I joined the drop and ordered the Blue-GMT on mesh bracelet one. To my surprise I saw that Jomashop is running a sale on most these today.. for $550. Darn.

Who cares ?

Sellita has 4 more jewels than the eta. Why wouldn't you want that?

Hello, isnit the GMT or the purist? Thank you
Any one else received their Purist to find the handset is completely different? Also no coin included to adj the internal bezel. And a minor point but the dial on the gl0144 is a little darker blue than depicted

I did get a warranty card it was in a silver envelope jammed inside the lid of the box , stamped GSD Global Inc. I did also find the coin :) , how i missed it first time i don't know. Not sure what's going on with the hands, possibly as these are the new Sellita versions Massdrop have simply used old eta pics .

Thanks Chris. Found the warranty card in the outer box lid just like you said.
I bought the blue dial and blue strap GMT model. My other watches have hour hands that do a rotation every 12 hours and I was afraid that, if I bought the purist model, I would get confused. I really want this watch for travel, because of the extra time zones. Even when I flew in the Navy, my watch did a full rotation every 12 hours. It's a handsome watch and I'm glad they are using their old emblem. And I like the particular ETA movement that they use in this model.
Dears Is shipment tracking available on Massdrop?

Yep. I get it too. Seems that we have to wait a bit for DHL tracking system update

Afraid so, it'll probably be working once customs charges need to be paid lol :)
Are there any models that do a 24 hour sweep on the hour hand and the GMT hand? I get the impression that the purist models put the hour hand on the GMT sweep.
I don't see the point of a 12 hour sweep on a 24 hour dial, but it would be nice to track 3 time zones on 24 hour.

There's an extremely limited run of the Double 24 that seems to be the trick. But I don't think that's an option any time soon.
Intrepid
Yes the double 24 a rare bird indeed, pretty much impossible to find these sadly.
Will they all come with the old glycine logo?
Jaxon5
Hi, Yes, all SST models have the original crown style logo as seen in the images.
I am torn between the base22 and the sst12, somebody please send help😭

I got the sst12 pumpkin and i love it. It is my only true 24hr dial and sweep. Very fun and looks great.
Wish i could. Hopefully i can grab one on the next Base 22 drop :)
Just received my pumpkin purist gl0146 and it has the arrow hand! Original glycine logo beautiful watch very happy with it. Did other people that got theirs have the arrow hand or the straight hand?
So, the purist will only display two time zones, correct? The inner ring of 1-24 is fixed, and there is no fourth hand to indicate a third time zone on that ring.

That is how I understand it.

It does. I love that on my Base22 Purist. The GMT does not work for me.
Has anyone put a good quality Nato strap under the factory pins of the Glycine SST12, GL0075? There is a sharp 90 degree that allows for the pin-inserted leather strap under it, but I have been buggered trying to get the Nato under it... anyone? Bueller?
:)

Looks good tho!

You just have to work it thru and then grab the small piece you can get through and then pull, then repeat. I t all come down to how thick your NATO band is.
Whats the difference between the orange regular and orange purist except for the arrowhead not being on the purist?
rahulny
The purist hour hand rotates once every 24 hr, the GMT is regular 12 hr
Guys. This is not a 24 hour dial. This is the same layout that every watchmaker uses with a 24 hour gmt. Omega, rolex, Seiko. All have a model with a 24 hour bezel that is used with the gmt hand. . .
Back to this watch. The inner and outer bezels are 24 hour bezels. You do not use the hour and minute hand with these bezels. Use the gmt hand which rotates once every 24 hours.
ezcon1972
If you want a true 24 hour dial get the Purist model, hour hand rotates once every 24hrs unlike the GMT which is a normal twice in 24hrs. :)
Darn it! If this was available 2 days earlier....
Don't the purists usually have 'arrow' shaped hour hands?

