    vintage seiko 5 6119-7173 fake or real?

    Hi All,

    I originally posted this in the vintage Seiko forum.

    I'm looking at buying this from an ebay seller that is U.S.A. based. Everything looks good to me, but the case back has no identifying number. I've talked the seller down from $450 to $350. I've seen higher and lower. The ones like this that come from the U.S. are usually higher. Please help me with this one as I don't want to buy a fake 6119-7173.

    Thanks in advance!
    Chris

    What do you mean there is no identifying number on the back? You mean a serial number? It's right there above "JAPAN U". Just a bit polished.

    You are absolutely correct! My eyes aren't what they used to be. Thank you for pointing that out to me. Meanwhile I got the seller to come down to $325!!
    Thanks so much!
