Glad to have this one back after a long and frustrating experience with Seiko service

OP- I’m thinking about getting a Grand Seiko as my next piece. Servicing is one of the things that I’ve been nervous about as I’ve heard that most GS and higher-end Seiko watches will need to be shipped back to service center in Japan, which could end up taking months. Is that why your experience was frustrating? Anything else?

I’ve had GS serviced and that always goes fine. Other than the time required (and it’s less about shipping back and forth to Japan than it is about their workload) they do a great job.

This one isn’t a GS, and Seiko has not yet figured out you can’t deliver the same service experience on a $5000 watch as a $500 watch.
