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.

Heritor HR7602 Watch – Value $800 at NewEgg (1 available for $400 on Amazon)

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. 

From their FAQ:

If you signup between the 1st and the 10th, you will receive that month’s watch and your membership will renew on the 30th. If you signup after the 10th, you will receive the following month’s watch. Our cut-off time for our monthly shipment is 4 PM PST on the 10th of each month. Your renewal will begin the following month on the 30th.

Coupon – There are no coupons at the moment.

  1. did they add a new level? I see an extra card that says Centum.

    and didn’t the card used to say what brands were being featured in each tier for the month?

    do you know if you can jump between tiers month to month or are you locked into your tier once you sub? (unless you cancel and re-sub another tier) I like the Black watches you’ve been posting but it might be nice to splurge for birthday/anniversary/Christmas

  2. Wow the details on this watch are amazing!! Way to start the new yr with this awesome one!!!

  3. Do you ever think that maybe they send you some of their best, because you’re a reviewer?
    That said, I wish they had a subscription for women!

    • I reached out to our contact at Watch Gang about this – he let us know that they have a team that procures watches in each tier and then an algorithm tells us what to send members based on their preferences. Our membership is anonymous and not noted as anything special – so those procurement teams don’t make any decisions based on that.

      Hope that helps!

      • Thanks! It does.
