    Is This For Real

    Found this on ebay and seems too good to be true. I don't know enough about them to spot fakes. Help a brother out.

    Looks legit. Those have been very cheap on German ebay for a long time. Looks like price is dropping on ebay.com too. It seems to me those were never very popular.

    3 reasons to go for it:

    1) The pictures show a genuine MIRO Gulfman
    2) Look at that feedback!
    3) You can still find these at some Macy's locations if you look hard enough

    Price is right, but if I'm not mistaken, the MIRO Gulfman is Atomic. This is the non atomic version in orange. I believe all the watches in the "MIRO" series have an axe in the EL. This one won't. But still...$100 is a good price for this watch.

    Edit: I retract this statement...after further review, there were non-atomic MIRO Gulfman released outside of Japan. So, this one may or may not have the axe in the EL!

    if there is any left at Macys, its original price would be 140

    this is non-solar non-atomic version, battery lasts 7 year according to gshock.com

    It's not a MIRO Gulfman, but an overseas only Rescue-G model. The MIRO models are Atomic, the Rescue-G models are the non-Atomic versions (I got them all six).

    The Rescue-G Gulfman and Riseman were probably made in high numbers, as both series were popular at the release.

    I made it into a book this year wearing this Gulfman and a Rescue-G Riseman.

    I've seen it for as low as $95 quite often in the last couple of weeks. The Earth blue ones were around for under $100 too, but they seem to be all gone.
