I bought Seiko/Lorus watches about 5 years ago. I was quite satisfied with the product.
After 5 years, when the watch strap was worn out, so I wanted to buy replacement. However the strap is no longer produced by Seiko/Lorus and because it is Seiko/Lorus specific band, it is not possible to buy it on the market. After contacting the company directly, they just announced me that the replacement will not be available.
So in fact I have to put in trash nice, fully functional watches, just because of Seiko's extremly poor customer approach. So never buy a Seiko product, if you plan to use it more than 5 years.
