December  2017 Watch Gang Black Review

The December watch featured the vintage look from Szanto.

It comes with a few cards – but it doesn’t list out the brands for the subscription levels.

Szanto Desert Sands 4501 Watch – Value $250

If you’re looking for that vintage leather look – then look no further than this classic looking Szanto watch!

The watch face is big and bold – it’s all water resistant up to 100 meters as well.

The housing has a really slick patina bronze look to it. In my head, the thing I thought was that this is the watch that Indiana Jones would be wearing.

It’s got that antique look everywhere, including the thick leather straps.

It is battery operated, though.

Verdict: I really loved the unique selection of this month’s watch – it’s a bold statement! This one is up there with one of my favorite selections, too. If you’re like me and like to switch up your watches all of the time, then I couldn’t recommend this subscription enough!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – they’re shipping out December boxes at the moment – but each month is a mystery assortment with no guarantee that you’ll get the same watch as I do.

Coupon – There are no coupons at the moment.

  1. Eric – great review. Do they have a women’s sub?

  2. I really love these reviews. The watches are always really great in quality and stylish. I wonder what you get with the Platinum subscription because the Black is already tough to beat.
