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!

This is a review of the Watch Gang Original option.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Watch Gang sign-up process has changed a bit – you’ll no longer select your style profile as part of the process. Instead, according to the FAQ, you’ll be able to send in your style preferences through this workflow.

The brands aren’t revealed on the cards anymore. Instead, they just have a bit of a teaser of the style of watch in the card’s imagery.

Lucien Piccard Watch – Value $200 on Amazon

It took a lot of hunting – but I found the watch online! This is the Aquavita line from Lucien Piccard.

It’s a rose gold band with plenty of room for wrist size adjustments.

It’s a stainless steel construction and is waterproof up to 660 feet.

The latch and band are pretty standard – it’s one of the dressier/classier watches I’ve received from Watch Gang so far.

Verdict: As always, the value is definitely there again this month! Style-wise, this one isn’t really something I’d wear around a lot – but it might make sense to have something like this for a more formal occasion – I think I’ll store it away for that time.

  1. Which tier did you subscribe to to get this one? It’s really nice. I am thinking of getting one for my son.

    • This was the Black option

      • Thank you! I was hoping it was the cheaper one hahaha. That’s a good deal though. Thank you!

        • Glad I could help! The watches are randomly delivered – so you’re not guaranteed to get this exact watch, just a watch of similar value.

        • Watch Gang got in touch with us – this was a part of the cheaper, Original price tier!
