With spring having sprung, we're encouraging you to take a fresh look at things.

Whether that's looking inside at your personal values and how OB may have impacted you in unexpected ways; looking around the world at other OB schools or looking a little closer to home and seeing how you could support your watchmates. 

So dust off those winter cobwebs, grab a cuppa and peruse this month's My Watchmates.

Paying it forward

Following their Discovery Masters course in 2014, Batten watch decided to, well, pass the baton (excuse our pun).

A number of the watchmates clubbed together to raise $1,140 to sponsor this year's Discovery Masters community partnership watch that recently ran in August 2015. The icing on the cake? Our 2014 clan decided to pay it forward for a whopping five years and sponsor watchmates right up until 2019. 

If you're feeling inspired by Batten watch, why not talk to us about paying it forward to future generations of your own watch?

From being motivated to get new jobs, to the simple fact of feeling more confident, it turns out you guys have been pretty inspired.
