    Fake or legit Rangeman?

    Hi all
    I have been looking to buy this GW9400 Rangeman, but I am in doubt if it is legit or not
    The seller is not taking the Best pics in the World
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for your reply
    What concerns me is the display for the date, which i have been told should be dimmer than the rest of the watchface and the part where the strap is connected to the case should look like “the top of a castle” and not just straight
    Picture found online to illustrate

    The batch number seems a bit odd. The letter O(?) doesn't correspond with any of the years 9400s are produced. Maybe it's a C or D?

    I did not notice, that the bats number did not match up...
    It also appears on the pictures, that the plastic ring around the light button is black - I believe it is supposed to be grey?
    I think it is a bit shady..

    Yeah, it's most likely a fake. Here's a video of on youtube with a fake that looks very similar to yours, even the batch number is the same. 4:36

    Thanks for the link to the video 👍
    According to the seller, he bought it in Japan, is there any differences between the JDM and the regular one?
    I think the similarities between the watch in question and the fake watch in video is quite striking

    If he bought in Japan, one would expect that he buys a Japanese domestic market (jdm) model. JDM rangeman have a carbon fibre insert on the band which is visible. This watch does not have a carbon fibre insert. It maybe legit, but it probably wasn't bought in Japan and should not have the same (higher) resale value as a JDM rangeman.

    See this link for what a rangeman bought in Japan looks like:

    IMHO keep looking, you can find mint ones for $200 ish. Dont settle for 2nd best/beat ones unless getting it cheap and know 100% its genuine. If in any doubt move on, it looks scruffy from the poor pics. No need to get scruffy/beat up and dirty, it takes a minute to clean up..........does not say much for seller IMO.
