Dear members

I like to get your advice if this piece is a real deal. Got an offer from a friend.

He told me that the crystal has been replaced. The rest are original. The number at the caseback is 832324. And it read 6306-7001.

Please give me your honest opinion if this is a real deal as I really do not know how to spot if its a fake.

Thanks

I'm no expert on the 6306 or the scubapro variant, but nothing jumps out as being wrong to me. Can you get a shot of the caseback and movement (which should have 6306 stamped on it). If you can't open the caseback then check that the movement hacks. There was a scubapro 6306 sold on eBay this week in parts. If you search completed listings you might be able to compare the dial for authenticity.

Here is my 6306-7001 found nearby in a store in Japan. Serial # starts 89xxx
Your dial lume spots look like mine so I think the watch is legit...

Looks good to me. Correct dial code at bottom, correct bevel at the date window (day wheel should be kanji/english), correct text font and colour and the case seems to have the large cut out for the crown. Here's a pic of mine, although I know that some people here have much better examples ;)

It does look superb and if the experts say it's original then thats good enough for me, but.......................even if i had the money spare i wouldent pay the $$$ amount that these command, just doesent do it for me, just so many other models that i would prefer to spend the $s on :)
