I have had the watch for less than 6 months and I've already had to call Michael Kors repairs dept. The Mechanism is fine, but the band has discoloration the on the bottm links. I do not use the watch on a daily basis, and am not left handed. The repairs dept. staff is very nice, but yet I still have to spend more money to send it in. Not very pleased with the quality! This watch is not inexpensive, so I expected better quality.
