Excellent movement and fairly nice case, even better when the price is considered.
I own a lot of watches (probably over a 100), and 4-5 Glycine models in that count. This one has a unique color scheme and an excellent movement and for the price its hard to be too nitpicky.. The case is not as nicely finished as I would have liked but again it was cheap relatively speaking.

Bene ma non benissimo.
Orologio esteticamente molto gradevole ed estremamente preciso. Non riesco a dare le cinque stelle a causa della generale impressione di essere un prodotto di non altissima qualità: il bracciale non ha le finiture che ci si aspettano da Glycine e la cassa ha angoli taglienti che arrivano ad irritare la pelle se viene indossato aderente al polso. Sebbene le avessi previste, le tasse di importazione in Italia sono veramente troppo alte. Ottimo il servizio offerto da Drop!

Pretty nice.
Pretty nice. A little disappointed with the quality of the band. Took the band off to replace it and I nearly cut my finger on the razor sharp edge touching the watch. The band needed to be cleaned thoroughly and would bind on itself until it was broken in a little. Other than that it keeps great time.

Perfectly executed collaboration between Drop + Glycine!!
I may still be on the honeymoon phase with my new watch, BUT it's such a great addition to ANY watch collection or beginner! As a reference, the watch's 42mm dial and 50mm lug to lug fits perfectly on my 6.75 inch (about 170mm) wrist.

Great watch, not an exceptional value - and mind the duty
I think the Rolex "Coke" is the best aluminum-bezelled GMT Master-II Rolex has ever made: the black and red colorway makes the most sense for what it is supposed to represent, and has the perfect amount of pop. When I saw Drop release these, erm, GMT Master-II "inspired" watches, I was definitely leaning towards the "Coffee" colorway over the "Soda" - adding on the faux patina present on the "Coffee", I decided to pull the trigger. The watch is very handsome in person (much better than in mock-ups) and is quite comfortable. It's exceptionally thin considering the off-the-shelf movement and 200m water resistance, which really helps with the comfort and prevents the watch from feeling top-heavy. The bracelet is indeed quite jangly and reminiscent of those classic Rolex bracelets of the pre-2000s. Maybe I'm being overly sunny with this assessment, but when paired with the faux patina and "Coke" bezel, the watch very much has a vintage Rolex feel to it (not that you'd ever mistake one for the other or anything). The bracelet and clasp are not particularly impressive, but they're not the death sentence the Drop comment section whingers and moaners make them out to be (God, this site can be exhausting on that front sometimes). The matte dial is slightly textured and is handsomely adorned with gilt writing, plus "GMT" written in the red of the bezel. The minute markers are the perfect size, the "non-Maxi" markers are clean and legible (the "Maxi dial" on the non-GMT version looks a little silly to me... and what the hell is the point of a 2-toned hour bezel? Do we really need to know when 30m are up?). I am partial to non-cyclops date windows, and feel this matched with the lack of a "Mercedes" hour hand (while still retaining the shape) really pulls together the rugged and utilitarian look the watch is going for. The 48-click bi-directional bezel is perfectly functional - a little stiff, lines up well, with a little bit of wiggle (but not too much). The movement's not nearly pretty enough to necessitate a display back, but half the time a watch has a display back only to be able to show your friends that it doesn't use batteries - mission accomplished? I would have preferred a tastefully engraved solid caseback like on many of the other Combat Subs, but that's just me. The watch itself loses a 5-10 seconds a day - not exceptional, but not the end of the world (I'd prefer it to run fast!). There is something very strange about this movement: the GMT hand is quickset, not the hour hand. That's very strange, and contrary to most other GMT watches with a quickset function. The idea is you set the GMT hand to your home timezone, and quickset the hour to your local time, but it's backwards here. I am convinced this is a straight-up mistake, or an oversight at best. If anyone has any information to the contrary (or explaining this decision), I'd love to see it! I am in Canada, and shipping across the border sometimes has its challenges. Comment section pearl-clutchers are often shocked when they have to pay something upon delivery - and usually, they pay their local sales tax, plus a $10 fee. Sometimes items squeak through the border without any additional charges, but that only ever happens with USPS. If you're using DHL, expect sales tax + $10 (i.e. can the fake outrage - pretend you're buying it off any other damn local site that would have charged you tax and pretend the shipping charge reflects reality, which is likely over $10). Except this time. I was hit with a ~$200 COD charge upon pickup. The usual sales tax, the usual $10 fee.... plus a ~$60 charge clearly marked "duty". Oof! On the bright side, I can now conclusively prove that any fees you're hit with at the border are not actually duty. If you get hit with duty, it'll be itemized as such. Had I known about the proper duty charge, I probably would have passed on this watch. At $629 USD, the watch is not an exceptional value, but is by no means a ripoff - it's a fair price for a watch like this. Paying tax is the responsibility of a good citizen, and the $10 fee undoes a shipping subsidy that likely took place - the cost of doing business. That duty charge made me regret the purchase a little bit, but not enough to want to return it. Drop has had some great bargains on some weird and funky watches (remember the 52mm red Corum Bubble with Satan on it? How about the Swiss Legend Abyssos with a dirty crystal for $140?) - this is not a great bargain. It's the going rate for a solid, handsome GMT watch with a backwards quickset function. If I could go back in time, I may have taken a look at some of those Glycine Airman watches, that are among the best values in iconic, non-homage watches. Compared to something like a Revue Thommen GMT which could have been had at a similar (lower?) price, the Glycine shows much more personality and isn't so much a straight homage. So there.

I had a 48mm Combat Sub I got drop Drop - I remember it being a very well made watch with a fantastic bracelet, very heavy in a good way. Unfortunately for me, I got the black PVD version which felt like I was wearing a watch made of a chalkboard, and it drove me nuts. It's hard to go wrong for a watch like that for $319 USD - there are cheaper Glycines to be had around the $250-$275 range, but they're not Combat Subs. At the price you're looking at, I'd recommend a Combat Sub, or perhaps the Revue Thommen Planet Ocean style Diver.

It's a great GMT diver!
This is a very nice watch, with great functions. The watch has 200m water resist, which is twice the depth rating of the Rolex GMT. Mine is keeping very good time, too. It's about 1/5 the cost of the Tudor GMT, with basically the same functionality. It's a win.

If you can't get a Starbucks, get this coffee instead!
Glycine make a great product. Thickness and aesthetics of the piece are the standouts. Price was a tad high.

Dissapointed... The band had a pressed clasp...
The face is hard to tell if its brown or black... I put it on a leather strap..Wish it had a cyclopse....... It is worth what I paid for since it is all Glycine but will still be getting the blackbay gmt....

Wonderful watch
So far this watch is keeping excellent time and offers easy operation and almost classical good looks, the indexes are easy to read and it’s a looker for sure, downside is the pressed clasp and aluminum bezel but for me that adds to the charm, a 22mm lug opening means this watch is a complete strap monster and can be worn in almost any occasion without being overly bright due to the black and red combination. Classy and thin, this was a must buy for me.
