Seiko 5 CAL7009A FAKE?

#1 Post by quasimodo22 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 2:35 pm

Hi everyone, I'm new and I have a question for you. I've just bought this seiko on ebay and I am worried it may be a fake. I'd like to have your feedback, if you please :D .

Looks highly suspect to me. The dial doesn't look right at all, and the movement looks a little dodgier than I would expect (though I'm really out of my depth with that comment). But somebody who really knows will be along at some point.
Real men wear small watches.

Thanks a lot for the answers. I was in doubt because of the SEIKO font, basically, and also the text of "Automatic". Also, I didn't manage to find a similar watch on the whole Internet...

Looks 100% fake to me. Looks cheaply made and the vintage Seiko watches I have from the 60s and 70s are all high quality.
Curious, is this from the seller on eBay from India who has tons of “vintage” watches?
