Combat SUB 42 Bronze Heritage Ref. GL0188

A new collaboration between Gnomon and Glycine allows us to offer you the Glycine watches at a special introductory price. Unlike other sellers, our Glycine watches come with a two years Glycine international warranty.

Glycine Combat SUB 42 Bronze Heritage Ref. GL0188

Since its founding by Eugène Meylan in 1914, Glycine has been producing watches at its factory in Bienne, Switzerland.

Meylan was an uncompromising watch engineer who strove for perfection and nothing less. He had a profound understanding of both the market demands and the possibilities offered by the technological advances of the time.

Today, offering excellent value at reasonable prices is an essential part of Glycine's philosophy. The company's strong foundation, coupled with its emphasis on rugged and reliable products, make Glycine a respected name in Swiss watchmaking today.

Applied raised hour markers

Since the early 60s, Glycine has served the market with this line of sturdy and captivating watches, made for critical conditions of wear and use. The precise automatic and chronograph movements are housed in a high-grade steel case of rugged construction, offering excellent value for money.

Combat watches stand out for their classic design, enduring strength and reliability. All through the years, this line of watches has enjoyed unbroken popularity in military and sports circles.

The Combat SUB 42 Bronze Heritage Ref. GL0188 made from marine grade bronze material, CuSn8. With wear, bronze creates a patina over time unique only to the owner. It measures at 42mm and 10.6mm thin for unsurpassed comfort on all wrist sizes. The short lugs to lugs length of 49.5mm together with the unique downward curving lugs meant the watch wraps around the wrist like a pair of gloves.

CuSn8 Bronze Case with Matte Rose Gold Dial Details

What are good looks without performance? The large screw-down crown is easy to grip, and screws in and out without any sense of roughness in the screw threads contributed mainly by the larger than usual screw tube.

Entirely hand finished and Made in Switzerland, the watch is satin brushed throughout to a very high standard, again synonymous with Glycine. Bronze patinates naturally as it oxidizes so that each watch will take on a unique finish over time. The 120 clicks unidirectional rotating bezel clicks positively in place with little play for added confidence. The Combat Sub is water resistant to a modest 200m.
 

Signed Bronze Screwdown Crown

The Combat comes with a sapphire crystal with three layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside for added clarity under different lighting conditions.

The design theme continues onto the dial and probably one of the highlights of the watch. The matte dial transitions from brown to black horizontally, while matching the brown color tone of its bezel. It then matches with matte rose gold applied index for continuity. The applied indexes are filled with the right amount of SuperLuminova for superb glow-in-the-dark. The Glycine signature hands are also rose old plated and filled with matching SuperLuminova.

It is powered by a Glycine GL224 movement which is essentially an ETA2824-2/SW200, operating at 28,800 bph (4 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 25/26 jewels with a power reserve of 38 hours. The Combat Sub comes with a Glycine signed brown fabric-style calf leather strap and buckle.

SuperLuminova For Superb Glow-In-The-Dark

Overall, the Glycine Combat Sub exhibits very great value given the history and built of the watch. We love the use of CuSn8 for the case and bezel. And not to mention the unique transitional dial with matching rose gold plated details in the dial. The contemporary size with unique curved lugs makes this watch ultra comfortable on many wrists. The unique Glycine looks, the ETA2824-2 movement, the sapphire makes this an exceptional bargain and hard to beat. The Combat Sub fits Glycine's philosophy that Mr. Eugène Meylan set out in 1914.
