How To Grow On Instagram

In primo piano

Me As MrWatch93 is the perfect guide to understand how to grow on instagram and is my personal experience on this social media and tells how I have grown to over 12,000 followers in less than 1 year.

Many people ask me for advice on how to grow on Instagram, this is the reason why I decided to tell my experience and the strategies I used.

I myself have always looked for lots of videos and guides explaining how you can grow on Instagram without being already known, but unfortunately I have never found anyone who tells their experience from scratch, so I decided to do it myself.

I hope to help those who, like me, want to share their passion through the fascinating world of social media! 


Below you can read the preview of my guide how to grow on instagram!

How To Grow On Instagram

how to grow on instagram

If you read this guide and fully understand the things I’ve written, you’ll learn how to get real followers completely independently and without the help of bots or anything like that.

Specifically, I would like to point out that I will not even address the issue of sponsorships, not because there is anything wrong with using them (on the contrary!), but because until now I have decided not to use them.

So, before explaining how to do it, it is necessary to list the pillars on which I have based myself and which will serve to structure you mentally to have a constant growth:


2) Patience

3) Engagement

4) Control

Let’s take a look.


Consistency is a key aspect of growing on Instagram. In fact, if you’re serious about it, growth has to happen continuously, every day even if it’s just 1 follower, but you’ll always have to grow. Consistency is the foundation, without it you can’t win.


Patience goes hand in hand with consistency, it must always be there. There will be times when you will lose some followers (follow/unfollow tactics are very common) and you will feel discouraged. But that’s when you have to show patience and get back to work to grow more.


A very important word (to grow on instagram) on which the value of your profile depends. A high engagement rate means that you are doing a great job, you have created an active community with real followers. This means that your profile can be interesting for brands.

But how to have a profile with high engagement? How to create a community? To achieve these results you have to be ‘active’ yourself and therefore communicate with your followers or potential followers, comment on interesting posts and put likes.


Keeping track of your progress is always important, so even if you want to grow on Instagram.

There are many free tools to do this, for example ninjalitics or the popular followers/unfollowers app. These are the apps I have used to monitor the progress of followers and in general my daily growth based on goals.

These are the basics for a successful Instagram profile, are you curious about my experience step by step?


RSM Watch strap

In primo piano

Finally is time to talk about some new straps and rsm watch strap is really interesting!

They started off with the Herringbone Twill Strap.

It was inspired from the historical M1941 HBT uniform issued to soldiers during WWII.

It is the first of its kind in the market.

Field Gray
Artillery black

They experiment and test products at great lengths and RSM has built a reputation for quality over short span of time.

Rethinking and redefining what a product means to its user both in terms of aesthetics and function is the core of our ethos.

Are fabric bands only for divers? Is the watch roll the best for carrying your watches around?

Also from the photos on their website you can totally understand the attention to the details and to the presentation of the straps!

RSM Watch straps are distributing from the United States, Singapore and UK depending on proximity of the customer location. 

RSM Watch straps – Vintage Mil 2 piece

Another really interesting model is the vintage Mil 2 piece straps,

The spirit of exploration and toughness is encapsulated in this 2 piece range.

The old school weave with the variety of distressed hard wares may trigger your memory of school bags, ammo pouches or other gears from the past. In a time where there was no vigorous standardization of mobile phones, cars or clothes : individual personalities emerged.

Mil Black

Not for the faint-hearted, this strap is perfect for your daily work horse.

The surfaces are already randomly treated and stressed.

You don’t carry the burden of baby-ing the buckles. You wear your time piece with new confidence.

Why buy?

There are a lot of watch straps producers in the world and generally all the watch straps makers don’t pay attention to details and to the importance of make a special product because they think “we just make straps”.

But in this case RSM Watch strap has achieved a really awesome result making a genuine and well thought product with the purpose of let the watch lover enjoy in a better way his watch.

This is also the reason why i dedicated a section to special watch straps makers and why i am so happy to put RSM Watch strap in this section of my site!

Horon Watches Microbrand

In primo piano

Horon watches is the new Microbrand i want to present you today!

They are launching their first timepiece, the Ocean Hunter, an incredible Dive Watch collection inspired by the ocean and intrepid exploration.

It’s a powerful masterpiece, boasting incredible materials, including genuine meteorite!

