I received a beautiful watch from my daughters for xmas of 2015. The watch constantly came apart where the bank connected to the face. I have had it fixed numerous times at local watch repair places. Last week my girlfriend Angela Lebron sent the watch to Mahwah NJ for repair and was told the band had to be completely replaced and it would cost $114.02. She did not know I received the watch less than a year ago. My complaint with Seiko is if the serial number is on the watch it should show when it was purchased and should have been repaired under warranty. Please look into this and let me know why my girlfriend would have to pay for a watch band that out of no mistreatment keeps disconnecting from the face. Thank you.
