Not only am I going to show you my watch collection, but I’m going to give it away. I have decided to give away 50 of my 53 watches in honor of my new YouTube channel Alpha Mpire.
I am a watch slut!
I love watches so much that I consider myself a watch slut. I mean that I’ll rock anything from a $5 Casio to a $35 Timex Weekender to MVMT to Vincero to high-end watches. I love watches. They are fantastic accessories that men can express their style. But they are more than that for me. They are confidence — when I wear a watch, I feel more confident about myself.
As many of you know, I grew up poor. Well, one day, I saw this Casio calculator watch in Sears. I thought it was terrific. My mom said I couldn’t have it because we couldn’t afford it, so I did what a normal kid would do. I saved up for my first accessory. I bought it, and my feelings of insecurity were gone. I felt like a king when I put it on.
When I was in 6th grade, it was all about Swatch watches. They blew my mind with all the different colors, straps, and types. I was obsessed. Whenever I put one on, I would feel fantastic. When I graduated from college, my dad and I went watch shopping. I bought my first expensive watch for $250. It was an Esq Chronograph that I had seen on the cover of a GQ magazine.
But the next watch that would change everything — a Rolex Milgauss with a green sapphire crystal with the orange lightning bolt second hand. When I saw that watch, I knew I would if I ever could buy it. For me, it’s symbolized success. I loved Rolex watches but never could afford one. Well, seven years ago, it finally happened. I treated myself and celebrated my success with a Rolex Milgauss. And now, I will give this watch to one of you.
My New YouTube Channel — Alpha MPire
On my new YouTube channel, Alpha Mpire, I’m giving free advice on how to start and build your own personal empire. One of the videos I recently filmed was about that watch. It was about the fact that the watch made me a more successful entrepreneur because I was more confident. I felt like I belonged in rooms with guys I would have otherwise been insecure about.
Watches are more than simply amazing accessories. And although I love all of my watches, I know you will love some more than I do. I want to give these watches away to you because instead of having them sit and not getting used, they will be on your wrists. I want you to look down at your wrist and think if I can do it, you can too. It’s a boost of confidence.
With my new channel, I share my true passion for entrepreneurship & business and what I’ve learned over the years of building multimillion-dollar companies. I’m not the most successful guy out there and not the smartest, but I’m a hard worker. So, if I can do it, you can do it too. If you’re into business or want to start a side hustle in the future, I am sharing things I wish I had known when I was starting out.
How to get one of my watches
If you want to grab one of my watches, I will randomly select 50 names — starting in a couple of weeks, I will send out ten a week for the next five weeks. You can be international or domestic, and your age doesn’t matter.
- Email me your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Send me ONLY ONE EMAIL. Not 20! Not 10! If you send me multiple emails, you’re going to be disqualified.
My watch collection
Take a minute and watch the rest of the video (starting at 6:15), where I show you some of my favorite watches, including the MVMT watch that broke the internet. It was a joke that definitely did not land well.
