Not surprised, Swiss Army is also faked. To me what make this even more insidious, I would suspect, A higher percentage of people who buy counterfeit “affordable” watches think they are buying the real thing.

I'd heard that there were counterfeit Casio's on Ebay for a while. I don't know if it's still a problem.

Interestingly, I saw one of these fake Gees a couple of years ago, and emailed the 'bay to let them know. They sent me a form response, and I'm sure they didn't do a damned thing.

I see conterfeit Casios at a flea market near me every time I visit it during the summer months. The booth sells them for $5; they're so cheap and so fake.

If you think only the expensive stuff gets faked, think again.
