Hi everyone, I'm a long time follower of WUS but this is my first post.
I have recently discovered the Seiko Pogue and am hoping to add one to my collection. I've scoured the forums to get an idea of the signs of non-originals to look out for, and I think I've found a plain silver dial 6309-6002 with "resist" style caseback that looks more than decent. Hoping I could get some feedback on it's originality?
Note - the seller states that the bracelet has been replaced a "new signed Seiko period bracelet, correct to the watch".
Can I ask an urgent favour folks? I've found what looks like a very nice Pogue and am tempted to buy it. My perfect model is the full blue face, whereas this has the black ring, but it still looks great to me, and appears to be in really great condition. The seller says it's serviced and everything works. I've studied the pictures closely, and can tell that the bracelet isn't original (although it's an acceptable match), but the face, bezel and case look to be in great condition, and I can't tell them apart from original. Does anything look off with it?
Thanks Aggert. The photos aren't good enough quality to tell the A!
It seemed to me that the lume squares are just a bit too perfect for it to be original. Same with the fingers, it just looks a bit too faultless. I'd like it to be right, but these are 40+ year old watches aren't they.
I notice the face on yours is a very nice reflective/metallic finish. This one I'm looking at is flat, and I didn't there was two variants of the black/blue face

So after some research (this guide The Definitive 6139-600x Buyer's Guide | Wrist Sushi - A Japanese Watch Forum) I've learnt how to spot a fake face on a Seiko Pogue, and the example I posted above is definitely fake. The obvious ways to tell are the markings around the subdial, and the missing Suwa logo above the subdial.
It was fairly obvious that the example I was looking at couldn't be an original face due to condition, but it's good to have some definite ways to clearly spot a fake.
