Seiko vs. Citizen watches

In a very general way, are Seiko and Citizen watches considered to have about the same quality, i.e., fit and finish, accuracy, reliability, bang for the buck, etc.? I have owned many different Seiko watches and have been very happy with them all, and recently I purchased a Citizen eco-drive diver, only because I liked the textured dial and the price was right. I could just as easily bought another Seiko if I had found one designed like the Citizen. So what do owners of both think - are they pretty much the same? (I know that there are individual Seiko models that are superior to certain Citizens and the reverse is probably also true, so I am looking for general opinions from those who have experience of both.) Thanks!

I think Citizen's Eco-drive is usually cheaper then Seiko's Kinetic but slightly more expensive then Seiko's Quartz. A good choice if you do not want to replace the battery and do not want to pay for a Kinetic.
