Hi Everybody: I’m happy to announce today our Drop + Glycine “Soda Edition” Combat Sub, exclusive to Drop. It’s no mystery that we here at Drop have long been big fans of the Combat Sub, our best selling watch. For a while now we’ve been kicking around ways to do something special with it, and within this exploration soon emerged a very plain question: Should one even improve something that’s already pretty solid? The Combat Sub has long hit the marks: (1) a balanced design with an estimable heritage (2) formidable Swiss build quality (3) a serious dive watch that’s also a practical daily wearer and (4) an overall strong value. It soon became clear that we wished to honor the Combat Sub versus fundamentally change it. One thing that we’ve always loved here at Drop are vintage divers, which is why the classic looks of the Combat Sub hold such appeal. We also especially dig the color language of the period, most prominently Red and Blue color treatments for the bezel. In the ’60s and ’70s, many brands adopted this specific colorway such that watches with this treatment colloquially became known as “Pepsi bezel" watches. As a nod to this, we’re calling this our “Soda Edition” Combat Sub. Glycine enthusiasts may also note a very welcome return to the original Glycine logo. In addition, we’ve also added a cyclops eye magnifier over the date window, a functional retro touch that rounds out the vintage-inspired look of this piece. True to any Combat Sub Automatic, expect the same classic styling, superb finish levels, 200 meter (660 ft) water resistance, triple coated sapphire crystal, and a high beat 26 jewel Swiss Made automatic movement. The first 500 will feature an individual 3 digit serial number on the caseback, only available through Drop. We really hope you like it! Leo

Thanks for adding clarity to your initial question. It seems like there are two questions in fact. To answer the first, the drop was successful and we're delivering. Absolutely. :-) Regarding the second: "Whether Glycine is aware of the issues of their movements"? Unfortunately, that question presupposes quite a bit. What I might suggest, if it's helpful to you, is that based on your prior remarks, it sounds like you're having a tough time selecting between setting, date, and winding on your Glycine Combat Sub, which could possibly mean an issue with the keyless works. If your keyless turns out to be defective, Glycine is a company known to stand by its products, and judging from your comments, it so far sounds like they are. There's a good write-up by Kronometric on the ETA 2800 series keyless works which is the design used by Sellita. Great background material if you're interested. The movement itself is based off of the Sellita SW-200 which has an ironclad reputation for reliability. That's not to say a dud in your case is strictly impossible. I hope this works out for you.

Thanks again and I think I'll take mine to their service center for repair though it might cost me a whole day to make the trip there and collect back thereafter ;-<

They keep revising the no sold from 496>494> now 490, does it mean that we can ask for a refund?

I thought the payments are not collected until the product is shipped?

My vote for a domed sapphire than a cyclops. It's the direction that all brands head for re-issue or vintage items. Anyone? See if we can change Glycline's mind.

I'm new to this, but I guess the price can drop considerably. Hence the name drop. Am I right?

The indices look fresh off an SKX and that's probably the main thing keeping me from buying this

@leopadron Curious to know what stage we're at with the first 500 ordered--those with the serial numbers. Still open, or all spoken for?

I like cleaner dial (no 24 hour markings), larger applied indices (but not as large as the bronze models), distinguishable triangle index at 12 o'clock instead rectangle shared with 6 and 9 o'clock. These changes make it look more like Rolex Submariner, but so be it, it's a cleaner design. As others have mentioned, I wish it had 24-hour GMT hand and bidirectional GMT bezel, I would be all over it even if it was a little more expensive.
