Amazon shippping Japanese version,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SRP307 Classic Automatic Dive Watch (Watch)
I previously owned the first generation Black Monster and just picked this new one up to replace it. Very happy with the new movement and features. The markers don't look as "plastic" as the first generation, making the watch look a bit more upscale.
The seller of my watch was Amazon and I received a watch with the Japanese made movement -- NOT the Malaysian one. I almost spent more money trying to order direct from Japan for this reason, but it was a VERY welcome surprise that this was a Japanese movement watch.
UPDATE: Watch is running great and very accurate at +5 seconds / day

Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered this watch for a few bucks extra directly from Amazon, rather than the 3rd-party seller they have featured on the main page. Hopefully I get a Japanese version too (but if I don't, ah well, it's not the end of the world).

You sure you received the made in Japan one? People seem to think the dial that says mov't Japan is a "J" model, which it's not. The "J" one will say made in Japan on the bottom of the dial NOT mov't Japan which is what is pictured on the dial.
Unless your Seiko has made in Japan at the bottom of the dial it's not a "J" model.
