so I NEED ALL YOUR HELP. Casio G shock has been a dream for me all my life, now i actually saw a g shock on ebay on a cheap price. SO CAN YOU GUYS PLEASE TELL ME IF ANY OF THESE LINKS IS A REAL G SHOCK - PLEASE….
    heres are the link: http://cgi.ebay.ca/CASIO-G-Shock-9200-GF-9200-1DRF-Leisure-Sport-Watch-/170579007243?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item6d6f0f381b#ht_4189wt_1139

    AND

    any help will be appreciated



  634.  

    seshan,

    Those are all FAKE. Stay away from these sellers in China with $10 "G-Shocks". None of those are going to be real. I would stay clear of ebay sellers xibeiwang292009 and wow-chainstore.



  635.  

    Hey Riley,

    I was wandering if you can tell me if i have a fake g-shock. Everything looks real like i reasearched it and everything but on the back side instead of having "shock resist" and that little g-shock logo on top of it, it has "shock resistant" but it has all the same lettering around the "shock resistant" like all the other g-shocks. It says DW-6900CB as well. I looks exactly like this one: http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900CB-1/
    Thanks.



  636.  

    Aramz,

    That all sounds good, but I need some good photos or other information to help you out. Where did you buy it from and how much was it?



  637.  

    I bought it from Macy's, and it cost me about $80 to $90. Ill try to put some pics up. It also came in a hexagon-shaped steel box.



  638.  

    It should always be safe to buy from Macy's.



  639.  

    Okay thanks homie.



  640.  

    Hi Riley,

    Just spotted this GLX-5500 G-lide on ebay. Seller only shows 1 self-made picture. Could this be real? Does it come normally come in the hexagon tin box?

    Link:
    http://cgi.ebay.nl/G-Shock-Glx-5500-G-lide-new-/180612369652?pt=NL_Horloges&hash=item2a0d560cf4

    Thanks a lot man!



  641.  

    Rhcdijks,

    It looks real. That seller doesn't really have any feedback though. G-Shocks just shipping in those black hexagonal tins. These round ones are normal too.



  642.  

    is it safe to buy from newegg.com?



  643.  

    hey i jus bought a G2300EB-7 g-shock off of shopcasio.com and i wanted to know if it is a safe website since i lost my tracking number, and im a little worried.



  644.  

    thien,

    I buy stuff from New Egg all the time. They're great. I've never bought G-Shocks from them before though. I would think they would be fine for that too.

    mmme167,

    I think Shop Casio is owned by Casio America, so it should be safe to buy from there. I've never tried them though.



  645.  

    Hi.

    I brought this G-Shock DW-6900CS-1ER from amazon.co.uk, I thought it looked ok apart from the back casing, heres some pics.

    It came in round steel tin all paper work etc. I'm just having doubts with the steel back case.



  646.  

    Jamie87,

    It looks real. Casio just started making a bunch of DW-6900 models in China instead of Thailand. And for some reason they changed the case back when they did this.



  647.  

    Nice 1 for getting back to me Riley.



  648.  

    hello, my G-shock finally arrived. It looks ok to me, what do you think? Thanks in advance
    Matt




  649.  

    pmatt,

    It looks real. You should be good.



  650.  

    thank you Riley!

    It came with the box and the instructions manual. So it is legit that they are made in China?



  651.  

    pmatt,

    Lots of real Casio G-Shocks are made in China. It just happens to be the country where all the fakes are probably made too.



  652.  

    thanks for your response. i have another question, is jomashop.com a reputable site? i read mixed reviews. its been acouple of days and i still havent received confirmation that they sent out my order. the watch i got (gwx5600) is also no longer pictured on the site.



  653.  

    thien,

    Jomashop sells real G-Shocks. I've heard that they don't have great customer service though. They have low prices.



  654.  

    hi ive been on here before and u helped me i was wondering if u could help me with this watch. is it a fake brand? replica?

    http://www.amazon.com/Croton-Steel-Automatic-Plated-SP399117SSSK/dp/B003Y2NLDO/ref=sr_1_35?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1295924989&sr=1-35

    Thank You



  655.  

    ali29,

    I don't really know much about those Croton watches. Amazon is usually a safe place to buy watches though.



  656.  



  657.  



  658.  

    g-harp1,

    That looks like the real DGK G-Shock collab. It's nice. :-!

    Where did you get it?



  659.  

    Cheers Riley,

    It's a lovely g-shock, got it from canada on eBay, link below. I've also bought a CASIO G-SHOCK G5500AL-1 ALIFE, will send you photos when its been delivered.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130475418938&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_1584wt_907



  660.  

    Hi Riley, can you tell me this is real or fake? I use this g-shock almost 7 years… :)





  661.  

    amar5984,

    It's looks real, but it's hard to tell from the poor condition. It seems to have lost its bezel and leaked some water due to a bad gasket.



  662.  

    I just bought a casio mtg 1000 1a from a vender on ebay, the watch retails for 400 and I bought it for 300. It has atomic time which updates daily so I figured that is hard to fake.. The only reason for my concern is the crappy packaging it came with as compared to some reviews I have seen on the web where it came in a nice tin or elegant box. All the dials and features work great, I know there are a lot of great swiss fakes out there and I need a second opinion for my piece of mind. Below are some pics of my watch The back of the watch has the 5022 in a square which corresponds to the Manuel if you look it up on casio web site.

  663.  

    smin41,

    It all looks real. I think you just ended up with the cheap version of the packaging. The box isn't great, but at least you get the watch stand. Amazon used to use the packaging a lot, but they seem to have moved away from it. It's just a smaller and lighter version, so it's cheaper to ship around the world.



  664.  

    Hey Riley,
    could you please check this one and say what you think. usually i try to buy from europe or usa but the tax when buying from stores are killing me. About 30-40% is taxes thats why i want to buy from hongkong since they mark it as gift and that way im not eligiable to tax for it, ofc they need to mark it with a lower price then i acually bought it for.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Casio-G-Shock-Militry-Men-Black-Watch-DW-6900MS-1-New-/370479416806?pt=AU_Watches&hash=item56424b45e6
    to be honest i just found out about these g shock watches, here in sweden its not very big like it is in the states, i got 2 already GA-100-1A2DR and GX-56-1AER which came in nice boxes and warranty cards. the GX also came in a metal box like ive seen on some of the pictures about but the GA-100 came in an ordinary paper box. bought from stores in france and USA

    thank you
    JImbo



  665.  

    Jimbo,

    It looks real. I don't know that eBay seller itechshophk though. And maybe that's a good price there, but I've seen these sell in the US for around $60 USD.



  666.  

    Thanks for the reply.
    cool, do you know any good ebayer that i could contact would be nice to get it for around 60-100 usd and maybe the can even mark it as a gift and not declare the value on the package.
    or maybe do you know any webshops based in EU? shipping within EU is no taxes either but the casio europe ship is like 2x the price in regular stores. porblem in sweden is that they only sell the orange and light blue dw6900. And i would love to find some place where i can get them cheap and real . for example the orange dw6900 is 200 us in sweden. on ebay maybe 50 which is a MASSIVE difference

    maybe this one would be better?

  667.  

    Hi Riley, i just bought G-9000-1V MUDMAN. Please check this is real or fake.




  668.  

    amar5984,

    It looks real. I think you're good.



  669.  

    I want to buy this watch online(Casio G-shock Redman),could you tell me if is real.Thanks you so much!



  670.  

    Mycr0,

    It's hard to make out the details around the watch face, but it looks real. I don't recall seeing any fakes of this model before, but it is a rare limited edition now, so be careful.



