Fakers are very motivated.

USD70 watch is also worth faking.

From the SEIKO fonts alone can already see this is a fake.

Thanks for sharing Bro! :mrgreen:

guys, all these while I knew there are Velatura copies, especially this Yatching Timer SPC007 model.

do take note of this model.

the telltale signs are:

- the letter 'O' in SEIKO is rounder. Original Seiko 'O' is more like an oval 'O'

- Original Velatura hour/min hands are broad & masculine, the copies are thinner & the lume portion is pathetic.

- the spacing in-between each letters in 'VELATURA'

- Date wheel colour difference.


Fake (compare the letter 'O' in SEIKO against the original. Compare the hour/min hands against the original)

Original

Here's the fake's link. Maybe the buyer got duped himself unknowingly.
