Got mine (GL0045, black face, conventional numerals) in the last drop and very pleased with it for the price. Not particularly elegant, but I got it to wear for activities where I prefer not to risk a better watch. Set it 4 days ago and, in normal wear since then, it’s running just +3 seconds over that time. Maybe I’m the lucky one.
We’ll see how it holds up. But happy so far.
Nope.
Nope What?
Looks nice but 44mm... nope

I'm not but so far im used to and happy with smaller watches.
Personal preference? The biggest size watch I’ve dabbled into so far is a 43.5mm, and I still feel it’s much too large, wrist size has a huge influence on that, too.
The one with half-Roman, half-Arabic numerals should be renamed Incongruous.

California Dial, and its a tough aesthetic for some to like
StainlessOnly
I agree, and I live in California ;-)
I see Invicta already fucked up the Incursore. I guess I should keep my Glycine Incursore Big Date with the ETA 2896.
CaptainBackfat
Care to elaborate?

Cheesy applied (and redesigned) Glycine wings logo, blacked out hands/markers. Just a worse looking dial in general. It's like Invicta just had to cheapen the watch with their remaining cases.
Great looking watch however one thing it is owned by Invicta now. I know the quality will be same but the brand name have to improve

DW is a lousy company that rips off rich bloated white people with satirical "fashion" watches. Although the DW founder is a genius when it comes to marketing, using Instagram to push his product, it's a clear reflection of just how absurd and arrogant the fashion industry has devolved. DW watches are bad, just cheap and tacky and all the watches are exactly the same.
Coining phrases such as "affordable luxury" (which is an oxymoron), and "cutting out the middleman" when they most definitely ARE the middleman, and praying on the gullibility and genuine ignorance of the average non watch owner; The fact that all their watches are absolutely the same as each other is comical, then they have the audacity to claim themselves as unique! All this further points out how fundamentally broken the average consumer's understanding of quality is.
In short, it's a Walmart $5 brand watch that's sold for $180 because Americans are idiots and will buy anything. In truth, DW watches are cheap, Chinese low quality, simple movement, spray painted watches that are the exact same as you may find in the dollar store. Stay away from the hype, it's a joke and a huge ripoff. Or go ahead and get one, and go to a modern art gallery with the rest of the DW,MVMT,5th watch owners and marvel at an exhibit of a trash can.

Well stated
At this price, these would seem to validate the rumor that Glycine makes some of their stuff in China and only supplies Swiss-made rotors in order to meet the 60 percent Swiss Made standard.

The effect of the 2017 is hard to determine for people outside of the Swiss watch industry. Publicly the watch industry is portraying it as toughening of standards, but here is some indication that high-end watchmakers think that they were bamboozled, by the majority of the industry that wants to make watches in China.
The percentage was raised from 50 percent to 60 percent and was applied not only to the movement, but also to the cased movement, which would discourage the used of Chinese cases, since to compensate, the movement would need to have more Swiss value. But at the same time the law allowed R&D and certification costs to be added to the value of the watch. How much are these? Is certification only for things like chronometers or for any watch? And R&D seems especially vulnerable to abuse.
Also, large watches like Glycine's Combat Sub Aquarius do not fall within the definition of a watch at all under the law due to a thickness exceeding 14 mm. This would mean, for instance, that the Oris men's depth gauge diver watches recently dropped here do not have to comply with the law. I don't know if this means that such watches can use SWISS MADE at will, without complying with the law's standards, but both the Glycine and the Oris do say SWISS MADE on the dial.
Cloaca
Did you mean to say chronographs, or Chronometers?
What is the ilummination color in black and white version?

This article says it's not a manual winding watch. Does that mean it does not hand wind? Aren't all 2824 based movements hacking and hand winding, in addition to automatic?
HadoKing
I can certainly handwind this watch and keeps pretty good time. 1 out of 3 Glycine I tried works . Airman DC-4 was defective on arrival. Fortunately,, I am getting warranty service but I won't see it until next 2-3 weeks of time...
No bracelet version?!! I'd be in if there were a bracelet version.
That mix of stick markers and Arabic and Roman numerals makes my eyes hurt. The one with Arabic and stick markings is tempting, but far too big for the type of watch it is. Seems like a good price for a good hacking movement, good WR and sapphire crystal though.
I'm just not a fan of the dial design, "California" I think.........
Good offering though!
SpiritOne
There are non-California options for each color.
Pretty good price, especially since it includes the warranty. Jomashop has it now for $300.
Does anyone know how the lume is on this watch do the numbers and indices glow As well as the hands?
dkokennen
The lume is not particularly good on my incursore
Too many overly large watches...the Massdrop story.
thebrowncoat
I agree. Looking for 38mm - 40mm
CaptainSteubing
36mm and 37mm as well
Good watch for good price) But I wait for my combat sub))
dm-ua
Go to watchgooroo and try to buy one w/ the make an offer option for $270-300. It's what Massdrop offers it for (through the same seller I believe) anyways.
44mm? Wow... If this watch were to be around the 36-38 it would have been great. But 44 is just tasteless to me.

