    Casio's supplier is Casio, I think.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I would say they're cheap Chinese watches imitating G-Shocks, and have nothing to do with Casio. They appear to be manufactured by Shishi Xinjia themselves. Cheap fashion jobs methinks.

    I think they did a good job of imitating the case. At least the module is clearly not Casio. Hope these fakers and imitators have the courtesy to keep making obvious fakes so WE don't have to worry so much.

    Yes, some of them don't look bad on the photos, although they look a bit plasticy. They're clearly described as 3 atm water resistant, and their site gives quite a lot of information about them, so I don't think they're trying to fake G-Shocks as such. Just 'borrowing' from their designs. I wonder though, if they'd supply them without the writing on to allow real fakers to put their own on?

    Very close to rip-off fakes. Some of them copy the "G" on the watch, and that's intellectual property theft IMHO.

    One of those is closer to a Timex Ironman which is a strong indicator that these are fake as Casio and Timex are not likely to share the same distributor or supplier.
