    legitimate E bay stores (want a particular watch but want to avoid a fake)

    Hi guys

    I really want to get a g-shock DW5600MS-1. (i really like the all black design, even the g-shock and protection logo, buttons and strap clasp are blackened, i like it.), there are plenty on E bay (and on US sites but here in the UK it is a difficult watch to source from a reliable retailer).

    could anyone point out some proven genuine E-bayers from HK/Singapore etc where I could get this watch please

    I can find some links to sellers who offer this watch if that helps but i thought there might be some well known legitimate E bay sellers who we can trust.



    many thanks as usual, appreciate any help

    Why not get it from Amazon? It is not a rare or expensive model, so I doubt fakes exist of it, but you never know. Generally checking a seller's feedback is the best approach. If any single person has accused them of selling a fake, then avoid.

    there is a reasonably (similar to e-bay) priced one on there but there are some unhappy customers so don't want to use them. (amazon.uk this is)

    the other amazon sellers are a lot more money than the e-bay prices and i am on a limited budget. believe me, amazon is my first stop for anything like this and e-bay is my last resort

    I found this one:

    Casio Men's Black Dial Black Strap G-Shock Mat Black Red Eye Watch

    Perhaps thats a good place to order from and the price seems reasonable!

    But your fear of eBay is a little unnecessary, most watches that are sold there are still legit. But to avoid fakes, you can always take help from here. If you receive a fake the best option is to open a PayPal dispute and then claim the item never arrived. PayPal will almost always side with the buyer and pay you your money back on INR (Item Not Received) claims.

    I got mine from ebay seller "lucky123shop" - shipping took a while from Hong-Kong but all was fine. I already bought three watches from this seller - he's legit. Unfortunately he has no DW-5600MS right now.

    No, but the link is through German ebay - the seller is Hong-Kong based. This one looks legit, too:
    DW-5600MS-1 G-Shock Military Series Black Watch CASIO on eBay (end time 03-Feb-11 16:21:05 GMT)
    All I'd do is have a little look on the feedback - should be 99% or better I think. In this case I think you can't go wrong.
    best search string to use is this: (dw5600ms*,dw-5600ms*)