  671.  

    Hi Riley,

    Just recently bought this alife g-shock on ebay, is it the real deal?








  672.  

    g-harp1,

    That all looks right. I think you're good.



  673.  

    Hi.
    I think its REAL, but anyway…..
    (EBay, 50€, as good as new)



  674.  

    Tius,

    That looks like a real DW-6900. It looks like the old style plastic hexagon packaging from a while back. I think the lid is missing a piece maybe.



  675.  

    hi riley,
    is casio starting to make the 6900 series in china?



  676.  

    Yes, Casio has started to make more DW-6900 models in China. And some other models too. They have for a long time, but they seem to be increasing production there lately.



  677.  

    hi! riley is this fake????

    Im really new at buying a g-shock and this is gonna be my first one. Im 16 and just saved my first check for one of these. This the link to a g-shock on sale for $36 and it sounds too good to be true. Could you please tell me if its real so i dont get scamed out of my money?



  680.  

    g-shock_phil,

    That Guflman looks real.

    pc,

    Those are fakes. I would stay away from that site.

    scrappy,

    That DW-9052 is real. It's sold directly from Amazon, and it's a good deal.



  681.  

    Thank you so much Riley



  682.  


  683.  

    chelseafc,

    Those are real images of real GW-6900 G-Shock, but the seller watchgiant stole them from the Watch Tanaka website. They still might be legit, and just lazy, but it's not a good sign. I would try to find one on Amazon.



  684.  

    i just ordered this watch off jomashop.com:

    actual site: http://www.jomashop.com/casio-watch-dw5600e-1vs.html



  685.  

    paddy,

    Jomashop it alright, but amazon has that watch for a few cents more and free shipping.



  686.  

    ok thanks riley ill check it out.



  687.  


  688.  

    diggiediggie,

    That's got to be a fake Bape.



  689.  

    Hi riley i just bought my gshock off wlamat.com, the DW6900-1V i pretty sure its real i just want to know if walmart is legit for gshocks. and also i was wondering if you knew how many holes should be on a real gshock band?

    THanks in advance



  690.  

    gshocknewguy,

    Walmart is legit for G-Shocks. They have good prices, but not much of a selection usually.



  691.  

    Hi Riley, is this one real?



  692.  


  693.  

    chin,

    You should be safe buying that DW-6900SB G-Shock from Amazon. I don't know the third party seller Imperial Watches, but you still have Amazon's customer protection.



  694.  


  695.  


  696.  

    Amazon should be cool. Dexclusive is a good seller on Amazon.



  697.  

    ok thanks Riley :), i'll just go ahead and purchase it.



  698.  

    ayee riley just wondering if this g shock is fake Walmart



  699.  

    That's another Casio watch that's technically not a G-Shock, but it's real. Walmart is a safe place to buy from.



  700.  

    Help me, I can't tell if its real or fake!

    http://i567.photobucket.com/albums/ss118/lakersrule101/CIMG4200.jpg



  701.  

    Help!



  702.  

    kidcudi714,

    That looks like a fake Bape G-Shock. None of the Bapes out there for less than $200 are real.



  703.  

    hey riley im wondering if Sears sell real g-shocks would you know



  704.  

    SANDY_BIG,

    A big store like Sears should be a safe place to buy G-Shocks.



  705.  

    hi i bought a g shock watch and i would like to no if its fake or real he is the model number or something like that 0177/2000 would like to no asap thax



  706.  

    hi riley! is this one real or fake??? TIA! :) link



  707.  

    liween,

    You'll have to post a photo or something. That doesn't seem like a model number.

    1800vannie,

    That looks like a real Dee & Ricky, but I don't know about that ioffer site. I've seen lots of fakes on there, but I guess it's sort of like ebay. Be careful.



  708.  

    does G-101-1AVS has blue in colour with glowing green light..? i saw it in a store n curious to know whether is it an original g-shock or just a fake..



  709.  

    elias,

    I thought it was black in color. There might be a blue version though. It doesn't seem like a model that would be fake, but you never know.



  710.  

    Riley,

    Would this DW6900SB-8 be legit from this seller "iyork_com" from ebay, i’m buying from the UK and the seller is in the states, here’s the link



  711.  

    Jamie87,

    I don't know that eBay seller, but the photos look legit. Tiktox.com is a good place to buy from in the UK. Amazon is what I recommend in general though when possible.



  712.  

    hi riley..i'm from malaysia and really need your help here…try to check this out, it is a genuine model of protrek or fake?? because i'm on my way to make a deal to buy it from that store…please..



  713.  

    hi riley..i'm from malaysia and really need your help here…try to check this out: http://citytime.my/product_detail.php?product_id=1318…. it is a genuine model of protrek or fake?? because i'm on my way to make a deal to buy it from that store…please..



  714.  

    hafiz5455,

    That looks like a real Casio Protrek. I don't know that store though.



  715.  

    hey Riley, I just purchased a watch from ebay, and started doing more and more research and found out that there is fakes. Wish i would have known this before i bought it. but i just bought a GA110c-7a and i was wondering what should look at? I Don't have it yet i just ordered it yesterday from ebay. here is the link to the site maybe it will be of any help. Thank you for your time.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270710436814



  716.  


  717.  

    Goran_D,

    That's a stock image of a real GA-110. I don't know that eBay seller, but it's probably fine.

    ikidenjoi,

    You should be safe buying from Amazon.

    dear Riley,
    okay so my parents bought me what looks exactly this watch : http://mygshock.com/pics/fake-g-shock-2.jpg But the Back looks so legit!! and it's really Good Quality. also instead of saying forward it says Light and instead of reverse it says mode. HELP~!!!!



  719.  

    Hi Riley,
    I found this on Ebay- any idea if it's the real deal? Looks real enough, but would hate to buy a fake…
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Casio-Tough-Label-G-Shock-Watch-DW-003H-2T-Vintage-Rare-/220746227483?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3365801f1b#ht_1031wt_1139



  720.  

    etalvarez95,

    That photos is a fake. You can post a photo of yours if you would like me to check it out.

    Siddy,

    That looks like a real DW-003. It's probably pretty rare, but I don't think it's worth a huge amount of money. You might be able to get a good deal on it. I don't know anything about that seller though.



  721.  

    ok 1 sec



  722.  

    Hey Riley am i able to email it to you whats your email?



  723.  

    Is the black and red g shock fake?

    on ebay they are under "G-Shock Brand NEW"



  724.  

    etalvarez95,

    You need to use a service like Photobucket to post photos. It's free.

    csilva,

    Most of the "G-Shocks" on eBay are fake. That one is probably fake if they don't list a specific real model number.



  725.  


  726.  

    thestephanieeee5,

    I think those two Baby-G watches are probably real. It's hard to tell since they have dead batteries and you can't see the LCD digits. I don't know Baby-G models that well though.



  727.  

    thanks riley. couldn't really find anything on them except for the brown one and they were from uk sites. also the straps are different so maybe its pretty old i'm guessing?



  728.  

    so i found a gshock on ebay and after talking to a few people and trying to comapre pictures i cant seem to figure out if its real or not. The winning bid was at $58.50… it is the white G-Shock BAPE… Let me know what you think http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rt=nc&nma=true&item=260745432401&si=Ov2T99853MTNSYZE0cE14A4vzXE%253D&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT



  729.  

    nicoled40,

    It's hard to tell from that one lousy photo. The odds are that it's fake though. A real one is worth at least $200-300. A good seller would have put up a lot better photos. That seller only has three feedbacks, so I would stay far away. Only buy a Bape from a very reputable seller. There's a thousand fakes for every real one.



