I joined the drop, love Glycine Airman line, own another one and can't be happier with the quality, precision and design that has enough vintage/historical flare that carries new generations of watches into the future. This particular model is wrapped up in a perfect size (40mm) for me (7-1/4" wrist), with subtle, yet commanding presence. 200m WR brings even more value as it becomes more versatile to use in every day life.
I have one question in regard to shipping as I live in Canada and we are facing a postal strike. Is it possible to pay extra for courier service and exclude Canada Post from a delivery?
Thanks, Alex

What is the value declared on packed once shipped? I am in China and I am a bit hesitant, I can import about 900usd without tax. But once above I may pay 60% of declared value and obviously 60% of MSRP is too much for me.
Very nice watch, but at 40mm it's too small for me at 6'4" and 7.75" wrists. Not sure how I would handle the double twelve logo either, seems to cheapen it. I'll certainly keep my eye out for larger case size Glycine drops. Thanks for the drop though.
Do the white dial versions have the old style Glycine logo (outlined crown) as shown on the main page or the new style logo (solid winged crown) as shown in the photos in the selection box?
The Double Twelve and the fact that it's 40mm and not 42mm as I have large wrists. Have to pass.

Same here. The 'Double Twelve' inscription is putting me off and I also have larger wrists, and I am 6'5 ft. My Combat Sub at 42 mil is the minimum size I can pull off without looking like I'm wearing a boy's watch... Too bad because I really liked the design, particularly the red one.

Agreed Woody why do companies do that Citizen also comes to mind. It just ruins the watch thats what the back is for.
I really don’t like the font that says “DOUBLE TWELVE.”
It really looks like it should say “7-ELEVEN.” Thats what the font reminds me of.
I’d prefer a less in your face, more subtle font right there.
Does the double twelve blue version has hand winding and hacking?
swaps
Yes.
Looking at the logo at 12 o'clock these look like pre Invicta stock. Probably the last chance to get these but I already own the later double twelve so I'll give this one a miss.

No, they've just adopted the old logo for certain models.
I received my black dial version 4 days ( came early while on holiday) I am happy with watch but two things have irritated me. The watch was advertised as a 25 jewel model which would be a ETA 2824 base movement. The watch I received is a 26 jewel movement which indicates a Sellita movement. The movements are similar but I just think it is dishonest to advertise a 25 jewel movement and send a 26 jewel other brand movement.
The other irritation was when I opened the box the watch was not attached to the cushion but left to shake around in the box during shipping
40mm, 12mm thick is perfect size for me, but 50mm lug-to-lug? Can someone recommend sub-500$ alternative with lug-to-lug ~46-48mm? Perhaps other Airman model?
Vonsoo
The 39mm Airman 18 was ~47mm long, but there's been no word of it being resurrected. (Edit: but there it is!)
There were recent hints of a possible Airman No.1 revival. That was 36mm with ~46mm lugs.
It's a nice watch, but if they put 1-24 on the bezel and write 20ATM instead of DOUBLE TWELVE, I would buy without hesitation.
Tell Glycine to make my recommend changes, then it will sell like hotcakes.

If I have to explain it, then you need to troll somewhere else

Ok, so I ask you what function would a 1-24 bezel on a 12 hour watch serve other than cosmetic because I really couldn't think of any and your answer is basically "I don't want to explain it" then you call me a troll. Looks like we're having a great discussion here.
Really like the look and design of this Glycine, but that 50mm lug to lug is too big for my tiny wrist, lug is going to over hang.
Does anyone have a good photo of the red one? I seen multiple pictures online and they all look like different shades of red.

Definitely a lighter shade of red there almost pink. I have smaller wrist than you at like 6.3~ how do you feel about the size and fit?
Delo5
Width is perfect, no over hang length wise. The lugs taper down so the watch conforms to the wrist. Paired with the mesh this is actually one of my more comfortable pieces to wear.
With so many recent Glycine drops, hope the Airman 18 is next.
Emblazoning DOUBLE TWELVE on the dial is ludicrous, ruins the watch and makes it look like a $5 watch from Toys-R-Us

I went for the black dial version which is more neutral and in keeping with pilot type watch
Mbot
Yup, reminds me of those cheap watches you get after completing 5 years of service in a company.
I will go for the black dial. The blue graduated dial is nice but the red double twelve written on the front detracts from the blue gradated dial or the none gradated blue dial. This is just a personal preference probably because I like the more formal type watch.
I have Glycine Sub Combat and really happy with that watch
Does this model replace the World Traveler? Or is it an older model? is it really 40mm or 42mm case diameter of the WT?

There are plenty on eBay.. I was ready to pull the trigger on one until I saw the notice for this drop. Would prefer the World Traveler as I don't like the red 12 12 on the dial. Also, I like the 42mm case better. It's not so significant not to take advantage of this offer.

World Timer. Sorry not World Travelor which is yet another model. Looks better than the 12 12 on the dial. IMO.
The serial numbers are still messed up when i try to Google the watches and frankly the pictures on the selection page do not correspond with those on the overview page. Wouldn't want to buy the wrong watch!

GLO235 does have a dark stitching..
The images now reflect the correct models.
The numbers on the bezel should have been 1-24.
Then it would have had all three numeric categories 1-12 / 5-60 / 1-24
Why did Glycine make such a silly mistake?😩
I would have bouught it

The erroneous 42mm (new version), was initially tempting, but the now corrected (older version) 40mm seems less so.
Photo's seem to have been corrected. I really like the updated look of these double twelves, featuring a return of the classic bezel and logo. Tempted.
Hello Everyone: we are sorry for the wrong images and descriptions, all correct information was updated by Massdrop. These are the older style double twelve 40mm watches with the original Glycine crown style logo. Thanks
Glycine-USA
hello, when the GL0057 come back on massdrop, i missing the last drop because i waiting my 1953LE ;o)
Is there please somebody from Massdrop who can clear the situation.
Geez, what is the difference between the gl0234 and the gl0235?

Sorry about this, the correct image is now updated.
It's up to Massdrop and the vendor how they want to handle this, but as has been noted, there is a lot of confusion as to what watch is actually being sold! The pictures of the watches available illustrate the original Double 12 (of which I own the silver dial one and love). HOWEVER, Glycine doesn't make it quite the same anymore, with a different bezel and various other details. The current Double 12 is also 42mm while this original depicted in the photos is a 40mm watch. And finally, the banner size image is a Base 22, a completely different watch!

Only trust the reference numbers. This drop is for the 3938 model, no matter the pictures and specs.
Gamera
Hello Sorry for the confusion these are the older style double twelve 40mm. All the information and images are now updated.
Can someone confirm if this is 40 or 42mm variant? This looks like the old version which were 40 mm but specs says 42mm
Delo5
40mm, sorry about this, all correct information is now updated
So why this one is 50 USD more expensive as last one ?

Sorry this is now fixed
The previous Double Twelve drop was on November 2017, various 3955 ( 42mm ) were offered for $ 399.99. The drop page is available here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/51343
Since my previous picture was not glorious ( the flash was accentuating the fading blue dial ) here is a better one.

I'd join if the drop had the same model as yours (the old model)
These photos are not of a double twelve.

The photos below are but you’re right, the main photo is not.
