Thanks for the guidance above. I ended up buying a Seiko Alpinist at Yodobashi Camera in Umeda, Osaka. Price was much less than on the seiyajapan site. Remember to get the VAT refund if you are a visitor. I found that the big electronics discounters had exactly the same prices. Yodobashi had a better selection than Bic, though.
