Remember when seemingly everyone was spotting a wristwatch that was way too big? Did you gasp in horror whenever someone walks by with a gigantic clock on their wrist? If you answered yes to both questions, then this new Glycine is for you. Recently, the trend has shifted to smaller sized watches and they’re slowly making a comeback. Aware of this, Glycine has slowly introduced different Combat Sub variants with a 36mm case size to meet the growing demand for such watches. This new 36mm Combat Sub in an understated sunburst black colour is no different.
Glycine was founded in 1914 by the ingenious Eugène Meylan in Bienne, Switzerland. In the initial years of founding, Glycine specialised in miniature movements, clad in precious metals and platinum cases for women. In the 1930s, Glycine started to launch its own self-winding watches, and subsequently, chronometer watches. Today, Glycine is most well known for its Airman models first launched in 1953. It was the first watch to introduce multiple time zones.

Powering the Combat Sub 36 is the ever-reliable GL224 automatic movement. It is essentially based on the renowned ETA 2824-2 or Selita SW200-1. It has 25/26 jewels, beats at 28,800 BPH and has a power reserve of 38 hours.
Moving away from the dial and case, the Glycine Combat Sub 36 Black Ref. GL0396 comes on an 18mm stainless steel bracelet. It has brushed outer links and polished centre links, adding a touch of class to a well-sized diver. A butterfly deployant clasp rounds off the bracelet, elevating the style of the watch.
Vintage watches were smaller in size. Big watches soon became the trend and smaller cased watches were scoffed at. But they never go out of style, and now they’re back. The Glycine Combat Sub 36 Black Ref. GL0396 is the latest 36mm model from the renowned brand. Vintage sizing is in, and this is one not to be missed.
