Hello all,

This is my first post on the website, though I have been following it a long time. I hope I am posting this correctly, and that I am in the right section:

I just purchased a Seiko prospex diver model ssc017. Thought the black and blue match was great and I have been wanting a diving watch for a while. I purchased it from what I believe to be a reputable website (not sure I can mention it) and received watch very very fast, so they were very good with that.

My issues:
Watch does not look like the watch I have seen in EVERY forum and EVERY website.

In the pictures you can see the watch I received has an "X"(prospex logo)" and diver's 200 m under "SEIKO" instead of "SOLAR" and "chronograph" as it is shown everywhere else.

I called SEIKO and said the movement and model number matched, and thst it might be an international version. I have tried the impossible to see if there was another model with the "X" ok it for the ssc017 but haven't found a single one.

Do you guys think this might be a fake/ replica?

I had the exact same watch last year. No prospex logo on the dial as this watch and it's brothers were not positioned as prospex? Could this be an updated version and Seiko put the X there to raise the retail?