  730.  

    Thank you.



  731.  


  732.  

    whiteGshock,

    Only the first link works for me. It's a stock image of a real G-Shock. That seller User Avatar dreamshopee doesn't look great, but it looks like they at least sell real ones.



  733.  

    .



  734.  

    whiteGshock,

    WE can't see images from your AOL mail attachments. You need to use something like Photobucket.



  735.  

    Ok I apologize. I will post some soon.



  736.  

    I hope this works. Here are a few pics.



  737.  

    whiteGshock,

    It's real.



  738.  


  739.  

    trail18,

    That looks like a real DW-5600MS G-Shock. I don't know anything about that skiptomyshoe.com store though.



  740.  

    Hey, i am thinking of buying this but i dont no if its real or not, could u tell me? An sorry for the really lousey pics http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/rds/clo/2245804210.html



  741.  

    keeganchris,

    That's got to be a fake. It's a bad idea to try buying a Bape G-Shock from some stranger online.



  742.  


  743.  

    ssttyyz,

    That's a fake DW-6900. It looks like that eBay seller jewelz_2010 is no good.



  744.  

    hey riley,
    i saw you post very helpful im new 2 this so if u could help me out with these




  745.  

    westknown,

    It's hard to say for sure based on those photos, but I think those two G's are real. There hasn't been any fakes of those, and that looks like a real tin.



  746.  

    here are sime better angles just 2 be sure, also cab u tell me around how much they retail so i can have a idea, thanks



  747.  

    westknown,

    Looks good. I'm not sure about the retail prices. Probably around $100-130.



  748.  

    Hello, I just bought a watch from ebay, and now that i see this website, i think it's fake :( I really just want to punch this guy in the face…

    http://shop.ebay.com/bryceb91/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686



  749.  

    So, I purchased this watch on ebay, but I'm a little suspicious if its real or fake. Also, do you have any idea what model # this is?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&rt=nc&nma=true&item=260745414299&si=w3kwcbKH8IlycbKxbSP4%252Fk%252BmDDU%253D&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT

    It looks like a DW9052-2v, but doesn't have no yellow in it. Thanks for helping all of us ;)



  750.  

    samhalm,

    That sucks. It looks like that seller bryceb91 is selling fakes. You should report any fake scammers to eBay.

    CasioMan,

    It might possibly be real. It's hard to say from that one photo. What's the case back say?



  751.  

    I don't know yet…I'll report back with a pic in a week or so.



  752.  

    I just bought a g shock and the back just says "shock resistant" with no g shock logo also it's says made in china is it real
    It has casio in the front and back



  753.  

    lightsout,

    Yes, it could still be real. Casio recently changed the case back design for models made in China. So that's normal now.



  754.  

    I wanted to know is this G shock real?
    And I also want to know how to spot fake ones



  755.  

    Mclervius,

    I think that one is fake. What model number is it supposed to be?



  756.  

    DW-6900CC



  757.  

    Mclervius,

    There's no DW-6900CC in that color. Do a search in the Watch Archive.



  758.  

    I don't see it………….since it's fake what do I do with it???



  759.  

    http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/clo/2257303710.html">
    I WANT TO BUY 1
    IS IT REAL OR FAKE?
    I HAVE A FEELING IT IS
    CAN U HELP



  760.  

    AGUILAR_DA_BEAST,

    Finding a real Bape on Craigslist would be like winning the lottery. Especially for $40.

    Those are fake. Don't buy a Bape from some random guy on the internet.



  761.  

    Hello Riley

    Can you please tell me if these G-Shock's are fake.. thank you for your efford



  762.  

    citrico,

    Those are all fake.



  763.  

    hey Riley , i wanted to know if you can check this website and tell me if they are legit to buy g-shocks from them .http://www.princetonwatches.com/shop/CasioGShock.asp?p=aw&gshockdisplay&gclid=CKnJtbSw16cCFYPd4AodyR_n-A



  764.  

    Rangerboii94,

    Princeton watches sells real ones. They have good prices usually, but their service isn't always that great.



  765.  

    Thnxz Riley , cause i been from G-shock.com to Macys to Zumiez to EBay to Amazon to Jewlery Stores here in manhattan , and now to Princeton Watches lolz . i try to find the cheapest prices ever but keep it Real



  766.  

    Hey Riley: Just following through on this. pics posted of the back plate as well as front…

    I've learned a lot from this forum. Thanks so much. But as you can tell I still like the reassurance and know from you if this looks legit. Seller has a very solid rep. Good price right now that will maybe go up but figured its worth a shot.

    So again, real or fake?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Casio-GShock-Mirror-Face-RED-BAND-ORANGE-DIAL-DW6900CB4-/250790355860?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3a64452394

    Thanks so much!



  767.  

    watercrews22,

    It looks real. I don't know anything about that seller though.



  768.  

    Anyone know anything about the legitimacy of watchgrabber on ebay? I was looking at this, but theres just a stock picture.

    Thanks!



  769.  


  770.  

    emobaggage,

    I don't know that seller. It's hard to say with just a stock photo and not perfect feedback.

    kawa,

    The photos look good, but I don't know that seller hkexporter. Shipping from Hing Kong can take a while too.



  771.  

    Thanks Riley. Appreciate it!



  772.  

    helo there riley.. im from malaysia..
    asking this one real or not?
    http://www.mudah.my/G+shock+colour-8367492.htm?last=1

    cheers!



  773.  

    amirfahmi11,

    It looks like a fake. The real DW-6900CS looks different.



  774.  

    you have facebook? or ym or skype? can i ask you more?
    the owner i contacted claims that it is original and he blamed me for not knowing anything
    about g's



  775.  

    according to ebay it states
    7) Above the time on the watch, look at it. There should be a day of the week on it. Something like SU, or TH, or TU. The day of the week should be between the first 2 circles, and not directly underneath the 3rd circle. If its under the 3rd circle, its FAKE. Some really good fake ones do show the day of the week between the first two circles though be sure to read the other steps.

    well its true the watch has underneath the small circles. help me
    thanks



  776.  

    amirfahmi11,

    Just look at photos of a real one and compare:
    http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-6xxx/DW-6900CS-7/

    And only buy from a reputable dealer.



  777.  

    ok thanks!



  778.  

    do your G-shock have to Casio on causse mine do not



  779.  

    marc504,

    Most real G-Shocks say "Casio" on them somewhere. And you need to use a service like Photobucket to post photos.



  780.  

    well my G-shock dosnt hav casio on it….im going to try



  781.  

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CASIO-G-SHOCK-DW-6900-BAPE-WATCH-RED-COLOUR-/110663740315?pt=UK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches_MensWatches_GL&hash=item19c412ab9b#ht_3919wt_1139

    is this real or fake. if fake is it a good one? will it last, be noticeably fake to someone unfamiliar with the watch.
    thanks



  782.  

    the one whitegshock posted is the G-6900A-7 ryte?
    what is the difference betwwen this model and the dw 6900 cs-7? which one has extra functions?
    does these watch change time automatically in different time zones?



  783.  

    lemCorrin,

    It's fake. 99.99% of Bapes on eBay are probably fakes.

    amirfahmi11,

    The G-6900 and DW-6900 models look the same, but they have different modules inside. The G-6900 is solar powered and the features vary a little. Read the manuals for all the little differences.



  784.  

    Okay thanks, but is it a good one?



  785.  

    btw how can you tell it's fake?



