SCWF fam,

I'm new to Seiko and looking to purchase my first 6105 diver
Does the dial and hands look legit ?
Thanks in advance for any advise.

The dial is a fake. Leave it alone.
The insert is also am.. The hands might be right.

Interesting, the date window looks right on the dial but some things look off:

-The "AUTOMATIC" text font seems off
-Metal around the dial markers seems sloppy, should look more flat/sharp
-Bezel insert and lume pip are wrong
-Sweep hand looks off, seems rounded edges and should be flat

It looks like some effort might have been made to age a fake dial to make it look a bit old?

Amazing eye you guys have. I would not have known I assumed it was a lower quality re-lume.

As a result not sure I'd mind if I paid the right price though.

There's loads wrong with this dial. The pointed A's in Japan, the centre stroke in the E and F in Water Proof, and the Suwa logo is completely pissed. It's awful.

The dial markers are always a dead giveaway.

You've got me worried now Guys. I have 3 of these and haven't had a good look at them for about 10yrs. Good look being as in the close ups like in the first post. More concerned about my dials as I have never touch them . On one I put a replacement Yobokies insert. With replacement hands on another. Hopefully the 3 dials are all kosher. I still have the original parts I replaced. Time to take some close ups I reckon,fingers crossed.

The one thing that stands out to me is the date window metal framing looks correct. All the fake ones that I've seen have a squared off metal frame. Anyone see fake dials like this one?

I always figured that the rectangular markers had sharp corners. However, I think there was some variation, so really, I don’t know.
