Default Difference between Seiko K and J Series

I'm curious as to the difference between Seiko K and J series. I notice that the price of the J model tends to be more costly than the K model. What can possibly lead to price gap? Also, is there any difference between SBDY021 and SRPC91J1 as they are made in Japan? The former name is used in Japan and the latter name is used outside of Japan. Also, is there any popularity difference for Seiko collector between the J and K model?

Hi, yes the J variants were produced in Japan, but i can tell you that there will be close to no difference. The Text on the Dial ist differnt. J or K doesnt say anything about what case quality you might get or not. (assumed by many i talk with) > I had both J and K watches... first the K variant hadn't had sharp case finishing and my first J did had that in fact... after a year i went for another J&K Variant but this time the J Case was not finished as good as the K Case.


I hope i could help you.

Hasn't this been debunked time and time again? That the J version doesn't necessarily mean made in Japan but must comply with "origin" legislation in certain countries?

Seiko robots in Seiko owned factories make Seiko parts, then assembled in Seiko factories. Seiko is a member of the JCWA - whose rules they adhere to and this is their policy "The Japanese law defines
country of origin
as the country where substantive change was performed. For watches, the substantive changes are defined as
movement assembly
.

The percentage of local material is not specified. This means the country of origin is the country where the movement was assembled. Therefore a watch with a movement assembled in Japan can be 'Made in Japan' in the viewpoint of the law.

However, to avoid misleading consumers, member companies of the JCWA use the phrase 'Made in Japan' only when
movement assembly and complete watch assembly
were performed in Japan."

Welcome to the forum, take a look at this video and the whole series of "watch and learn" done by Mark.
