Actually, it's an Amazon third-party seller, and the watch has no Seiko warranty, but it's a good price.

Glancingly off-topic, but nevertheless essential Seiko reading: Jack Forster waxes poetic on the Seiko 5 and the 7S26 movement, which he pronounces "as brutally efficient and stripped to essentials as a Kalashnikov, and like a Kalashnikov, it is designed to work, as well as possible, with as few parts as possible, as efficiently as possible."

Interesting, but I wonder what would happen if it needed repair? Doesn't seiko disown these grey market watches?

The good news is Seiko movements can be serviced by most US dealers, so you don't need to send to Seiko for movement repair.

Thanks. I've had my eye on a Seiko import model, but the Amazon message about warranties has always worried me.
