My wife and I purchased this watch as a gift for a young man who was about to turn 14. When he pulled back the paper and looked in the box you would think we had just given him a ten thousand dollar timepiece. The highly polished stainless steal looks great behind the blue dial and face. It comes in an inexpensive but very nice looking gift box with a simple, very limited manual. More detailed information is available on the companies website. (Downloadable PDF books are available for all their products.) The band is very nice, solid and well made but its very large, large enough for a very big wrist or to wear over a wetsuit or snowsuit. If you want to remove a few links I would recommend taking it to a jeweller. For a perfect fit we removed two links from each side. Having the four links removed cost me only *** . Very inexpensive next to the damage I would have done trying to save ***. If you have the tools and the experience to do it yourself, look for the arrows on the links. They point to the hole on the side where the spring is. I've talked to the birthday boy several times since we gave him the watch and he loves it. Its a solid feeling, large and impressive watch next to the basic plastic quartz models out there for the same price. It keeps accurate time and the rotating bezel makes a great timer for day to day activities at school. And he gets plenty of compliments from teachers and friends too. In most cases I would recommend this watch for adults. We gave this one to a very intelligent, goal oriented young man making this SO&CO model a perfect match. Between the quality of workmanship and the fit and finish I would recommend this watch to anyone. Outstanding deal for the price. And no, I did not receive any cash or gifts for my review. I paid full price, no discount. I hope this information will help; Tim
My husband needed an "everyday" watch (he has a beautiful Rolex however he doesn't wear it traveling or on a daily basis) and the quality & craftsmanship on the SO&CO was amazing!! He absolutely loves it!!
