Hi I'm after a watch... I have purchased what I think is a seiko orange monster but after pressing buy it now I have noticed the dial has a 12 and a 6 on it so are now questioning if its fake.... How would I know or can someone say what it actually is 

You have probably bought what is known as a "Baby Monster"

Jot, Nick Parr and Rotundus are correct. The one with the 12 and 6 is a Seiko 5 'Baby monster'.  'Baby' is a bit of a misnomer as the case is actually bigger at 46mm than either the 1st Gen OM at 42mm and the 2nd Gen at 43mm. It shares the same movement as the 2nd Gen OM...the reliable, and hacking 4R36 ( the 1st Gen OM used the non hacking 7S26) Other differences include the crown being at 3 rather than at 4 as with the OMs and the WR is a bit less at 100m as opposed to 200m. It also has an exhibition back which the others don't have. Nice watch!
