January 2018 Watch Gang Black Review
The January 2018 Black tier shipment featured a sport and sleek watch from Heritor.
Watch Gang arrives with these illustrated cards. It's really just to prompt you to share - but doesn't reveal brands.
This month's watch features a sporty mesh of stainless steel and black leather from Heritor.
The watch face really shows off the sporty but still rugged and fashionable look in all of its details. The date section has a piece of magnifying glass over it for easy reading, too.
Overall, the housing it's super thick in any way. It maintains a smaller profile on my wrist, which is exactly what I'm looking for.
It's powered by automatic movement, which is always my preference - no batteries needed. It's also water resistant up to 330 feet.
The strap is a simple, thin, black leather band.
Like all of the watches I've received from Watch Gang, it also comes with warranty cards and information.
Verdict: I feel like I'm really building quite the arsenal of watches for all occasions and looks - and it's been a blast. This month continues my love for this subscription - I've been able to gift these and keep them for different outfits without feeling burnt out - I'm always excited about what's next!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No - they're shipping out February boxes at the moment - but each month is a mystery assortment with no guarantee that you'll get the same watch as I do.
