Anybody Use This?

So, a Buddhist monk I know is signed up for a website called Watch Gang.

A quick look suggests it's a watch of the month club, with side chances to win this or that.

Google also came up with "Legit or scam?" results.

Thoughts?

Plenty of talk about it on FB watch groups. It's legit, but debatable value for money.

You get a watch a month. Mystery until it arrives. Allegedly always worth more than your subscription costs, and "guaranteed" to be 70% off retail. I guess they may use the Invicta retail model when guaging that, from what I've seen they are very obscure microbrands, probably the dross left over from shitty Kickstarter campaigns that they need to offload onto some poor unsuspecting buyers.

Could be wrong, but......

It seems somewhat materialistic for a Buddhist monk. You should reevaluate his commitment.

I saw this on FB too but skeptical about it, especially when they talk about Rolex

I wouldn't even consider searching "watch" or "gang" into google.

Merely typing "watch" use to get pages of uhhem... pages of stuff to "watch".  Now that I use duckduckgo I don't know what it will turn up.

Good luck  :)

Hank is in for a shock, when I show him the Gold Rolex that a grateful client gave me.

Or a somewhat grateful 'Gate seller almost gave me . . .near enough to free

I’d never leave my watch wants to a lucky dip. Sod’s law, I’d end up with a series of gold, bejewelled chronographs. No, no, no.

And so, we have an update.

Guy I know who does use them got a watch.

He paid whatever their lucky wheel spin fee was, not bleedin' much.

They generously put the full msrp on the customs slip, so customs obligingly put some massive amount of owing on the slip.

Guess I dodged *that* bullet.

Wow.

There is a facebook page for the watch gang where they trade and sell the watches they got, I had a good look before deciding and none of the you tube reviews or any of the watches would tempt me but here is a selection

3 levels of Watch Gang:  original, black, and platinum.  $29, 99, 299 per month.  What you get depends on what you pay.

Its an interesting concept.  There are many thousands of people in their facebook group.  Tens of thousands.  A lively group of traders.  Sounds like fun for a certain type of person.
