    Bezel pearl and triangle white base looks very suspicious. Some shabby finishing. I would too say its fake.

    Key point being speculation.
    In this case not true so I guess that means it's worth nothing.

    I have a genuine WAY201A and the word “AUTOMATIC” looks more crisp on mine than this one. Maybe it’s just the quality of the picture though.

    Being such an expert, let me state for the record the above statement is largely mis-information. But it is correct that examining the movement often is the easiest way to discover fakes.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    The hour indicators are too short. If you look closely for example at the hour 5 indicator it doesn’t reach the valley of the face watch, as the original does.

    Excellent observation. I too now see that the indicator (e.g. at 5 o'clock) on the original seems longer (I can count 4 "lines" that the marker reaches). The same indicator on the "fake" one is shorted (only reaches 3 "lines" on the watch face).
