How to Spot a CASIO Watch Fake – Don’t Get Ripped Off!casiocentre
CASIO Computer Company was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1946 and for over 60 years has produced the highest quality electronic products in the industry. Known for products such as calculators, PDAs, cameras, and audio equipment, but for many consumers, its best-known products on the market are the extremely popular CASIO watches.
With popularity comes knockoff, and today’s market is flooded with notable knockoffs and counterfeits.
When shopping for CASIO watches online, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Try the CASIO website first – see what they offer directly from the company and this can help you narrow down your extra searches.
Buy only from reputable online stores; look for the warranty information on the store site.
If you buy from an online auction site, make sure the seller has positive comments and feedback on the products they sell; While there are no guarantees of a seller’s business conduct, it is a good way to assess the overall quality of their products and services.
No matter what type of site it is, the seller must have pictures of their CASIO watches; Please compare those pictures with those on the CASIO watch official website.
All CASIO watches come with CASIO printed on the front and back, usually in small letters. Also, the total or partial model number of the watch. * Sometimes multiple similar watches will use the same back and only the first part of the shared general model number will print; The images provided by the sellers should reflect that.
When shopping in public, you should always go to an established jeweler or a major department store. But, let’s say you’re going to stop by a watch dealer’s kiosk at your local mall or open-air market; there are a few things to look for when browsing:
As with online shopping, be sure to inspect the watch and its case for official markings.
* Make sure CASIO is on the face and back of the watch, as well as the full or partial model number of the watch.
* Make sure the model number matches the official CASIO watch model numbers; This may require a bit of planning and prior research on your part, but it is worth not buying a fake CASIO.
* Look on the back of the watch case – next to the barcode there should be a model number that matches the watch model. – Beware of a watch that is in the wrong box or has no box at all.
* A fake CASIO will also show signs of poor workmanship. – Closely inspect the watch for rough edges, discoloration, scrolling, or strange-looking text on the watch face, as well as the quality of the strap and clasp. You should also test the brightness of the dial, as many fake CASIO watches will have a noticeably dimmer dial than a real CASIO watch.
