Seiko 6138 Black Bullhead Question

3187 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Technoman
Hi, all - I have a question for the 6138 experts. I think I'd like to add a black-dialed bullhead to my 6138 collection, and I'm wondering if there are any tell-tale signs that the black dials are replacements - little things like the lack of a beveled window on aftermarket 6309 dials.

I've read Gabe's terrific Bullhead buyers guide, and it points out that no black dials should ever have the Speedtimer designations, but that's about all I could glean.

Most of the Philippine sellers are pretty honest about which watches have replacement dials, but some make claims to originality when the condition seems to good to be true.

Hints, please?
