I was going to join and buy one for my wife, but the black is sold out already and I just got the email. Don't like the white. Lost sale, Massdrop.
Love the design, but acrylic? On a watch at this price? I've heard a benefit is that scratches are easily buffed out, but I'd still rather have sapphire on a watch I'm spending hundreds on. I'm certainly no expert though, maybe someone else has a different perspective?

This plexiglass vs sapphire has been discussed at nauseam. Sapphire is not expensive. $100 Orient watches even have them. Using Plexiglass is a conscious decision made by the manufacturer in order to properly represent the aesthetics of a domed top as a tribute to the design language of Max Bill, the Bauhaus architect. Sapphire crystal cannot achieve the same domed effect that is needed for this watch. Even their Chronograph automatic of this watch, which is quadruple this price, still has plexiglass.

Lassetjus: Thank you. I was going to write the same thing, but you said it better. I would add that I've never actually scratched a watch crystal, except on a tool watch that I was wearing while laying bricks. If you''l be laying bricks, you'll want to take this watch off. And that sapphire has disadvantages too. It's not as transparent as glass, and tends to unpleasant reflections, unless expensive anti-reflection coatings are applied. And then there's a color cast. The whole "I've got to have sapphire" meme is a delusion.
Does anyone else feel that MassDrop keeps pushing obscure watch brands on us, (such as Junghans, Glycine and Orient) while acting that they are perfectly mainstream names? I own several watches and confess I had never heard of these until MassDrop. I'm not saying they are not nice, (and am not trying to be offensive) and I'm open to exploring other brands, but these seem rather random and possibly tailor made for this audience. Any thoughts on this?

And ironically Invicta (which I can't stand), recently bought Glycine in 2016 (seems like a real shame).

Invicta has made lots of money selling watches at Neiman-Marcus, and Glycine was a small, quality company. Invicta may have hoped that the purchase would make their brand seem classier, not that that matters.
Anyone knows how much the watch went for?

Amazon says $495, Can't tell whether it's gray-market or authorized.
Like the watch, but that lug width though... It will be challenging to find straps that are compatible with that lug size
