    Recommend G Shock vendor other than Amazon?

    After researching many options I finally decided to replace my cracked-bezel DW5600 with a GWM5610. For price and convenience I ordered from Amazon.

    The first watch was in a box marked GWM5610, but in fact was a DW5600. I sent it back for a full refund and placed a new order.

    The next watch was a GWM5610 but appeared to be used, with a couple of scratches on it. It's going back also.

    I'm not sure what is going on with Amazon as I have not had this kind of problem with other orders, but nevertheless I'm looking for another option.

    Any recommendations for a reliable vendor that sells new G Shocks?

    Ebay, Rakuten, Macy's, Arizona Fine Time, Topper, MLTD, Tic TacArea. A few more I can't think of.

    Were they sold by amazon directly and not a third party dealer on amazon?
    I purchased my 5610 from casio's ebay store during one of ebay's coupon promotions.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Casio-G-Sho...frcectupt=true looks like they're out of stock currently though.

    Try here directly from CASIO you might pay more but no middle man to mess with. https://www.casio.com/products/watch...hock/gwm5610-1

    I've had similar experiences with Amazon. A common issue seems to be that returned items are often just placed back on the shelf and sent out again to fill new orders, obviously without proper inspection. I've received obviously used items before. As for receiving a DW5600 in 5610 box, I wouldn't be surprised if someone purchased a new 5610 and returned a 5600 in the box for a refund. Probably an easy scam to pull off.

    Have a horrible reputation, particularly in the Seiko Forums. Not to mention horrible customer service.

    I had an okay experience w/ them.

    Later on I noticed a small fleck underneath the crystal...… but considered myself lucky considering what others have been through.

    I had no idea about all the issues people had, surprised to hear this, but good to know.

    My go-tos are Amazon, Ebay, and Rakuten. Sprinkled with the occasional Macy's, Bloomingdales, and Tourneau. (sales only for them though - at least for me). And yes, I've made a couple purchases each from AZ Fine Time, Topper's, SeiyaJapan, and some others. But that pales in comparison to the Gs I've bought from Ebay, Rakuten, and Amazon. (dozens from Rakuten and the same from Ebay. Slightly fewer from Amazon, but still quite a few.)

    * BTW I've gotten a few expensive Gs from Macys. They were all obviously brand-new, with all plastics, papers, and tags. The latest was the GMW-B5000GD-1 metal square for 25% off. Macys, surprisingly, carries some high-end Gs including some of the newest MTGs and Frogmen. So does Tourneau... (but in a couple purchases from Tourneau, the watches appeared to be new, but all plastic wrappings had been removed.)

    You could get a returned watch from just about anywhere. Might be more likely with amazon due to the high sales volume. I've never had that experience at all, thankfully.
