Thought I would post these here before eBay; anyone interested?

The first pics are of the white version of Ryo's Timex watch and the second is the of the black version. The white one is in very good condition with a new battery, but the black one needs a new battery and the case needs to be cleaned.

For me, the real Shenmue watch is undoubtedly the Timex that the programmers copied - one particular variation of the T43371.
It's definitely not the Ltd Edition because that has the wrong wording, and too much of it, all around the ring (from every picture I've seen except a promo). So there is none of the long black section on the ring that there should be - the extra words fill it up.

Also lets be honest, writing Shenmue on it was kind of cheesy.

But putting the wrong writing on the Ltd edition was a bad mistake which I couldn't overlook.
If I owned the Ltd Ed. I'd still need to get a T43371 for authenticity.

Half of the T43371's that I've seen also have the wrong writing, so that's worth checking out before buying.
I guess the ones with the accurate writing were made earlier, so the Shenmue developers copied this, then Timex updated the watch with extra words and when people went to make the Ltd Ed. they used the update.

So the Ltd Edition became a noticeably less accurate version of the one the developers put in the game.
