    New dw6900ms made in China?

    Hey WUS crew. Just wanted to ask a quick question here. I know a lot of g shock production is done in China, but with so many fakes out there I thought better be safe...

    so I bought a 6900ms on ebay from a reputable dealer and was surprised when it arrived that its caseback read that it was a made in China. That doesn't bother me as much as the drastically different styling of the caseback and lack of the shock resist stamp logo? Anyone else got one that looks like mine here? (these pics are from my phone, and sure, the watch could have used a quick wipe with a cloth!)





    Just wanted to get some input, or know if I had been duped so I could return it? The build quality is great and my gut tells me its real, but like I said, better safe than sorry!

    Hi, i've got a DW6900 as well, maybe 8 yrs old by now. It's also made in China and has a comparable back as yours. I wouldn't worry about it, just enjoy!

    Does your 6900ms comes with a black plastic buckle or a metal buckle? That old 6900 I used to own that's made in china comes with a black plastic buckle.

    BTW my current 6900MS says made in thailand and it does have that 'Shock Resist' logo.

    Re: New dw6900ms made in China?

    What a coincidence, the DW-6900MS I purchased from Macy's last week is also made in China...I was very surprised that it was made there as it is supposed to be a more limited edition watch with a somewhat higher price tag, but it looks like the new stock of these watches are made in China. My DW-6900MS looks exactly like the made in Thailand versions with the black buckle and all, save for the different etching on the caseback.

    Recent discussions on the Made in China v. Thailand DW-5600 made me wish my DW-6900MS was made in Thailand, but the quality seems to be on par with my GW-M5600 which is made in Thailand.

    If it's any relief, Seiko's new (2009) Digital World Time model is also 'made in China' ! This is a $300+ watch...

    No complaints on my "Made in China" DW-6600 (sold it anyway 'cause it got no wrist-time). Was every bit as good as any other G-Shock.

    Truth be told, there are many fine watches made in China.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    It makes no difference where it's made as long as it's made to Casio's specifications.
