Carbuncles on your wahoo is almost identical to herculiner on ya hootus. The removal is rather painful.

What can be considered a direct replacement to the beloved Seiko SKX007/9 has been released, under the new reference SRPDx.


All 27 variants, featuring "4R36, with 24 jewels, optional manual-winding, a 41-hour power reserve and a hacking second hand."


Gotta say, some look quite nice...if you get past the new '5' logo and 'automatic' writing on the dial.


Enjoy!
Almost identical to one being offered now from the Orient. Wonder how long it will take to slap on a lazy "S" and pass it as legit.

A little more delving into "that" unbranded watch has revealed the following. It is being marketed by a company called OEM & ODM, presumably, they are from the Oriental region. As the looks are similar to the watch posted by m84, a thought occurred.

Have the fakers decided to go somewhat legit and obtain "legal" unbranded watches through OEM and ODM methods. If the answer is yes, then it opens up a whole can of worms. India could well follow suit and copy.

Apologies to m84 for bombing your thread.

If your unsure of what OEM and ODM stands for, the link will help explain it.

Sorry @EDGlimited, i don't understand where you are going with this post. Especially since the photo you posted seems more like a Squale case inspired watch, than an SKX.

SKX007 replacements? I don’t think so👎
100m water resistant
No ISO rating
No screw in Crown
No Bezel Pip
Open back case

It’s just another Cheap Looking Seiko Diver (is it even a Divers Watch?) And none of them will be on my watch list to own.🤔

The pic I was going to post, was almost identical to the watch you have posted, "except" it didn't have, the slanted "S", however I cant remember where on Ebay, I saw it. If Seiko is going to sell these unbranded watches (and they have every right too), then it is as plain as night follows day, that fakers, modders and replica merchants will (wake-up) and exploit that opportunity, jump on the band wagon and use every make, model & part that Seiko has available.

Give it a month or two, you wont be able to tell your SKX from a fake SKX being made by these guy's.

Well, there are already skx ‘homages’ being sold around ebay, for example, by a couple of Chinese companies. Most of which sell homages of other famous seiko models like 6105, MM300, SRP turltles etc.
unfortunately it’s nothing new.

Regarding fakes specifically though, there are also a few running about ebay (once again) that’s should be cause for concern.

A homage watch I can live with, the company that normally makes them, has "some" decorum and honesty, but fakes, yes I agree with you.
