    Interesting... the movement is certainly Asian made.

    I am in no way an expert on the brand but I believe that your model should have a Swiss movement in it. Only the much older designs were sold with Asian movements.

    IMHO, the watch is not legit but somebody (Peter or Jeff) will be around to give you more insight shortly.

    Well, I have almost the similar model and mine has the Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement inside. As mentioned by Chip, the movement you have in there looks like an Asian movement. But we could still be wrong since the quality of the video on the caseback wasn't so clear.
    Good luck!

    There are a lot of fakes out there. Can you post a link to the eBay listing? That might help us.

    There is no doubt in my mind about the movement being non ETA. It's an Asian moment, either a Miyota or a copy of it.

    It appears to be a copy of a Classico to me. Unless it's an earlier transitional model with an inferior movement..but I don't recognize it...... Hard to tell from the video,but it certainly raises suspicioun, and if your not 100% sure- why take the chance?

    We're basing it on pretty grainy footage and it's possibly an older model that most of us might not be familiar with, but it just doesn't look right... based more on gut feeling and the movment clearly being an issue. Was it portrayed as a new watch or used? If new, there's no question something is wrong..

    It's in used condition I thought it was quite old. Thanks for all your Help. It's not worth the risk. You have saved me from being scammed.

    Just to add my 2 cents worth but I've seen that watch strap in the video on some fake U-Boat watches. the watch strap in the video looks similar to the strap on a U-Boat flightdeck. The strap with the circular cut outs overlaid on another peice of leather. The one in the video has yellowy-orange circles. To my knowledge U-Boat don't produce straps with this colour but I've seen fakes advertised with the same strap...hope that made some sense.
