    Well, although I think it is unlikely someone would fake a Seiko 5, I'm sure it's been done. These look original and good. They are also, at 25 quid, at the maximum of what they are worth, IMO. They will probably need a service, so I always keep that in mind. I like the look of them, though. Seiko had some nice case and dial designs.
