Watch Gang is a watch subscription service that sends a new watch for you to keep each month. Each month they partner with a brand for their watches, and one lucky subscriber will receive a Rolex!

I’m reviewing both the Watch of the Month Club and Watch Gang Black subscription tiers!
Each month features a specific brand for their Watch Gang Black tier – April featured Citizen watches. For the lower price point, you would receive a watch from Rousseau, Eberle, Picard & Cie, Bernoulli, Saxon, Argenti, Stuka, or Firebird.
Watch Gang Black
Citizen Eco-Drive Super Titanium Watch – Retail $325 ($177 on Amazon)
Watch Gang Black featured a sleek, lower profile, Citizen watch.
The watch face and body are simple and efficient. You’ll be able to set the date and day along with the time.
I love that it’s not too big and keeps a low profile.
It comes with a genuine leather band – I’m betting there are some variations to the band and watch face color – but I was very happy with my selection!
Watch of the Month Club
For the lower tier option, you’ll be sent one of a few options – I got the Argenti Typhoeus.
It’s LARGE. The housing of the watch is 1/4 inch thick, which might not sound like much but it really stand out as gigantic.
Again, this strap is also genuine leather. While it’s a nice watch, it definitely not my style – but it was fun to try.
Verdict: This subscription is right up my alley since I always imagine myself wearing watches, and then only wear the watch for a week or two before abandoning it (Apple Watch included). So, I’m totally game to try out different watches and brands – which is the perfect subscriber for this subscription. I really like my Citizen watch – and I also like that you’ll know the brand with Watch Gang Black, it takes a bit of risk out of it, but at a higher price. The lower tier was good value for cost, but also ended up not being my style of watch. Either way – it was a fun subscription for someone like me!
