Joined the drop for the non-limited edition stainless. Kinda reminds me of the speedmaster a little bit. Looking forward to receiving it. Kinda disappointed by MD’s email that it is not going to ship until Oct 26.
I have it from the last drop (Mars-500 version), and did quite a bit of testing, very nice movement. In 6 standard positions (dial up, dial down, 3h, 6h, 9h, 12h) results: 0, +6, -3. -7, -7, -3 all in sec/day, average on two days, total 2x6=12 days of testing against radio/atomic standard, with no adjustment, as received. Bit graph perfect in all positions, the amplitude 290-325 degrees depending on position, which id good. The bottom line: it is a nice watch performing close to COSC chronometer standard. The only so-so is the main spring - power reserve 40-45h, it is less than modern ETA 7750 (50+ hours), on the other hand the auto wind is better vs 7750. Very underrated, and strongly recommended. The look is also very nice.

Could you please share some wrist shots?

Sorry, it is with the rest of my collection (in the box), not on my wrist currently. But it looks good, both the watch, and the bracelet, which is good for my 8" wrist, if you want to know the length of the bracelet.
Ok so I've seen this watch advertised for years over different sites, the 520 unit limited edition Mars commemorative. My question is , is this a real limited edition or is it being reproduced every so often? I find it hard to believe that 520 units have not been sold in over 2 years

Thanks for the response. I hope that is the case.
A year and a half ago I saw this watch for sale, not on massdrop and I'm not even a watch guy. I was referring to the Mars limited edition with the orange highlights that has been advertised as a limited edition of 520 units. And the price was well below $1000
Any one who purchased one of these watches have pictures they could share? Especially on their wrists? Thanks in advance

Reference please. I researched this watch for quite some time, and though there isn't much info, everything I found says it's legit and of a good value.

Just what I've read about the brand on here, nothing more.
Wooow.
I recently purchased the GA8470.WBB for almost double the Massdrop price. I scoured the web and found only one available at an Indonesian retailer (I am in the US). The watch had stripped crown threads (they are reverse threaded) so the vendor sent the watch back to Fiyta for repair. Fiyta ended up sending a new watch in an old box even though this is a discontinued limited edition. I assume there are some shenanigans at play on the factory side (refurbished watches, previous rejects, etc) but I went ahead with the purchase.
It turned out to be a very high quality watch, and probably one that I will keep. Fit and finish are excellent, and the movement accurate and so far reliable. The bezel is terrible. It is very hard to turn and is not set for 60 or 120 clicks, Fortunately I do not rely on the bezel for anything. The rubber strap is great, and the hinge will allow this watch to wear nicely on smaller wrists. That being said, I think the strap is a little thin/narrow in proportion to the watch case, and the rubber edge next below the Fiyta hinge is not the cleanest.
At the Massdrop price this is a steal, however please be cautious. I think my transaction went smoothly because the retailer I used was an authorized Fiyta dealer and was able to get preferential treatment. I don't think we civilians will have the same success communicating with them and getting a timely repair. The bezel could be repaired under warranty, and while I'm sure the retailer will continue to provide excellent service, I do not consider it worth the time and shipping costs.
Dead watch arrived yesterday. Please help.

No updates from the support and engineering team after a day. Disappointed with the after sales service.

Toby from massdrop support replied yesterday, saying i need to write in to fiyta directly. Not very happy since it's defective from day 1 for me. Expected a replacement from them.
50m water resistant - 5bar 😂
Are these guys for real?

I'm sure you have an impressive collection of Invictas.
Is anyone willing to post their feedback/photos of this watch?
Thank you

Is the caseback the same as shown in the pictures?
jarcamp
No, its has a different picture. I think the caseback pictured is for the titanium Mars edition only.
will this ship before new year?
I am somewhat interested in the non-commemorative, so please let me know if you are selling. Thank you.

Me too
That's an awful lot for a Chinese watch, especially considering you can have a "Swiss made" chronograph with a genuine Valjoux 7750 movement for less (e.g. Hamilton, Bulova).

The 7754 is based on the 7750 but trades its weekday wheel for a GMT hand.
Search for Bulova's Accuswiss models on eBay. It's a discontinued line featuring either Valjoux 7750 or Selitta's equivalent chronograph. A lot of them go below $300. Not bad for a Swiss Made chrono watch.
I have a question for someone at FIYTA: With the design of the GA8370.WBW | Non-commemorative Edition of this watch there are small crater like imprints on the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock subdails. Are these imprints just decorative or do they represent certain locations on the moon (e.g. the Sea of Tranquility, etc.) or maybe somewhere else? Very curious to hear the answer-- thanks!
I've been waiting a long time for a good price on a space inspired FIYTA-- thanks Massdrop! Just was wondering if anyone has any details on the movement (which Shanghai model is it based on?) and/or can comment on their experiences with it? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
Just got mine in the mail, looks fantastic! But does anyone else's watch sounds like there's metal scrapping noises when you shake it, is this just who the moment sounds? I have a watch with an ETA7750, and it doesn't sound anything like it....
RetroInferno
Some watches have loud rotors regardless of quality. Hamilton Jazzmasters are notorious for it on watch forums. The Valjoux/ ETA7750 you mention isn't immune either, but it seems like you got a good one :)
Flypanam
Thanks for the reply. Turns out the screw holding the rotor down came lose and it was indeed scraping the back plate. But I opened the watch and screw it back down. Works great now!
Received mine yesterday. Very nice, big and heavy. The lugs are rounded on the wrist side, this adds to wearing comfort. Be careful, the screw down crown should be unscrewed clockwise...
Glassman1403
Yes, quite surprising at first time. I even did not know it had a srewed crown (not very intuitive for a 50m water resistance).
Absolutely love this watch. It is definitely big on my wrist, and quite thick. I am happy with that though - I've been looking for a watch with a bigger profile. The craftsmanship is pretty impeccable - everything about the watch and band is clean and very well put together. Plan to really enjoy this purchase!
What is the length of the bracelet? I need at least 8 inches (total).
The description page says " Note: At checkout, choose between the commemorative version and the non-commemorative version (- $170). This drop is limited to 30 units. " When I try to join the drop for the non-commemorative one the price reduction is only $150.00. Either the description or the order page is wrong... which is it?

Hi there, apologies for the confusion. The -$170 was a holdover from the last drop and has been fixed. Pricing overall has been renegotiated lower but the difference between the options is not as large.
What exactly is the point of a "Rotating tachymeter bezel". That seems pretty strange to me.
When Googling this watch I stumbled upon recent article which says that TAG Heuer will be official partner of Chinese 2020 mission to Mars. The article points that it could be the end of FIYTA cooperation with Space Agency. In this light I think it is quite ironic that this watch is Mars commemorative edition. Still I think it is very nice and I wonder if this is the Spacemaster model which were worn by Taikonauts during their missions into space
Seems kind of steep for a Chinese made watch.
Price dropped $100 from the last drop. It's a real MASS DROP.

Found some wristshot:

I think that's a photoshop, so the size might not be accurate for a average wrist.
sprk1
You may be right... now it looks like a photoshop to me as well
What is the weight of the titanium vs stainless versions?
What is the usage of the bezel for the GA8500 as there are no marks on it?
VictorL
There is no specific function for the bezel of GA8500.
