Is it just me or does the above Seahorse look too 'mint' (plus I'm no expert but I've never seen that style caseback before)?

I could be wrong ( I often am my wife tells me !!) but i saw the same seller selling a 6217-7000 last year i think in NOS condition and to me the back which was like new did not look original as though it had perhaps been produced by a CNC or such like but then again i could be 1000% wrong.

My apologies, I didn't RTFM ::) Thanks for adding the pictures so people know what I'm talking about.

Looks nice but it is almost guaranteed a brand new fake. The case back is bogus; no serial number; Seiko never put unbreakable mainspring on it's watches and, as you noticed, the style is all wrong.
On the front side, the chapter ring is not typical of the ones seen on vintage Seikos; they normally have the major markers much thicker than the minor ones.

Steer clear unless you just like the look of the watch...but don't expect it to be original, vintage and a Seiko.