The Ocean Hunter features a 42mm fully machined, marine-grade stainless steel case with 300m water resistance, fortified by a screw-down crown.

This dive watch has a unique two-tone bezel.

This element of the watch is something that Horon Watches worked hard on to get perfectly precise.

In order to achieve the two-tone appearance, the heating and cooling process must be carefully controlled, this is a challenging task to machine, and is a time-consuming exercise.

Once molded, the ceramic still needs to undergo a circular brush action, to smoothen out the surface.

This diver uses premium Super-LumiNova indices in a combination of vivid luminous blue (BGW9) and brilliant luminous light green(C3).

This effective blend of indices allows for efficient time reading under all conditions.

Ocean Hunter – Meteorite Dial

Horon Watches made this timepiece so special with a really cool Meteorite Dial.

The meteorite piece is made using genuine Muonionalusta meteorite.

This material was first discovered in 1906, in a remote village in Finland and scientists believe that it comes from part of the solar system’s iron core, or may have fallen from a remote planet.

This incredible diver is Mechanised by the reliable and reputable Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement (visible thanks to the open case back), beating at 28,800bph(4Hz), the Ocean Hunter provides an outstanding 38 hours of power reserve.

Arethusa watches

In primo piano

I just discovered a new microbrand called ARETHUSA WATCHES!

I think that this microbrand is really special and i want to share with you all the incredible details and informations about their watches and story to make you better understand what kind of model you can choose and why i suggest these watches!

First of all Arethusa is based in HARTFORD, Connecticut (USA) and there is a true story behind the name of this microbrand.

The HMS Arethusa, the name ship of her class (Arethusa light-cruisers), was commissioned by the royal navy on the 21st of May, 1935.

Arethusa saw an active WWII campaign and Ethan (the founder) said that his grandfather served as Petty Supply Officer aboard the HMS Arethusa throughout World War II and was a world class gentleman and seasoned sailor.

Arethusa – discover the watch

This watch is a World Diver 200M based on a 40mm case diameter and Seiko NH35A movement and are available 3 different models (carbon, admiral blue, intruments black).

This watch is caracterized also by 316 Stainless steel and sapphire double domed, internal anti-reflective coating.

arethusa world diver
Arethusa Admiral Blue

The Arethusa World Diver has a really nice 120 click unidirectional ceramic bezel with different insert details like the BGW9 Super-luminova as you can see from the photo.

The world time bezel track allows conversion of the current local time to other timezones displayed on the bezel.

arethusa world diver

This kind of LUME makes the Arethusa Wolrd Diver a special wrist friend also in a super dark night moment and in this range of price is really difficult to find something like this.

arethusa world diver

Arethusa – design and quality watches

All ARETHUSA watches are timekeeping instruments optimized for travel and are designed to evoke the spirit of exploration.

At the conceptual stage, they identify a type of exploration to express through design.

The handset is designed to provide bold, immediate reference points for setting the bezel pip for 15, 30 and 45 minutes timers.

In the case of the World Diver, they considered the needs of the globetrotting recreational diver while visiting dive locations around the world.

The minimalist central small-seconds hand is inspired by the sweep of an analog radar scope!

arethusa world diver

The design is the core of Arethusa Watches, and where the greatest investment of time lies.

They iterate designs quickly via prototyping with 3D printing, allowing them to validate their concepts and bring more to their watches in a shorter development cycle.

Their cases are CNC milled from solid billet 316L stainless steel and thoroughly tested to ensure reliable performance on any adventure.

Arethusa Carbon Dial

What you get when you buy the watch?

– ARETHUSA branded waxed canvas 5 watch travel roll with leather trim

– branded polishing cloth

Arethusa – why buy

These watches are absolutely interesting, not only because of the story behind the brand but also because of the revolutionary design given from the different parts of the watch, starting from the hands to the dial and the super luminova of the bezel.

Everything is in perfect harmony giving a solid but also sporty look to the watch.

MW Timepieces Microbrand

In primo piano

Today i want to take a look to the first premium microbrand from Indonesia called MW Timepieces with their new model the LEGATODIVER, a Modern classic dive watch with a musical approach that you have never seen before!

MW Timepieces was born from their small design project called MaestroWorks Studio in
Jakarta, Indonesia.

The idea is to make a proper design processing with a well-experienced

Their design team is a combination of watch enthusiasts and graphic designers.

