I was given this Movado watch as a christmas gift 3 years ago. I have had the bracelette band break every few months. I was told it wasn’t under warranty for the band. Several jewelry stores have fixed it by replaceing the pins, but it always breaks. I take care not to pull on it, etc but it comes apart at various connecting points. Even sitting on a counter, I have picked it up and it comes apart in my hand. I am so frustrated as I like the watch very much and just wish it would quit breaking. I cannot get anywhere with the company, the store where I purchased it is indifferent. I looked up and saw that others had the same problem, so I wanted to warn others.
