Are there no independent watch specialists who'd do it for less? I'd be surprised if Seiko were the only people who could fix it, despite what they might say.
It being an automatic means probably more work if they actually did any true work on the movement (which rarely happens, these days).
Fixed price servicing / repair, seems to be based on, or have some basis on replacement of the movement (since it tends to be more cost effective for them to do that, than actually do any true repairing or servicing - slight exceptions for some of the Kinetic models, where they may replace some of the moving parts to do with, or the generator). And looking at prices from independent "repairers" / servicing shops, they weren't far off the hundred quid mark for the sort of movement that will be in a Monster.
In fairness, the movements are decent and robust, but relatively cheap. Unless you know a good, tame, jeweller who could actually service / repair for a reasonable price, movement replacement or watch replacement ain't going to be miles apart in cost.
