I doubt it's a fake, it's not worth making them for a tenner. There were many, many different models of Seiko 5 produced and that one looks like it's an older model that has had a hard life. A good service might help it.

i was thinking the same thing, it would be different if it was supposed to be one of the new ones on the watch shop.

Im a sucker for an old watch, when i grow up i hope to own one of these. 8-)

By the time you've worked out the time on that one you may as well have checked your phone. :lol: Nice though... Clockwork Orangy.

If it's not a fake then all it needs to be is functional. The ad says it's warrantied for six months and has been serviced all ready.

The fake thing still concerns me. They have been selling Oris watches for the same money, and they're expensive swiss.

Yes but a new Oris costs a grand, a new Seiko 5 - about 60 quid. It's not worth faking a mass-market item.