  786.  

    Hey, do you think this one is real?

    Thanks!



  787.  


  788.  

    emobaggage,

    It's fake.

    GshockBilly,

    Fake too.



  789.  

    Thanks Riley. :D
    i received it today, it came WITH a box so maybe it's real…?
    The seller stated in the description that there was no box, but i received one.



  790.  

    k mine has evrything in a real g-shock but i noticed tht the g-shock logo on the back is a bit smaler than the other g-shocks. also the adjust button is not small like the normall g-shocks. is it real or fake?



  791.  

    http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=24dhmd5&s=7

    i was wondering if this g-shock rescue was a fake sorry about the quality my camera is bad but it looks like this with out the glare and stuff it also says casio then japan under casio on the metal bar for the strap



  792.  


  793.  

    chriss561,

    It's hard to say without seeing some photos, but that does sound suspicious.

    ayystarr,

    The image you linked to doesn't look right. The G button should be black with a red G.

    GshockBilly,

    That's a fake.



  794.  

    so is it a fake??



  795.  

    ayystarr,

    Looks fake. When in doubt, it's a fake. There's a billion fake 7900s out there now.



  796.  

    can you tell me if this one is fake here is the link thanks
    Link

    is it legit?



  797.  

    brett514,

    It looks like a real G5500 G-Lide. I don't know that seller and they have very little feedback though.



  798.  

    Hello. My name is Daniel from Manila, Philippines. I recently purchased 2 of these from Amazon, here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Casio-DW9052-1V-G-Shock-Classic-Digital/dp/B000GAYQLI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
    After few months of using it we decided to bring it to Time Depot here in Manila, Philippines. I was disappointed that the salesman told me my G-shock was a fake one. He compared the bracelet to a Mudman which is definitely and totally different model. I already emailed Amazon regarding my concern. I know the best store to buy online is thru Amazon that's why I just need to convince myself that what I bought is authentic.

    I hope you could reply to me soon.

    Thank you very much!

  799.  

    Just got my first G-Shock today, the GW3500B-1A. Looks legit, but it is my first so I can't be 100% if its real. Could you confirm it for me please? Pics

    It came in a tin, but the watch itself came packaged in a plastic bag, which one of the videos about finding real G-Shocks (the Transformer one) said would never happen with a real G-Shock. Also, the serial code under the barcode on the box is "C-MGSA61" while the serial on the bottom of the tin is "MP-MGSA5-1". Is this normal?

    Thanks a lot!



  800.  

    becklox6,

    That G on Amazon looks real. It it through a third party seller though and not Amazon direct.

    emobaggage,

    It all looks good. It is normal for G-Shocks to come wrapped in that plastic.

  803.  

    lupykostadinov,

    The photo looks like a real . I don't know that Hong Kong eBay seller though.

    wantg-shocks,

    That's a stock image of a real 6900 G. Shopemco is a well known reasonably good discount seller.



  804.  

    thnxxx cuz i wuz wonderin if its real or not…. now i can buy it without thinkin about tht



  805.  


  806.  

    wantg-shocks,

    That's a fake Bape. I wouldn't even think about buying a Bathing Ape G-Shock on eBay.



  807.  


  808.  

    laxcrazy517,

    It's a fake. There's no real DW-6900 that looks like that.



  809.  


  810.  


  811.  

    Yo what would you guys say about these ? http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/clo/2298223897.html
    Please reply asap as i really want these but am suspicious about price and he got no box so what do u say ?



  812.  

    alvario tht looks kinda fake but idk thts just my opinon



  813.  


  814.  

    bsak,

    Looks real. Don't know the seller.

    alvario,

    Fake! There seems to be a bunch of fakes on Craigslist lately.

    laxcrazy517,

    Those are stock images of real ones. The prices seem suspiciously low, but it could just be a good deal.



  815.  


  816.  

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300543246967&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    how about that one?
    is price is what makes me wonder as the other ones are about $15 more.
    also the seller



  817.  

    hye riley,, which one would you choose? base on functionality and design?



  818.  


  819.  

    lupykostadinov,

    That Mudman looks real. Don't know the eBay seller watchesdeals.

    bsak,

    Looks like a real DW6900MS.

    mirfahmi11,

    All three are good. It's up to you.



  820.  

    Hey Riley, I found this on Amazon but not sure if I should trust the seller(s) or not? If I can which do you suggest? And I think this model came out recently so there would be less chance of it being fake anyway right?

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock-Mirror-Metallic-DW6900NB-1/dp/B004RXHOXC/ref=sr_1_141?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1302004809&sr=1-141

    Also, would you trust this? I wouldn't expect them to be making fakes of these anyway, would they?

    http://www.amazon.com/G-Shock-Skullcandy-Limited-Smokin-Bundle/dp/B004LU6KLS/ref=sr_1_97?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1302007313&sr=1-97

    Sorry if the answers to these questions are obvious, it's just this article has gotten me scared about all the fake watches out there. xD



  821.  

    nDeavour,

    I don't know those sellers, but you should be covered by Amazon.



  822.  

    Hi Riley
    I'm looking for G-Shock, and i found something like this.
    GW7900. i know pics is poor quality but i already wrote and ask for better one.
    Price for this one i quite strange 499PLN = 166$.in shop you must pay something like 630PLN = 210$.
    Can u tell me if this one is legit ?



  823.  

    peteerparker,

    The photos make it hard to say for sure, but it looks real.



  824.  

    Hi,is there a fake of G9000MS MUDMAN thanks in advance if anyone reply.



  825.

    PLEASE-ANSWER-QUICK,

    Fake! Very fake.



  827.  

    Is this a real riseman? please help!



  828.

    That one is a fake too.



  831.  

    thanks a lot for answering my questions riley!
    i got a last one :
    among the the 3 model which i have poested? which one is the toughest? dw series or g-lide?



  832.  

    All real G-Shocks are rated for the same toughness. I wouldn't worry about that.



  833.  

    Hello Riley

    My name is andres and i'm from switzerland. I'm interested in a DW6900NB-7. I found a seller on ebay called "watchgiant". He has a good reputation on ebay and he's a top seller. But i'm not shure if this offer is the real deal…

    Sadly the pictures on his offering are stock images. But do you know something about him? Do you think i can trust him?

    Many thanks from switzerland

    Andres

  834.  

    andresherren,

    It looks real, but I don't know that seller and those photos almost look like stock images.



  835.  

    Okay Riley,
    My Friend Bought a G-Shock And It Said Illumination Instead Of Casio On The Top Of The Face Of The Watch, Is That Real? … and They Sold It To Him For £70 … I Think Thats Like $144 … Is It Fake?



  836.  

    kemikool,

    It's hard to say without seeing some photos.



  837.  

    hey riley, just saw the guide, awesome stuff. I kinda need your help, can you tell me whether this shock is real or not?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Casio-G-Shock-WHITE-DW6900NB-7-Eminem-METALLIC-NEW_W0QQitemZ250796330298QQihZ015QQcategoryZ31387QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    It kinda looks legit, however my concern is that the price is wayy to low for a genuine shock.

    Many Thanks,

    Peace,
    Jo



  838.  

    JoJoPerry,

    It looks real, butt he $110 shipping fee is BS.



  839.  

    i am trying to find this watch somewhere that accepts paypal but yet to find i have a link on amazon.ca for it but like i said i ened a site that will take paypal http://img.amazon.ca/images/I/41icnhiAcIL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

    that is the watch i want and the model number i think is G314RL4AV

    please reply!



