Default Seiko: 'Japan' vs. 'Made In Japan'

Can anyone help to clarify the difference between 'Japan' & 'Made In Japan' at the bottom of Seiko dials.

For example, I saw that in Presage lineup SARX models only have 'Japan' whereas the SSA shows 'Made I Japan'.

Are there any differences?

Thanks in advance.

Many times, the only difference is the intended distribution channel.
For example a watch intended for the Japanese market only would have 'Made In Japan' while the same or similar watch intended for sale in North America or Europe for instance would not be allowed to have 'Made In Japan' on it since all but the top of the line Seikos are made outside of Japan.

Default Mvmt Japan

I have a Turtle that has Mvmt Japan on the dial. What does this imply as to country of manufacture and intended distribution?
