I have one in the same coloure, a real one, and a Sea Dweller which people allways think is fake because it looks exactly like a Submariner without the bubble on the chrystal for the date. I also have a UK pilots issue Breitling, and about 20 other swiss watches. The king of inexpensive quality swiss watches has to be Zodiac...I have two and love those things!
The date font and magnifier are wrong. And so is the crown guard and bezel color. Not a very good fake. Some are very good, though. It also looks like the GMT hand stack is wrong, but it might be the picture.
