This warranty covers the case, movement, dial, hands and any metal strap, it does not cover the glass, the battery, straps made of any material other than metal, and scratches caused by normal use. Likewise, damage caused by natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, is not covered. If the watch is marked “WATER RESISTANT” on the back of its case, this warranty covers damage caused by water infiltration. Please refer to the instruction booklet to know the product's level of water resistance or intended use, or check below:
3-bar water resistance: If the words "WATER RESISTANT" appear on the back of the case, the watch has been designed and manufactured to withstand up to 3 bars, such as accidental contact with water, splashing or rain, but it is not suitable for swimming or diving.
5-bar water resistance: If the words “WATER RESISTANT 5 BAR” are written on the back of the case, your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 5 bars and is suitable for swimming, sailing and showering.
10-bar water resistance: If the words "WATER RESISTANT 10 BAR", "WATER RESISTANT 15 BAR" or "WATER RESISTANT 20 BAR" are written on the back of the case, your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 10/15/20 bar and is suitable for bathing and shallow diving, but not for scuba diving. For this type of diving, we recommend using the professional SEIKO diver's watch from the "DIVER'S WATCH" series, "DIVER'S 200M" to "DIVER'S 1000M" diver's watch.
If during the warranty period the item has been tampered with and damaged by anyone other than an official SEIKO agent, this warranty will not apply.
