February 2018 Watch Gang Black Review

The January 2018 Black tier shipment featured a beautiful watch fromTUW Ruhla.

They now have information card for your specific tier! You’ll be able to look up specific details about the watches in your tier.

Here’s a look at the possible watches for February’s Black tier:

I love this new bit of the subscription!

It also arrived with a coupon code for Trendy Butler.

TUW Ruhla Thuringia – Value $255 on Amazon

The past few watches from Watch Gang have been so fantastic – across a number of different styles – that I assumed I was due for a dud. Instead, this might be my favorite, yet!

The watch face so simple and clean – with a nice little color stripe. It feels super classy.

This German watch has sapphire crystal glass with automatic movement and is water resistant up to 100 meters.

Everything feels and looks sleek and streamlined – with a stainless steel all over.

Verdict: I’m shocked at how great my past few months of watches have been – and this month is the cherry on top! This instantly became my go-to watch as soon as I popped it on my wrist. This subscription has been a blast for me as someone who loves trying new watches – if you’re the same, this could be a great subscription for you.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – they’re shipping out March 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.

Check out all of our Men’s Lifestyle Subscription Boxes in the Subscription Box List. Rate, review, and follow this subscription on the Watch Gang profile page.

  1. Great review. I agree that Watch Gang has been hitting it out of the park. I am seriously addicted to watches now.
