Holiday Gift Guide For Men: THE 12 LUCKIEST WATCHES TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR

The holiday spirit is upon us all. Most people associate luck with a game of chance. And while there is an element of opportunity in the game, it doesn’t define luck. Research has found a correlation between good luck and a positive attitude. In short, being lucky is a reflection of the choices we make. Our choices define how we see and interpret the world. 

Our choices outside the periphery of margins unlock great possibilities, known as luck. Luck is something you can attract toward yourself. A watch brings luck because your vibration increases when you wear it. And knowing you have an expensive watch on will give you a hefty dose of confidence, strength, and luck! 

Happy Holidays!

The Big Bang is now made of steel in a limited edition of 200 pieces. USD 24,100
