Finally I received it. For me the photos in the description are not the best. It shines in direct sunlight, during the night the lume is not too strong. The quadrant need light to be special. I take a photo indoor with different type of light, tomorrow I try to take another one with the sun.

any one interested in this drop? i want to give my out
yakitty
free?
Is the lug width also the strap width?
TraversKilroyCooperAlvirez
Yes.
Looks like pretty decent case finishing, good movement. I'm unfortunately turned off by chrono dials that cut off the numerals, which the Ambassador (and the Alpnach and similar Victorinox chronos) does in a big way. I'd also rather have a standard bezel, as I have near-zero practical use for a countdown bezel.

I agree totally, it'll be so much nicer if the numerals are not cut off, and also the chrono makes the watch so thick.
No stutter problem for me, it's OK for me

Good one, I think I might end up keeping mine anyway. TBO, the chance of me using the chrono is so tiny, I don't even know why I care about the chrono stutter.
Just got mine today, and sadly finding out that it suffers the infamous 7750 stutter problem. sign~ (exactly like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKm3QWPB2dY)

Beautiful watch, I'll see what massdrop customer service can do about it.

By cons, it's my first watch with a movement Valgranges or 7750, and actually when the wrist is moving, we hear quite like a ball that moves inside the case. We know like that that the rotor is not stuck !!! And I like it in black version, better than white especially at the level of different subdials. In addition, I always preferred the leather bracelets (even if we must change them after a while). I already have a Victorinox Quartz watch with steel bracelet and it weighs a dead donkey.
Got it but not sure if the hour markers/dots glow in the dark as listed...if they do, it is extremely faint and short lived...
injurylawyer
it does, very faintly, leave it under light for a good few minutes, then go to a dark room, you'll see, but really faint.
Yes, it came today also. I am very happy
Haven't receive mine. anyone keen to share some pic ?
It came today - very, VERY pleased. I was worried that it would be huge - it is not. It looks good on my wrist. Got some good quality heft to it. Well Done MassDrop, Well Done!!!
I kept checking back for the silver model to become available, but no such luck - oh well. The really crazy thing is we bought the watches for $300, and on Victorinox's website, the bracelet alone is $225, and the black leather strap on this watch is $200! I know that's MSRP, but holy smokes.
Would it be possible to have an earlier shipping date?

They shipped today (26 Oct) according to the email I just received.
titus1984
Mine sent yesterday!
I get it that some people were upset that the silver model went so fast, I went to buy one on day one but they were sold out. I kept checking the drop and one came available on day 3 and I jumped on it. I continued checking availability and on day 5 the silver model with braclet was available for 12 hours. So if something you want is sold out just keep checking I found that more often then not someone will drop out. Good luck to all.

Same experience and then one opened up and I grabbed it. Some have pre-drop jitters and change their minds. That means that the watch is now open for the taking. I guess while the drop is active that is a good thing because people have time to think about it even after pulling the trigger and if they don't want it, someone else will.

I got my silver dial bracelet just a few hours before the drop ended. Originally ordered the black a week before because the silver sold out. Checked back daily and low and behold, I got lucky on the last day.
Seriously, what the shit is this drop ? The Silver dial model was sold out after 60mins sales time top, The black model didnt get sold out and now massFLOP ended the drop 1 day and 6+ hours to early... DAFUQ ?!?

I will do that, and I will time it and check the time when I do it with the Brand New Victorinox Ambassador Automatic Chronograph Watch that I have coming in the mail......

You seem like a really pleasant chap......

They didn't end it early, they sold out...
Prefer the Bracelet with the dark face.
TallBrit
Its a shame they ended the drop 6+ hours before time, and its funny it hamppend after i afsked the buyer of massdrop why there is no resevation system on drops like this, could be they are making it as we speak *fingers crossed*
what is going on with this drop ? It said 7hours left of the drop 10minuts ago... first the silver dial model gets sold out after 45-60mins of drop time and now The drop has ended 6+ hours before time ?
@Vincent.H is it possible that more Silver Dial braclet models will be made availible for purchace ? Ive been trying for days to get in on this drop with the silver dial model, but its been sold out like an hour after the drop was made avalible, seriously it pretty bad that no information about this is given.

