I was glad I purchased this SO&CO New York watch because it IS really an attractive watch. It appears to be solidly made, with excellent finishing on the case and bracelet. The bezel insert on the watch appears to be ceramic, which I doubt, given the watch's low price, but it certainly looks and shines like a ceramic piece. In my honest opinion, as an owner of a Rolex Submariner, I do say that this watch is a well made HOMAGE to the Submariner and possesses a solid feel while on my wrist. The watch is quartz powered so its time keeping ability is excellent. For most people, this would be a fine daily wear.
This watch is awesome! It is such a good looking watch, and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. the time is extremely accurate, the date function is extremely easy to use, and the unidirectional rotatable bezel allows you to easily time things up to an hour. Although I do wish the watch was automatic, I am happy with it being a quartz movement because quartz movements are actually more reliable and accurate than automatic movements... and I don’t need a watch winder! This watch looks great, at 38mm it is the perfect size for my wrist... the bracelet is super high quality. I have a watch with the same kind of bracelet that cost *** and the bracelet on it doesn’t come close to the one on this watch. I personally prefer wearing my watches on straps, but it looks good any way you wear it. It is also a watch with a very versatile aesthetic and design. I do wish the springboard were a bit farther from the case, just because some thicker NATO and Zulu style straps just won’t fit in between... but that is really my only gripe with this watch... and it’s a small one at that because I own 17 different NATO straps, and only 1 of them doesn’t fit this watch... I highly recommend buying this watch, and I will probably purchase another in the near future m!
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.
