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.
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.