Can you tell me/us anything about when the next drop with this watch will be availible ? Because judging from the popularity of the silver model its pretty likly this will keep on happening and sine people will never get the chance to purchance this drop, because of sold out after roughly 45-60mins of sales time.. so will massdrop be making an resevation list for The next drop of this watch ? Or even better, why cant we order the watch now, just knowing that shipment time will be roughly around 8-10 of December :)? Its clear that some sort of resevation system is beeing needed with drops like this.
VinnieBoo
We're hoping to get another run up before holidays, but I can't make any promises. Stay tuned, hit that "request" button and you'll be hearing from us shortly.
Seriously what is this massdrop ? There has been ZERO chance or oppotunity to buy the Silver Dial braclet version of the watch since one hour into the drop... MAKE MORE AVALIBLE PLEASE!!
it feels like you Massdrop only have made 50copys of the silver dial braclet model avalible and 150 of the black dial model, what is up with that ?!?
I have been wanting the Valjoux 7750 movement, but the Valgranges A07.211 is practically the same thing (which is the movement in this watch). While doing a lot of looking for info on both movements, I found this one review on the Valgranges... http://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/victorinox-swiss-army-ssc-chrono-arrives-134470.html It is the silver/white, which is currently unavailable here, but the black is the same watch (and the one I prefer).
@MassDrop would it be possible to make more Silver dial bracelet models avalible ?
Hello All. Looking at the discussion, there appears to be a lot of speculation about whether there is a warranty provided on these watches from the vendor, manufacturer, whether only in the US or abroad...would someone from Massdrop PLEASE respond officially so we have word one way or the other as to this question...most watches I see sold on this platform do come with one. I read that Massdrop also has a policy on DOA merchandize. Again, Massdrop, please give us an official answer...we are anxious as many of us have either joined the drop or are contemplating same. Thank you.

according to my interactions with MD support ... there is absolutely no warranty unless the drop page explicitly states that there is a warranty... there is no warranty.
There is no warranty!
The Black is the best by far IMHO; I'd just prefer it with a bracelet, or better, a black bracelet.

Yes, this is a good picture and shows more what it will actually look like than the watch company's photos.
Exactly, I had already spent way too much on watches this year, but couldn't pass on this one! Enjoy the watch!
I got the black version thinking I would just purchase the bracelet separate, but the darn bracelet retails for $240 and can be found for $170. That's over half the price of the white version, too bad it sold out so quickly.
the more I look at it, the black one looks good as well. torn between the 2.
If you keep checking, sometimes someone drops out before the end of the drop and that bracelet version will free up as it did for me this evening.
Could we get some more white version of the watch ? I wanna join the drop and buy the White dial version, but it says its sold out ? And it also says its only 6.35$ for handling and shipping, the watch will 110% sure without a doubt get picked up in the Danish customs and i will get billed 25% of purchace if i want the watch, i.e i have to fork over another 50$ in order for me just to recive the watch, and if i dont pay that amount it will get destroyed by the custoums here in Denmark, so could you PLEASE make it so we get the option to pay the 12,5% import taxes right from the order is made ? Its VERY wierd that, that option isnt there on this one drop.. :-/
can we have more units for the bracelet model?

I guess that this drop is the last time we are gonna se this watch get sold by MD as it is that the watch has been stopped in its production, my guess is that it was the vendors last Stock quantity, so no i seriously doubt it, although i will join the drop if the white dial braclet model comes up for grabs again :-)
McPickle
folks..i think some guy dropped out and I managed to switch to the bracelet option. Do try to switching your option, you never know when it becomes available!
Does it include warranty? it´s the warranty international? I´m about to get it from spain
I'm dying to be in on this, but I stay in India. Is there anyone here who can shed some clarity on how it will be shipped? The shipping charge is a nominal $10, and I'm a bit wary of customs not letting the watch through.
