Superb watch... People should bury the snobbery about Glycine being owned by Invictor as this watch is built phenomenally well.

Great watch, great price
This watch wears amazingly well, almost like a quartz it’s so thin. Super accurate, Swiss made under 400, can’t go wrong.

I bought GL0087 a little over a year ago and I couldn't be happier with it. Mine is very accurate operating with -1/+6 seconds a day. It came with Rubber strap, but it was always my intention to use it with NATO strap. I have taken it swimming (pool and ocean) and to showers without any issue. About a year ago (only after a month after I got the watch) I dropped it while putting it on in a store on hard marble floor. The fall was pretty hard, I thought the crystal had shattered and the watched was ruined. It was hard enough to leave scratches on the bezel (visible between 1 and 2 o'clock). The watch worked but after that incident it started loosing time (up to -20 a day). I called Glycine, they told me to send it in for repair, which I did and they repaired it under the WARRANTY (I had to pay only around $30 for shipping). I got the watch after a month and it was working great again ever since. This watch is so versatile, it works with so many different types of strap options. I started with NATO straps, different colors patterns, then 5 ring Zulu straps, then shark mesh bracelet, then different leather straps, and NDC strap. All work great. The curved down and straight edge (on watch side) lugs really work well with all sorts of straps. I liked it so much that I wanted to get the recent Glycine Combat Sub Bronze, however I was late (hopefully it twill repeat) and I bought Glycine Combat 6 Classic Moonphase drop. Great watch, very happy with it. Here are some pics .

GL0093: Stunning!
Snagged my Golden Eye in the great Drop of July 2019. As everyone says, the canvas strap is stiff af and I perhaps should've gone with GL0173 as the watch came straight off and onto a black nylon zulu. I LOVE IT. Another pleasant surprise besides the ridiculous good looks was the drilled-thru lugs even on the canvas strap version, contrary to the pictures. My wrist is only 6.5inch but my worries over the 50mm lug tip-to-tip were unfounded, it hugs low and curves tight enough and wears fine on the more supple nylon. The angle of my photo suggests a slight overhang but it doesn't in reality. Shipping was sluggish to Western Australia but who cares at this price - Thank you Drop!!

Oops, my apologies. Yeah, I don't know why I assumed you had the 48mm. The 42 sits really well with that curvature. The 48 has almost none and is just a big pie plate. They made it for very big men...

Yours looks fantastic, too! I find while some look better than others, in pictures, they all look really great in person...

Grinding when manually winding watch
Case thickness is nice and thin. Have had many compliments on both GL0077 and Goldeneye. Unfortunately both have developed a grinding/gritty feeling when winding them manually from under a year of ownership. The power reserve on one of them seems to have been reduced to under 12 hours as it stop ticking overnight even after an 8 hour day of wear.

I had a similar issue, I found a service fixed the issue for me. I am wondering if it's an issue with QCing?

Initial Impressions Only
I am slowly making my way up the Automatics quality chain. I started with the very nice ETA powered Victorinox Officer's watch bought thru Drop so my comparisons are to it, even though the Glycine is a diver. First, for those going for a diver for the first time, you will give up roughly 10mm of watch face real estate (diameter) because of the bezel making it a smallish 32mm dial compared to more of a 38mm dial on the Victorinox, but that's what we do for function or style right? Also, I think I would have gone with dots or dashes instead of numbers, like that on the Drop soda version. To me, the numbers are "muted" against the background, they don't pop/contrast as much as my old eye would like, and unless you have young eyes, you're not going to see the military time numbers. The logo is hard to see also, not as pronounced as the old one, or on the Drop soda version. That's probably not a bad thing in the style (GL0078) I got. The lume is not all that useful going from indoor lighting to dark. I have not gone outside to dark or actively charged it. The case shape is very nice, it hugs your wrist! I have a 6.75" wrist and the lug-to-lug size at about 49mm is fine. I think 6.5" wrists would be pushing it. The polished case will show smudges. Now for the bracelet. It feels below the quality of the watch itself. It wiggles a little, it rattles a little, it doesn't feel as "dense". The clasp is milled I think and feels secure. The pins were easy to tap out to resize the bracelet. The clasp also has a spring bar that can be used for a micro-adjustment. UPDATE: After 3 days my watch is only -5 sec, not bad at all! Also, some people interpret the bezel as red. Well, it's more like hot pink, fuchsia so it really really stands out. The lume is much better going from a bright light source to dark as expected. UPDATE 2: After living with it for a few weeks now, I'm liking it more and more. I changed my mind about the bracelet first impression. It's perfectly adequate for a watch of this caliber. The case and bracelet are super comfortable. The watch stays put without having to be overly tight. I love to wind the watch using the crown. It has just the right amount of resistance. The bezel remain hard to turn making it less useful around the house, brewing beer, etc. Maybe it will loosen a bit over time. So what's left, the dial and hands. I'm still not a fan of the dial numbering design and the seconds hand could use a bit of contrast - can't see the bottom of it since it blends in with the seconds tick marks. Overall, I'm glad I bought it. It's hard to go back to the Victorinox even though it has a much bigger dial and more easily readable numbers. I'm now hooked on divers (a pun?). Looking at Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and of course Omega Seamaster 300M. The latter would be my endgame watch.

Stopped working 11 month old / look elsewhere
Less then 90days total on wrist and it needs warranty repair. Search the net for stem issues and you will spend your $ on something else. Oh and I have to pay to ship back for warranty, smh.

Then a pitty that I was not checking massdrop regularly :/but still a good bargain for somebody from outside the US. Even after the tax is added by the customs.

I was told the lowered price was a Christmas to New Years sale. Wished I jumped on a second Combat Sub then. Mine is nearly 2 years old. Accuracy is within COSC specs. Better than my Breitling Chronometers.
