POPSUGAR Holiday 2016 Limited Edition Men’s Box Spoiler!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


We have the first spoiler for the POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Men’s Winter box!

The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Men’s Winter box

The Cost: $100

The Products: For Him: Everyone needs a set of timeless essentials to give or get as gifts. This array of rugged yet style-worthy goods is ready to keep your guy well-equipped for the holidays and the days after.

And each box will include:


Cortese Watches Prologo C12801 – €149 (This watch is European and sold in euros)

(Currently, this is the equivalent of about $160.)


As is custom with POPSUGAR Limited Edition boxes, this item is boxed and ready to gift!


(POPSUGAR sent me this spoiler item early so I can answer any questions you have about it.)


The distressed leather on this timepiece gives it the look of a family heirloom, but its modern blue hue and domed glass face transport it to the present. The long strap is designed to be tucked into the first or second buckle.


The length of the watch is about 10 inches.

You can also adjust the back of the band to change where the watch face is located:


We found that the leather distresses easily, so with time, this band will have more of a lighter leather look.


The domed glass face has impressive dimension to it, too.

What do you think of this spoiler? My husband, Eric, really likes this watch! He’s not an overly formal guy, so the distressed leather band was the right addition for him.

UPDATE: Here is the watch on me:


My wrist is on the small side, so there’s extra band length, but I could easily bend it back under the buckle:


And here it is on Eric:


Hope that helps!

Are you going to grab a Holiday box?

  1. No more spoilers yet?? Really wanna buy this for my bf but don’t think I can justify it without another spoiler. It’s a nice watch but he already has enough watches so it depends what else is in it!!

  2. Anyone know when the last day to order this is? I want that watch so badly for my dad for Christmas but don’t get paid again til the 7th of December 🙁

  3. I just got tracking info for this box!! Isnt it a little early for it to be shipping already?

    • Did you receive the box yet??

      • no, I just checked the tracking # and it hasn’t moved any since they made the label. It shows expected ship date of todays date so we’ll see.

      • Both of my LE boxes are set to deliver on Saturday!!

  4. Do these boxes typically sell out fast??

    Thinking about getting this box for my boyfriend for christmas. I like this watch a lot. but I just bought him a watch for valentines day (although this one is more casual but i think he would love it when the other one is too nice for his outfit) so i want to see more spoilers to make sure its a good fit for him! i think he only wouldve liked about half of last years box, so im on the fence.

  5. Hi Liz!
    How many millimeters is the diameter of the face of the watch? Looking to get this as a gift to someone who is very specific in their tastes. ?

  6. L O V E!!!!
    My husband said to NOT tell him the spoiler, but I love this watch. I hope he does, too. We don’t wear watches much, but this would look good on him.

    We already ordered both boxes when they first came out. I cannot wait to receive these…

  7. I’m gonna love this watch on me! ?

  8. So glad I ordered this already! My husband loves watches. I couldn’t help it, I showed him the spoiler and he loved it! He even knew the brand already (which was a new brand for me). Needless to say this box will be a winner regardless of what else they include!

  9. Totally went for this. The colors will look beautiful on my husband and we were looking for a handsome, fashionable, casual watch. Done deal.

  10. My husband loves watches and the color blue so this was a no-brainer. He loves the green-faced Bespoke Post watch I got him last year.

    I’m still hoping for one more good spoiler from the Women’s box before I get that one. Still unhappy about last year…

  11. I wanted to buy my boyfriend a watch for Christmas so this box is perfect! Any extras are going to be great. So my question is do I wrap the whole box and give it to him, or separate each piece so it looks like I bought more? lol What is your plan for gifting?

    • I always turn this box into a MEAN socking 🙂

    • Give it to him just the way it was delivered. This way, he gets to experience the unboxing. He’s going to love anything you give him…be ready for lots of kisses! ?❤️?

  12. Got two boxes. Color of my wedding is in blues, my son will give this to his new Step Father and keep a matching one for himself. They will both love the distressed band. 24 yrs. old and 51 years old. Super cute he wanted to do this for his new dad!

    • Oh…I love this. Best wishes to all of you. You apparently have raised a fine young man..congrats!!

    • Love it. Agreed great guys raised and chosen.

  13. ummm is it bad I kind of want this for myself?

    • Same here. Based on Liz’s picture, it’s going to fit super large on me though…

    • I was thinking the same thing! I want the watch for myself! My BF doesn’t wear a watch. I love the blue face and distressed band. Last year I bought the PS Box for Her and hated it. The men’s box was much better. I may get the men’s for myself this year.

  14. That watch is gorgeous! I love the blue face. I suspect it’s not the bf’s taste, though. He strongly dislikes the distressed look … except sometimes he likes it in leather. … But I don’t think he needs another watch… Hm. Decisions decisions.

