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.