  840.  

    i am new here and just wondering if this g-shock i have is real or fake..can anyone tell me please?? thanks in advance




  841.  

    that g shock looks fake because at the top of the front it does not say casio and that usually means its fake.



  842.  

    maathias,

    Yes, that's definitely a fake 6900.

    alexpwns,

    I don't really know where the best places to buy in Canada are. Dealers in Japan usually take Paypal, but they're not usually cheap either.



  843.  

    Hey Riley

    My Casio G-Shock DW-6900NB-7CR arrived today. I think it looks genuine. What do you think?

    thanks in advance



  844.  

    andresherren,

    Looks real. You're good.



  845.  

    thanks riley for your comment.

    Then i can recommend the ebay user "watchgiant". I bought two g-shocks from him



  846.  

    Hey Riley was thinking of purchasing this G-Lide from ebay as it seems to be reasonably cheap for what the watch is usually worth. Was wondering whether, in your opinion, this seller/deal looks legit and what G-Shock watches from places like Hong Kong off ebay usually work out as (real or fake)…

    Those all look real. I don't know any of those eBay sellers though. There's some good sellers in Hong Kong, but you have to be careful. There's good and bad sellers everywhere. And shipping time can take a lot longer from HK.



  849.  

    Riley,
    Cheers for the feedback but I've decided to be on the safe side and order one from amazon. I take it this one is 100% legit?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001DJ3A1S/ref=s9_simh_gw_p241_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1PAP151ZA5HC6JRJW27J&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294

    Cheers



  850.  

    jimmycrankie222,

    You should be fine buying from Amazon. It's through a third party seller, so you can check them out. Amazon should always be covering your purchases there though.

    is this real? not sure the model number etc.

    JamesApples,

    Looks like a fake.

    dontknow,

    Fake too. Stay away.



  855.  

    Hey Riley, I wanted to buy a GLS-5600KL-1 G-Shock model, but on the site it says, GLS-5600KL-1D. Should i be concerned? It also says,
    "We only sell 100% Brand New, Original & Authentic watches
    200% REFUND / Money Back including return postage if item is not Brand New or Original"
    would that mean it would be legit if they are willing to do a 200% refund?

    here is the link:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=360355831322&nma=true&rt=nc&si=Q5SbbMEHd6FSfi0a7EmabAeELag%253D

    from the photos from the link, does it look real and is the supplier reliable?



  856.  

    Shell-Shocked,

    It's a photo of a real G-Lide. I don't know about that seller watches-bay though.



  857.  

    Hey Riley, I wanted to buy some g-shock on craiglist but i feel like they're fake. can you please tell me if these are fake or not?

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/clo/2324171579.html

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/jwl/2329399574.html



  858.  

    RizkyFTW,

    The first one is fake. The second one looks real. Be careful buying on Craigslist.



  859.  

    Riley,

    Could you please tell me if this is a real Mudman, pics are a bit blurry.. Thank you for your time.




  860.  

    Gshocklove,

    That Mudman looks real.



  861.  

    Hey sorry to bother again but I was wondering if this was real since the first guy I showed sold it http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/clo/2337995281.html



  862.  

    RizkyFTW,

    It looks like a real DW-6900. But $80 is really high for a plain black one like this. They sell for around $45 new on Amazon.



  863.  

    I watched a review on youtube on this g5600a-7 and his shows the current time whilst in the timer mode but the watch I got off amazon only shows the initial timer setting.

    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G5600A-7-G-Shock-Digital-Resistant/dp/B002LYU60W/ref=sr_1_10?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1303419178&sr=1-10

    are they just different models? or is the watch on amazon a fake?



  864.  

    shazam,

    The one from Amazon should be real. Are you sure you're comparing the exact same models?



  865.  

    are g shock's from macy's jewelry store real?



  866.  

    Paper_Towel123,

    Yes, Macy's sells real G-Shocks. They are an authorized dealer.



  867.  


  868.  

    Mckein,

    It's a fake. It looks like the eBay seller onemoretimecuckoo posted a stock image of a real Riseman, but the rest of the photos of the actual watch show it to be a crappy fake.



  869.  

    Ok thank you!



  870.  

    Hi Riley, iv been searching for g shocks on this website and it is independant ( like Ebay ) and most do turn out to be fake but I have found a few that may be real, just wanted confirmation. Thanks in advance here are the links :

    http://www.ioffer.com/i/5pcs-nib-ape-bape-casio-g-shock-dw6900-yellow-watch-new-161299869

    http://www.ioffer.com/i/black-bape-casio-g-shock-dw6900-watch-bathing-ape-141214779

    Also if you do have time could you browse the website just to see if you can find authentic ones if these are not. I know most are fake on the website but I do feel some may be real. Thank you again.



  871.  

    YungStar,

    Fake. There's a ton of fake Bapes on eBay and ioffer. Real ones are extremely rare and expensive.



  872.  

    Thank you very much, Was there a certain common fake-ness in them? And also if you have any reliable websites, i have tried Amazon but could not find these style of G-Shocks and i really want these.



  873.  

    Hey riley, how can you tell a real white bape from a fake one? any details?
    please and thank you



  874.  

    beside what you put on your site.. how am i gonna spot a fake right there and then?? i saw this on craigslist and i wanna know if its a fake..

    http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/clo/2321763765.html



  875.  

    iNinja,

    Those tow look real in the photo. Be careful buying on Craigslist though. Make sure that's what you're actually getting.



  876.  

    my watch is hot pink, black & white, but i cant find any pictures, help me out?



  877.  

    hey riley i have the red bape and the white bape but i have no pics of them



  878.  

    You have to give me some photos or something if you want me to help you out. Most "Bapes" are fakes.



  879.  

    i'm bothered by this now… i really wish I knew about this site b4 buying this… please tell me if this is real or not…. On the the casio website, i realized that where it says world time, it says multiband g??? (on the casio site.) Also what bothers me is that on the buckle, it says casio china. my other g shocks says casio japan.

    Please make me feel good about this purchase…

  881.  

    CAquino625,

    That looks real. It's just the non-atomic version. And it's normal for Casio parts to be made in China.



  882.  


  883.  

    iamjsonlee,

    It's probably a fake. That photo is really lousy and there's no model number in the description.



  884.  

    If the guy is claiming that its authentic and it isnt, do you think he'll have to give me my money back?



  885.  

    Hi again Riley, What is the difference besides the look,between the Riseman and the GDF100-1A.
    Solar/battery any idea about the real life of the rechargeble ones ,9 months at full charge without light but for how many years will recharge.
    why is the price so different?
    and the last one… is this one real?
    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G9200-1-G-Shock-Digital-Resistant/dp/B0033TAU46/ref=sr_1_2?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1305249353&sr=1-2
    Thank you again.



  886.  

    Mckein,

    That G-Shock on Amazon is real.

    The GDF100 models don't have solar or atomic. You should compare the video reviews of each for more details.



  887.  

    Howdy ho! Can you tell me is it fake or not?
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/19/casion.jpg/

    zbuniorro,

    That's a fake Riseman!



  889.  

    Thanks a lot.



  890.  


  891.  

    JohnPaul,

    Those all seem to be real. I don't know any of those eBay sellers though. Buying from a seller in Japan with a lot of positive feedback is probably the safest way to go. Be really careful about condition and customer service issues when spending more than $200.



  892.  

    How do you spot fake mudman. Some guy wants to sell me a red one "mudman" and water 20 bar resist is in purple durl illuminator and mudman is in green and everything looks legit :(



  893.  

    Mudresist** is in green sorry



  894.  

    ricky831,

    Is it a G-9000MX-4?



