Bought this watch right before I went on vacation, it's water proof. I tested it in the ocean in the Bahamas, as well as the hot tub and pool. I have not had any trouble with it at all. It's also a great looking watch, someone asked me if it was a Rolex, that says something. You will be happy with this watch purchase. They would make a great gift as well.
I purchased this SO&CO New York "Yacht Club" "chronograph" a little over a year ago and was pleasantly surprised by the quality -- especially considering its low price. The watch I received resembled the watch pictured on the sales page; the bezel and its insert were blue and very glossy, like ceramic; but at this price know it wasn't. For a watch at this price level, I was pleased by the fit and finish of both the case and the bracelet -- which were smooth and finished well. The 100m water resistance is warranted because I've had this watch in the pool several times without any problems -- the screw down crown and case back work quite well. The only draw back concerns the chronograph function: the red chronograph seconds hand does move and reset as it should, but there's no attendant accumulative subdial keeping track of the elapsed time; but then, for the price, perhaps this was too much to ask. I purchased this out of curiousity and because it resembled Rolex's famed Yacht Master II watch -- of which I have in my collection. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this SO&CO watch -- so much so I've purchased several others and have been satisfied with each of them; AND, the accompanying watch box they're in is of decent quality. One can't go wrong with this watch.
Received this watch today, packaging is very impressive and gift suitable. Purchased this watch for the brand (I have several SO&CO watches) at a very good liquidation price. Satisfied but with a few caveats. First, the dial color is a darker blue than pictured. Second, there was movement in the minutes hand when I depressed the stem to set the time, not common on higher quality watches, third, the bracelet band seems to be of high quality and heavy, but it lacks the ability to make fine adjustments after removing links. Most bracelets allow you to move a spring bar in the latch to either get it a little tighter or more loose, but this one does not. Not a big deal for me since I plan to replace it with either a mesh band or leather to make the assembly lighter and more comfortable. Still, OK value considering the overstock price.
