I know that vintage Orient used Seiko movement but unfortunately I don't have the Seiko 7625 to make the comparison.

Do it when the price is still affordable. Just recommend to go for the King Diver with 1942 movement and classic look more than KD which came later if you prefer more 70s design.

Japanese uses Kanji, which are Chinese characters. You might be used to just seeing the first character for the day, which is like when we have "Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun" in English on watches. These just have the name of the same written out in full, so like "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday" - the second two characters are the same for every day, like us having "day" at the end of the name of every day in English (although actually only the last character of the 3 means "day", the second character that's used every day means "dawn" or "morning", but it applies to the name of the whole day, not just the dawn or morning of that day).
