This year I decided to purchase my own Christmas gift and to open it early. I have been watching this local watch company out of San Diego called MVMT Watches since I ran into someones MVMT post on my tumblr feed, I noticed in the post they had kick starter/indiegogo page. Once I read more about their campaign, on how they were striving to create a high quality watch that didn’t burn a hole in my pocket and that they were doing this all in my backyard of San Diego I was hooked. I kept a close eye on their Facebook page and saw that Urban Outfitters were having a sale on their watches and lead me to get one. I have had my Black/Tan Leather MVMT (more photos below) watch for 2 days now and I must say that I am impressed with their sleek design, style and comfort of their product. This is a great affordable Christmas gift for those that are still looking to buy something for that perfect guy in my opinion. Keep up the good work MVMT! -One Happy Customer, TreyPeezyHere FACEBOOK | TWITTER
