Down Time

As a young widow, I find the Seiko TV spot (with the woman who says "My husband's not around any more but my Seiko is") offensive and insensitive (Outtakes, by Connie Benesch, Dec. 27).

I have been shutting off this commercial and have been meaning to write to Seiko. The Calendar presents a better forum.

My husband's not around anymore--he died. The Seiko he bought me is--but it's the last Seiko product I will ever own.

Those of us who have been through real pain--either death or divorce--have a hard time dealing with flippant comments such as the ones in this Seiko commercial.
