Powered by Ameriquartz... the Brillier ‘Americana’ Chapter 3 watches
Powered by AMERIQUARTZ movements (Built Better in the USA ) the Brillier ‘Americana’ Chapter 3 Timepieces just announced the launch of their “Infantry” and “Air Wing” editions. These retro styled watches are a tribute to the brave American men and women that won the Second World War.
The robust, all metal movements,which are built in Fountain Hills , Arizona, incorporate highly precise advanced American technology components in their assembly. With the advent of these quartz movements from FTSUSA, there is no doubt that the timepieces powered by Ameriquartz modules will enjoy a very long life span. These metal movements can be repaired easily if a fault develops over the years. Availability of spare parts and serviceability make these quartz movements indestructible. The low consumption design provides longer battery life.
The Americana Collection from Brillier Watch Company, USA, is keeping its commitment of increasing American built components in their watches with each chapter...
Glycine Soda + Drop watch defective and poor service
I recently received a Glycine watch that I had purchase a while ago.
When I received the watch, it would not run. I took it to a watch repair person who told me that the watch was defective.
I contacted Drop support which put me in contact with the Glycine watch repair service. It took a long time for the service center to respond. They finally responded and I was hocked to find out that I had to pay $32 to have the watch looked at for warranty repair plus I had to pay the $20+ shipping.
This is not the first watch that I have purchased through Drop. But this experience indicates to me that the risk of buying watches through Drop is just too great so that it is not worth it.
Not only the time that I had to spend to get this taken care of, but it will be months before I get the watch back. Plus it cost me almost $50 to send in the watch. This is on a $400 watch.
I see that the watch is readily available on watch sites for the same price.
Buying watches through Drop is...
I just noticed that the Glycine home page has only the Airman and Combat lines, and both seem to have fewer models than previously (Combat Sub Aquarius is gone, for instance, as well as their larger Combat Subs). The Incursore line, a sort of field style watch named after the Italian special forces that I kind of like, is completely gone, as are two other product lines.
The page from a year ago:
I guess Invicta finally got around to eliminating less profitable products?
Model: Prospex Solar Diver
Reference Number: SNE537, SNE535, and SNE533
Case Material: Stainless steel
Dial Color: Blue, grey, or camo green
Lume: Yes, on indexes, bezel dot, and hands
Water Resistance: 200m, ISO 6425 compliant
Strap/Bracelet: Matching silicone rubber strap
Price is $450. I mean, seems like another great bang for your buck. Seiko FTW.
about dang time, they've been building up to this since the re releases of the Marlin classic, then related models, and now for Fall extending to the Waterbury lines. This is a welcome player to the 'affordable' market space, I dig them.
