    By far the best G-Shock replica's I've ever come across. Scary..
    Still easily identifiable of course, but the usual fakes are a level or two below these ones.

    The matrix date window gives it away first, as that's definitely not right. Then the case back outer ring of text is too far away from the engraved circle. And I don't think the model number on the case back is correct.

    Does it say Casio above the Shock Resist logo top left? I can't tell from here.

    Oh, and final observation. The buttons stick out enough to be usable , unlike the current genuine 5600s

    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Grated, they are still easily spot-able to the eyes of the G-Philes but what about the newbies? These fakes prove that they are getting better! So, what's next? Look at some more:

    Newbies are always the target for fakes, not the knowledgeable enthusiast. Whether it's watches, handbags, shoes or clothing, fakes are there to please people who wouldn't know whether they have a real one or not in their hand.

    But it amazes me that people continue to think that an item which is offered at a tenth of the price of the best street price can be genuine.

    I reported the listing and the seller. Any eBay member should do so as well.

    I do think that there are some people who are naive enough to think they are just getting a really good deal. But, I think far more folks know full well that they are buying a good fake. Consider that many people have always worn "costume jewelry" and this is really no different in their eyes in that they can appear to have a nice, stylish watch on their wrist and only pay a fraction of the price. Most of these people could care less if the thing even keeps time, so long as it looks like the watch they saw on Ke$ha or Justin Bieber while watching MTV.

    Of course I don't condone or like any of this activity, but I just think that's where the market for fake G's is.

    I have done this countless times even telling them how they can see it's fake and not once has ebay removed the listing. Sad, really.