"The end" - Lol, who are you, Tim Gunn? I have an 8 inch wrist and wear everything from 44mm - which is by far the largest I would go and borders on questionable taste - to 38mm. A watch like this, with no external dive bezel, will wear large for a 44mm. Wearing an oversized watch often makes you look like someone with no taste who goes for flash and bathes in cologne before leaving the house.
NikoToscani
I said the end because i dont want to discuss further because it all depends on the wearer and who are you saying other people tasteless? Fashion police? And who gives a rat ass about what you wear, you can wear tiny watches all you want mate.
All of the specs indicate that the GL224 is a 25-jewel movement, but mine is marked "26 jewels". Weird.

It is sellita sw200
Pawelsz77
That’s a clone of the ETA 2824?
My watch has arrived with warranty. It's a great looking watch, much lighter than I expected and has a contemporary size and subtle aesthetic with the mid-century military styling that I was seeking. I'm very happy, it's always difficult buying without seeing he item.
How will I know when the watch actually gets shipped. Also, does MD usually send users tracking info for the shipments?
markubiler
You should get an email when the shipping label has been created.... I actually just got an email that my label had been created.
Couldn't help myself. Must. have. this. watch.
44mm will be perfect for my wrists. When I saw this watch (drop) I was praying for at least 43mm. I knew right away this was one drop NOT to miss at the price point. I'm genuinely thrilled. I tend to like somewhat unique but slightly understated watch styles....outdoorsy...and this appeals to me in spades.
ETA 2824-2 for $259.99 Tempting...
dustytrail
DO IT!
This looks so very nice, too bad I have far too many watches.
it-man
Can't have too many.
markubiler
Very true!!! Wish I had the $$ though, my wife is already having a fit.
I already have a Combat 7, but if I didn't, I'd definitely join this drop. The GL224 movement is outstanding. Out of the box, it was +2 sec/day on the watch winder, but when worn, it goes to 0spd. That's chronometer specs...
Asharus
I guess that, like Seiko movements, it depends on "the number" you get... The GL224 on my Glycine DC-4 sits somewhere between -5 seconds per day and -14 seconds per day, depending on how I wear it (on the desk typing, or walking most day, etc...) according to my WatchCheck Android app. As such it performs better than the 6R15 in my Seiko SBDC003 Blumo, but worst that the 6R15 in my Seiko SARB017 Alpinist.
Aleskb
I currently now have 2 GL224s both of which are +/- 2spd. I have a 2892 A2 elabore that’s around + 3 or 4 spd, and a 2824-2 that runs at +10. It’s on a dress watch that I don’t wear frequently at all so i don’t mind the gain.
Some of us have big arms and wrists and even 40 mm watches look too small. Kudos to Glycine for producing classy watches in 44 and even 46 mm.
Can anyone comment on what versions have luminous hands/numerals? I'm particularly interested in the GL0042. Datasheets on Glycine site seem to indicate all of these version are luminous, but hoping for confirmation. Thanks!

Wow. Nice to see direct support from glycine here. What's up after this one guys?
What is the colour for luminous hands/numerals in GL0042? Violet/Green?
I would buy the California dial version if this was 40mm but at 44 this style is way too large for my wrist. Was this an existing model or is this Invicta pushing their oversize agenda on what should be classic sized watches (aka S. Coifman). What's next, flamefusion?

Great reply. I do have a few vintage pieces in my collection but nothing under 36mm. I don't wear them very often because I thinkbthey look small even on my 6.75in wrist. My sweet spot is 40-42mm in a diver and 38-40 in a dress watch. This watch with a lack of bezel and large dial opening plays larger on the wrist then it's case size and just looks bigger than it is. This is just my opinion. It is a great looking watch though.
Omegaman68
Yes, the no-bezel thing is amazing. I have an 8" wrist, but I can wear a 35mm Nomo without issue. I actually own a few 36mm vintage watches that wear small, but I do not care. If I had your wrists, I would certainly wear high-end dress watches from the 1950's. The prices are insane. You can actually afford a Calatrava or similar. I have seen so many great little dress watches that I simply cannot wear. That said, I agree with your sizes (wearing a 38mm Presage "baby Grand Seiko" right now), but I think I simply prefer smaller watches on my wrist, save for pilot's watches. I own humongus pilot's watches, and love them.
Does anybody know lug-to-lug size? I am interested but 44mm dial looks too big for my tiny wrist
Thanks
littlequill
It should be 52mm L2L.
Too big... also Glycine is now part of Invincta which is big no no for me...

I know how you feel, I haven't bought a single Bugatti since VW purchased them. :)
Think about the CHILDREN! They tell you science is behind these so-called "vaccines," but if you really love your children, then you will engage in true acts of love, like female genital mutilation. People like you have sold out to "science" and "technology" when you should be bleeding your wife regularly so she does not succumb to the vapors.
Half Roman numerals... That's a joke right? They're not serious... Right? RIGHT?

I thought it was a really nice way to add a little intrigue to the design....
Nomos uses the converse dial design on some of its watches, let's call it the "Baja California dial."
