Nice Watch of the Week – SO & CO Monticello Chronograph 5279

Today I want to tell you about this great looking watch – it’s from SO & CO New York – part of the Monticello collection.  While searching for new watches to check out – this one basically stopped me in my tracks and I had to learn more about it – check the picture below and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way.

So – what do you think?  Nice watch – right?  I’ll tell you what stands out to me – the contrast between the dark face and white numbers – with clean subdials.  The touches of orange in the subdials and hands, the overall clean design of the case all look very good.  But the absolute best thing about this watch – that creates the whole look of the watch – the perforated leather band.  That really sets this off as a motorsports type watch as they describe.  I’ve been searching for a perforated leather band for one of my other watches – with not a lot of success – and this one looks amazing.

Now – the next best part of this watch – the price.  It’s listed on Amazon – right now – for $49.  Go get it by clicking here – or on the pictures above.  This is a really nice watch for $49 – I mentioned looking for a perforated leather band for one of my other watches – those were close to $49 – and didn’t come with a watch.

Here’s some specifics on the watch:
