If you want to wear it as your everyday/field watch, I recommend you wait for the combat 6 vintage, it have sapphire crystal top and a day window which makes it a better day to day companion

Just ordered one with the olive NATO strap. Would love to be able to purchase a black strap separately, as well.
This over a Hamilton KHAKI?

Unfortunately "no." I purchased this watch last year, and returned it shortly after receiving it. I liked the overall appearance of the watch with its no-date dial, the size was great (for my 7 1/4" wrist), and loved the hesalite crystal! The problems I had with the watch were as follows: It ran -18 seconds per day, the manual winding was not smooth, the green "NATO" strap on it had a STRONG chemical smell, and the date mechanism / wheel was still installed beneath the dial. I wanted to love the watch, but it just didn't meet my expectations, even for $300. This is not the case with all Glycine watches, as my Wife has a 36mm Combat 6 that is just lovey. I purchase the no-date version of the Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical (H69429931) earlier this year, and love it! It is the watch I wanted the Glycine to be. It has a ETA 2801.2 hand wound movement, is slightly smaller at 38mm, has a bead-blasted case, and has a sapphire crystal. It does cost a little more money. But, it is well worth it in my opinion!

Here's a wrist shot for you. The one thing I did have to replace on the Hamilton was the NATO that it came with, as it was just a little too short for my wrist.
I could not see this watch on the official Glycine site. Is this a superseded model?

This watch was previously discontinued. It has not been on the Glycine website for sometime.
Does invicta own massdrop ?
Watchfan73
LOL, nice joke xD
Invicta owns glycine now....
john-florio
But this is an old logo pre-invicta model,
Invicta owns glycine

So what?
I got this watch in a drop a year ago. The dial looks great but the crystal has cracked twice just in everyday use. Glycine wouldn’t cover under warranty; $150 to replace. I’d hold out for a sapphire Combat if you like it. (This particular watch cannot take a sapphire crystal due to the bezel design.)
ggrossman
thank you, was doing research on whether the crystal can be upgraded and this is the deal breaker. Will wait for these to drop to $200 lol
ggrossman
Nice looking watch, a shame that the crystal can't be upgraded to sapphire. As teioh3 noted, a deal-breaker. Thanks for the info.
Massdrop....another glycine ???
Watchfan73
Well, this one is the one to have, really versatile, the only 2 things i would improve is the strap stitching and a sapphire glass, everything else is amazing

You can wait for the Combat 6 Vintage to get the sapphire glass and a better strap :)
Can anyone tell me if this has a screw down crown?
Melliferous
It doesn't have screw down crown
Melliferous
No it doesn't, but it still has 100m wr
Beautuful watch, classic timeless design (imo). And it has both 1-12 & 13-24 denotations😃, BUT the dial is only 41mm and it has that shitty vintage Hesalite😩

Not irrelevant, because the name of the watch is combat 7 vintage, and vintage usually is under 42, I just pointed the fact, that if u want something bigger don't look for it in a watch with vintage in it's name

Ok daddy😩
Hand winding capable??
wonbul
yes
No sapphire? How much does it cost to put it after?
JorgeNegro
I have this watch. It is not possible to change to a sapphire or mineral glass crystal due to the bezel design.
Worst type of crystal ever.......
The watch is awesome, but too easy to scratch

Some polywatch might help.
Received mine today on the UK. Very happy with the watch from an initial assessment
Who is packing these? Watch upside down/loose in the box and protective film dislodged from watch face. Hoping there is no damage.

My airman 18 arrived like yours...
CBeeZ
I'm assuming it's the procedure when they're shipped by mail
It's been 8 days since the last update from package traking, destination Barcelona. Is this the usual international shipping time or something went wrong? Should i contact massdrop help centre?
Nextgengentry
Maybe it's stuck in customs
CBeeZ
Shit, i hope it's not 😂 i updated traking and it's already on my country, hope everithing is fine
Got mine today. Looks sharp, very glad the strap fit my wrist. Normally on the last hole, but I have two extra which is nice for a change.

I'm right at 8 inches +/- 1/16th (20.5 cm for the rest of the world)

Awesome. Cheers mate
Anyone knows which reference belongs to each one? I'm worried off buying the wrong one! (Help please Massdrop staff!!)
Nextgengentry
B2 is green nylon B9 is black nylon is this what your asking?
StainlessOnly
Yes!! Thank you! Usually when there's a couple references they attach the reff to each pic
What kind of shipping does massdrop use for shipping to australia? And is there any insurance option for shipping?
What exactly is the difference between the two models (3943.19AT.TB2 vs 3943.19AT.TB9)? Is it just the strap color?

The lume looks really different to me :S
Nextgengentry
Maybe green strap was out of the box prior to the photo shoot vs the black kept in the box? My only guess. But you're not alone in seeing a difference, I see it too.
looked like a timex weekender from thumbnail
Any idea how long shipping will take to Montreal? Will be leaving for overseas on the 30th of April and want to take this with me on my travels.
Although I can understand the concern of Invicta influence over Glycine, all indicators would point to Invicta being more interested in growing the brand instead of changing it. Glycine had a big problem with market penetration in its past, especially with regard to the Americas. With Invicta involved, it has a larger ability to project presence, and grow market share.
Additionally, it is most likely that IF Invicta plans any big changes, they will save it for Basel World next month, as to make a big splash.

Sad news for those of us that have normal size wrists and dont want to look like a rapper.
Omegaman68
Invicta have never been my wheel house, but they have made a name and image for themselves that's for sure (sometimes not for the better). I hope they don't mess up Glycine
Is the strap the only difference between the two models?

I think the lume is a different color?
Samhagen
I agree that in some of the pics it looks different which is why I asked. Can a massdrop rep comment?
Tempted but the lack of date is making me think twice. I have a Hamilton on my list and this may take its place.
Does anyone know if this one was manufactured by Glycine before they were bought out by Invicta? Also, it would have been nice to have date complication.

Hmmmm yeah I have the sane question - I bought the airman base 22 last year and to my surprise the logo was the new design and not the one shown on the MD watch picture. I thought it may have been changed after invicta had bought the company but this I guess is not true. I want this watch now but where is coming from? the old stock or new company?

Glycine boards were floating around new logo images as far as two years ago, though they didn't actually change until around a year ago or so. This was well before the Invicta announcement. That said though, it seems likely this is pre Invicta stock, but ultimately it's going to be pretty hard to determine. Probably keep your ears out for news at Basel next month for any earthshaking news (if any).
My view is you like it, you buy it. And kudos to you for grabbing one already.... nice looker!
Can someone double check the specs? I don't think this is 100m wr.
ezcon1972
Hello,
Caseback says 10atm, and most info online indicates 10atm for Combat 7. Why don't you think so?
StainlessOnly
I stand corrected. I have this model and love it. I thought it was 5 atm but just checked the cb and it is 10atm. Great watch!
How does this compare to a Hamilton khaki?
abaldan
I actually traded the hammy after I bought this. Both are comfy to wear but the Glycine has more of a vintage look because of the crystal. The triangle lume markers at each hour mark looks great too. And also the lume on the Glycine lasted longer than the hammy.
