Aaah ok, that explains it. Thank you.

Apart from the appeal of having a JDM model, is there physically a difference (other than it saying Made in Japan)?
Nope.
I've found the quality to be the exact same between J and K models.

Can see the appeal of having a Japanese model bearing in mind they're a Japanese brand.
Especially for such a small price difference. Good Luck with your decision
Agreed, with such a small difference in price, even I would likely get the "J" model. Often you can ask a slight amount more if you decide to flip it later over the "K" model as well.

I think you'll find that they are all made in China based on designs that are for Japan and other markets, which is why places like Creationwatches, Watchhubs etc can source the different models.

A majority of all Seiko watches are made in Japan and Malaysia, though they have production facilities in Singapore and China as well. All of the Prospex, Grand Seiko, and other luxury lines are still produced in Japan.
