bracelet wears after 2 months,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNAA30 Stainless Steel Two-Tone Watch (Watch)
Nice watch but bracelet showed signs of wear after 2 months. White spots gradually getting larger. Not what you would expect for the price and from a manufacturer with good record in general.
Called the company to be educated that if you work in "office" and keep your hands on a desk a lot this will happen and that the bracelet is not covered on warranty. Confused I asked what if I worked in construction using sledgehammer would wear on the bracelet be likely less pronounced?
Request for money return met with refusal. The bracelet has been replaced. Initially they requested $80 for the privilege. After some "negotiations" the bracelet replacement was free. Still now I have a $300 watch that looks nice but do I wear it or frame it?
Stay away from this one.

I disagree with your comment. Does the description from Seiko tell you before you spend your money that the band will wear? No. While I am still considering buying this watch, I appreciate that I now know that the band will wear BEFORE I buy it. He obviously did not have that luxury, and I didn't know it before reading his review.

Why buy a watch if you know it's going to show signs of early wear?
I had this happen with a previous Seiko watch as well as a Longines - both great watches, but also a poor reflection on the part of the manufacturers.
These watches are not gold plated...they are 'gold painted'.
Do you research and you may get lucky, but basically you get what you pay for...

All plated ("goldtone," black ion, etc.) jewelry will wear with use (especially with constant contact with a desk). The solution is to buy solid stainless steel or...solid stainless steel. :) (Unless you can afford a solid gold watch, of course.)
