12. Internet Purchase Warning
Seiko believes that the best way for you to select and purchase a Seiko watch is at one of our authorized retail stores.

Seiko, therefore, recommends that you do not purchase a Seiko watch through any website, unless it is an authorised Seiko dealer with the same emblem "SEIKO AUTHORISED DEALER SITE" as appears here on this home page.

Some non-authorized sites sell counterfeit or second-hand watches, or watches that have been tampered with, and are, therefore, not eligible for care under the Seiko warranty. Others do not offer the original Seiko International warranty, nor do they offer any after-sales service of any kind.

Seiko takes great care to ensure that our Seiko authorized dealers offer you the very best products and service. Please take advantage of the peace-of-mind that only they can offer to Seiko purchasers.