Led by Adrian who is very driven to create a premium wristwatch brand from Indonesia, which
focuses on designed language, iconic timepieces inspirations, well manufacturing process,
advanced specifications, and proper quality control.

Finally, their first design was created at the end of 2018.

They called it LEGATODIVER that will be the first-ever premium wristwatch with a combination of musical approaches and iconic timepieces that ever existed.

MW Timepieces will release its long-awaited classic and timeless dive watch collection, LEGATODIVER, on Kickstarter.


LEGATODIVER is designed to combine arts, sports, elegance, and durable timepieces.

This is going to be the first of its kind dive watch inspired by musical instruments, as i am a guitar player i really happy to present a watch like this.

You can see the 6 strings on the bezel creating an incredible guitar fretboard!


The diving bezel must be simple yet useful. 120 Clicks uni-directional rotating bezel, Easy to read, and filled with luminous.

LEGATODIVER bezel is designed to be very distinctive, inspired by guitar fretboard with all guitar strings and pick-up which technically takes time to be aligned by a watchmaker.

They finally execute this part perfectly by having a fretboard engraved, brushed on stainless steel bezel insert, filled with luminous, and protected by flat sapphire crystal as well as making dynamic looks of the bezel.

This is the first of its kind. Distinctive bezel design with proper manufacturing execution. 

Unique pieces, excellent diving ability, reliable SW200-1 Swiss movement, simplicity, and stand-out luminescence.


If you see a dive watch with excellent luminance, that is not an extraordinary thing, because the dive watch must have excellent luminous to be easy to read in a deepwater environment.

LEGATODIVER luminous is beyond “excellent” level. Super-LumiNova® is mandatory to be used on LEGATODIVER and they choose Super-LumiNova® BGW9 for brightness and durability and they decided to put in almost part of the watch, Indices, Hands, Date, Minute Tracker, Engraved part of the bezel insert, and crown sign.

They even made a legatodiver variant in which the dial is completely filled with Super-LumiNova® BGW9. That is why we dare to declare that LEGATODIVER will be a Luminous Killer

Legato diver – crown details


Date wheel with luminous is something new to apply in microbrand watches industry and even this idea has never been applied to mainstream watch brands.

LEGATODIVER will be one of the dive watches to apply this distinctive idea.

This is not an easy task, the date wheel must be reprinted and filled with Super-LumiNova® BGW9, but MW Timepiece is proud to feature this idea in their LEGATODIVER 

Perfect 42 mm diameter size (included crown)

LEGATODIVER is a musically inspired timepiece, combining the essence of a guitar fretboard
and pick-up.

They finally execute this part perfectly by having it engraved on the underside of
sapphire crystal.

Turn the watch over and you will be pleasantly surprised to see an acoustic
guitar hole, which subtly reveals the Sellita SW200 Swiss automatic movement that powers
the watch. (Exhibition style, engraved with specifications, chemical engravings artworks, and
sapphire crystal with guitar string artworks printed on the underside of sapphire crystal).


Legatodiver is powered by reliable Swiss Movement; Sellita Calibre SW200-1 which is known as a very reliable movement that is being used by major watch brands all over the world.

Hi-beat movement running in 28,800vph, 26 Jewels, Power reserve up to 38 hours with 300m water-resistant ability.


They almost applied every new idea to LEGATODIVER. Dressing up watches is something cool to do in the world of horology, but most of the time we found it difficult to replace the bracelet with another kind of straps. This won’t happen in LEGATODIVER, They provide drilled-lug holes as well as DOUBLE SIDED QUICK RELEASE mechanism in a solid 316L stainless steel bracelet. Replacing the strap won’t be an issue, it will only take less than a minute to replace the bracelet with other straps.


As LEGATODIVER is one of the true dive watches that is heavily inspired by guitar elements, having a bezel inspired by guitar fretboard is not enough, they decided to put acoustic guitar hole inspiration in LEGATODIVER case back.

Their exhibition case back will be one of kind, 316L stainless steel case back, exhibition style, engraved with specifications, 3D stamped artworks, and cover with black-tint sapphire crystal as well as printed with guitar string artworks from the inside of the crystal. You will never find this idea in other dive watches.


