Should I or shouldn’t I?

Post by svaglic » Mon Jun 25, 2018 8:52 am

Massdrop has the Glycine Airman 18, 39mm purist for sale for $599.99. Stellita SW300-1 based movement.

Dilemma because of Invicta making them now.
I really hate the thought of giving Invicta a dime, but this is a pretty good deal for this watch. They usually sell for at least $800.00, even for a used one.

Look at that blue

What say you all?
Should I wait it out or get it?

I seem to be a day late in getting them. I would prefer pre-Invicta, I should wait.

Geez, you are correct about the logo. I assumed the new eagle logo would be on that Airman because I assumed it's an IWG era model. Unless this is either old stock which would make it a pre-Invicta model, or it could just be an old photo. Either way, I was wrong.

Glycine is still Glycine, if you like it buy it. Eyal ain't going to make sqaudoush off of it anyhow. It's the crown jewel of IWG, because Glycine is actually swiss. Or at least a hella lot closer than anything Invicta.
