One thing that hasn't been mentioned, is warranty.
Seiko, being a personal import, will carry only a standard 1 yr international warranty.
Citizen, being an official import, will carry a 5 yr warranty, with an additional year when you register it on the US website.
Whether you keep the watch for 6 years or more, is academical – the warranty (may) remains with the watch, in which case it's transferable, so long as the original receipt is given with it.

All things considered – Citizen standing over this watch for that period of time suggests they've conducted sufficient testing to be confident they won't be getting a flood of them back for repair.
Surprisingly, and disappointingly, Seiko don't – and whilst their returns record is fairly low irrespective of price point, it'd be nice to see them show a bit more commitment on that aspect.
