Where's the price?

Received mine - 25 jewels rather than 21. Inaccurate description once again.
anyone have a 20mm strap on this? interested to see how bad the gap is between the lugs.
Will the hands on these actually line up the way they're supposed to?
i need the combat 6 return not this one...
the photo shows a black dial w green nato, but I’m only seeing white/Creme dial for purchase
i'm disappointed, i bought it on the last drop at 650$ ... :o(

That is wishful thinking. The only issue here is Massdrop claiming this model is exclusive to them when it clearly isn't. That is a big WTF.
Glycine is flooding the market compared to a year ago. It's great because it's what we asked for.
I bought this limited edition watch 3 months ago but it was stated that it was a limited edition on the page and the back is numbered. I got 05/100 and mine has 25 jewels not 21 has stated here. It is a Sellita movement but no problem with that they are just as good as ETA and Swiss made. If this one has no limited edition number stamped on the back and has only 21 jewels I am not bothered that I paid a bit extra 3 months ago. Watch prices rarely stay the same and one can expect a different price just before Christmas

A response with no info. There seems to be a pattern recently where MD literally "drops" products - never a response to any of the questions, concerns, or requests for clarification.

You’ve hit the nail on the head! It’s definitely the same watch, though. The GMT is an error in the checkout drop box. It’s a purist.
The only purchase option is a "GMT", which isn't described in the overview or with any pictures. Which watch is in this drop?

GMT is only mentioned when you go to check out/join the drop. I want a purist, is that's what's being offered in this drop?
JCruk
The model reference is GL0157. Here is the official Glycine web link https://glycine-watch.ch/collection/airman/ Just scroll down a bit to find the official specs. It's a three handed, dual time, 24 hour movement purist.

So this Massdrop exclusive Limited Edition is now cheaper on the second drop than the first ?? Thanks for making the early buyers feel pretty stupid...

Glycine is going down with prices day by day. Invicta strategy. What was the first drop price?
AdamKpowal
649.99$ plus s & t Also, the drop doesn't mention it's a LE, nor a MD exclusive. The first drop did and even then, before the first drop ended two sellers on ebay had the model for sale (albeit, at a ridiculously inflated price). This alone discredited the claim of it being MD exclusive. Now that the price changes, what else can we trust from either MD or Glycine ? I love Glycine watches and appreciate MD but there has to be a minimum of sense of rigour. What do you think people who hopped up at 649.99 will think when they see the second drop price, and if the trend continues, even a third even lowered price ? They feel like they've been had. Which business in its right mind wants that for their loyal customers, ones that early adopted a LE, own several models, would probably plan to buy more, etc.
(Edited)
The product number GL0157 refers to a 24 hour purist model and that seems accurately reflected in the product photos as well. However, then the specs list a GMT hand which clearly should not be present on this watch (and is not in the photos). Can somebody in charge at Massdrop please correct this and confirm that this is a purist 24 hour model on sale?

I've got the DC-4 in a 4 handed GMT version and I wear that one alot more than my Airman '53 SE. It takes a few hours to get used to the 24 hr dial if you rotate watches every week or so. BTW, the SE is not much of an Special Edition anymore, aside from the 600 serial numbers, now that this watch as been released.
just scroll down. massdrop just re-used an old drop where they were only selling the GMT hand versions. probably the price matched their already made drop down menu as "GMT" so they just kept it.
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.
Junjun
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
soundsense
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.
Mito125
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.
wlhughes
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.
wlhughes
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??
