Well I looked at the pics and first impressions were that it was real. However the case back ref number is wrong and doesn’t tally with any of the known Steelfish refs. Also there doesn’t appear to be a serial number under the the model ref. There are more experienced members here but I think it’s suspicious.

:yeahthat
steelfish is normally A17390...
this + the absence of a serial number would lead me to steer away!
cheers,

That is a 17390, it's a trick of the light making the 3 look like a 9.... Zoom in and you'll see the 3 has 2 reflections unlike the 9. Agree the serial number should be more visible but could be polished too much. It happens. The 390 is the xplus 44mm, and the 360 is the 42mm with slightly different bezel font.
