Not sure if any you have bought or looked at any of the G-Shocks from ebay seller "bbtiesto", but I have bought 2 from him. What I have noticed is that his watches are in much, much better condition then the photos show. The last one I bought from him was my Gaussman and in the photo it looked to be in good condtion but faded or maybe some residue all over the watch. When I recieve a used watch, my normal routine is to clean it with some very mild soap and water and a soft toothbrush. After I cleaned this Gaussman, man what a pleasent surprise... it was in mint condition, it was just dirty. Anyways, just wanted to share my experience with this buyer. I also bought a 5700 from him with the same results.
