This drop looks like it's going over like a lead balloon. For 479.99, just can't get into it myself. I'd go for another Glycine Combat Sub in Stainless with the white dial!
Everytime I see a "homage" watch like this, I feel like the brand is using a loudspeaker to shout at me, "I HAVE NO SELF RESPECT!"

So I'm confused. Specs clearly state bronze case but comments state bronze plated steel. Which is correct?

Interesting. Thanks for the information

It is bronze plated steel. Thank you for pointing this out, I'll fix the specifications now.
someone please tell me the current promo code for Creation Watches... bitte
Is this a better deal or the Glycine if I'm looking for a bronze watch? I already ordered the Glycine, but I'm curious about the two. How do the materials and movements compare?
Cheaper than Vostok bronze with Seiko auto movement!
Bronze coat won't patina! It will corrode or rust.
I don’t understand what would make anyone think this is not sold bronze

Because if you look at other sites it plainly says the case is coated stainless steel

Okay thanks just doesn’t make sense to me I guess once again massdrop gave an inaccurate description
Boy, if that isn't derivative AF...

That's EXACTLY the word I was thinking of! I mean "homage" is one way people justify buying a copycat, but man, this thing is derivative af. I'm surprised it's not a Steinhart LOL No thanks to faux patina. I don't buy my jeans looking worn out already, so same thing with my watches. If there's patina on my watches, it's because I caused it through normal wear and tear!
This shit is “bronze-toned” stainless steel. What the fu<k is that? It’s like saying this watch had a spray-on tan. Think I’ll stay away from this one.

considering you can get a borealis portus cale watchmark limited version with genuine bronze for $100 less. I just don't get the plated finish decision.

And having owned two Borealis, I can say they make solid watches for a boutique maker. It’s good to be informed.
Compared to my Deep Blue Bronze, this is not bang for buck...

Tritium bronze with green dial looks beautiful... Would have loved a GMT version... My dream spec.. Bronze, green dial, tririum gmt watch 😊

I got the DayNight Bronze with brown dial, green lume. Works too well on my watch with patina!
Whenever a company discounts their "premium" watches by thousands of dollars, that's a sure sign to stay away. Let's be honest, there is no way the actual price for this watch is $2500 when they are selling it for $509
Unwisefool
I dont think "stay away" is an appropriate response to a highly discounted watch. You can get an Omega PO for ~3K below the MSRP of $7700 in the grey market, would you still pass the same judgement? For a luxury watch brand, discounts can damage its name/prestige, making it harder to sell its watches at MSRP. Although most Swiss watch brands, such as LVMH, Richemont, Swatch etc, wont admit to it, they, however, tacitly work with grey market dealers, in order to increase sales and secure some leverage over grey market dealers. This strategy of discounted grey market products can have some benefits,: Not only does this strategy push products that otherwise would not sell, when demand falls, to price conscious buyers, but also benefits with free brand visibility, for example this Revue Thommen sale......hell, I never knew this brand existed until its first drop on MD.

Their website doesn't even work anymore. If I'm not mistaken, they were bought by another company a few years back and the manufacturing was changed. Can anyone confirm these are actually bronze and not plated? If you want a good quality bronze watch for roughly the same price, check out helberg/h20 watches
42mm is not XL. IMHO.
Not bronze... Bronze plated.

Gemnation sells them. Listed there as bronze plated, they also have a gunmetal plated edition.
VidarS
The one Gemnation lists as "gunmetal" is patinated bronze, so I'm not sure they're the authority on this. Bronze is easier and cheaper to machine and there'd be little incentive to plate stainless from a cost perspective. I bought an almost identical watch (sans date) from Steinhart for about this price. It's unfortunate that Massdrop didn't include a photo of the back, which might have provided additional details. Grovana used to have the licence for this brand but I don't believe they still do and I'm not sure who makes them now. I've also contacted Gemnation to see if they can confirm their description.
