Don't get us wrong: We think you should read Gear Patrol for all your watch-related news. And, of course, our friends at great sites like HODINKEE, Worn & Wound, etc, etc, etc. We read 'em all, personally.

But sometimes, you just want a good, ol' fashioned, physical thing to read. You know, like a a magazine, or a zine, or a journal or something. One of those things that looks great on your coffee table. (Such as, you know, the print version of Gear Patrol.)

So here's a short list of some of our favorite watch-related print media. Some of it's from the established watch media, and some of it's zines from watch brands, and some of it's, well, other stuff. But it's all fun stuff, and makes for great reading. Check it out!
