    FAKE ALERT! GMW-B5000 Gold and Silver versions

    Just want to remind everybody to be on their toes when buying these expensive G-Shock releases, these replicas have been available for a few months now and might be passed off as the real deal.

    Haven't seen or handled one personally so I'm not sure how close it is to the originals, but I'm willing to bet that these have sub standard prints and the Bluetooth feature probably doesn't work. Or maybe the heft is not the same compared to the originals.

    Be sure to ask for videos and high resolution photos if ever you're being offered one at an extremely low price, or better yet, don't even consider it if it's priced way below srp

    EDIT:
    Just realized the most obvious difference, the date rectangle on the upper right is not a dot-matrix display like in the originals, lolz

    Real ones only have 2 letter Day and a dot . date instead of a dash.

    So I've come across this watch. Is this a fake? Because I've come across another posting from another seller, only he shows a tin can and a manual with a different module code. So that one is obvious fake.

    This one is 680 usd

    This one looks good to me, but I've been wrong before.

    I noticed if buying online it's better to ask for a small video showing the lights and the bluetooth function.
    Furthermore the manual and the case back usually shows different module code.
