    Broken Casio

    I bought this from a WUS member in Jan. 2011 on the private sales forum. That person is no longer here or I probably would not post this. This model was being ripped off quite a bit but there was a video on youtube.com that showed a way to watch the operation of the stopwatch function subdial to tell if this Edifice was genuine or not. This watch passed that test. Do you think it is a real Casio? Would we see a real Casio with the 3 o'clock marker fallen off (evident in picture)? This watch is Edifice EFX-500SP-1A, or at least it is supposed to be.. LOL.... Your thoughts would be appreciated. ---Gawain (no stranger to Casio watches)

    I know exactly 0.3 zilch about Edifice models, but a defective dial doesn't necessarily mean it's a fake.

    I think it's genuine, the hour marker on a watch could come off, it's not often but not impossible.

    Thanks lvt! I've never heard of such a thing, but I agree with your statement.

    Re: Broken Casio

    First time I've ever seen that on a Casio (seen it many times with mechanicals, from Seiko to Omega to Tissot), but there's always a first. I've never toke apart an Edifice, but if they're straightforward as Gs it won't be hard to fix it yourself.
    Just be careful with what and how much glue you use.

    Re: Broken Casio

    Looks genuine to me.

    Marker falling off is indeed very dissapointing for a watch collector, but it's nothing major. It happens to a lot of models, even saw it on IWC and Omega.

    Seems like they used not enough glue to hold it in place or watch has been bumped into something?

    It's an easy fix, matter of opening up the watch, glueing it back and closing. The worst thing that could happen is to leave some dust or debris on inside of crystal when putting watch back together I should know lol...

    Re: Broken Casio

    Looks genuine to me.

    Needs just a fraction of glue between the two little holes the marker's feet go into on the dial. Actually recommend you apply it with a pin or needle - that fine an amount!

    Good luck.
