Something doesn't sound right here. If the pin in the strap broke, why would you replace the entire watch? Just buy a new strap or bracelet. How long have you owned the watch? Did you buy it new or secondhand?FWIW, I will say that Seiko's straps (whether it's leather or rubber), are generally junk and Seiko's quality is in their movements. I have a titanium Seiko Samauri (SBDA003) that's about a decade old and is still ticking right along keeping great time.
