Where's the price?

Too bad. Very nice simplistic design. But no day-date like Swatch watches in the same price range.
I just received the watch and I am loving it!!! Thank you MD!


What is the band length??
26.5 cm Long 21 mm Wide 2 mm Thick
As per Bertucci website and few other references the similar watch sold everywhere as the "DX3 Field Watch". Today, this watch sold for $40-$50 at Bertucci website "bargain cave"! I give MD a prize for clever use of words in advetrising tactics! The DX3 "Performance" Field Watch heh...?!
I still...joined the drop ;)

Dude a quick comparison of your photo of the DX3 Field and the massdrop photos of the watch here show they aren't the same watch.
It's all in the details...
The previus post by "Endoverend" explains it all. There isn't much in the details posted by MD. From past experience there is always something finicky in the MD item specifics.
Anyone know what courier will be use to ship this watch?
Got mine today. Well packed. Love the look and the size is perfect. The band is much more of a tan than the drop photos but I'm thinking I'll swap the strap for a leather one anyway.
Has anyone gotten there watch yet?
Still waiting on a UPS/FedEx tracking number.
Just got it the tracking number today.
How did I miss this drop? Been contemplating a Bertucci for some time, and wisited MD regularly..
You have another chance!!! Good luck
Thank you for letting me know!
"All-metal Japanese quartz movement" - sh*t description in most cases meaning sh*tty watch company. Don't buy watches from company that hide movement type, they doing this because they think you are stupid people.
Trustworthy watch company clearly describe movement type!
What do you expect for a $50 watch? This is a solid, workhorse of a watch for the price. I have had one for quite some time now and at $50 dollars it’s a tough watch for just what it says, the field. It’s a duty watch. It’s going to take a beating, but if it gets lost and destroyed, you didn’t break the bank on it.
You expect swiss movement at that price? You won’t get it. And if you paid for better movement, you shouldnt be taking it to the field.
Edit: I am actually wearing it right now.
The pricing is pretty ridiculous IMO. The watch actually costs $65 on their website but Massdrop is always misleading us by making us believe we're saving SOO much more with them. It's simply not true.
Furthermore, why is the glo-in-the-dark watch $20 more??? On their website it costs $75, meaning I only save $5 by buying it here (not a huge saving).

@cagas did you get the glow in the dark one?
Nope.. just the black and greyish one. Dont fancy the glow case.
This could be my eyes playing tricks on me but, the Bertucci logo appears to be off centered. The gap looks a bit closer (shorter) at the 10/22 marker than the 2/14 marker.
2 is one digit, 10 is two digits so its longer. I think the logo is correctly centered
People like to make fun of this watch company becasue they 1) have the same name as a popular pizza chain from New York and 2) they think becasue the name is Italian but are made in the States that they are somehow pulling a fast one.
I guess those are acceptable knee-jerk reactions?
I've owned one of their A-2T Titanium field watches for ages now. Amazing watch for the money. Still going on the original battery, the band is still going strong (I wash it every so often). Keeps perfect time. I was worried the Night Illumination would eventually wear off, but it still works fine. Glass is amazingly scratch free so far (I think I've just been lucky not to scratch it though) .I have no reason to believe this watch won't last for many more years to come.
I have the same watch and its one of my favorites even though it's quartz. I think the reason that the crystal doesn't get scratched is because it's recessed and protected by the bezel (mine is also completely scratch free). And for whatever reason all the scratches that I see on the case tend to add character instead of looking like blemishes. Overall great watches and more people should give them a chance.
I didn't see the warranty info, is it issued by the manufacturer or by a third party supported by MD?
This is a very fake italian watch company.
It's a US watch company started by someone with the last name Bertucci. How is that a fake Italian company, exactly?
I would like a watch branded Childish Gambino.
Anyone have experience with the glow case?
Anyone know if the green glow dial version is luminescent only when the crown, etc. is pushed, or does the entire dial light up on its own in the dark?
I believe it is an automatic affect based on their product page description: (at the bottom)
It is glow in the dark plastic. It charges up in the light and slowly gives off its light in the dark. Mine will still show a bit of glow in the morning after a long night, but of course it's brightest right after leaving a lit area.
How long does the lume last?
Swiss Superluminova probably most of the night.
I have a DX3 field. Mine lasts a few hours, not quite the whole night, but pretty close. I went camping and it was cold so I woke up a few times during the night. It was readable from when I put a flash light on it for about 15 seconds at 10:30pm until just before 4am.
I've owned two Bertucci's, both were tough as nails and perfect beaters. The only complaint I have is their U.S. repairs / claims arm is a PAIN in the ass to get in touch with. But, once you do, it's all good.
I've got a couple of Bertucci's that I've had for a few years; one of their titanium case models, and this model (DX3) currently offered on MD. These are my weekend beaters..... hiking, hunting, fishing, etc. The resin case is very lightweight, but takes a beating. Comfortable, accurate, tough as nails, and I think very good looking. If you want a dependable field beater, you be hard pressed to do better IMHO.

Not loud, but there is an audible tick if you hold the watch near your ear. At arms length, I can't hear it in a very quiet room. It's not obnoxious at all, but it is there.
Thank you for the detailed description.
Marc at Long Island Watch carries this brand and model, from Poly-carbonate to Titanium cases. He mentions the Bertucci in his affordable field watch video here.
It seems like everyone and their mom is renting out a garage and starting a watch brand.

I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news but every brand out there (exception to in house $$$ watches like Patek, AP, Rolex, GS, other "in house" movements) is built in china. China makes what? 98% of all watch parts in the world? 'Swiss Made' doesnt mean anything anymore. My Citizen eco drive counts better time and has better fit and finish than my 'Swiss Made' Victorinox.
Enough snooping around on this site and you can find several links that will say just about every watch has most their parts made in China. Even Swatch, which is impressive for a assembly line watch manufacturer to cut costs in parts.
Maybe this is a throw away kinda watch, like Swatch. But it looks pretty nice for $50. Unless you buy a Timex or a Seiko, you wont find anything cheaper. I find it unfair to compare this to the usual suspects of outsourced watch companies, MVMT, Daniel Wellington, 5th.
I won't lie, I'd buy one but I'm a 2 watch kinda man at the moment. But, I also think Timex is a good brand for it's money, so what do I know.
Timex is a fine brand nothing wrong with it. I mean even swatch (which stands for second watch) started out basically implying that their watches were meant to be a trendy item. They were meant to be disposable fashion items. They collaborated with pop culture icons and artists and created products that are actually becoming very collectible.
I mean they basically started the 'fashion watch' business which has devolved into DW, MVMT, MKs, and etc.
Timex has its own standing in the horological timeline.
