I saw a thread in WUS that was talking about a guy who bought it from Thailand and they pointed out the hands and the lume parts to look out for. Heng ah I was about to bid but got suspected something wrong when it was offered as used/preown but still had all the stickers on

post this at feiko thread for time begin....

As some of you may already know,theres the sudden stock of luminox quartz dive watches(normally black dial) begin
circulated locally in past year. If its too good,it probably is and with some reason...so take precaution when you buy soft cased luminox from resellers or 'collectors'....

some info; http://information.usnavyseals.com/fake ... -watch.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

and the usual model to fake is this 3050/3950 (as for now)

usual fake setup will be similar to this(for example only to show soft case,card and watch as a set)

Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't
own it, but you can use it. You can't keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.

When I browse threads like this, I'm appreciative of the "old birds" (lao jiaos) and regulars here. Their willingness to give and help newbies and everyone else whenever help is asked for are unparalleled. Generally these are the factors that make a forum popular and successful.
Thank you so much, Seiko Club SG!

Since we are talking about fake SEIKO or some other brands,
Would you guys kindly share your knowledge to identify a fake Seiko? What are the things to look out for?

So can we say if a deal is good from far it usually will turn out to be far from good? Imo best is to handle the watch personally rather than just seeing photos hijacked from the net.

Initially was interested to get Seiko Diver SKX007J or SRP043K2 but the price was fluctuating and heard that SRP043K2 model has been discontinued. Here and there gives different pricing. Pages like ebay or amazon, etc.. are out of the question. Do a little bit of research here and there still catch no balls on how to identify the fake ones.

Anyway, side track a bit. I didn't know SEIKO has a few range in the market like SEIKOs Prospex or Superior until I bought my SEIKO baby tuna and it is under the category of SEIKO Superior. All I ever knew was there are only SEIKO and SEIKO 5. I think I am backdated with SEIKO's development. Questions are, what are the differences between them - comparing SEIKO 5, SEIKO, SEIKO SUPERIOR, Grand SEIKO or SEIKO PROSPEX - High ends and low ends products? And Why Thong Sia never bring them in?
