    Anyone have a picture of the Titan (GL0092) on the wrist? Would like to see the red bezel in the real world.

    Just got one of these from Costco, GL0076. Yes, the link pins were very difficult to remove. I bent 2 pins on my cheap pin removal set. Ended up making new tool pins with music wire. I made the pins just long enough to push the link pin past the nub. Shorter and stiffer.

    I usually avoid 3 o'clock crown diver watches. This one seems to conform to my wrist nicely.

    I usually wear a Seiko Diver but for the similar money, I thought I would give a Swiss watch a try. We shall see. 3 seconds fast after 20 hrs run time.

    I looked at a couple more of the GL0076 and all the bezels were off the same amount. The black/white face/carbon fiber band model (don't remember the number) was properly aligned. Almost picked it up ($289 Costco as well) but the ceramic bezel was a bit too shiny. A flat-black bezel with the bright white face and redish accents would have looked better IMO.

    Just taken delivery of a black/grey GL0076 - slightly apprehensive opening the box as I hadn't seen one in the metal. Wow - what a classy looking piece! Early days I know but the
    overall looks, quality and comfort on the wrist are extremely impressive for the price. The dial and bezel look gorgeously different from the usual black - I'd say more grey but very distinctive.
    The watch feels very solid and sits comfortably on my 7.25" wrist. I needed to shorten the bracelet and it took me a while to realise that the screw-heads in the bracelet are decorative. Pushing the pins out as indicated by the arrows was easy and it took just a few minutes to make the necessary adjustment. I've bought and sold most Rolex models and now only have a vintage Air King as a keeper. I've realised that I don't need to invest such large sums when there are such attractive alternatives at a fraction of the price. I've looked at Glycine over the years
    but never bought one. So pleased that finally I own one. Now just waiting for my Squale 'Root Beer' to arrive!

    For some reason no one posts pictures of them lol, but I got you. And I'll add that I am still looking for the right strap combination. The gold is a bit much for me and initially was considering to (and still may) sell or trade. Name:  IMG_6658.jpeg

    I just grabbed a GL0077 from Ashford. Looking forward to getting it. This model has been on my radar for a bit, just never picked it up. This will be my second Sub in the collection. I also have a GL0083 that I really like.
