It is a very nice Rolex Mariner styled watch. I purchased it because I wanted a 100 meter water resistant stainless steel watch for use at the beach and boating and not have to worry if I lose it or it leaks. This fits the bill, looks nice and has a quality feel and nice heft. The bracelet is solid, not hollow like some other brands at this price. The quartz movement is Miyota, a good Japanese company, but it is their base movement. The stainless case and bracelet are polished nicely, with brushed center links in the bracelet for a nice contrast. The pros are: 100 meter water resistant, accurate quartz movement, screw down crown, large easy to read hands and markers, and all stainless construction. The cons are: The bezel clicks like an old Craftsman wrench when rotated, there is lots of play in the time setting mechanism, the second hand does not always align with the marks on the face and screw down crown feels like there is sand in it right out of the box. But what do you expect for $*? It is what it is, an inexpensive water resistant Rolex styled watch.
I ordered this watch and it came in a black jewelry box with no Seiko markings or literature. There was a tag on the watch but that was it. The box was obviously not designed for the watch and had been taped down to keep it closed. During shipping the tape broke since the watch was too big for the jewelry box and it was partially exposed in the shipping box. I called Overstock and they said that was not the way the product should come and they sent me another watch (good customer service). However this watch came in a bag in a white box with no Seiko retail packaging or documentation as well. I like the watch but don't know if it is new, refurbished or grey market since it did not come in any Seiko retail packaging. Every other Seiko watch I have bought at different sites comes in the retail box from Seiko with Seiko documentation. If they want to sell bulk packaged products they shouldn't charge retail prices. Don't buy this if you want to make sure it is a 100% genuine product or if you are planning to give this as a gift.
