Scam Casio G-Shock

Recommended Posts

rdp5

OK, imma newb in general and new here.  However, in November 2017, I bought a Casio G-Shock from a rep website G-ShockFactory.Com || The King of Reproduction G-Shock Watches.  Their actual website is: https://www.g-shockfactory.shop/ .  I know the gens are not the most expensive watches and certainly the reps are not either, but I bought it as a gift for someone who didn't want something over $20 because it was going to be used somewhere that the watch was going to take a real beating every day.

After the sale, I got an email receipt with am order number, a PP confirmation code, and a proposed shipping date.  A week later, I got another email with a shipping and tracking number.  The tracking number was invalid.  After a week, the tracking was still not updated and still invalid.  after another week, I emailed the seller, got a confirmation email, but no response.  After another few days I sent another email to the seller, same thing.  After a couple of more days I disputed through PP.

Once PP got involved, I noticed PP had a different email address for the seller.  Hmmm.  To their credit, after PP got involved, I was contacted by the seller and was completely refunded in one day.  After that, I just went to a local retailer and bought a decent new Casio sport watch because it was a gift and the receiver was pleased.

Interestingly, a couple of days later, I got an email from the seller that I would get a tracking number in a couple of days.  I was hoping that they would actually ship what I ordered and if so I would gladly pay for it.  Well, it's been long enough and guess what - nothing from the seller.

I learned my lesson, and thereafter joined this site.  I'm not looking for miracles or perfection, but was hoping to get something from the G-Shock Factory.  Ha!

I hope someone reads this and doesn't make that mistake ordering anything from them.  Pass it on.

Thanks for posting. Yeah - it's not just $5,000 watches being rep'd. Everything in between. Looked at the site - and it's a slick looking site - and if I hadn't found a forum like this and started learning - that's the kind of place I would have been drooling over. At least they take PP so is relatively simple to get your money back in a situation like you had.

Honestly at those prices I'd have considered giving one or two a try... perfect for the Ali Express thread...I'm sure they would be gloriously crappy...

TBH

 

G Shock reps you dont buy from websites

 

you buy with a shovel and scoop them into very large plastic bags.

 

 

I sometimes do and use them as gimmees to the orphanage kids

Get them from the gate,  at least you will get something.  This is my $13 Casio rep - not a gshock but great for the money and actually useful, I got 50 phone numbers on this :)

Yes they are quite a nostalgic retro (usurped by modern phones for functionality though)

 

But

 

Comically lightweight

and usually short in strap length

Yeah, I had one like that in black back in the 70s or 80s.  Wore it everywhere and every day for years without a hitch.  It was a great watch for about $10-15.  Looked something like this.

These were super popular back then with people I knew as it was an on your wrist stopwatch and calculator, and thus a boon for combat pistol competition timekeeping / score equating

Casio does make some rather expensive G-Shocks; well over $1000 MSRP

While some case parts are made by a Japanese master craftsman, which is admittedly cool, I don't think that justifies the $5,000+ price tag they put on them.
