Hi gang, just got my 6th generation Nano a few days ago and I was looking around for a watch band. I was torn between the Tiktok and the Lunatik, and finally pulled the trigger on a black Lunatik and ordered in off of EBay.
I saw on a YouTube video, Scott Wilson was in China at the factory that is producing the Lunatiks, and I was very impressed. My question is, being that the item is made in China, do you think the one I ordered is a Chinese knock-off? The one I purchased was like $21.something, free shipping and it was being shipped from China. I believe the msrp is like $70? A chinese knock-off of a product made in China? Just wondering. Let you know how it is when I get it. It does say "OEM" in the description. :)

I was told by the mfg that if it sells below retail it is probably a knockoff. I paid less and was sent a very good but inferior product. The finish is off ...The clasp is not right ... etc.

I guess you get what you pay for. Hopefully mine is real or a really really REALLY good fake!

I complained and got a full refund. The shipper didn't even want the original back ... so if anyone wants a cheap knockoff, let me know.

Yes, but they are 2 different models. One is snap in, the other is encased.

That's pretty sweet. Honest question ... am I that out of touch that 3D printers are readily accessible to folks now????

I was under the impression that 3D printers were still in the dungeons of NASA and Boeing, etc. Can a regular guy get access?

One suggestion though ... you should make a version that leaves the 30-pin connector accessible for either a Nike+ or Bluetooth adapter.

I got my Lunatik yesterday and it looks authentic! From the packaging to the watch band quality itself, everything looks real! I got the black one, and there is not flaws as far as I can see, fitment is perfect, absolutely nothing to complain about. It cost me $21 shipped from dreamworld86. Even if this is a fake, I can't tell! Really light, and fits perfectly. $21?! damn, I love this thing, plus my Nano was the free replacement of the first generation, so I have absolutely no complaints!!!
Can you tell i'm happy?!!! :D

Go to an Apple store and look at the package. It can't be opened w/o removing the seals. If the paint looks orange peeled, it's likely a knock off.

No orange peel or anything! It looks absolutely flawless! Packaging was sealed too.
