Results of Watch Gang Subscription

Recommended Posts

I said that I would update everyone with the results of my WatchGang test subscription, and here it is. Although I'm not a huge fan of vintage style watches, this one is pretty nice for the money. This cost me $299 for the month subscription, and if I decide I don't want it (I'm still on the fence), multiple people on the official group have offered all the way up to full retail ($699) to buy it, so there is profit in my experiment at least. This is a brand called Out Of Order, and they distress and damage most of their line of watches, with this one being a homage to the Pepsi Rolex. Although the bracelet is a little more worn than I would like, it also comes with a leather strap. Overall, I'm happy with this test, and if I sell it I will be trying out another month with part of the profits to see what else I can get. I did get exceedingly lucky with what I was sent, but overall it seems that people are getting watches that are at least worth their membership. Full specs are below:

Stainless steel case 44 mm with turning bezel.
Flat mineral glass.
Stainless steel screw case back.
Screw Crown
Water resistant 10 ATM (100 meters)
Strap 22 mm SS with interchangeable genuine leather strap
Movement Miyota automatic 8215
Made in Italy

I just found a watch on the curbside, nicely patina'ed, too!

You can have it for half that.:bananarider:

True it's heavily distressed, but with the leather band, it doesn't look too bad. Even if less distressed, I'm not a fan of vintage styles, so this will most likely be sold off.

That's awful personally I'd be pretty pissed at paying $300 for a no brand 8215.   

Although if you have a $700 offer cash in now before the sucker changes their mind

It feels pretty nice to be honest, and has its 2 year warranty, so I wouldn't say one should be upset to get this for $299. It's definitely a gamble with the sunscription, and while this may not be to my (or your) taste, it's at least an easy sell at a good profit.

It was actually sold for $650 less than half an hour after posting. I get the comments, and I agree that the style is out there, but it felt really solid overall. Most members of this watch group seem to be new and are more after looks than the details we look for here (movement, crystal, assembly method). As a result, quartz is king over there, and certain models and brands make them go crazy, which at the moment is Out Of Order, Deep Blue, and the lower end Tag Huer quartz models. I got lucky and was able to make a healthy profit on my gamble, and as a result, I'll be subscribing again next month to see what comes in.

So, is it junk? I don't think so... It's got a reliable, workhorse movement, 100m water resistance, 2 year warranty, and styling that the members there like and will pay close to retail for. Out of the deal I got another free month of membership there, as well as some play money to put towards the next casino trip, so I'm extremely pleased.

No "heat treat"? :D

Nah, that one came like that. The heat treat craze has died off... I wonder why :D

I'm sorry OP,  but in every conceivable way that is just a ragged-arse lookin' POS....and whether the 'in-the-know' self-hyped-up proselytes estimate it at 300 or 700 bucks offers no real quantifiable value whatsoever to alter my opinion on that.

It is just shite. Get out while you're ahead...;)

Definitely ragged looking, but we disagree on the POS part. If it was in fact a POS, I would have no problem admitting that, but the specs are that of a decent budget watch. Is it worth $699 or even the $650 I sold it at? Definitely not. But I was able to make some money on it, and I plan to try again next month. I'll admit that I have very specific tastes with my watches, but it's fun to try out new things, especially because, at the very least, I can make my money back.

No fucking way that was worth $300 but if you found a moron to pay you double that then its a win for you,  personally would feel pretty bad taking that much off someone for that shit but if they were desperate enough to buy it to hand that money over more fool them

"Surprise" 

it might be a Rolex :lmao: 

 

Get a watch every month for at least 5X your subscription.... or at least that's what it says, I wonder who put a value on that pile of crap at $1495 :lol:  and a stuttering miyota in there too.

very sad

It's the scratches on the bezel, scratches all going in a radius effect, which turn it into a piece of..........

 

That's not patina, those are scratches in a sunburst style.
