I have a platinum plan. Got my first watch today. And... It's not my thing. I looked it up, and sure the website for the watch has it listed at $699, a large 44mm wide semi-pilot watch with a Miyota automatic movement.
I knew going in I couldn't return it and looking on ebay, people can't sell them at $125, so I can't even recoup my expense off the membership. If this is how they do things, I want out. The business model seems to be to find some company with stacks of boutique watches they can't sell, buy them for a fraction of the retail cost and then dump them on the Watch Gang subscribers for a profit.
I don't think it's a bad business model, Watch Gang sends you whatever they have, you don't get to choose what kind of watch you like, size, features, other than price range. AND in a creepy way, they have NO WAY to simply end your subscription via the website.
Type in the words "cancel subscription" and NOTHING comes up. So, now, I have to reach out and hopefully it doesn't lead to me canceling a credit card or my paypal account to get out of this.
