    G-AVIATION GWA1000A-1A (JF)...3 QUESTIONS???

    Why the wide eBay price variances($390 > $879)...Japanese are highest?
    This version not listed on the North American website?
    Have any GWA1000 series fakes surfaced?
    This is my preference of the 7 releases...paid $390 USD shipped from NYC.

    Not sure why the variation. I purchased this model from Chino Watch for $568 US which seems about right for this model. $800 is way too much IMO. Its not a rare piece and can be sourced from good reputable online seller for far less. $380 seems a bit cheap. Did you research a bit to ensure it's legit?

    Not sure about any fakes. Looks like you have already pulled the pin on a model for $390, so hopefully you got a really good deal.

    I may stand corrected but I think this particular model is a Japanese release only, thus the (JF) in the model number.

    $390 is the going price from US eBay sellers.
    Bought mine from a Top Rated Plus NYC watch dealer...operates perfectly.
    There is a wide price variance across the entire GWA1000 range.
    Seems like Japs sell @ inflated prices that some are willing to pay.
    Still RAF's available.
    Quite a few "D's" from China at the moment...bidding out about $350.

    I agree ebay will sell for a bit cheaper than online stores. I suppose if they inflate prices some people may see that as being ok to pay with the assumption the cheap ones aren't legit. Plays on people idea of you get what you pay for and I am sure some who do little research will pay the higher price.

    I had one or two bad experiences so I will happily pay a bit extra if I know I am getting it from a reliable source, such as Chino watch or Seiya for example. But that's just me. I didn't see the pic when I posted earlier but looks like your getting a good deal there. Watch looks legit to me.

    I love mine, looks great, one of the best g-shocks I have ever owned you won't be disappointed!

    Scored a 1000D on eBay this morning for $152.50 USD - free shipping Hong Kong
    Maybe deal of the year...eBay link below. Still curious about potential fakes.

    New seller, sure I was suspect.
    He had five 1000D's listed for auction, all ending in a 10 minute span. Maybe tossed them in his lunchbox when he left the Casio factory.
    If it doesn't show, I'm PayPal protected.

    Fake has been spotted in Malaysia by a friend before. What gave it away was the wrong model number on the case back and the crown fell off when he was playing with it! Beware of dodgy ebay sales.
