Default JDM SpeedTimer 6139-6000 on the 'bay

Spotted this one today - item 264249714137 (as I gather direct linking is frowned upon). It's a JDM Speed Timer yellow 6139, but the serial number made me think...

The same seller had a watch earlier this week, now ended, up for sale as item 264237521445. Oh looky...

Linking to a fake auction/watch is never a problem and is appreciated by many.

What’s the story then? Maybe just posted the wrong case back pic in one of the ads? They’re the same exact case backs, unless I’m not following.

Thanks for the heads up on the fake. I find myself too skeptical to buy a vintage watch on Ebay because of the over abundance of fakes.
