Adidas Originals Black and Colours dial watch

Today's watch is part of a range called 'Originals', but something about it makes me think it isn't really.

The watch is one of the Adidas Originals watches and is a large case dial design. The Originals range by Adidas is a range of clothing and accessories which has the styling of the early Adidas clothing and a look which is like a modern take on the 70s and 80s fashion. The range was released in 2008 and uses the Adidas trefoil logo which was used up until 1997. This logo can be found on the dial and the buckle.

This model is a 3 hand dial watch with a quartz movement. It has a large round black face with red hands, and has multicoloured hour markers around the edge of the dial (green, blue, purple, and yellow). The case is made from a hard black plastic, and has a black rubber strap with Adidas buckle. The box shows that the watch was made by Fossil Inc from the US and was made under license from Adidas.

There are a couple of things which make me a little sceptical as to whether this is a genuine model. First is the back of the watch, which has no makers marks or model number, but just a simple Adidas logo and the statement 'stainless steel back'. The other thing is the strap because the holes for the pin from the buckle haven't been punched through completely. These two things don't definitely say this is a copy or fake, but they just don't feel quite right.
