    I'm sorry to say but it's a fake I think. The back plate is nowhere near close to being genuine. Also I cant see a bar above "L M H" to indicate the battery level.

    Looks like a cobbled together copy. Alot of little things just dont add up. Wrong fonts, wording, model number.

    Glad you're getting a refund.

    The back plate is labeled "GW-329"
    Usually a GW is a solar/atomic model.
    No such G-Shock as a GW-329

    Also the pushers are shaped differently than any I have seen.

    It is a fake

    On the dial alot of the wording is wrong. Either out of place or just "made up". Has Receiving indicator but isnt a waveceptor or multiband. Two right hand buttons are mislabeled. No bar indicating battery level, etc.

    The back plate looks cheaply pressed. I dont think there a module 3291, there is no GW329, casio doesnt stamp double rings on the back, and it should say "Made in ####"

    I probably missed a few mistakes but those things tell me it's fake.

    the first thing for me was quality just did not look g worthy / the neg read out seem off, the dial colours / print quality seem not there the overall quality looked very cheap .. not that up on ALL the model codes but my gut was not happy with it
