    Question verifying my new Ecozilla

    Good day WUS'ers!

    So, I recently acquired an Ecozilla and I have a small question that maybe you guys can help me with. It definitely looks and feels mostly like the real deal, but I have a small issue with the case back that I haven't gotten decent confirmation on. So, most BJ8050-08E's I've seen have all the information on the case back deeply engraved on it. Mine is more like everything is laser etched in. I have seen some with everything else engraved deeply but the serial number etched, but this one has everything etched (Company name, warnings, calibre number, etc). I'm not sure if that's something that much more recent iterations of this Ecozilla have, or if I have been bamboozled. Hopefully, you guys can help me out. Below are photos. Thanks.

    I currently have one and this looks legit. Does the Diver on the caseback feel sharp to the touch? Run your thumb across it.

    It feels raised, but smooth to me. I imagine if it was sharp to the touch, it would be uncomfortable on my wrist.

    Re: Question verifying my new Ecozilla

    I can't open your pics completely using the Tapatalk app. Is this a new item or used? The presentation box is a Pelican type case? The 2016 version of the ecozilla with the DLC bezel comes with this box. Mine didn't come in such a case. Just from the pics, it looks real but I can be 100% certain. Perhaps other Zill owners will chime in throughout the day and offer more answers for you.

    It's new in box with tags and everything, but it was from eBay, so I'm just trying to be doubly sure. I've seen some of the original Ecozilla's sell in the pelican case like this. The only real issue I had was with the marking on the back (the laser etching vs the engraving). Everything else seems consistent with how the Ecozilla functions (lume and all), so maybe I'm being a bit too paranoid.

    I don't think counterfeiters have the resources to do laser etching. The fake Citizen Nighthawks can be distinguished by the caseback being engraved rather than laser etched, so laser etching is a good thing.

    Wait I've changed my mind, it's 100% fake, a useless piece of junk not worthy of your wrist. But I will help you out and buy it from you for $25.