  895.  

    Could you please tell me if this g shock is legit or not?
    it is off the sears website but its being sold by "mrwatch.com"

    http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_SPM3870594801P?prdNo=31

    thanks for your time! its appreciated



  896.  

    tommy315,

    I would think you would be safe buying through Sears, but I don't know how they do it with 3rd party sellers. That's a stock image of a real G-Shock.



  897.  


  898.  

    tysofly,

    I can see anything at that link. Try posting photos on Photobucket or something.



  899.

  901.  

    jason2011,

    That one one looks real. It looks sort of add those photos though.



  902.  

    My Friends Say That This One Is Fake ,

    http://www.casio.com/products/Timepiece/G-Shock/GWM850_Series/product/GWM850-7/

    Because They Said When You Press The Light Button It Gotta Have Alot Of Different Colors Showing On The Watch , But Mine Doesn't , It Only Shows Blue .

    PLEASE REPLY!!! PLEASE TELL ME IF IT'S FAKE OR NOT !?!



  903.  

    pickachu20,

    That's a real G-Shock. It's on Casio's site.

    Real G-Shocks usually only have one color backlight. It's the fakes that tend to have crazy different lights.



  904.  


  905.  

    antonio1441,

    That white 6900 copy is definitely fake.



  906.  

    how can you tell :/



  907.  

    its also fake if it lights up different colors right



  908.  

    Hi Riley
    I bought a dw6900nb a few weeks ago but am worried It is real cause it says made in Thailand on the back
    Thanks



  909.  

    It also has some letters on the back wristband
    Like 419p1216>Pur<



  910.  

    Hi riley,

    Is the frogman in the picture real or fake?thanks for for help:)

    http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260793579535



  911.  

    nubcase,

    It's normal for G-Shocks to be made in Thailand.

    zeth,

    It looks real.



  912.  


  913.  

    milbankflyer,

    It's a stock image of a real one. The price seems about right, but that seller has very little feedback.



  914.  

    My g shock says MTG- 960DA
    Does anyone no if my g shock is real???



  915.  

    hockeyking,

    That's a real model number. It's hard to say without seeing a pic though.



  916.  


  917.  

    who are some legit sellers but at a good price for em???



  918.  

    xxvansxxfreakxx,

    It's real. You should be good buying from Amazon.



  919.  

    Riley, First off thank you for doing this you are helping people out a lot. Okay so im pretty sure mine is real since i bought it from macy's. But mine came in the hexagon tin but that was it. No box or no instruction booklet. I can post pictures if you need but just wondering since i did buy it from macys it should be good correct. Also you seem to know a lot about g-shocks do you have in insight on the AWG101-1A? Any help would be much appreciated.



  920.  

    ^^^ this is for my above comment.

    pics here



  921.  

    CliveBixby,

    It's real. The hexagon tin is the normal one now. And it's also normal for Macy's to lose the box and manual, unfortunately.



  922.  

    i ve got a really important qestion - in malaysia i found sam dealers ( some of them are my friends) who are selling g shock, oakley glassses and some shoes. Their g shocks are for 50 myr ( 18$). They are saying that thease watches are original and this for 50 myr are replics ( original made in japan), but the same guys are selling some anotehr limited originals for 600 myr. Where is the difference??? On photos thease watches looks real and guess what - everybody buys them. Thousands of people ( thease are stores on facebook - store is showing on his profile photos of watches and if u whant to buy them u must write pm). So i contact with one o those shops and he said that he can send me to europe some watches if i will pay more for delivery ( he is only shipping to malaysia and singapure). So i want to buy 5 G -shocks but firstible i dont know what is a replica watch and secondly are they realy original. i cannot add any photo becouse they are on facebook. But their accounts are not blocked so for shure u've got facebook then u will can check it out. Write "G-shock forsale "( this is one of many stores but this guy told me that he can ship it to poland) thank u for answering :)



  923.  

    Hello Riley, just wanted to see if you could take a look at this link and let me know if this watch is real. My Gshock had the exact same type of packaging, but I thoght that it was strange that the tin was black instead of that beige/gold color that I've see in most unboxings of this watch. The sku number on the box is GW7900b-1cu, not GW7900B-1JF like on your site. Thanks for your help. http://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/casio-gw7900b-1-$99-00-a-533235-3.html



  924.  

    Hey Riley, could you be able to tell me if this mudman is legit? Please let me know as this is my first G-Shock and I really don't want a fake as my first. Thanks :)

  925.  

    thebigones11,

    It seems fine. Casio offers a variety of packaging and the last two letters of the model number vary normally.

    ajaaaax,

    That Mudman looks reall, but I don't know anything about that watchesdeals seller in Hong Kong.



  926.  

    Thanks for your time.



  927.  


  928.  

    collin,

    It looks like most of the G-Shocks on ioffer are fakes. I would stay away.



  929.  

    I think I bought a fake G-Shock. Was not aware this was an issue until I had already bought it.

    Here is the Ebay seller selling the same one.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/G-shock-g-7900-blue-/320714399762?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item4aac116012#ht_500wt_1156

    What are the thoughts here?



  930.  

    TomL,

    Please report any fake G-Shock sellers on eBay and get your money back. These fakes are technically illegal, but eBay seems to not care that much. There's lots of these scammers out there now so it's a big problem.



  931.  

    How do I go about reporting them on Ebay? Sorry for the dumb question.



  932.  


  933.  


  934.  

    nubcase,

    That one looks real. Don't know the seller though.

    lennakei,

    That one looks real too from what I can see in that photo.



  935.  

    Good afternoon Riley,

    How does this GW-9000 look to you?

    Thank you!

  938.  

    TheloniousFox,

    That Mudman looks real.

    dxle203,

    That Mudman looks real.

    Just check to make sure those eBay sellers are legit. Some scammers will ship you a different watch than in the photos.



  939.  

    PLZZZZzzzzzzzzz !!!

    Im From France and Im Gonna Buy The White G-shock In This Picture And So I Would Like To Know If Those G-Shocks (Models "6900") Are Real Or Fake please. Thank You Riley !! =D



  940.  

    Kash_Jey_Wr3cker,

    Those are all fakes. It looks like they tried doing some kind of weird 6900 and 7900 hybrid.



  941.  

    Damn……………

    shit i just buy it now , when i came at home i saw your reply .
    Aah.. Its Okay Thank You Riley.

    & GOD BLESS CHINA !! ;)



  942.  

    But Are U Sure ?? Pliiz Because the guy who selled me that tell me that its a derive because some 7900 also got the 3 circle on the top of the watch like the 6900..



  943.  

    Kash_Jey_Wr3cker,

    It is a fake, and it sounds like the seller is talking BS. Please report them and demand a refund. All of these fake sellers do not want to be caught cheating you.



  944.  

    it looks like the seller is legit from its feedback im glad its real, its my first gshock and i dont wanna get scammed cuz i bought on ebay



  945.  

    And This ?? REAL or FAKE ? He's Saying That They Are Real & New Models… Thanks Again ;D



  946.  

    Hi riley, I just wanted to know if this white bape was real or fake.this is the only picture i have of this one.

  947.  


  948.  

    And how do you know if its real or fake?



  949.  

    Kash_Jey_Wr3cker,

    The four in that photo look like real G-001s.

    bhasson913,

    It's hard to tell for sure from that photo. Most all Bapes online are fake though, so it's a big risk. I would only buy from the Bape store.

    kiara001,

    It's safe to buy from Macy's.



  950.  

