Take a look at this:
I’m a big technical nerd.
But every now and then I like to take a break and listen to a vinyl record or just read a good book (I just read Ready Player One and I highly recommend it!).
But the fact is, technology has crept into every part of our lives.
And it’s become a bit overwhelming, to say the least.
Take a smart watch, for example…
…not only require constant attention (software updates, reload, etc.), but can also be very annoying because they serve as unnecessary notifications, text messages and many other inconveniences.
I’m not saying they’re that bad because they can be excellent trackers, but sometimes it’s just too much…
… … . . .not to mention the fact that they have no style.
However, if you try to reverse the trend of Smartwatch models using traditional watches, the choice can be overwhelming to say the least.
To prove it, I went to a big online store and looked for a men’s wristwatch.
And over 70,000 results have been returned!!!
This is crazy!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to sift 70,000 results to find the one that suits me best and the one I’m going to wear it for (daily life, dress code, etc.)?
and I bet you don’t have much time to figure out your watch.
This is a problem that Watch Gang will solve.
We have now covered numerous subscription services on the site, including Trendy Butler, Harry’s, Dollar Shave Club and others.
But we never looked at the watch subscription…
Well, Watch Gang likes it very much and inevitably had some drawbacks (more on that in a minute).
So let’s take a look around and see who they are, what they offer and, most importantly, let’s take a look at some of the watches we have.
Who’s after the gang?.
Before you buy from a company, it is always important to do some research.
With people who can launch a website within a few hours, you don’t want them to be cheated or misled.
Okay, look at this:
To get a minimum of information about each new start-up, we want to go to Crunchbas, a database that contains all kinds of interesting information about the company.
If this is the Watch Gang, this is what we might find out:
Founded in 2016, they are based in Los Angeles and look like a full-fledged company – contribute!
Apart from the details, if you go to their website – – you can easily see things– just the way we like them:
You can watch this short 30-second explanatory video that perfectly sums up what the Watch Gang has to offer:
For fans ofWatches – we recommend that you also visit their Instagram page.
They share large images of some of the watches they present in their subscription (it’s also a good way to see the quality of the watches they’ve shipped in the past, if you haven’t chosen them yet).
Of course, if you want to know more about the Watch Gang, go to their About page and read a touching story about their origins.
Subscription options available for standby group
Now, the numbers:
Watch Gang offers 3 main subscription models:
- Original– $29 per watch (up to $150)
- Black– $99 per watch (up to $500)
- Platinum– $299 per watch (you can get watches up to $1500)
In principle, the Watch Gang regularly contacts companies and negotiates prices on the basis of serial orders.
For example, if a watch is generally available in retail stores for $500, they can negotiate a price of up to $75 per watch – but then they buy $100.
So, if they turn around and send you a watch, it’s usually a savings account and a modest profit.
If you want to know more about the process, check out their FAQ section, where they explicitly describe how they work:
It’s a smart way to do business and it’s even better for you, because you don’t have to pay the full retail price of your watch (assuming you lose the ability to choose the watch that suits you).
But like most mailboxes, it’s not necessarily revolutionary, but it’s a great way for a person to expand a part of their wardrobe that they might otherwise never have noticed.
Unlocking and observing the gang protector
Okay, enough about the company and the prices…
…let’s do the right thing!
The clock we received.
(Note: this is based on our ownstyle profile, the watch you receive will probably be very different)
First in the package:
It’s pretty clean.
Which is an excellent, especially if you live in a building with a common hall or if your parcels are just outside the door, because no one will suspect what might be inside.
In addition, Watch Gang simply leaves the GT as the sender’s address and informs the courier that delivery must take place on Sunday or public holidays (otherwise a signature is required):
Luckily, your new watch wasn’t stolen by a jealous neighbor.
And now, inside…
…when you open the box, to be honest, there’s a little missing.
Paper packaging :
Behind him is a bubble wrap:
Again, nothing Instagram is better than– so if you’re a man who likes service with white gloves, you might be a little disappointed.
But like Mom always said, is what’s inside….
…let’s take a look at this beauty:
We got a nice watch from Out Of Order (Italian watch manufacturer).
And if you lift the lid, you can see this:
Here, take a look:
I LOVE IT.
Seriously, this is a brand that I wouldn’t normally check on a watch or a color palette that I like to rely on (I’m usually the stainless steel type).
This is a versatile watch that can be worn with casual weekend wear or even a bit in a casual elegant style.
Here’s another look at your wrist:
For people who are receiving their watch for the first time, you should probably take your watch to the jeweller to change the size, because they will have some extra links in the group:
It doesn’t matter – shrinking a watch usually costs between $5 and $10 and can be done in minutes.
And you can see this on the back of the case:
We’d like to tell you more about this watch – but we mustn’t forget that it was made to our taste (where it was) and you’ll get a different watch if you join Watch Gang.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at the specifications of the watch:
- Movement:Miyota (Civilian) Japanese Quartz
- Waterproof:10 ATM (100M / 330 FT) – good for diving.
- Strip:Galvanized steel (gives it a permanent appearance of wear)
- Housing:44 mm
Of course, wristwatch enthusiasts may be looking for a sapphire crystal or some other movement – but for a monthly subscription of $99, we think it’s a pretty good deal…
…which brings us to our next point.
The value of the clock.
Notice how the gang lives by their words?
There was nothing we could do now, , but we had to look.
For a subscription price of $99 and the promise to deliver a watch that costs up to $500, we went around the Out of Order site and found the watch itself.
Here is the list (picture of October 2018):
This represents a total saving of $332.73.
I know what you must think…
…there must be a catch, right?!
…and you’re 100% right!
This is the sticky part of Watch Gang – repatriation policy.
What to do if you don’t like the watch? Bond return policyMonitoring
Now that so much savings have been put in the drawer, there must inevitably be one or two vipers under the grass.
When it comes to Watch Gang, it is important to know that does not come back:.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Nadda. Zero.
So if you’ve never seen yourself in the watch that was sent to you, then that’s bad luck…
…not quite – so:.
Watch Gang has put in place countermeasures to help its customers.
First of all, his group is on Facebook:
With more than 28,000 members (who are also very active) they have created a space where you can buy, sell and exchange watches.
This creates a large (and private) market for like-minded people who want to get their hands on a new watch or perhaps want to get rid of the watch they don’t like.
Well, if you’re the one who left Facebook, or maybe you want to look at other platforms, we really looked at eBay to see what our watches can bring.
Based on the ads already sold, we found the following auctions:
Average profit is $49.
No ads are sold at the subscription price ($99).
It’s a great way to earn extra money for beer per month if you really don’t like the hours you have.
With two big refund options, we think it’s a damn fair alternative, and one that can put a few extra dollars in your pocket at the end of the day.
A+ for this watch band idea!
Going through a watch process
Now, if you’re ready to jump in and try Watch Gang – here’s a short 3.5 minute explanation video that we’ve made to help you answer all your questions:
Recent reflections on the monitoring band
For the value of the watch that comes in the box every month, whichever plan you choose, Watch Gang is the solid choice offor men who are looking for to update their style without having to know all the details behind the watch selection.
Of course, there may be opponents – but you understand all that.
This service is not for watch lovers, but for ordinary people like you and me, who simply don’t have the time to follow the latest trends in Baselworld.
For a fixed monthly fee, we believe Watch Gang offers a fairly soft subscription service that helps men.
If you want to know more about Watch Gang, visit their website and try it out.
We think you’ll be satisfied with the results.
