    Fake or just a face job?

    Alright guys, I grabbed a skyhawk off of a friend, but then found out that he got it off of a bay. It looks AND WORKS as it should, but I have 2 concerns:
    1) The caseback is logo’d and numbered but rubbed off to the extent it’s useless to photograph and no numbers are complete enough to reference.
    2) The Face looks correct but I’ve noticed that there’s no color on the battery meter or the “signal meter ?” H-m-l top right.

    Any wisdom from the experts?

    I’m mostly concerned that if it’s not genuine, it might crap out at the most inconvenient time.

    Sure looks legit. Just like my son's Citizen ala your picture.
    BTW Watches have dials. Clocks have faces. Per any watchmaker goin down the pike.

    Information is why I joined! I’ve scoured around a lot here but have mostly been into knives (bladeforums); and just recently started down the expensive path of watches in addition to guns, knives, tools, cars... I need more money.

    I’m not well qualified to pass comment on whether it’s real or not but judging by the state of it the watch would have failed by now if it was delicate in any way so I’d be more than happy to trust that aspect of it.
