    It looks like a fake Frogman on a big swedish auction site - help me out

    Hello there.
    Please help me out. On this swedish auction site, at one of the biggest and most trusted auction houses in Sweden, it seems that they are trying to sell an fake Frogman. It is very well done (marked with pure Casio Logo and Frogman brand) but look on the digital numbers and expecially the letter 7 it doesn't like Casio-ish. And Casio don't use that kind of screws, right? If we can certify for sure it is a fake (I'm 99,9 percent sure but want to be 100) I will go and tell them that they are trying to sell an fake Frogman. I also know that Frogmans are quite expensive (don't know why actually...) and this auction starts at 50 swedish crowns that is 6 US dollars $

    Besides from the 7 letter and the screws, what are the fake things you see on the picture, that isn't on a regular Frogman? (I am not so used to handle and see Frogman's and not old ones, they are claiming that this one is from 2008)

    For one, it says "chock resist", on the dial face. Font is wrong. The three dials are wrong. It is rubbish.

    Reminds me on a nearby 'Japanese' restaurant with it's name misspelled. Of course it is run by non-Japanese people.

    No worries, brother! You knew it was wrong. Can't hurt to double check.

    Another give away for fake G's is if you see the top left button isn't "Adjust", this one has it for the light.

    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    Embarrassing for the auction house as this piece even made it far enough to be listed.
