I read several reviews which said pre Invicta the bracelet used the pin and collar system. Mine didn’t, but the pins were so tight I had to take it to a repair shop to remove a link on one side of the bracelet. I was able to remove the link on the other side okay. I’ve sized a number of bracelets over the years, but I couldn’t get the darn pins out. I even bent two pusher pins before I gave up and took it to a pro. I’ll take recommendations for a good quality set of tools. Mine must have been made out of pot metal. I even used a sizing jig, but it made no difference. As Dirty Harry said, “A man’s got to know his limitations.”
I was glad to see that Glycine still used a sapphire crystal and not the “flame fusion” that other company is known for. In a quick check of the lume, it appears the numerals do not have any form of Luminova. Only the pips on the hour markers light up. I won’t know how long the lume will last until I can check it later. I can only hope it’s Super Luminova, but we all know Invicta can, and does, make changes.
Nowhere in the documentation does it say what movement the watch uses. Cal GL 224 is meaningless. Pre Invicta Glycine used ETA, but some reviewers have said it has changed to the Sellita SW200. The docs say it was made in Bienne, Switzerland. One can only hope.