The original SST had straight 'syringe' hands, as did the '06 release. Both were offered only in purist (24hr) form. The arrow style hand didn't show up until the '12 release, when the GMT option became available as well.
SnowSky
Mine does (bought this drop). Does that make it NOS?
Wow, purist pumkins and blue!
I have been using mine for a bit under two weeks now. It took some getting used to, and at the moment only have it set for one time zone. I got the white dial, with mesh bracelet and while I like it a lot it is or was not the easiest thing to read, as the luminous hash marks were for reading as a 12 hour dial, but are so faint in daylight as to be not seen.
I would probably choose the blue or pumpkin dial if I had to do it over, but think this one looks dressier.
Thanks MD for being there, i am so happy with this watch, it is amazing for the price you have got it for us :-)

Hey Guys, how many seconds daily your watch is late? I mean what is tolerable range for Glycine SST12. I had another one (also Glycine) and it has only few seconds of difference, but this one is getting a lot more.

Hi, mine is 7.7 sec a day faster checking the avrage of the last 10 days
These are great watches. Just glad I sold all of mine before they started showing up on MD at less than the used prices!
Got the pumpkin GMT in the last drop. Very good build quality for the price. Anyone know where i can get a glycine branded mesh bracelet? Thanks

Try iguanasell.com, in Madrid , Spain.
Good folks to deal with. They ship international UPS air. Most items I have ordered are delivered to me in rural E Texas within 3 days unless it gets hung up in a domestic UPS terminal here over a weekend or holiday.
Here is an ebay link to one

These are such a let down. If the watch has a 24 hour dial, it should have a 24 hour movement.

Get the purist, its 24hr movement
If you ever change your mind on that D24, look me up.
Is the 2nd crown for the inner bezel screwed down? or Just O ring seal? I see the spec as 20AM WR, just want to confirm.

Also, the inner bezel crown on the SST is an odd one; it's smooth, but with a slot in the side. I'm assuming the design is to prevent accidentally changing the 3rd time zone being tracked.
CaptainBackfat
The slotted crown is adjustable with a coin...or, if you got your's new, you should have gotten the little SST medallion with it that is to adjust the inner bezel... it's pretty cool too!
Just ordered the grey with black face. So torn on the color almost got the punkin one also. :)
Quick question: the leather bands - any idea of length? Larger wrists here and nothing worse than a leather band that is just barely long enough.
Thanks
I can’t even fathom buying this at the original price. Not that I’m buying it at the price it is now, but to have a thousand or so dollars that you can just throw at a watch blows my mind. I mean I’m a poor ass college student raised in a lower-middle class family, but still. That’s gas and food money right there, or textbook money come to think of it.

Is that the turtle? I've always liked the retro styling. I have the SKX007J1 myself. It's a staple!
lailoken
Um, it's Turtle-like. It's in the Recraft line I think. Picked it up a few months ago and put it on a Barton Elite black silicone band with a pumpkin colored backing to make the orange seconds hand pop a little. Originally came on a stainless bracelet. I also have a black leather band with orange stitching I just got that I like even better. Has a 4R36 movement (hacking/hand winding) that is running +2sec/day. Bruce Williams has a nice review of the Limited Edition version on his YouTube channel, I think that was the SRPC13 with a deep aqua blue dial and orange seconds hand. That's kinda what sold me on it. And yes, I too have an SKX007, SKXA35 (yellow dial), and SKX173 (American version of 007).
I would also go with the purist. The Pumpkin is a good value here, but the 43mm is to large for my wrist. At least they have all 24 hrs shown in Arabic numbers - having tick marks between even hours degrades the usability.
Yes more purist and I am in too!
On the gmt versions does the normal hour hand sweep at 12 or 24 hours? I know on others, the hours hand will have a 12 hour rotation. This one gives me pause since there are two 24 hour levels on the face.

The outer bezel rotates, and is controlled by the slotted stem at the 2 o'clock position. the hour and minute hand week at 12 hours, so you read normal time as per a 12 hour dial, just forget the numbers and think of it like a watch with only hash marks. The other long slender hand can be pointed to another time zone on the mid scale giving you the third time zone.
Not ever having used a watch like this it drove me crazy for a few days, but now it's second nature. As I am not planning on traveling soon I have it set just to my current time zone, making it easy to read.
The dial functions as a normal 12 hour watch. The inner and outer bezels are used with the gmt marker only which makes one cycle every 24 hours.
Where are the purists?
