7 Best Horological Watch YouTube Vloggers / Channels To Follow

I think most watch lovers like me will go to YouTube apart from other medium like Google and Instagram to scour the videos for some interesting reviews of wrist watches. We men are highly visual creatures and all it takes is a good video production to make you want that watch you never needed while some are just looking for some entertaining discussion of the topic. Here’s my top personal favorite list that I subscribe to. Let me know what’s yours in the comments below.

aBlogToWatch

Ariel Adams who started aBlogToRead now known as aBlogToWatch is widely regarded as one of the top watch blogs around. He and his team also does video reviews and the occasional podcast called Spending Time. Mainly covering entry to mid-level luxury wrist watches but you still do see occasional mid-tier affordable watch reviews.

The Urban Gentry

Tristano also known as TGV started his channel in 2014 and has a meteoric rise in popularity now exceeding 300,000 subscribers in such a short time where it has also caught some controversy in the watch community. He does put effort in churning out quality watch reviews in the affordable and entry-level luxury category that appeals to the mass.

Worn And Wound


One of my personal favorite watch site that looks at micro-brands and more affordable watches. Also one of the main reasons I got my Davosa Vanguard after seeing one of their video reviews.

Theo and Harris

If you’re into vintage watches, then check out Christian from Theo and Harris where he rants about all things vintage especially his favorite Rolex Datejust. He also sells vintage watches through his online watch shop.

Archie Luxury

Paul Pluta runs the ArchieLuxury channel and might not appeal to most people as most of his videos contain profanities and extreme behavior. He does offer an entertaining twist to luxury wrist watches but take his advice with a grain of salt. A word of warning, don’t watch his videos with your kids and wife if you don’t want to be banned from the hobby.

Hodinkee

This is another comprehensive watch blog with its panel of very knowledgeable watch pundits giving expert advice on everything watch related. I personally like the Talking Watches series where celebrities share their watch passion and personal timepieces.

Minit Watch

I accidentally stumbled upon this channel a while back and was instantly drawn to his witty and pretty darn funny watch reviews. He also offers good DIY and watch modding tips. Occasionally, his two puppets friends will give their opinions as well. On top of that, he has a smaller 6.5 inch wrist size and is helpful to gauge how a watch would look on the wrist.

    My favourite watch youtuber is “Federico Talks Watches”, an excellent reviewer and watch lover. Archi Luxury should not be in the list, he has serious mental health issues. Regards, Mau.

      Hi, I follow Federico as well though nowadays not as active on his channel. Thanks for sharing. Archie Luxury do have a lot of haters and can be annoying to some but even Ariel Adams interviewed him recently.

    Hi, you missed some excellent watch reviewers but included some rather dubious choices. I would personally remove Archie, Theo and Harris and Properly Wound from this list, and instead direct people towards Armand the Watch Guy; theWatches.tv; Bruce Williams; Average Bros; and WatchReport.com. As someone who spends hours watching watch reviews every week, I can highly recommend these and would not bother with the three mentioned above on your list.

      Yes, I’m sure there are many more out there but then again like I mentioned in the post this is just my personal preference. You can choose to ignore those you don’t like in the list. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Archie is not for everyone, but if he should not be on this list, the same can be said of The Urban Gentry. Too much time listening to another self absorbed dude, who knows less than Archie, Archie rarely struts his watch collecting knowledge, who takes way more time beating around the bush and getting to the point. WatchAdvisor seems to be very astute and Armand The Watch Guy should displace Urban Geneva. My 2 cents.

    I have been watching Watch Addiction Watch reviews on youtube, he was around before alot of the new channels popped up out of nowhere, you should check it out, its no nonsense, just straight watch reviews, the way it should be.

    The only YouTube watch channel with substance is WatchArtSci. The rest don’t have much information except how a watch looks like.
