Thoughts on those watch subscription boxes like Watch Gang that send you a new watch every month? Anyone here ever sign up?

It’s not quite a scam, but it’s a bad deal. They give you a bunch of no name microbrands that MSRP at prices comparable to the subscription price, but in truth have far less value. Once in a blue moon they send something half decent, but it’s not worth what’s essentially a monthly lottery.

MBG here: I really wanted to like Melbourne, but saw enough reviews from Jody on JOMW where they had quality issues. Don’t think they sell all that well.
Didn’t recognize any other micros, and that’s not a great sign.
The thing about micros is that they don’t really have great margins. It’s contract manufacturing, the successful ones like Zelos do it with high inventory turns. If someone is selling it to you for a discount after they’ve already taken their cut, it means the price was never real to begin with or they’re dumping inventory.

Hi Fishes,

Working at Infy for 10LPA on AWS, DevOps.

People around are saying save tcs for retirement. I am confident enough that I will get a better salary offer than TCS in next 45 days. Will turning down TCS offer really cost in future? What should I do?

I like this watch on Christopher Ward, I have a wrist size of 15.4 cms. Apparently, they have the mesh bracelet starting from 19.0cms nothing below that. I called them up, she suggested I go for the leather strap which I’m not a fan of. The way the bracelet is designed I can’t even resize it. Is there a solution to this?