    Thanks



  951.  


  952.  

    mRpRinC3,

    It's hard to say for sure from that one photo. But it seems real.



  953.  

    Hey Riley,
    The blue LRG g-shock has a couple of variations. I have seen some with "Casio" along the bottom of the face with "Life Colors" along the top. Another version has "Life Colors" along the bottom. Which is real? Thanks in advance for your time and expertise!



  954.  

    shortandhairy,

    I think they both are real. One is probably the Japanese version and the other one the export version. Not sure why. Just be sure to buy from a reputable dealer.



  955.  

    Thanks for the quick response! I'm not sure why they differ, either. The Casio website shows one version and the G-Shock website shows the other version. Oh well, they are both beautiful…I LOVE G-SHOCKS!!! Aloha from Hawaii!



  956.  


  957.  

    Hello Riley,
    Been studying your useful info very hard, but still can't decide if this is fake or not. He states it's real but in orange? REALLY want an orange one, so bought it on the hope its real.
    Any input would be appreciated as it's going to feel like a long wait for the postman.

    exalto,

    Looks fake. There's no orange 7900 yet.

    ggio20,

    It's hard to tell from those blurry photos. The digits look a little off, but it might just be the photo.

    achabacha322,

    It looks real. Lots of legit Casio watches are made in China now.



  961.  

    could you please advise me if the g-shocks on the picture are real or fakes?

    The back of my G-Shock really concerns me for whether it is fake or not. I got it at Macy's

    olilabbett,

    I'm pretty sure those are all fake Bapes.

    Helloo_KittyFTW,

    I can't view that image. Try Photobucket or something like that instead.



  964.  

    Hey Riley,

    Do you mind checking this one out for me?
    From what I know, it looks real. I'm just debating because of the price.

    maggienificent,

    The first one is a fake 6900. The second one is a real GD-100 though.



  980.  

    Hey Riley, could I get your contact info (email)? I wanted to show you some pictures to find out if it is authentic.



  981.  

    Hey Riley, did you get my email with pictures of the watch? If you did, please get back to me… Thanks.



  982.  


  983.  

    andrewjosephx,

    It's real. You should be safe buying from Amazon.



  984.  

    Hi Riley,

    I am planning of bidding for this watch, is this authentic or a fake? thank you!

  985.  

    Riley, fake or real and please tell me the model of the g shock thanks.

    my friend said he bought it from asos.com, they dont sell them anymore. (the picturess are taken by me)



  986.  

    jayfer,

    Looks authentic. I don't know that Hold Kong eBay seller itechshophk though.

    stah,

    That's a fake 6900 copy.



  987.  

    Riley,

    It's hard to tell from these blurry photos, but do you think this is real?

    I asked for the model number and he said it was a GLX5600-1. So I compared the model with the Casio website picture, and it looks correct.

  988.  

    Drizzy,

    It looks real I guess. Crap photos though. It's a GLX-5600-4.



  989.  

    Riley,

    My man, can you check out ebay seller bbtiesto and soulglide2007. I got a few website also. Can you check those out as well: beso.com, c2coffer.com(i'm pretty positive there's fakes floatin around there), seiyajapan.com, karmaloop.com, and mltd.com

    Thanks bro



  990.  

    INeedNewGs,

    SeiyaJapan is excellent. Bbtiesto and soulglide2007 sell real G-Shocks, but there might be condition issues, so be very careful about used ones. I've heard of Karamloop, but never bought from them. They should be legit. I don't know anything about the other sites.



  991.  

    Riley,

    Sweet ! Thanks man.
    Do you know if the red atmos DW-6900 droppin in august will be for sale on gshock.com ? Cus i never see anything on there that you can actually put in an online shoppin cart and buy.



  992.  

    I found this Frogman in my countrie but I'm not sure abot the display
    http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.mx/MLM-66642649-reloj-casio-g-shock-frogman-dw-8200-_JM
    pls tell if it's real or not thank you :)



  993.  

    Hey guys,
    I am new to buying G-Shocks, and buying online is the only option in Australia with the lack of models and high prices, I am currently looking at the GA110C-7A model in white.
    I've searched around the some forums and still nervous bout if they are legit

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Casio-G-Shock-XL-ANA-DIGI-White-Watch-GA110C-7A-/120747419926?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item1c1d1b6916

    http://www.skywatches.com.sg/reviews/casio-g-shock-world-time-alarm-watch-ga-110c-7a-ga110c.htm

    If these are fakes and anyone recommend some sites, ebay users that sell real g-shocks and ship to Australia.
    Thanks



  994.  

    INeedNewGs,

    The gshock.com store isn't too great and they charge full retail price. You are usually better off buying from a good discount seller like Amazon.

    Evilernie,

    That's a fake frog.

    Patiie,

    The images are of real G-Shocks. I don't know about those sellers though.



  995.  

    Yea i was looking for one on the gshock site, and the pictures are all the same, do you have any sites or ebay sellers you know that sell real ones



  996.  

    Hey riley i have been looking at g-shocks of alibaba and a sellers name on there is http://unioncameraltd.en.alibaba.com/memberhome/sample/244286451/200079744/contactinfo.html
    Never mind thats the link but i want tO know if he is legit?thanks



  997.  

    Patiie,

    Check out the buying guide page in the G-Shock Wiki:
    http://mygshock.com/wiki/Buying_and_Selling_G-Shocks

    mrzesty,

    I don't know that seller, and I don't see any watches he has for sale on that page.



  998.  

    RILEY: You are awesome! This site is great and I don't know how you find time to help all these people. Bless You.I love watches and I picked up this g-shock at a yard sale (no Box) so I won't jump off a cliff if it's fake. Like a hangnail it's bothering me because I can't find this exact color+style+band ANYWHERE! I'll put a link to a front/back pic. It just has 1659 and DW-9000 ST. STEEL MADE IN THAILAND etc. It's infuriating because I'm wasting valuable time to determine if a $2 purchase was worth it. My mind says special edition but…….Yeah Right. Thanks i TRIED TO MAKE PIC SMALL BUT I PUT ADDITIONAL LINKS TO MYU FLICK PHOTOSTREAM.

    LINK



  999.  

    I HOPE THAT WORKED. IM NEW TO THIS FLICKR STUFF



  1000.  

    ddolan,

    It's worth more than $2, but I don't think it's super rare or anything. It probably came out around 10 years ago as an export model in the US.



  1001.  

    i am sorry riley there is like 40 diffrent g shocks on the page and this is the link
    http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/244286451/BGR_300_1_G_Shock_watch.html

  1003.  

    Hi there, I found this G-shock watch on Ebay… could you please tell me if it is real or not? the seller told me it is genuine but after realising that there are many fakes out there, I am not sure. The link is: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170670654087&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    Item number: 170670654087

    Thanks



  1004.  


  1005.  

    hey riley i am sorry for commenting so many time but are the 9200 series on http://dstoptrade.com/
    real or fake
    thanks



  1006.  

    mrzesty,

    I'm not seeing anything good on those sites. Stick to known legitimate places.

    rrojas,

    That 6900 is real.

    georgeios1,

    Those are photos of a real GD-100MS

    trinh_anthony,

    Those are all fakes.



  1007.  


  1008.  


  1009.  

    How do you know they're fake?



  1010.  

    mrzesty,

    That's a real Riseman. Amazon is safe.

    Patiie,

    That's a real GA110. Msgdistributors is safe.

    trinh_anthony,

    Look above. I know my G-Shocks.



  1011.  