A good bracelet has to be able to do this! Forged from 316L stainless steel and tapering from 20mm to 16mm, the bracelet’s solid and fully articulating links echo designs. This robust bracelet has undergone the same proprietary hardening process as the case, with no sharp edges, well-articulated, perfect thickness, screw-pin bracelet adjustment, quick-release mechanism, and a mild double-locking deployant clasp for your secure wearing.

Music touches the soul in darkness and light, and so does the LEGATODIVER.

Each watch is generously applied with Super-LumiNova®. Even the date wheel, crown sign, and minute tracks are filled with Super-LumiNova® which is something that you can only see in watches way beyond the price point of the LEGATODIVER.

With every watch enthusiast in mind, they incorporated double-sided quick-release spring bars
and drilled lug holes. Watch lovers will now be able to change amongst their vast collection
of straps with ease, only making the LEGATODIVER even more versatile.

LEGATODIVER – The packaging

Another interesting details is the wood packaging! You will find a little tool, card and additional strap.

The LEGATODIVER will come in five variants, Black, Blue, Teal, White, and a Limited edition
MERAH-PUTIH, which will be available in limited quantities.

You can check here all the different variations!

Pancerna watch microbrand

In primo piano

Let’s talk about Pancerna watch microbrand located in USA with their new model the P.7 Pilot!

The P.7 Pilot was meticulously designed from the ground up to not only be unique, but to withstand anything you can throw at it.

The unique lug design of the P.7 Pilot sets this watch apart from the repetitious watch cases that most watch companies use over and over in their watch designs.

​When you hold a Pancerna P.7 Pilot in your hand, you’ll notice a substantial, quality feel.

On the wrist, it feels rugged and ready for duty. The P.7 case is hardened coated to 1200V in a durable, ion plating (which is 8 times harder than stainless steel) to give it added protection from scratches.

Pancerna watches Details

The sapphire crystal adds another dimension of protection that will keep your watch looking like new for years to come.

At 40mm in width, the P.7 was designed to hit the sizing sweet spot that makes it perfect for everyone to wear, but by no means is the P.7 a small watch with a lug-to-lug length of 49mm.

The P.7 also appears a little larger on the wrist because of the lugs on the side of the case.

The beating heart of the P.7 Pilot is the self-winding MIYOTA 9039 automatic movement, which some people call the “Lexus” of Japanese automatic movements. It’s a workhorse movement that is accurate and reliable. 

​The P.7 Pilot is available in 5 color variations and they are also caracterized by a great lume!

Carte Blanche is has announced the debut of its first model on Kickstarter on the 28th of November, the Ocean Diver. A finely crafted timepiece for everyday sports or formal situations.

The Ocean Diver emits a sense of adventure throughout the day, thanks to its well-selected components, regulated Swiss movement, vintage appearance, and carefully chosen colors.

The desire to dive into a new adventure has never been greater.

The Ocean Diver’s timeless design is inspired by vintage watches.

The 13mm thick case is made of stainless steel and translates the shapes of vintage watches into a contemporary design language.

Equipped with a double domed Sapphire crystal, a screw-down stainless steel case back and a screw-in crown, the Ocean Diver has a water resistance of 200m.

The unidirectional 120-click ceramic bezel features an elapsed time system and is equipped with Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9.

Inside the watch case, a Swiss-made movement beats at 28,800 beats per hour.

Its 41mm case is the perfect size on most wrists.

Available in two different color combinations, you’re sure to find the perfect outfit to match your watch in your wardrobe, making the Ocean Diver your faithful companion.

Details Movement:

Swiss Technology Production – or STP for short – is a Swiss manufacturer of mechanical watch movements based in Glovelier.

The entire assembly takes place directly in their own Swiss facility, in line with classic watchmaking tradition.The flagship of the brand is the automatic movement STP 1-11, which does not have to hide from other well-known manufacturers in terms of processing quality and precision.

The reliable movement caliber 1-11 is now the heart of numerous automatic watches from well-known manufacturers.

The movement also powers the presented Swiss automatic watch, Ocean Diver Deep Sea and Ocean Diver Maldives.

The movement is assembled using state-of-the-art high technology.

Ocean Diver Deep Sea

The marriage of case and movement then takes place in traditional watchmaking handwork.
Both steps are performed in Switzerland, which gives the watch a true Swiss identity.

The dark blue of the Ocean Diver Deep Sea embodies the biodiverse depths of the open sea.