  15. EEE! I just ordered this box for my BF. I really wasn’t impressed with last years LE Holiday box, but this watch looked perfect. Don’t let me down, PS!!!

  16. Super cute, but I’m kinda having buyer’s remorse. The hubby doesn’t wear watches, and I have no idea who I could give that to. Plus, I’m not a fan of the distresses leather. I may have to do my first swap with this. Lol

  17. I said I just needed a spoiler and I would,order. I saw the spoiler and ordered in less than a minute.
    Now…I have do,tdecide who gets the watch. My son who loves that color blue but doesn’t wear watches…but maybe should since he is getting older and could stand to dress more maturely. OR my son who likes watches but doesn’t like blue… OR my husband who has an extensive watch collection so obviously loves watches but doesn’t need any more…

  18. I’m considering buying this for my husband. I know he was looking for a watch. He is extremely picky though. Do you all think this would go with a suit ok? He generally wear black, charcoal, or a lighter grey. Would it be too casual?

    • I think this would be a little casual, but just my opinion. ☺️

    • I think it would be fine. I see people wear sports watches with suits.

    • I think it would look great with a suit. A little personal touch on something formal.

    • Yes, too casual as a businessman watch… but it’ll be great for his off days.. it’s really pretty.

  19. I LOVE this spoiler! It’s just a matter of whether this should go to beau, brother, or boss.

    I personally think my boyfriend would look great with this and I was shopping between a watch and a wallet for him. Although seeing a wallet in this box won’t be a surprise to me either.

    • I agree, I think it’s a bit casual, BUT it is gorgeous.

  20. I’m so happy that my husband doesn’t need a watch. Last year I ordered both LE boxes, but it looks like I can skip this one. I’d love to say I’m saving $100, but I already spent it on Happy Rebel lol.

  21. This is perfect! I already know who gets this for Christmas 🙂

  22. Cracked…I figure between all the male members of the family I can extract a bunch of XMas gifts. And that watch! I kinda wonder if it would fit ME!

    • Just added a picture of the watch on both me and Eric. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Thanks!!! I was wondering if a woman could wear this! That’s another dent in the old bank account!

      • Liz…you have stepped up your game even more with your pictures! THANK YOU for taking the extra time to do them, we can really see what the items look like up close! Muwah!!!!

  23. And my guy loves watches and that shade of vibrant ocean blue is his favorite color. You win, Popsugar. I’ve now bought both the for her and him LEs.

  24. This watch looks awesome but it would be good to see it worn – for scale. Would you be able to show it on yours or your husband’s wrist?

    • Just added a picture of the watch on both me and Eric. 🙂

  25. So glad I ordered this for my husband. He’s in Iraq at the moment and he just told me last week he broke his watch. So glad the band is distressed, he’ll love it. Fingers crossed he’s home in time for the Holidays!!!

    • I so hope he makes it home for the holidays!!!

    • I pray you will get to spend the holiday together but even more I pray you are reunited safely whenever that is. God bless you and thank you both for your service to our country.

  26. I love the watch for myself!! But the last watch I got in a PS box, it didn’t even work, battery was dead as soon as I took it out of the box.

    • Jewelry shops will replace the battery for like $5 🙂 (but it definitely shouldn’t have been dead when you got it)

    • Watches often come with a removable plastic strip between the edge of the watch face and the winding mechanism so the battery doesn’t run down in shipping/storage. I think that is what may have happened with your watch so if you still have it, you could check that. 🙂

  27. Wowowowowow.

  28. I have never bought one of the men’s boxes before but I could use it as gifts for my boyfriend and possibly my dad… right? (Like I need another box)

  29. I am so happy about this spoiler! Last year, I bought the men’s box and split the contents between my dad, brother, and boyfriend based on their style. My boyfriend will LOVE this watch!!

  30. Omg. Last year, my husband got a new job and needed a work bag and that was the spoiler. This year, he hinted to needing a new watch. Popsugar is reading my mind. I love this spoiler!

  31. Liz – would you consider posting a photo of it on? I am trying to get a sense of scale. Also, could a woman wear this? It doesn’t scream “”man” to me & I quite like it!

    • Agree I would love to see a pic of it on both Liz and Eric bc I kind of want it for me!

      • We’re on it! 🙂 Pic coming soon!

    • Just added a picture of the watch on both me and Eric. Hope that helps! 🙂

  32. Nice, but my husband already has an Apple watch.

  33. Hmm, I was going to buy this box for my husband and brother, but my husband does not wear watches and my brother wears an apple watch. I guess I’ll have to pass unfortunately.

  34. omg this looks amazing! my boyfriend loooooves watches. I may have to get this for him

  35. I would love if they add a woman’s version of this watch to the women’s holiday box, lol. I could use a watch, and this looks very sleek and stylish.
