    Beware: Jason fake

    Dunno if it has already been posted, but it's the first time I see a Jason Fake. Well, I'm not sure, but looks like a fake to me.

    Well spotted! Definitely fake. It doesnt have the silver holes on the strap.

    The color of the backcase is also purple in real live. The ad shows a more brown color.
    The small displays are red on the real one.
    Lettering on the real one is purple not blue.

    Another big difference: The fake one has a positive display whereas the real deal is a negative one.

    In some pics the display looks negative and in some positive. Although, if it is negative, it is a very strange kind of negative.

    It's absolutely original, but it does have a negative display, the numbers will light up instead of the rest of the screen around it.
    Casio have also been using these kind of negative displays on various crazy colors models.

    The top displays are actually different colors on the original Jason on this particular model.
    Unique negative display is really cool.

    The model number is G-001-2. The display is a so-called "mirrored display" - not really negative. From a certain angle the digits look like "holes" in the display. But the backlight is "normal" (as can be seen from sharkfin's post). The watch is huge but I don't know if the strap is long enough for 8''.
