We are officially one-third of the way through the year, which means we are due for another edition of your favorite segment, the Instagram Watch Power Rankings. Here’s the deal: I’ve neglected my family, friends, and work responsibilities to comb through Instagram for the better part of my life, picking out the very best pieces that pop up in my feed. Think of this as a chance to enjoy some interesting and unique watches put in a scientifically correct order. Congratulations in advance to those who made the list.
