The web site and every email said “ 24 hour dial Vintage Airman” but every picture was the “12 hour DC-4 Airman”. A bit confusing. I really wanted the DC-4. Support confirmed it was the DC-4 and so it was. Love it!

Hey Guys, Im in Australia and will be getting my Airman most likely tomorrow according to UPS. Has anyone recieved their drop yet? Thoughts & comments etc?
I noticed there where issues with the hands aligning on previous drops hoping this has been fixed prior to our drop.

Recieved mine - very happy with it - no issues re hands aliging etc all tags and waranty/ instruction manual attached.
I have been thinking about getting an airman, gonna have to pass, not satisfied with MDs explanation here. Can't be confident in what I'd be getting

copy that jm, i did order, and got 1 pic of the sister watch and the receipt another picture. then in trying to clear it up with a deeper look at their website found a couple of pictures of the same, 24 hour watch, with incorrect numbers for both pic but the same watch,
, making me feel a little weak kneed about md. i seriously don't know what watch is going to show up.
I am relatively new to the massdrop community and just want to make sure I am understanding the current situation with this watch. the description is for a different glycine watch that was previously sold on massdrop? massdrop did not make an effort to change the description of the pictured watch to accurately describe the watch? its sort of confusing

The description has been since updated and, while brief, looks accurate but I'm worried about the model numbers per my post below. Given MDs often brief descriptions and economical photos, I usually try and look products up elsewhere before pulling the trigger here. Not being able to find GL0218 anywhere else on the web is concerning.
Now on jomashop for 550 usd!!!

I think that is a different model as GL0217 it still shows higher to me and GL0218 does not appear to exist anywhere else besides Massdrop.

Bull Shit 725 usd on Jomashop
It is hard to tell from the photos what the difference between the GL0217 and GL0218 models are. The obvious difference is the strap color, but the GL0218 appears to have darker hands. Is that correct or is it just a reflection in that one photo?
I cannot find the GL0218 mentioned online anywhere. Unless this is a Massdrop exclusive, the only model I can find that is similar is 3904.19H24/66.TB9 but that has a 24h dial instead of the shown 12 hour one. Can someone please verify the photos are accurate and mention any differences between the offered models?

For those looking at this drop, it looks like the watch with the black strap is GL0071
Sorry for all the confusion with the specs here, guys. We had used this same page for the GL0157 a while back and I didn't catch the copy references to that specific model.
This drop is for the GL0217 & GL0218 models.
Seeing the comments and flagged. Will get this sorted out. Thanks everyone.
Fuck you, Massdrop. This drop is deception. You should be sued. Put up the correct fucking photos or description.

Apologies for the confusion here, I didn't catch that the copy was from the previous run of this drop.

The copy of what?
You still haven't fixed it!
I have always had good luck with my Massdrop purchases (including all of my Glycine purchases) but I have to admit, the copy describing this drop really puts a damper on their credibility. It almost looks like someone selected the copy from the GL0157/58 ‘53 Vintage drop several weeks back and plugged it into this watch a GL0217/18. Makes you wonder whitch watch you are getting.... so is it the wrong picture or the wrong description. Gotta believe it’s an honest mistake but whoever is doing the copy (or picture layout) needs to wake up and smell the roses. I’ll wait till they figure out which watch they are offering.

Yep that’s what it looks like they did. if you read the specs you will see it’s for the GL0217/218 and the pics show a GL0157/158.

I think they just grabbed a photo of another watch, and the model you select will be the one shipped.
Still a little...lazy, but I guess it works.
SO. Is this watch worth buying cause I can definitely vouch for the spinnaker watches.!!!!!!. OR It ain't worth 2 cents in Chinese money. . ?????
ISN'T IT TIME TO SPEND A FEW MINUTES MAKING SURE THE LISTINGS ARE CORRECT BEFORE POSTING?
That was all in caps because it needs attention. Please think about this. If you're trying to make a few thousand dollars in sales, it is important to be clear on what you are selling and that the description is correct. On virtually every Glycine listing, the listing is incorrect and then is gradually corrected. Why not spend a few minutes and get it right the first time and spare yourself all these comments and confusion?
You’d think the proof-reading would get better over time, not worse
Just did some googling and seems the dc-4 is being advertised as the 1953 on more than a few websites 😞
Hi MD, as others are pointing out, your description is almost certainly off. The photo is of a watch with a grey dial. You desribe a cream dial. There is no "noon" visible. Etc.
Could MD clear out what this offer is about? DC 4 or 1953? Will there be 24hrs purist available? Thank you
Picture is not of the actual one for sale. Disgusting deception
The GMT has the 12 hour hands with the 24 hour short hand? Is that correct? Was hoping for the non-GMT version if I am correct.
MD enough already with Glycine, Ball and Oris watches as there seems to be another offering every week! Could you put up a variety of semi to premium brands? How about bringing Breitling back?
Pics are of the DC-4 not the '53 So which watch is this drop actually for??
Well that's confusing. Description from the Vintage 1953, photos of the DC-4...
I was hoping for a busier-looking watch.
Description says cream dial, pics look black
I received this watch a couple of weeks ago. I live in Europe and the watch was shipped from Germany. I got a relatively high number, i.e.0592/1000. Overall I am very pleased with the watch.
My only compaint thus far is the action of the crown as several others have already pointed out. It doesn't feel sturdy, and is a bit flimsy/fragile at this price range.
I received my watch 3 days ago Really nice watch but takes a while to get used to the 24 hour dial. I have number 005/ 1000 wish it was 4 numbers lower. Be nice to know if anyone else has really low or high numbers. Only had the watch 3 days but the time keeping is excellent around +3 day whether on the wrist or crown up when I take it off at night. Hope it keeps to this time in the weeks to come

I ordered from this drop and received 027/1000.
No reports of misaligned hands so far. That's good news!
I received mine yesterday. I didn't have a watch with a date magnifier or a true 24 hr dial. I love those aspects, along with the great detail in the display case back. A negative is how delicate both crowns feel with adjusting the time. Both seem way more delicate/fragile than the a $700 watch should feel. Plenty to enjoy visually, but I'm leery of the craftsmanship. Only time will tell I guess.
I received mine today. A nice watch well made watch but with a 25 jewel Sellita SW330 movement but I had been informed of this by Glycine, Switzerland that it would be this movement. I am not that bothered because this is the future with ETA not selling its movements to third parties. Be nice though if Massdrop advertised the watch with the actual specs without having to find out from others users or the watch company who makes the watch.
Great that they shipped much earlier than expected. Except! They shipped on the 17th with Fedex. Arrived in Orlando the 23rd, the original scheduled day to arrive at my home. Arrival date changed to Wednesday the 25th. Checked this morning and now will arrive by Thursday. Orlando is ONE HOUR away from my home. FedEx delivered package to Tampa post office on the 24th. Apparently it takes two days to get it to my home. I could have walked to Orlando fedex facility and back in less time. Massdrop use another shipper. 9 days from New Jersey seems a bit long. Thanks for shipping earlier than expected.sfg57
Got a message from Massdrop telling me my watch is already shipped, a week before I expected. Great news, I'm really excited about this watch.
