    I don't recall ever seeing any fake GS-1100-1A G-Shocks. You probably just got a really good deal, but post some photos to make sure. We'd all like to check it out anyway.

    Here's the stock image of one:

    I've never seen or heard of a fake Giez either. They're too complex for fakers, I think.

    If yours does what a Giez is supposed to do, it's a Giez.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    About a year ago you could get quite a few of those for 199 Euros from German eBay sellers, which meant a discount of a full 100 Euros compared to the local list price.

    I managed to get my GIEZ GS-1100D for about 214 Euros (converted from British Pounds), which was almost 200 Euros below the German list price of 399 Euros.

    Therefore, I would not say that your deal sounds strange.

    Yes, it sounds like you got a good deal. Prices do fluctuate. Some of the guys here have picked up Gs from places like Macy's for mere dollars with all the discounts thrown in.

    There's MSRP and then there's street price. This applies to pretty much ALL products, not just watches. Post a picture of your Giez if you're still unsure.

    Your GIEZ looks fine to me. Did you get it brand-new or second-hand?
