Would you buy one of these "FrankenSeikos" from India? 馃嚠馃嚦

I've heard they're made of real parts just mixed up and refurbished with "local market straps?"

I don't want to support fakes but real parts remixed seems okay. And the look is incredible for $40USD

Most of those dials are fake, hands and cases as well. Questionable movements and maybe sometimes original caseback.

So no, I wouldn't buy one. It's just a low quality fake.

Ah dang, thanks for the heads up.

Can't see how you can get genuine parts in a $40 fake.

I thought maybe they were from batches of old, broken authentic stock the seller bought in bulk and cannibalized for working parts. *shrugs*

I have purchased a few. They're ok for what they are and I enjoy them. I have always purchased ones with what appear to be proper dials with appropriate hands and not the printed or painted type.

I guess for peanuts relatively, if you like a design, why not?

Hope it goes well if you do. 馃憤

Long as you know what you are buying I can't see a problem.

Honestly I would.. might not wear it but i would buy it for the memory. So 10 years from now i look at it and remember the day i saw this fake red dial when i was in india

Bought one years ago.

Utter shite.

It'll last all day , if you are lucky!! 馃ぃ

I would rather french kiss a skunk than buy one of these