  1012.  

    mikewuzhere,

    Those two GLX6900 G-Shocks are real. You should be safe buying from Amazon, but it is a third party seller I don't know. Yous still get Amazon's money back guarantee though.



  1013.  

    so u sure the $73 g shock is real it looks fake



  1014.  

    whats the big diffrence between the GDF100-1A and the GW9200-1?



  1015.  

    Riley can you tell me if both of these G shocks are real i know how to spot fake G shocks but the second one looks different but it could just be the picture quality

    http://www.amazon.com/G-Shock-Chronograph-Resin-Mirror-DW6900CB-4/dp/B003CJ73LK?tag=idolsintheworld-20

    http://www.amazon.com/G-Shock-6900-Classic-Watch-Size/dp/B003G38Q0E/ref=pd_sbs_watch_1

    Thanks



  1016.  

    Hi Riley,
    what about this one:
    Casio G-shock DW-6900MS-1DR
    REAL or FAKE???
    Bought in Jakarta, Indonesia
    No G shock resist logo on the back plate, just casio, 1289x and shock resistant, made in china

    Thanks

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REjoYFkBd4I



  1017.  

    hi riley,
    im gonna buy a casio g-shock GA100-1A1DR (stealth black) from a guy whom i met in the internet, though he do meet ups i want to be sure if it is the real thing, can you help me what to look for in this particular model and do you have any idea how much is it????
    much thanks..



  1018.  

    Tunechi,

    Those are both real. Just lousy images.

    dunkdunk,

    It looks real. Casio changed the design when moving production from Thailand to China.

    ove28,

    Just make sure it looks exactly like the real photos.



  1019.  


  1020.  


  1021.  

    Justin77,

    Those all look real. Amazon is safe. I don't know about that eBay seller a1aseller though. It's just a stock image.



  1022.  


  1023.  

    justinparsons,

    It looks real, but it's hard to say for sure from that one photo of the backside.



  1024.  


  1025.  

    justinparsons,

    That DW6900MS looks real.



  1026.  

    Hi I just want to know your opinion if you think this guy is a legit seller for this Gshock: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320721240452&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_501wt_1064

    The price seems really low considering it retails for about 120 but it says he is based in New York and has very good feedback.



  1027.  

    riley i wanna know where u can buy the gw-9200pj-7jf and how much it would be?thanks



  1028.  

    Palmtree,

    It's a stock image of a real G. I don't know the seller.

    mrzesty,

    Try a dealer in Japan.



  1029.  

    Hi Riley,

    Can you help me on this?
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003URWNBO

    I just recently ordered this GWX5600B-7CR in amazon but under Altivo Timepieces. Is this real or fake?

    And am planning to purchase this one also under amazon seller

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GAYQKY/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    By the way, your site is very valuable for us. Thank you and hoping for your immediate response.



  1030.  

    estong,

    It should be safe to buy G-Shocks from Amazon.



  1031.  

    Sir Riley,

    Yes, its amazon but under 3rd party seller Altivo Timepieces (1st link). Is it safe?

    And the 2nd link i understand its direct from amazon so it should be safe. Thanks again



  1032.  

    Hello Riley, I wanted to ask you if this watch in the link is authentic/real. Really would appreciated you feedback on what you think about it. Thanks!
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320737649868&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT



  1033.  

    estong,

    Amazon should cover you with their return policy even through third party sellers.

    richard,

    It's probably a fake Bape. I wouldn't try to buy one off eBay. There's 10,000 fakes for every real one. $161 is an awful lot for a fake, and it's way too cheap for a real one.



  1034.  

    Are you assuming it's fake because it went for a low price? Are the looks of the watch fake as well though? Thanks for your response!



  1035.  

    Also, I wanted to ask how much an authentic watch like the one in the auction would go for. Thanks!



  1036.  

    See above and the rest of the site for more information on Bapes.

    Real ones have a retail price of $250 and sell out almost immediately. They only make a few hundred of each and they go up in value over time. They usually range up to the $500-600.



  1037.  

    Hi Riley, I'm planning to buy a G-Shock and I was wondering if you could help me out, there's this website in the Philippines that you can look for anything that you want to buy and I saw this G-Shock and I was wondering if its real, they have images on, but I was doubting the last image because the picture is a little blurred and it's the back part. So I was kinda hoping you could help me.



  1038.  

    Btw, here's the website http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/3900496/CASIO+G-SHOCK+GD-100-1B+1000%25+ORIGINAL+AND+BRAND+NEW!!?referralKeywords=g+shock

    I couldn't see it on my previous comment so I pasted it on a new one.



  1039.  

    hans91188,

    Not the best pics, but it seems real. I don't know that site.



  1040.  

    riley is this fake ??
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002LZ09X0/ref=oss_product
    just want to check before i buy it



  1041.  

    dang1997,

    It's a stock image of a real one. Amazon should be safe.



  1042.  

    kudos to Riley for helping these people to determine their g-shocks are fake or genuine. :)
    im new to g-shock myself…bought my 1st g-shock last month. it's a Gulfman Men In Dark Purple Edition. and im very happy with it. planning to get another one coz i think i've become addicted to these g-shocks, especially Gulfmans.

    oh and hello to all g-shockers! :D

    -vampy-



  1043.  


  1044.  

    And when i checked this model GWX5600B-7CR in your G-shock watch archive, i can't find any except this model GWX-5600B-7JF. Model number is the same except the last two digits. thanks again



  1045.  

    estong,

    Those are real. The last two letters just signify the regional market the G-Shock is released in. JF is for Japan.



  1046.  

    Hey riley…
    Just a quick question…so I went to the official Casio website and I was looking through their g-shocks, andI noticed that the white g-shocks don't have a white background(I don't what it's called, but I mean the inside part lol). All the white g-shocks have it in black. So if I buy a g-shock with the white "background" is it fake?



  1047.  

    cooookiemonnster123,

    I'm not sure what you mean. There's lots of G-Shocks, and it depends on which one you are talking about.



  1048.  

    riley im not sure if i should purchase this watch or not but is this fake or real, because the price seems so cheap http://www.ioffer.com/i/bape-casio-g-shock-dw6900-watch-a-bathing-ape-red-new-92062236 or http://www.ioffer.com/i/ape-bape-x-casio-g-shock-dw-6900-dw6900-red-watch-97498793



  1049.  

    007ayman,

    Those are fakes. You are not going to get a real Bape for $28. See above.



  1050.  


  1051.  

    justinparsons,

    Looks real.



  1052.  

    thanks



  1053.  

    i bought a g shock GA-110-BCR from macy's and on the buckle is says Thailand instead of Japan is that normal ?



  1054.  

    exiledfox,

    You should be fine buying from Macy's. Casio makes a bunch of parts in Thailand too.



  1055.  


  1056.  

    butchick,

    It's a real DW6900CB.



  1057.  

    hey i just bought this gshock recently and im wondering if its real or not, im pretty sure its legit but not sure. i know the pics arent great. also you cant see in this picture but the metal buckle in the picture does have "casio japan" on it

    https://picasaweb.google.com/111655036285603312175/SKSales?authkey=Gv1sRgCJzTtIafhO2YjwE#5643491186724954370



  1058.  

    also the back says

    1289 DW-6900CC ..im guessing thats the model # ?



  1059.  

    i want to buy this watch…
    just wondering is it fake or not…
    hope u could help me…

  1067.  

    Wh33ls,

    Looks real.



  1068.  


  1069.  

    justinparsons,

    You need to upload the photos to Photobucket or something, so we can see them.



  1070.  

    riley y some have casio in the correct place but are fake
