    Exclamation Is my citizen watch real or fake? How can i tell?

    How can i tell if my Citizen BL5430-51H is real ?

    I bought it from a friend of a friend new. It came with all warranty information and seems to look the same as all the pictures i see online from amazon in detail.

    Thank you.
    Once i find out if it is real or not, i will write a review.

    Well I wouldn't think theirs much of a counterfeit market on a $300 Citizen, it's even harder to tell without a picture. But I'd think your pretty safe.
    Current watches: Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk Atomic JY0000-53E. Custom built Vintage style watch with 15 Jewel Swiss Rolex/Cortebert 616 movement with custom made dial and re-shaped case.
    Watches now sold or traded: Seiko Marinemaster SBDX001 traded ;-( but know I will buy one again, Seiko Alpinist SARB061, 2 Lum-Tec Combat B-1's, 2 Omega Seamasters, Omega Speedmaster, Anonimo Millemetri, Anonimo Militare, Hamilton Officers Chrono, Citizen Skyhawk, Rolex Day Date, Tudor Prince, Steinhart Ocean One, Seiko Mil Sub Mod, Seiko FFF Mod, Seiko Sumo, Seiko Spring Drive, Sinn Hydro Prototype, Bell & Ross Bomb Squad, BaliHa'i CaliHa'i, Luminox Black Ops and many more over the years I just can't remember.

    As leroy says, at this price point and given the complexity of your watch it is highly unlikely that it would be a fake. Now, where's that review?
