8past10: the Future of the Watch Forum Is Mobile

8past10: the Future of the Watch Forum Is Mobile

Best Watch

From associating with different aficionados on Instagram and on online forums to getting their every day portion of content from various websites, watch darlings in 2017 have various approaches to make the most of their pastime. However, in the event that Instagram just isn’t enough to fulfill your desire for #womw , there’s 8past10—a generally new application that offers everything from wrist shots and tests to tributes and audits from individuals essentially eager to share their adoration for watches. Christian invested some energy playing with the application to perceive what it’s all about.


8past10 has a format and usefulness like Instagram. There are tabs for “My Feed,” “Discover,” add photograph, “Alerts” and “You” (your profile). That makes it simple for any individual who has insight with Instagram to rapidly get the interface of 8past10. Being that it’s committed watch content, the territory where 8past10 dominates is in its “Discover” tab. In contrast to Instagram, clients can discover substantially more than just photographs and recordings. Here you can discover stories, included brands, progressing conversations, tests and featured users.

I likewise like that the “Discover” tab permits clients to extend the quantity of noticeable conversations, articles, and photographs. This empowers you to peruse the alternatives simpler and to rapidly work out your feed. Clients can likewise sort content through “Trending” or “Latest.”

Kristian Haagen is the app’s Editor-in-Chief and fellow benefactor. He has composed six books about watches, including one called “Hashtags & Watches,” and he’s a known character in the devotee community. Haagen posts frequently on the app—with his wrist shrouded in everything from Patek Philippes and IWCs to Rolexes and Omegas. He’s one to follow.

To develop the first content accessible through the application, 8Past10 is presently promising intrigued individuals to apply to become dynamic “bloggers”—users who compose long-structure audits and assessment pieces for the application. As one client turned-blogger so appropriately put it, “Reading is incredible yet exploring and feel sure about what you put out is an entirely different learning game.” This more elaborate degree of commitment from clients has some genuine potential to become the community. 

Adding a photograph is likewise extremely simple. Utilize the application to snap a picture or import one from your library, Facebook or Instagram. You have a decision of eight channels and an openness switch. All photographs are square, likewise like Instagram. After you’re finished with the altering, you select your watch’s make and model, style highlights (vintage, quartz, and so on) and value range. Add a subtitle and afterward post it. From a similar tab you can likewise make a conversation. Here you add a cover picture, compose a feature and depiction and post it. Clients have made conversation posts for input on watch buys, comparing case alternatives and discussing brands. It’s an extraordinary method to draw in the community in a direct way.

It has absolutely been a fun application to play with. I wind up perusing watches and perusing conversations pretty regularly. The stage is to some degree a cross between a customary discussion and Instagram, and you can connect with it as one would both of those two stages. There’s more inside and out content should you need it, but there’s likewise scrollable gorgeous sight, too.

But however much I appreciate the application, I do have a little issue that remains to be worked out. The client base presently slants toward all the more top of the line watches. I can’t say if there just aren’t enough clients that gather and post more reasonable and mid-level watches, or in the event that I haven’t yet found the clients that do, however the truth will surface eventually if the application draws a more assorted scope of authorities. I think it will.

That bandy aside, I would recommend 8past10 to individuals inspired by watches. It’s continually refreshed, it’s clean, and it’s easy to utilize. I intend to become somewhat more dynamic on it, as I actually depend on Instagram to post by far most of my wrist shots. However, that might be changing soon, particularly as the client base grows.
