Well, I should have paid more attention to the negative reviews. The watch arrived today, and it is a disappointment. It feels worse than $80 Invicta. The -06 model came with military green leather band, even though on the pictures it looks dark blue, The face looks dark blue, so the band's and the face's colors clash. That is also a disappointment. This my worst drop yet, totally not worth the $$.

Mine came today, I got the Gold/Green and it's looks perfect. I completely disagree with your comment. However the bezel doesnt line up perfectly so that's a little annoying.
I'm sure it must be just a perspective thing, but I love how the bezel is way out of alignment on the main photo! Looks like it matches some of the reviews anyway, plus a lot of Seiko lower end divers as well
Some pretty terrible reviews on these things, made me cancel...
Does Massdrop accept Visa gift cards or gift cards alike?

WOW! I hope mine ends up looking like that!

lol i think you picked the wrong picture here. This is a CW
Massdrop: please state the colors (strap, dial, case) for each model offered.
It’s not always completely clear if, say a strap, is gray or mauve or some other similar color... or gold vs rose gold... one case looks like brass so the exact color isn’t clear. Thanks

Yes, I know... but we shouldn’t have to go to another web to know the details & differences of each mode.
They also state that 3 of the models are unique to massdrop, the 04 05 and 06 the last 3, although I cannot see a difference vs what's on their site
I'm in!
How are the 04 05 and 06 models different from what is sold directly from Spinnaker? They look the same to me, identical realy, strap color and all, what am I missing?
Even though it has not gone back to $130, still better than $150 it was offered at last time. Still takes a month after the drop end to ship... I guess it would make for early holiday present by the time it is received.
Is there something I can do to prevent cracking of the bezel as others have reported happening

Thanks
I ordered the 01 model but received the 02 model. Is there any way I could return the watch to get the one I wanted?
Man I really wanted to get this watch but it is too slow, gotta have 28k.
Funny I just came across this, as I am wearing mine I purchased from eBay a little while ago. I really like this watch, it is a tad bit tall for smaller wrists, but the quality is defi nitely there. I slapped on some black shark mesh and now I wear it regularly.

Hey! This finally dropped again. I got in on the drop last September. For the record... I really enjoy this watch. My only gripe is the lack of hacking seconds, but some people don’t mind that. It’s also a little chunky, but that’s neither here nor there I guess.

The watch itself is beautiful, and still looks out of the box new despite ~9 months of semi-regular (a few days a week) usage. I have it on an aftermarket steel strap with a black on black look.
Was $130 a few months back - 15% increase. Will wait for better deal that ships timely.
How about shipping the last Spinnaker MassDrop that ended April 16th and is already 2 weeks past the original expected ship date before offering another Spinnaker piece.
Got the watch for Christmas and have been wearing it nearly every day. I love the way it looks and feels. It has been holding up quite well to the wear and tear. I am seeing some de-lamination on the keeper loops but not that big a deal. At this price point, you can't really expect Hermes quality. Actually, given the price point, this watch is amazing. If it lasts a couple of years, I'd feel like I got my money's worth.
So the blue thing that provides the energy to the movement just fell off inside the case. I've used the watch perhaps twice a week for 6 months in an office exclusive environment. Would not recommend this watch in the slightest.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Since posting I have done a bit of research and I am fully capable of doing the repair myself, as I saw the screw through the case back. I just need to purchase the case opening tool at likely 1/8 the price of sending it to China for repairs. Being as I'm now an Alpinist fanboy I'm not massively concerned.

Great, glad I could help, just make sure and use a very small amount of pure silicone grease on the o-ring that you will find behind the caseback cover& do not over tighten it , just turn untill it seats then tighten a little more or you could destroy the integrity of the seal . I use a product called TRIDENT product#LP20 that is a 2 OZ tub should last a very long time ,it is used on diving equipment& great for watches ,look on youtube there are some good tutorials ,type waterproofing your watch! Buy a high quality case removal tool as the cheap ones can slip damaging your watch , also only swiss made screw drivers , as the Chinese steel is awefull ,Burgeon I believe is the brand and will last a life time.
Given the popularity of this watch, does anyone know when it will be available in the future? I’m new to massdrop
It just stopped working today. What can I do? Got it for only a week...
I just picked up :(

OH crap! That gives me second thoughts of this drop I just joined!

Mine arrived in perfect condition and despite having dropped it and banged it around a bunch in the past few months it still looks perfect.
Anyone have trouble with their's not keeping time?
Update - $29 to send to IWC, $69 to fix. I'm out man. The brown leather strap is de-laminating also after only a handful of wears. All in, it's not bad at 129, just don't bang it or expect it to take a moderate beating at all :D

I agree. Beautiful, just can't take the "beating" I apparently give my watches.
Mine just arrived today, and a day early at that! I have to say, I am very pleased with the look and quality. This is my first nice watch (automatic, more than $100), and I'm very impressed with the watch overall.
Just a few observations. The leather band is a bit thick and stiff, but it is already breaking in a bit an hour later. There is already a little creasing around where the strap buckles, but I expected that given the thickness of the band. I have not put the NATO strap on, but it feels of excellent quality. Thick and strong, yet very pliable. The watch is definitely tall, but not overwhelmingly so. It does not strike me as a big watch. I'm actually surprised by how small the watch is, at least on me.
The dial is very nicely designed. The finish on the middle of the hands is not quite as nice as the case, but that does not bother me. I can't remember if it is listed in the description, but the crystal is definitely domed. At least slightly domed, as I show in one of the pictures. The lume is excellent, and holds for a considerable length of time. At least to my experience...
My only gripe with the dial is that I think the text on the date window is a little small and looks cheaper than the rest of the watch, but again that does not bother me overly much. The movement seems nice so far. I can't say anything to accuracy yet, but it has not really dropped any seconds at the moment. The rotor is not as loud as some have described it. You can hear it, but only if the room is quiet and it is close to your head. At least that is the case with my watch. The display case back is nice, but not groundbreaking. There's honestly not a ton to see going on. If you're curious or like to be distracted, I guess it does give you something to look at.
Overall, I am very pleased with the watch. It has excellent build quality, and is definitely a step up from my previous watch. I can say that I am genuinely happy I got in on this drop! Now maybe I can get my hands on a Seiko turtle or alpinist one day lol.
A few pictures below...
