Casiovietnam is the safest way to buy G-Shocks.

The best way to tell if a G-Shock is real or not is to look up the Casio model number here (enter the model # in the search box):


Genuine product

G-Shock Section of the Watch Archive

Compare the seller’s photos to the image(s) on the archive page for that model (example).
Most fake G-Shocks don’t even list a real model number for the watch (G-9000-1, DW-6900CS-1, etc…).
All G-Shocks should have the word “Casio” on the face and on the back (might be small though)
Every real Casio G-Shock should come with a box that has the full model number printed on the back (by the bar code). Look for the official Casio G-Shock logo too. And a partial model number will always be engraved on the case back. It’s probably a fake if the watch doesn’t have one, or if it doesn’t match the photos in the watch archive.

Be sure to check the details like the text painted on various surfaces. The knockoffs often have poor quality control. Fakes often use a very cheap LCD that stands out when compared to an authentic model. The real ones also should have a good quality backlight. Once you’ve handled a few real Casio watches and their packaging it becomes much easier to spot the fake ones. You can go to a known good retail store like Macy’s, Target or Sears to see a real one in person.

Don’t be fooled into buying any of these crappy fake G-Shock watches. The real thing is much better.

Be sure to look up more information on any model you are not sure about. You really are only going to be happy with a genuine G-Shock.





The watches in all of these photos are 100% fake. Don’t buy one. They won’t last longer than a month and any exposure to water will probably kill it. Real G-Shocks will last near forever and shrug off all kinds of abuse. And you will look like a loser wearing a fake one. The real ones stand out and look much cooler.
