July 2018 Watch Gang Black Review
There are multiple options for each tier and what you get is a mystery each month. This month, I received a classy looking watch from Blackwell!
Blackwell Watch - Retail Value $355
The watch I received feels like a timeless design from Maxwell Watches.
The housing and strap is made of polished stainless steel, while the watch face is simple and modern looking - I love it!
The housing depth is pretty minimal as well - I've never been a fan of the large, almost oversized, looking watches - so this was perfect for me.
For my wrist, the watch dimensions just felt right!
It has automatic motion - so no batteries required - and is water resistant up to 100 meters. It certainly has a bit of weight to it - but you should expect that with the automatic movement and stainless steel housing and strap.
Speaking of the strap, it has an adjustable clasp. Youll be able to unlock this and slide on end up and down the strap until you find your perfect fit.
Like all of the watches from this subscription, it'll come with whatever little extras are packaged with it - and normally, that includes a warranty/guarantee card.
Verdict: I had gone a few months without a Watch Gang shipment - and I really missed reviewing it, so I was happy to see it come again! This watch is perfect for me. From the style to the size, it's almost like it was made to be worn by me - I couldn't be happier this month!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No - they're shipping out August boxes at the moment - but each month is a mystery assortment with no guarantee that you'll get the same watch as I do.
