In the above photo on the right, the factory stamped "ALL STAINLESS STEEL" and "WATER RESISTANT" text in huge letterings.The Seiko watch company does not conform to this practice.The replica watch industry exists so long as there is enough demand and believe me, there is enough global demand for knock-off timepieces.Most people who look for replica Swiss watches probably buy them to impress their friends and colleagues.In the multi-million dollar world of fake and replica watches, you are certainly forgiven if you thought that only Swiss marques are targeted by counterfeiters in the Far East.

A Seiko watch always has its brand and movement code on its caseback.

Short of opening the caseback and inspecting its innards, even experienced jewelers and trained watchmakers sometimes have trouble in spotting a fake watch.

It is not the cheap knock-offs that the Swiss watchmakers are worried about – it’s the high grade copies passing off as originals that deceives unwitting consumers who pay almost the same prices as the real ones.

The answer is unfortunately yes, there are replica Seikos being made and sold.

However, the number of fake Seiko watches peddled either on the streets or the Internet are fortunately small.
