Hello,

I'm interested in purchasing a Seiko 5 military watch. I noticed that the same models seem to have various model numbers. Specifically,

Seiko 5 SNK809K3 ($109)
http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-Watches...=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B001HKK9YE

and

Seiko 5 SNK809K2 ($79.95)
http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-Nylon-S...r_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=watches&qid=1229619922&sr=1-2

So my question is, what does the "K" at the end of the model represent? It appears to be the exact same watch but there is a price difference. Does anyone know what the difference is?

Thanks in advance,
Devin

The K means that it is intended for sale in the international, market (J would indicate that it is intended for sale in Japan). If there is any number that follows that, it typically denotes your choice of straps or bracelets available. The pictures shown in those two watches are the same. the difference in bracelet/strap code might be a typo. Also the different prices might be attributable to different sellers.

This flieger is a solid watch, but keep in mind that they measure 37mm in diameter, which some might find a bit small to their liking.

Thanks, Isthmus. I'll keep in mind the 37mm. I currently have a Oceanus OCW-600, so I', sure the 5 will feel really small -- but it certainly is an attractive watch.

I was thinking about purchasing the Seiko 5 military on Amazon -- has anyone on here done that? Any recommended sellers?
