Does it bother anyone that the date window looks bigger than the date wheel? I haven’t seen one up close and in person but it looks to me the lower right of the date window shows the edge of the date wheel?

Wow, that’s a bit over the top reaction. I was just asking a question. Forgive me for wondering.

MattBrandon Question? It was a slanderous accusation! Still too over the top?

MD--listen up! Use your connections with Glycine/Invicta to resurrect the currently unavailable GLYCINE COMBAT 6 VINTAGE (GL0122) with the BLACK dial, full Arabic numerals, and (any-kind-of) strap or bracelet you like! Looks like this:

Doesn't seem like it would be too difficult (fairly simple watch), and I guarantee the watch-world will beat a path to your door--lot's of pent up demand for that baby! Remember: black dial, white luminescent full Arabic numerals--don't fuck it up!

Who's lying? Somebody's lying! As I've mentioned before, watch photography is tricky business and generally the person being tricked is YOU! We give MD a hard time about their product shots all the time, and in this instance it looks like the shot used (MD never takes them) have been toned down quite a bit, rather than tuned up as is normally the case (Hamilton you listening?). To see what I mean, I snagged this shot of the green 10268 model from Gnome's site--big difference compared to MDs shot above, no?

Now what color the watch really is (and who's lying about it) is something you'll have to determine on your own. I myself have been color-deceived on more than one occasion, so I can't emphasize enough the importance of seeking out the widest variety of alternate still and video sources to confirm the true color of any watch you're considering--especially when in-person viewing isn't possible. By the way, Genome is charging $165 dollars more than MD is for the same watch, so what they may lack in representing the true shade of green this watch is or isn't, at least they're trying to save you some GREEN (granted, that expression may not apply outside of the US, but you know what i mean ;- ) Genome also has a nice turntable video on their site that's a must see if you're consider this watch.

RayFDrops photos are more accurate to the colour of the watch faces. I personally have the blue one in my collection, it is a dark blue, not navy dark.

Since this is a rerun.... shall we talk about getting a Dan Henry drop?

Drop doesn't do group buys anymore--that was back in the early 1700s. This is the new millennia. In the interim since then, men have walked on the moon, invented the internet, and impeached trump at least twice. You never got the memo?

yeah that's true, good point (on orient and seiko being here). and drop does make bulk orders to sell stuff to enthusiasts at a cut rate (or at least that was their initial objective as a company). hmm, don't know what to tell ya then. guess guys like DH maybe just don't have an interest in dealing with Drop, or vice versa?

William1969Nice pics of the blue option, I have this identical Sub Com Bronze to you in brown; there appears to be three options in bronze for this watch. I much prefer this one, yours to the current one for sale; I find the lume on this model to be the best of all three, and although I like the Tudor look; much prefer the little bit of difference in this model you and I own. Does look real nice in the blue, maybe I should buy a stable mate for my brown one!! When this model comes around again.

I was thinking I need a waterproof watch because I can’t read the busy dial on my Seiko SNA01, but I can’t fathom alleged dive watches with leather bands and that is a deal-killer.

Some seiko ship with extra silicone band ,even when the main band is steel!!!! So do some other companies. but as the man said a lot of people don't ever even get the watch wet; I know I don't and I have three diver watches!!!

TROPICAL straps are the way to go. Once the genuine items was hard to find and pricey when you did, but now everyone and their brother is selling some version and the prices and color selection has improved greatly. Geckota watch has some nice examples:
