    A Tale of Two Seikos: Seiko SKX175 and a Feiko SKX009

    Pretty obvious to spot, but for the unwary or those new to Seiko watches... the Feiko is always on the left in the photos.. Notice the many differences, double stamping of the case back text, different bezel click mechanism, missing point to the hour hand, arrow seconds head, bezel insert, shape of case back, etc..

    That's a SKX175. The N. American release version of the SKX009.

    The case back is wrong (175 caseback on a 009 case) and the bezel may be aftermarket.
    It is a 175 as tro_jan said. Look at the dial.

    Ok, to be clear - both are legit, right?

    I sure hope so, as I would never be able to tell that the one on the left was fake.

    No the left is fake, look at the underneath photo showing the crown guards, that is the most obvious difference between the two.

    Even the Casio F-91W has been faked. If someone is willing to fake an $11 watch then why not a $200 watch?