Inspired by impressive nature, the Deep Sea tries to integrate itself into the natural environment of
its wearer in a restrained but nevertheless consistent way.

Ocean Diver Maldives

The bright mint color of the Ocean Diver Maldives symbolizes the many color variations that the sea reflects. It is meant to be a companion on cozy days at the beach or far out at sea.

TOOL WATCH CO. Microbrand

In primo piano

Today i want to present a new microbrand that i just discovered!

This new microbrand is TOOL WATCH CO. and has just developed a new interesting timepiece, the Arctic!

The Arctic is a robust, technical timepiece designed for accuracy and legibility, drawing
inspiration from the adventurous spirit of the early polar pioneers.

This new watch will be launched through Kickstarter on 2 November 2021.

The Arctic is a refined 38mm titanium, field-style watch for men and women and will be
available in 3 versions; the Signature Series blue meteorite dial, the Limited Edition black
meteorite dial, and the One of Ten white/grey meteorite dial.

The Arctic One of Ten is limited to ten units worldwide, and owners of this exclusive timepiece will have the option to work with Tool Watch Co’s design team to personalize their case back engraving.

Tool watch co. INSPIRATION

Tool Watch Co. takes inspiration seriously in its design process. Every aspect of their watches,
from colour choice to their components is thoughtfully considered.

The choice of the natural meteorite dial represents Greenlands Hiawatha Glacier – the first meteorite impact crater ever discovered under Earth’s ice sheets.

Cutting and finishing a meteorite dial requires time and skill.
Each Arctic dial is made from a solid slice of the Muonionalusta meteorite (found north of the
Arctic circle), and treated to bring out its natural crystalline pattern.

Swiss Super-Luminova GradeA BGW9 lume is used on the signature hour and minute hands, Arctic hunting-tool seconds hand, and dial indices for exceptional low light legibility.

They have developed a specific dial text methodology that will carry through to further models.
About the model designation sits at the top of the dial, and the subtext below acts as a summarised spec sheet of the core attributes of the watch in line with their tool watch aesthetic and the DNA of tool watches in general.


Tool Watch Co. has chosen Sellita’s SW200 to power the Arctic, a premium Swiss movement
known for its precision, accuracy, and reliability. Tool Watch Co’s choice tin using Sellita’s Swiss
movements is influenced by using watch movements that resonate with the region of inspiration,
in this case, northern Europe.

Luxury brands that use Sellita movements include IWC, Tag, Hublot, and Breitling.


The case back features an original engraving of a polar bear on Tool Watch Co’s signature pattern,
symbolic of the harsh environment and enduring spirit of the Arctic.


Each Arctic will include a Saffiano strap, drawing on the heritage of using leather straps in cold
conditions, and a signature in-house designed titanium h-link bracelet. Watches and h-link
bracelets use HV1200 scratch-resistant coating. A half-link will be included with each bracelet so
customers can size it perfectly.


They have engineered their packaging using environmentally-friendly foam. It is non-toxic,
lightweight, impact-resistant and, 100% recyclable. Its core purpose is to offset the CO2
generated by shipping heavier items of the same size and reducing non-recyclable waste.

Isotope Watches Microbrand

In primo piano

Today I want to show you the microbrand Isotope watches, a watch that really surprised me and probably one of the best diver at such a competitive price.

After discovering this watch on Instagram I decided to review it through my Mrwatch93 page.

The diver in question is the Goutte d’Eau model, whose shape was conceived taking inspiration from the 1937 Talbot Lago t150 car. Seeing the case of the watch you immediately understand why.

Isotope watches has conceived this watch with a high quality diver in mind but with an absolutely contained shape (40 mm in diameter).

Isotope Watches – you decide the movement

This watch has several features that make it special. Starting first with the choice of automatic movement, we can in fact decide to have a Seiko NH38 movement (41 hours power reserve and accuracy -20/+40 seconds per day) or a SwissMade Sellita SW2000 movement (38 hours power reserve and accuracy -12/+12 seconds per day).

316L steel, sapphire crystal and water resistance up to 200 meters complete the qualities of this watch, along with the obviously screw-down crown and internal rotating bezel.

Among the features that struck me most we have the colors of this watch starting from the second hand, until the strap born and the crown that moves the inner bezel, all these elements always present the same color harmony.

In fact, Isotope Watches are available in green, red, blue, yellow and orange!
